View Full Version : Good sound editor for Linux needed

13-01-2003, 04:14 PM
I do a lot of recording of sounds into my PC, and now that I'm slowly moving everything I do over to Linux, this was next on the list.

I am looking for an editor similar to GoldWave that'll let me record from line-in and save it as an MP3!



BTW - Has anybody else noticed that with Lycoris Dekstop/LX that the version of ICQ used expects you to have your contacts stored locally?! Or have I missed a setting to geet them off the server somewhere?

If you are talking about LICQ, version 1.2?? supports getting contacts from the online server but you'll need to tick an option to do that.

Could just use ICQ2Go which requires a java-enabled browser. http://go.icq.com/

How about trying to get GoldWave to work with WINE if possible? If not there would be a lot of sound editors for linux.

Yes, Im using ICQ2Go at the moment..
WINE... Could do.. would rather a native linux proggy though :)

Try freshmeat (http://freshmeat.net/) for new Linux applications. I did a search at this site for 'sound editor' and found 28 programs.

Or try google with "sound recording linux". There are some good looking things there.

I haven't tried it with recoding yet, but Audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/about.php?lang=en) should work.

Have just started playing around with sound using the inbuilt tools in GNOME and with DAP (Digital Audio Processor).

There is a useful site at http://www.bright.net/~dlphilp/. Dave Phillips has also written a book on using sound with Linux - see:
