Audio Editing Software

Audio editing is essential for creating good podcasts and good video.

You can utilise audio editing applications to make few quick cuts or attempt to fix poor audio with a lot of noise.

Audio editing applications typically come with effects and filters to help you improve your audio. It is up to you to adjust the parameters of these effects to restore audio correctly.

This page lists the audio editing applications I use frequently to record audio for my YouTube channels.
