    Hello!

    What would you suggest as the best sound editor for Linux?

    I am fed up of Windows and am happy to use Linux for web and email but I need an audio editor. Currently I use CoolEdit Pro. I like its large host of features and ease of use.

    I would still use Windows for Cubase SX 3 but I don't want to reboot in to windows every time I want to make a frequency sweep/white noise measurement or edit out something from an audio file.

    I don't suppose audio programs will work in a windows emulator will they? How about ETF? I wouldn't have thought that was so time dependent on the audio output. Anyone tried it in Linux under an emulator?

    Thnaks for the advice!

    Well that looks bloody good!

    I'm sure in a year or two it will have all the features of every other multitrack software. I will have to give it a go. It does look more like a recorder than an editor though..

    I know of Audacity but it isn’t really as good as CoolEdit. Suck it and see I suppose. Any other suggestions?

    Wow, noticed the date after posting this...

    Did you mean sound editor or DAW? Ardour is not a sound editor.

    Here's some:

    Rezound is popular one, looks like this:
