The Most Suitable Sound-Editor for Making Your Own Soundtracks in Windows

By Maria Bernabe

On Tuesday, June 3, 2014

I’ve continued using this cool software in one form, or another since 2000. The current and earlier version 2.1 is the completion of years of development and is reliable. Simple to manage the platform, essentially if the users recognize how to run a mixer and recorder, the there would no difficulty working with the Cool Edit Pro mixer and recorder. If I intend to clean up different tracks or record and mix a song, Cool Edit does the job right.

This software is rather small. It runs pretty smoothly on any computers. I've only had a problem on a couple of times, which I doubt is more due to Windows problems. I operate Cool Edit Pro 2.1 on a Pentium 3 Windows XP Service Pack 2. Also, it is easy for me to record 10 tracks at a time with my M-Audio Delta 1010 LT sound card.

The only thing I need to have this software is that it would be better if there is a MIDI support and framework for saving to MIDI Time Code (MTC). I also wish the video assimilation would be better on this program, but I think that’s more a restriction from when the time this software was made.

It can clean up audio tracks. It’s very simple to discard hiss, and with the noise reduction features, it easily detects problem sound that was already recorded as quiet and erase those frequencies.

Pros

  • Can record more than 20 file formats
  • Can achieve 5.1 surround mixes

Cons

  • Some effects could sound much better

I love listening to music. I enjoy retro, rap, jazz and even pop. Good thing I was introduced to Cool Edit Pro. It is one of the mostly used sound editing programs today. It allows you to edit and create songs depending on your liking. There are also different sound effects that you can work on. You can process audio files and add equalizations, distortions and many more. What makes it stand out among the rest is its multi-track capability. It can run 64 tracks simultaneously. It also offers sound filters using Digital Signal Processing Effect and even accepts plug-ins which gives it additional functions. Once you are done with your music, you can convert it to various formats depending on your preference. Cool Edit Pro is like having your own recording studio with the use of your PC. Even though I’m just a beginner, I did not have any problems when I started using it. It is straightforward and simple to use.

Pros

  • Simultaneous tracks are possible with this program
  • Provides Digital Signal Processing Effect (DSPE)

Cons

  • Functions are limited on demo version
