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.


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


  • Functions are limited on demo version

Cool Edit Pro 2.1 is a digital audio editing platform used by amateur music enthusiasts or even professionals. As a novice user, it helped me tremendously. This application enabled me to edit and mix existing audio files and to create my own songs. It provided a variety of high quality sound effects that can be used in different projects. It has the standard features like combining audio files, cutting, pasting and cropping. I totally have control over the audio’s waves and I can edit it the way I want. It also has the capability to export different audio formats. Personally, the best feature of Cool Edit Pro is it can maintain the quality of the audio file even after editing it. The software’s neat and organized interface helped me work my way around it easily. On the other hand, the demo version has a 30-minute time limit per session. It is important to note that the save and clipboard functions were also disabled. Moreover, the demo version is not supported by RealAudio and other key features are restricted. Though there are certain limitations in the demo version, getting the full version will make you appreciate and enjoy the benefits of having your audio files sound great and professional. Don’t forget to play with your creativity and imagination while editing. You will never know where this software could lead you.


  • Keeps and maintains the audio quality
  • Capable of exporting various audio formats


  • 30 minutes/session limit for demo version
