Why need a sound editor?
Everyone doesn't have an attractive voice. But even an ordinary voice can be made magical with the help of some proper tools. These things are a good recorder and a good recording software to edit the voice!
Suppose you have an amazing voice and you recorded something on your mobile phone and the mobile phone on which you recorded is not a high-end one. So the question is how your amazing voice will sound on that?
The answer you would give is, "it didn't sound like my real voice". Now suppose you don't have a good voice and you recorded something on your mobile phone. But this time suppose you are having one of the best smartphones in your hand. So the question arising is how your voice will sound on that?
"It didn't sound like my real voice. It sounds better than that!" would probably be your answer. This implies that your recorder voice's quality totally doesn't depend upon your attempt but also depends upon the device with which your record.
Similarly, a good sound editor can help to take your superb or disturbed voice to the next level.
This article is about a free sound editing software that brings magic in your recorded voice. This article is about Free Audio Editor 2014!
Free Audio Editor 2014
Free Audio Editor Version 2014 is a very popular recording software which allows you to record anything and edit it with its powerful editing tools. You can record with or without a background track.
Unlike many studio recording software, there is no need of doing a crash course to learn how to use the software. The software is very user-friendly and easy to use. Its layout has ideal positioning of edit menus and wide spaces for doing work over recorded voice which helps a user understand the workability of the software in just a few minutes. This makes Free Audi Editor 2014 a good alternative over the paid audio recorders and editors like Ableton Live 9, Gold Wave Editor Pro and Haunted House.
I didn't understand why the Gold Wave Editor is a paid one when it seems to be similar to Free Audio Editor 2014. In fact I think that the Free Audio Editor 2014 is better than that!
See the similarity among the Free Audio Editor 2014 and the paid Gold Wave Editor Pro recording software in the below provided screenshots.

Cons of Free Audio Editor 2014
Below are some top cons faced by a user of the software:
1. It often hangs in the middle.
2. Voice recording quality decreases with a background music.
3. Unable to convert a "high preset quality kept" saved .wave file. Problem faced with format factory.
To resolve the problem, load the .wave file in the Free Audio Editor and use "save as" to the file again. Don't keep a high preset quality while saving. Format Factory would now convert it to any extension. Have fun!
A misspelled word
You might not have pondered on that misspelled word (see the screenshot below) in the Free Audio Editor 2014. It is "Effects", not "Effcets"!
I hope that new version of the software will be "misspelling free".
This was all about the Free Audio Editor 2014. I recommend this free recording software instead of buying a paid one like Gold Audio Editor Pro but you have to keep in consideration the cons too. So, first look on the both sides of the coin and then toss it!
