- Sound editing functions include cut, copy, paste, delete, insert, silence, trim and more.
- Audio effects include, amplify, normalize, equalizer, envelope, reverb, echo, reverse, sample rate conversion and much more.
- Includes its own CD ripper/Burner.
Fact: The program is designed to be a very easy and intuitive to use for audio editing. Within minutes you will be able to open or record an music file and edit it. But if you take time to explore the other features you will find many powerful tools for editing audio designed with the professional sound engineer in mind.
This sound editing software is a full featured audio editor for Windows. It lets you make and edit music, voice and other audio recordings. When editing audio files you can cut, copy and paste parts of recordings and, if required, add effects like echo, amplification and noise reduction. Music Editor Free works as a wav editor or mp3 editor but it also supports a number of other file formats including vox, gsm, au, ogg, wmv and more.

Easy MP3 Tools
Easy MP3 Tools is a user-friendly, easy-to-use yet powerful set of tools for tagging single or multiple mp3 files, reading and creating .m3u, .wpl, and .pls playlists, and a comprehensive array of file renaming options in various combinations, including the renaming of files for mobile devices, capitalizing and replacing words, renaming of files by extracting the information from their ID tag, and much more. A simple MP3 player is also provided to allow you to hear or test the songs while using Easy MP3 Tools. All this in one program, each option easily accessed via the same program by pressing on the required tab.

Have you ever wanted to know exactly what BPM (Tempo) a song was at? Well, there's a better way then guessing, and TapTempo is the tool to do it. Simply run TapTempo, play the song, and press the spacebar on every beat; after a few seconds, you'll see the tempo (along with other info) displayed!

Frequency Converter
One of the most common problems when you're working with an EQ is identifying exactly what it is you want to tweak. Freq takes some of the guesswork out of the process, by allowing you to easily convert between frequencies and notes, which can then be used to help target specific areas in the mix. Freq also outputs 'cents' based from A0 (27.5hz), for eq's that do not use named frequencies, and supports fractional notes +/- 50 cents.

Rhyme is, if you couldn't guess by the name, a rhyming program - or better yet, a rhyming dictionary program. Type in any word (it knows more than 100,000!), tell it how many syllables to match (or phonemes), and click 'Rhyme'; it's that simple. Words appear in the dialog below, and simply use the one that works for whatever you're doing. It can rhyme words forward, backwards, and with matching syllable counts.

Delay Calculator
Have you ever wanted to get a tap delay sounding just right, and fiddled for hours with millisecond delay, trying to get it tight? Or have you ever wanted to quickly know what the delay time should be for a certain BPM (tempo)? If so, then behold the Delay Calculator! A cool little ditty that you just load up, type in the tempo, and it does all the work, giving you delay times down to a 32nd! Superfast, supersmall, and supereasy to use - that's our motto here at AnalogX! Both GUI and command line version of this utility are available.

Song Calculator
If you've ever done commercials, or worked with doing music for video, then you know how difficult it can be figuring out just what BPM (tempo) to use, and how long it will be. SongTime is a down-and-dirty little app to take the drudgery and guesswork out of figuring it out! Just run SongTime, enter in the BPM, Beats/Measure, and number of measures, and it will tell you not only how long it will be, but also frame and keyframe times as well. Then, just play with the BPM or any of the other parameters, until the time is right where you want it. Both GUI and commandline version of this utility are available.

Whether you're serious or causal about listening to MP3's, you've probably realized that managing all the files can be a real nightmare - that's where AnalogX TagMaster comes in. TagM lets you edit the ID3 tag in MP3 files, which contains information like the name of the artist, song, album, etc - but it doesn't just stop there. TagM also can rename files using any of the information inside the files (including bps and sample rate) making it much easier to find the song you're after. Best of all, it can perform any of these operations on single files, or every file in your MP3 directory...

Scope records audio and displays an oscilloscope waveform of the sound. If the window is minimised, the waveform is shown in the system tray.

PodLift is a freeware program which allows you to browse the contents of any iPod, listen to any tracks you want, and transfer tracks to your computer, either to the directory of your choice or directly into iTunes. You can configure a few basic things, such as whether to let iTunes copy your music for you, have PodLift copy it, or have PodLift copy it and not add it to iTunes at all (iTunes is not actually required to use PodLift). You can also configure how files are saved (whether to create \artist\album directories, and what information to include in the filename). PodLift uses the Apple QuickTime COM control to play tracks, so you need to install QuickTime to use PodLift. PodLift has no ads, does not access the internet at all and does not change any settings in your computer.

DSpeech is a TTS (Text To Speech) program with functionality of ASR (Automatic Speech Recognition) integrated. It is able to to read aloud the written text and choose the sentences to be pronounced upon the vocal answers of the user. It is specifically designed to provide quickly and directly the functions of better practical usefulness that are requested to this kind of programs. In the meantime the invasivity and the spent of resources are minimal. (DSpeech does not install itself, is very light, it starts in a second and doesn't write anything on the register).

Frequency Analyzer
It splits inputted sound from the microphone into basic frequencies and displays them in real. You can whistle to the microphone and see the plot going up and down with the change of pitch. The program uses the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) algorithm.
