Currently, I have been looking at a variety of sound softwares. I have become utterly dissatisfied with Audacity because every time I do a noise reduction, I can hear what I like to call computer noise or talk. It’s those high level sweaking sounds that no one else in my department can hear. However, it is very disturbing to me.
Now our department wants to begin doing podcasting, so I have come to the conclusion that Audacity can no longer suffice. Since I cannot use GarageBand (because I am on a PC using Adobe Flash CS4, Articulate, Captivate, etc.), I would love to see opinions on the following:
- WavePad Sound ($76, free trial)
- Adobe’s Soundbooth CS4 ($199, free trial)
- Sony’s Sound Forge Pro 10 ($274.95, free trial)
- Sony’s Sound Forge Audio Studio ($54.95, free trial)
If yours is not listed here please give me some suggestions. What do you use? What do you like about it? What don’t you like about it? What do you wish it could do?
