I have been a Mac user for the last 4 years as I have a MacBook Pro and love it. I have been a PC user for over 20 years and hate it. I am looking forward to burying my PC, but there are a couple of applications I find easier to do on the PC than the Mac and one is audio editing. I am by no means a professional, but I use a pc program called Goldwave which allows me to take all kinds of audio formats from wav, flac, mp3, etc. and increase the pitch, change the volume or quality of sound, put in cue points so I can split, cut, trim audio files and merge audio files. I also encode my mp3 files with the lame codec. I have been experimenting with audacity, but it doesn't seem to have the same user friendly interface that goldwave has and when I change the pitch, it doesn't allow me to sample the audio at different parts of the track but rather just at the beginning. Believe it or not, these little details add up. Maybe I don't know how to use audacity as it was meant to be used or maybe there is a program I don't know about. Thanks for your help in advance.
