Online Audio Editors
An Audio Editor For Humans
While Beautiful Audio Editor is a comprehensive piece of software, sometimes all you need is a simple edit to a cut out a part of the song. Sodaphonic keeps things quick and easy to use. After importing an MP3 or OGG file, you can immediately trim, cut, paste, and delete parts of your audio. You can also apply a fade-in or fade-out, silence parts of your track, or reverse an audio file. It supports opening files from your Dropbox account and recording audio directly.
Specifically Designed To Edit Audio Sample
Unlike the other tools on this list, Hya-Wave is specifically designed to edit audio samples. The interface is minimalist and intuitive, with your standard cut, trim, and paste functions and a set of straightforward keyboard shortcuts. You can import audio files either by adding them locally or recording them from your browser.
Hya-Wave’s strength lies with the ease of applying, removing, and customizing audio filters. It boasts 18 filters, including feedback delay, normalization, and an array of audio pass filters.
A Browser-Based Audio Editor
TwistedWave Online is probably the most widely known software on this list. It’s the online version of a fairly popular paid Mac and iOS audio editing tool. Even though it’s free, the online version doesn’t skimp on the features found in the desktop edition. This includes a host of VST effects, as well as its core effects, which include amplify, normalize, pitch, speed, and sampling rate conversion.
