I enjoy editing and creating audio (usually stuff my friends play that I mix), and while playing around with ALSA the other day my microphone started working all of a sudden (I really am not sure what I did to make it work, but I'm happy all the same).
I usually use Audacity to edit songs/sounds because it seems like the best one out there (and I have a bit of experience with it and Adobe Premier, which has a similar feel to Audacity). For some reason, however, Audacity won't let me record. Sound recorder will, but not Audacity.
Anyway, I was wondering what other audio programs everyone uses with Linux and why.
Also, if anyone has used Adobe Soundbooth, is there any program on Linux that works vaguely like it? (It's really one feature I was looking for that Soundbooth has: it can render an audio clip into an odd-looking map that shows different frequencies, and lets you use tools to patch the sound visually. It's a really cool feature, but I don't have money right now to buy soundbooth. Or the patience to boot Windows to use it.)
