There’s no easier-to-use or more complete consumer-level audio
recording, ripping, editing and burning suite on the market than
Cakewalk’s pyro Audio Creator 1.5. A lot of what it covers is
available in freebies, but I was impressed by the intuitive audio
editor/recorder that includes a number of pro-level plugins for
processing your audio. It’s easier to use than Audacity and the
noise reduction is very effective for the price.
