Whether you want to become a professional DJ or just looking to have some fun by mixing music on your computer, you will need the right tools. Sound processing applications are well represented today and are widely used by users who want to have their audio track improved in a certain way. Operating systems are well equipped with many tools. However, Sound Recorder does not offer a lot of features. Because of this, people need to process their audio tracks additionally. I will present several applications that will help you compose electronic music or remake existing audio material.
LMMS is a free multi-platform music creation programme. Unlike other programmes, LMMS offers a full package of MIDI keyboards, a modern user interface, and a large number of different options for making music at any taste. With this programme, a user can create music on a computer using the options of creating melodies and rhythms, synthesising and mixing sounds, and finally editing the final product. The app features a large assortment of various plugins for instruments and sound effects, and it also includes VST and SoundFont support.
It is an open-source editor with a clean interface, great features, and multi-platform support. The application is very rich in tools and at the same time, it is highly flexible. The toolbar and workspace are not overwhelmed, which is achieved by placing most of the functions, such as effects, editing, and project management in the drop-down menu. Some of the supported audio files are WAV and AIFF as well as OGG and MP3. The programme includes the amplitude-envelope editor, adjustable spectrum, and a frequency analyser. Some of the existing effects include bass boost, wah wah, and noise removal.
Oceanaudio is an easy-to-use, fast and functional audio editor which is supported on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux operating systems. You can find it in both standard and portable edition. It is based on the Ocean Framework, a powerful library that has been designed to make it easier for users to work with audio files. Using simple algorithms, this programme does not consume much system resources, so it can run in the background and with multiple files. The interface contains many tools for creating and editing your own tunes. Some of them include erasing, copying, reversing certain parts, resampling, correcting metadata information, inserting audio filters, etc.
Mixxx allows you to compose your own music and remake existing audio files. You can use the programme for a live mix or you can create, modify, and record everything before going live. Mixxx supports a control of two external gramophones, and the support includes even an analogy gramophone. If you need help with the application, there is a fantastic and detailed user manual that will teach you everything you need to know. If you do not like the graphics interface, you can change the skin and customise it to suit your taste. Anyone who has ever worked with any music player on a computer should not have a problem overcoming the basic steps in Mixxx.
