Hi guys,

I'm looking for a program to edit existing sounds. For now I really only need it to do envelopes, EQ, reverb, and maybe some other filters. I won't be using it for music.

I was thinking Sony Sound Forge or Steinberg Wavelab. Are those good choices ? What do the pros use to create/modify their sound effects ?

Thanks.

What is you budget and use case?

For the cheap end I can recommend Reaper.fm + some free VST plugins that you can find on the web.

Wavosaur and Audacity are pretty standard free ones under windows.

I prefer wavosaur (audacity never really "felt" right to me for some reason) but they are both pretty functional

There's a lot of capable choices, so your decision will come down to what you'll be most comfortable working with. You can take a look at the two programs you mentioned and download a demo to get a feel for how they work, I personally use Adobe Audition for a lot of my sound editing.

As a free alternative, the already mentioned Audacity would be a good option to look into and it might even be just enough to match your current needs.
