Well, I seem to have missed out on yet another fine offering from GOTD! I was offline yesterday and just found this in my inbox. Appears each time I am away for a day or so, I miss out on a really great bit of software..and, ass I'm sure anyone involved in using Audio will second, you can never have too many programs, as each tends to have some unique feature or tool all the other lack..or something it does better than most.

As has been mentioned above elsewhere..Audacity is a good tool in own right and one everyone should have in their toolbox..but I am sorry I missed this one as it would have complimented everything else I already have!

I can only hope GOTD can arrange to give this away again at some future date again!

It took me 3 hours to download - very slow dial up here!!! - then on install there is only Setup.exe, which calls up this website & times out immediately. No programme, no joy.
Ah well, have to use Audacity after all, & I was so looking forward to it

Can this program remove vocals from audio files and leave the
instrumental for potential use in karaoke?

Great program! Installed nicely on Vista Home Premium and Windows 7 Home Premium.

I do a lot of conversions of audio files recorded at our Sunday church services and put them on the web, which requires converting from CD to MP3 but at the same time keeping the size reasonable for downloading. In the past, I used CDEX to extract, WavePad Sound Editor for eding, then Format Factory to convert, and had to target a RAM disk during the final extraction to prevent drop-outs. (I suspect this is due to disk housekeeping since the source and target drive are on the same channel - not sure)

Anyway, now I have -ONE- program that does it all. Thank you, GOTD, for making life simpler. The editing interface is exactly like WavePad so I felt right at home. Had it not been free, I would probably have bought it if I had known it existed before today just for the convenience.

I encountered a very basic problem with this onw: there was no sound when playing a file! In contrast, when opening the same MP3 or WAV files with Sound Forge, the sound worked perfectly.

I looked all over the place for an mute button or an option to select different speakers, but to no avail. Puzzling! Any ideas?

Be aware: I recorded a song through the system. I selected "Save As" while the file was playing, the program went through the process of saving (choice of quality, file name, etc.), but it did not save the file. When I closed the file it did not alert me that the file was not saved and I lost it. Finally, a program even stupider than I am... ;-)

This program has been around before at GOTD, although through different iterations by the developer (and a couple others who try disguising themselves with slightly different skins). It’s a nice basic tool for any user who is interested in tinkering with multimedia programs, those dreaming of becoming rock stars, or flat-out working at a recording studio.

Now for those ready to take on the next level in audio related programs, I would suggest trying Kristal Audio Engine. It’s not really an alternative to today’s GOTD, but a more advanced program for those interested in audio engineering. It’s a powerful 16 track recorder, audio sequencer, mixer, 3-band parametric EQ, unlimited undo/redo, and a whole lot more. It’s ideal for someone interested in with recording, multi-track mixing, and mastering digital audio. The best part is that it’s open source (i.e. free). You’ll find it at:

I have this from the last time it was given away. It is ok though not anything special. It certainly is useful from time to time when I need to do a quick edit. Also, last time I got it it was back at version 12.0 and the serial number has worked to upgrade to each new version which is nice. Thanks CyberPower Tech.

The first thing to know about CyberPower Audio Editing Lab is that it uses the NCT code libraries... whenever a converter or ripper has been offered on GOTD that used the NCT stuff, some people [usually on Vista] couldn't get the app to work. I've never had a problem with the NCT files, but enough have that I felt it worth starting with the warning. Otherwise as a GOTD offer CyberPower Audio Editing Lab isn't a bad deal, but there's too much, better competition in the home audio software market to justify the asking price. It's a crowded field & many of the same companies behind the stuff that pro studios use, sell home or intro software versions that can be downright cheap on sale [I've seen $0 after MIR] & carry upgrade privileges should you get serious [Sony in the past has had very reduced upgrade pricing for the 1st month when new pro versions come out. Don't know about the future, but in the past you could get Sound Forge ($375 MSRP) for ~ $100 that way]. Also media oriented software suites are getting better about the audio apps they bundle -- I just bought Nero Multimedia Suite 10 for $35 US, & while I haven't really used them yet, the 2 audio apps that come with it look very promising [I got the $35 price as an upgrade from an OEM disc (Nero Essentials) that sells for $3, & I used a coupon I found on-line]. If you want to get maybe a bit serious from the start, keep an eye on things like the clearance section at musiciansfriend.com, as well as their Stupid Deal of the Day -- right now they have Mackie Tracktion 3 Ultimate Bundle with a [maybe inflated?] MSRP of $319 for $49.99. At any rate, other than the free Audacity, Wavosaur, & Traverso DAW, that's sort of the "lay of the land", hopefully giving everyone [just] an idea of what's available & maybe giving the developers a bit of a nudge to consider dropping their pricing.

Looking at what CyberPower Audio Editing Lab doesn't have I think is useful for figuring out what it can do well for you. It doesn't have much format support, so it's not good as a converter. It doesn't have a bit depth setting {i.e. 8, 16, 24), so recording for higher quality or smaller size [e.g. for use on-line podcast etc.] is probably out. For creating music you'll want/need DX &/or VST plug-in support, which is missing -- for more serious work you'll also be looking for filter FX routing [think of the digital equivalent to all the patch cords connecting the boxes & other equipment on a stage or in a studio], real-time preview of FX/filters, & you will sooner or later need multi-track support. I'm NOT saying CyberPower Audio Editing Lab is bad -- it's not at all -- but these are the sorts of things it simply won't do. What it's good for is adding fade in/out, trimming, & more minor audio FX when you don't want to bother with something more involved -- it's sort of like Windows Paint compared to Photoshop, being capable enough for many tasks, with plenty of apps to choose from between those two extremes.

Installation can be either good or bad, depending on whether you already installed a GOTD app (probably a video converter) that uses the NCT code libraries or not. If you've already got them installed you're looking at the program's folder [17 files at ~16 MB], Start Menu shortcuts, plus in the registry an added key for the app, one for uninstall, & optionally a couple of keys to integrate today's GOTD with Windows' Explorer. If you don't already have the NCT stuff OTOH, you could be looking at 3500 new registry entries + 12 new files in Windows' system folder. There's also a slight chance that the NCT files will conflict with something you've already got installed -- they have taken over for a couple of older files on my XP install, but caused no problems & in fact perform the same or better than what was used beforehand, but I cannot say that will always be the case for everyone.

Some comments talk about stuff like recording vinyl/tape collections -- that can get involved or complicated if/when you're trying to get rid of noise, get the levels right, compensate for any frequency bias, split the songs into files etc., & that can be Much, much easier if you use an app set up for that purpose with presets that'll work most of the time -- the audio recording app that comes with Roxio's Creative 2010 for example not only has a wizard type GUI, but shows you pictures on how to hook up your turntable or tape deck. These usually home oriented recording apps can detect individual songs, can filter noise & so on -- because of that it's easy to recommend them over CyberPower Audio Editing Lab for that kind of recording -- you'll pay more [vs. free] but on a project that can take quite some time (depending on your collection), it can be well worth it. Something else to bear in mind is that connecting a tape deck or turntable (or a mic for that matter) directly to your PC/laptop is maybe not the best way to go about it -- using a small mixer or recording interface can make things go much better without the same concerns about voltages, plus you're usually able to adjust input levels, & in many cases just by moving that part of the process out of your PC (where there's an awful lot of electrical noise that will show up in your recordings) makes a difference... Many of these "boxes" come with software so you may not need anything else. A final thought is to not overlook what you already have -- if for example you have a killer home audio setup, but lack a way to get your vinyl or tape into your PC/laptop, a decent couple of mics & a preamp &/or small mixer might sound better recorded than something you massaged for hours in hundreds of dollars worth of software.... just a thought.

I downloaded and installed successfully and my first objective was to test the TEXT TO SPEECH. It worked fine, but CyberPower Audio only offers 1 voice option, which is Microsoft Anna.

I need more voice options. I did not find anything in the HELP files or online at CyberPower's support as to how to add other voice engines.

If I cannot find more V2T voices to add, this will be a possible delete.

@ #19 KETER: Where did you get the Text to Spped voices, Serena and Daniel? Did you use them on Cyberpower Audio?

Feels nice to use, and responsive. Like the dynamic range compression effect especially. I think this might well become my favourite audio editor. Love the timed record function. Wish I had it last night - there was a show ...

I suggest improving the scrub function - at present I can't tell the difference between scrub and play.

I can't figure how to used this software to do the following "key feature" as promised:

Record tapes, vinyl LPs

There doesn't seem to be any function allowing connection of an LP recording lathe or tape recorder, or any output directed to such devices.

Anybody actually recorded their own LP with this? Looks like it only copies already recorded LPs, doesn't record them.

I think people are being a bit too tough on poster #1, ProfVanSmack. Any time there is an audio giveaway, it does seem a large number of comments mention Audacity and other freeware. And he does say today's Giveaway should be evaluated on it's own. Sounds more like to me he's saying, that he already knows a lot of people will be suggesting Audacity, and not always assume that since Audacity does a lot, not to think it does everything today's Giveaway does. I think he's saying not to assume just because you have Audacity, it's not worth looking at today's offering.He did give it a B+.

As far as freeloader, maybe either he wasn't thinking, or maybe English is not his native language, in that respect I can see someone innocently posting "freeloader" deriving from "FREE downLOAD" and adding an -er.

I do agree with the part that he had only minutes to evaluate this offering, unless he by chance in that time found functionality that the real freebies don't have. He could have already bought it before today's Giveaway, or maybe it was offered in the past?

Now I'm going to download this, looks like a good one.

Yup, she's a goodun!

Got a merge feature that Audacity doesn't seem to have, so instead of tedious copy and paste I was able to merge some audio message files I've been wanting to do for ages.

Bit slow doing it, but I suppose it's a big job. Gave me a chance to get in some solid coffee drinking.

For vinyl record album ripping, the basic needs are just a working record player, your computer and software like Cyberpower Audio Editing Lab (or alternates).

The tricky part is getting the output of your record player into your PC. If your record player feeds an amplifier that has a "tape out" connection for recording to a tape deck, you can get a RCA plug to 1/8" stereo adapter cord from someplace like Radio Shack and connect the Tape Out connection to the Line In input on your soundcard. You will have to adjust your soundcard input volumes to make sure you're not clipping the audio as you record.

You typically can't just plug the turntable into your PC because the output levels are just not high enough, and phono amplifier also has specialized equalization that you'd be bypassing. Some audio editors provide this equalization in software so that you can use any amplifier and don't need one with a Magnetic Cartridge/Phono input.

The Ion Turntable (and there are others out there) is designed with all this in mind so you can just plug the turntable into your PC and get right to capturing and editing.

There are more details, but I'm sure a search on "LP to digital" or something like that will pull up a ton of articles.

#21 Rustem recommended Twins Power Sound Editor Free, which I hadn't heard of. I went to their website, and guess what? Their address is 3772 Hilltop Rd, Carson City, Nevada 84701. CyberPower Tech's address is: 3662 Hilltop Rd, Carson City.

Even the How To's are similar: compare Power Sound Editor's "How to Record Streaming Audio" with Cyberpower's "How to Record Stereo Mix" on their respective websites.

It is not unusual for a product to be marketed under different paths and avenues, but I just thought you should know...

Since it is free today, it may be worth a shot, but I also don't like the recorders that are based on the NCT DLL libraries (thanks CompNetTeach!) so this one's not for me.

For a true German product, I can recommend Acon Digital's Acoustica, although it's not free, and not to be confused with Acoustica's SpinItAgain mentioned above, though that's a good product, too. Acon Digital's product supports high bit rates, VST/DirectX plugins and more noise reduction, but is not free.

It seems to be a good program except: what it doesn't do, which I need, is convert old, "dry" 78 _mono_ tracks to rich simulated _stereo_. Audacity does this very nicely via the free VST "MDA Stereo" and "Compress Dynamics" plugins.

The first plugin does the mono-to-stereo conversion and the second:
* Does dynamic volume compression with lookahead
* Does 'compression ratio' by loudening the soft parts
* Modifies attack by dropping the volume to anticipate a loud section
* Modifies release by raising volume after a loud section, etc.
They work together beautifully, "right out of the box."

Also, if you already use Audacity, all the controls are absolutely different, and require a steep learning curve. I'd like it to work equal to or better than Audacity (since Audacity is freeware) and use freely available plugins.

very easy install on Win7x64

This program is wonderfully simple but will be able to do more complex editing. My primary use for a program like this is to create ringtones for my cell phones.

1.Open song 2.select portion 3. crop, 4. add fade, 5. save as... done and done. Could not get simpler.

I downloaded this in the past and tried it out on a brand new PC of mine and it worked great. The purchase of it was even on my list of things to do.
And being "WaveThemes" I have lots of uses for an audio editor. I've got to retire my 7 year-old PC with SoundForge on it and there's no way I can afford to buy that again on my income of today.
This one's not only a keeper but I bet I'll be buying another copy in the very near future for old PCs replacement.

Installed fine on XPPro SP3 and intuitive enough for people like me who suck at audio editing.

Meme: As for vinyl LP's - I finally broke down and grabbed an Ion USB turntable. Had some old, godawful albums I was playing with using Audacity, but no joy. The easiest noise removal software I found was SpinItAgain by Acoustica.

The program installed and registered without a problem, thanks to some of the comments above. There was a question or two about how to record from cassette tapes or LP albums. The Help Section addresses this and explains (with photos) how to connect a tape player or record player to your computer.

One problem: It doesn't mention in System Requirements (above or on the website) that a Speech Engine is required and NOT included in the program. This is addressed in the Help Section (an existing Speech engine is required on your computer) with a link to a website, however, the website link does not mention speech engines, *voices,* or how or where to get them. I DO have a Microsoft Speech Engine on my computer, with one voice -- neither of which are the same as the ones in #19's comments.

Updating System Requirements (i.e., "A Speech Engine is required for Text-to-Speech function"), links to where speech engines can be downloaded, and links to where other *voices* can be downloaded for those who have only one installed (preferably multiple voices for various languages) is needed. A few voices included on the website would be an added bonus.

Nice interface, not as problematic as some other applications in selecting waveform areas.

However, I feel that if you are going to charge for an audio editor these days, you really should properly support multi-channel and higher frequency/bitrate files (e.g. AC3, FLAC), or at least the pre-mastering WAV versions. (It didn't like a 5.1 192kbps 24-bit WAV, and crashed on a 192kbps 32-bit 2-ch WAV.)

A big no-no is the fact that installation dumps the NCT family of DLLs into Windows\System32. Come'on! Stop with the pollution of system directories!

For version 14.0.1, a lot of things still need work... Perhaps CyberPower thinks all updates deserve a major version number change...

As it is, this product is great for a freebie or donationware, but is not up to the point of a commercial audio editor. Keep at it.

Although it says it can be used for vinyl and cassette tape ripping, it doesn't appear to have automatic track splitting. There is the ability to manually split tracks.

Pretty much any audio editing software can be used for vinyl copying. What would really useful would be the ability to automatically split tracks and label them. However, the manual feature to split into two isn't bad. Even though you have to find the split points between songs, it separates them out so that you can save each as an individual file.

It is possible to split tracks with Audacity and other programs but this one handles the file in a slightly different way that makes it a little easier for record transfers. However, I would still prefer Audacity for recording and editing podcasts.

I have been testing this most of the morning and seems to be good and clean so far.Lots of options for you to edit sound files with.It will take a while to get used to this software but will be usefull.The only down fall I find is when you are editing the program gets VERY hungry for ram, VERY VERY HUNGRY! I use process lasso to keep track of how much system resources a program uses and although this is good software it uses on one file between 35% to 50%. A bit heavy for editing audio.Video I would expect that.
installed and registered easy. thanks Sam #3 for the tip.
Thanks to GOTD and Cyber Tech
This MAY be a keeper after further testing.

As the owner of a recording studio, I have a problem with the way this is marketed. It is not mastering software. Does not even have a tenth of the tools required for mastering (Just a hint, an FFT does not make it mastering software). How about any of the tools provided by Nuendo or Pro Tools, or SoundForge? Where is the plug-in support for VST? Do you want to work with vinyl at a professional level? Try Sony's Noise Reduction plug-in, or Diamond Cut's Audio Restoration Tools. None of these are free, but I have yet to walk in to any mastering studio and see a lot of free software being used. Sorry, but baseless claims for audio tools just don't sit well with me.

Otherwise, for basic audio editing, it seems adequate. The batch processing is a nice addition, and probably makes it worth adding to your suite if you are not already using one of the expensive products already mentioned.

Hey MeMe, I am looking at this for vinyl and cassette recordings myself. You will need an interface to attach your turntable/cassette player to the computer. I use a $12 interface called EasyCap that works great for my old VHS camera and works great. I believe it will work the same with my vinyl and this software. I picked up my easycap on ebay last year from china LOL has been working perfect since I got it. You can also spend more bucks and get another interface but you will definitely need some type. Hope this helps.
BTW I installed Audio Editing on my old dell laptop with xp sp3.

Thanks GAOTD, for a very nice giveaway. Download, install and registration is simple, quick and flawless. Registered using file menu option. Also registerd with own name with no problem. I played with this one for a few minutes on a music wav file I had previously recorded with effects and such. Worked great. Gave the type to speech a try and also worked perfect. This is defninitely a KEEPER for me. I also use audacity and other daw software and CyberPower Audio Editing definitely has a permanent place in my home studio software list. Thanks also to CyberPower for this giveaway!!!

I have a question: The description mentions Vinyl LPs. Is this one of the programs where you can get the music off of your LPs? I have tons of LPs and I would like to put them on DVDs so I not only have more space, but mostly to preserve them because so many are out of print and it's good music not available anywhere these days. Would anyone know about that and how I would use this program to put my Lps onto CDs? Thanks for any help! In case I don't post again before then, Merry Christmas to all, and Happy Chanukah to all our Jewish members here!

I searched for multitrack sound editor. I didn't find a free one except Audacity. As I see, this one is also not multitrack. There are several free alternatives:
WavePad from NHC software (you can use it for free with nag screens and limited functional.)
Twins Power Sound Editor Free and Free Audio Editor.
Creative WaveStudio if you have Sound Card from Creative.
Magic Music Editor - it is not free, but it is possible find promo...

Not bad but very limited, compared to the defunct CoolEdit pro or to Audacity. IMO, it lacks many input formats (AC3, for example), the possibility to select the audio output hardware (important when you have, like me, a second audio card) and many many processors (such as click and pops remover). It cannot display the wave in spectral view either (something really important if you want to do serious edits).

The CD ripper is also terribly weak. It cannot verify if the rip is accurate with AccurateRip (http://www.accuraterip.com/), so I will still need Exact Audio Copy or Foobar2000 (both free) to rip my CDs.

IMO, a good tool to record audio and save it in a common format, but certainly not to rip the CDs or process the recorded sound.

Would be nice if they could add support for external (third party) processors and audio format. (Implementing support for the flt and xfm files of CoolEdit would be really great!)

Installed and ran perfectly on Win7Pro x64. Actually, there are two entries for "Register Master Edition" - on the File menu and another on the Tools menu.

Comparing to Audacity and GoldWave, I like it a LOT! It won't be replacing anything, but it is a nice new tool for the toolkit. Very easy and intuitive to use. Special effects are interesting. Love the bookmark and regions feature. All of the basic editing tools are easy to find and behave as expected except for the envelope tool, which would be ever so much better if it was not in a popup, rather was indexed with the track(s) like it is on both Audacity and Goldwave. Voice recording and MP3 output is very clear (unlike the Audacity, which is awful for both of these things).

Odd but interesting: Reverse (look for backwards masking?), and Text to Speech (Serena and Daniel performed best for me).

BUGS? The program locked up on me when I had two files open at the same time (neither was terribly large); hopefully that won't repeat as I test further. The remove noise, expand -30 preset is broken and results in choppy audio.

I do professional voice-overs, and I recorded a vocal sample, and it recorded every bit as well as GoldWave. I am seriously considering buying this for that purpose because it is a LOT easier to use.

That said, I am seriously missing two features: adding tracks (seems to only support 2 tracks?) and zooming in and out on the waveform with the mouse scroll wheel.

Hmm,i've installed and tested. Still...i can't trim audio files in batch mode. The batch mode is only valid for effects such as echo. What i expected was that i would choose an album folder and then set the software that every file should be trimmed after 20 sec and Click. But this program has no difference from Audacity unfortunately. I've to do the manual job again. Besides, it crashed when i tried to add an effect to a song (3MB). My machine is 1 year old HP with V64, AMD 2.4Ghz and 4GB RAM. It also modified 200+registry entries. I dont like its CD ripper. In general, i'd choose Audacity as i can choose regions while i'm listening file and trim when necessary. Thanks anyway. Mike, please comment!

Thanks Randall, just couldn't find out how to register it. Never thought of looking there. Its not the usual place I have to admit.

Thanks again GAOTD
