poll, the best audio editor turned out to be Audacity, the free and cross platform audio editor that is well known for its capabilities and its price.
2nd place was a tie between Sony Sound Forge and Nero Wave Editor. Sound Forge is an expensive professional editing tool and has been around for a long time generating a large user base.
Nero Wave Editor is bundled with Ahead's Nero Ultra package. It is inexpensive and relatively powerful, appealing to the consumer who is interested in editing sound, but not enough to spend hundreds of dollars on a professional program.
3rd place went to Adobe Audition, another professional editing application that used to be called Cool Edit Pro until it was bought by Adobe. It was also the most common response in the "Other" category.
Other contenders in the poll were:
• MP3 Surgeon
• Wave Lab
• Samplitude Pro
• Roxio Sound Editor
