Free and easy to use, Power Sound Editor is a great application for newcomers to learn how to mix, edit and otherwise customize their favorite music and sounds.

What Power Sound Editor brings to the audio editing arena is that it offers users a somewhat complex program that allows for more in depth audio editing while at the same time being intuitive and easy to navigate. The design is familiar and each type of audio edit is broken down in a horizontal menu across the top of the program. Under each tab is a list of changes that can be made to the track in question. Like most audio editors, you can change how you view the sound waves as well as cut and paste different sections together. Unlike the most barebones programs, though, you are allowed a lot of depth in terms of what you can do. Frequency analysis, resampling, noise reduction and amplification are only part of this program’s possibilities. While the more professional programs can certainly do this and more, they are often loaded with terms that a beginner doesn’t understand. With Power Sound Editor, you have access to just enough to teach you up to an intermediate level of sound editing.

One of the more enjoyable features are the program’s built-in sound effects. Where most sound editors deal with just the sounds you provide, Power Sound Editor offers you a list of extra things you can drop into your mix with the click of a button. Even so, it should be noted that this is not a program designed for professional sound editors. While solid for beginners, advanced users will not find the versatility they need.
