6 best audio editing software for podcasts

Reaper Podcast Editor

Reaper is a multi-channel audio recording software that can be used for recording and mixing purposes. For the features on offer, Reaper is reasonably priced at $60 for individuals.

The user interface of Reaper is not the most intuitive as it starts with a blank canvas and leaves the user guessing where to start. However, the software is fast and highly efficient when it comes to the editing and mixing of tracks.

Reaper offers all the basic audio editing features like copy, paste, insert, and effects. However, it does miss out on built-in virtual instruments and loops.

The latest version of the Reaper comes with new features that include Notation editor, support for VST3 plugin, FX browser improvements, FX parameter automation, and media explorer improvement, etc.

Reaper is a highly flexible software that offers some of the best tools for audio editing at a fraction of the cost when compared to another premium DAW software. Make sure to grab the free evaluation copy before making the purchase.
