Improve editing functions

Post by sync45 » Tue Jul 10, 2018 2:22 pm

Audacity 2.2.2 is a fabulous program and is full of all kinds of processing effects that are usually found only in paid software. It's a great post-production tool. However, when it comes to editing functionality, Audacity leaves something to be desired. I do a lot of spoken word editing, which often requires extremely tight cuts, sometimes even between syllables. I miss a simple, clear Marker function (I find Labels awkward to use). I also find the keyboard editing functionality awkward.

As you might have guessed, I've been using Sound Forge 7 for years, mainly because of its editing functionality. If Audacity could or would adopt similar editing features, especially similar keyboard functionality, it would be a clear winner. As it is now, I do my editing on SF, but post-production processing on Audacity. I wish I could do it all on Audacity.

You can zoom-in on the waveform down to individual samples ...
