GLAME

GLAME (GNU/Linux Audio Mechanics) is meant to be the GIMP of audio processing. It is designed to be a powerful, fast, stable, and easily extensible sound editor for Linux and compatible systems. It has full support for non-destructive editing including undo/redo and applying LADSPA effects. Its supported platforms are Linux, BSD, IRIX, and OS X. It uses guile and libxml, and the GNOME libs available is highly recommended. MP3 and Ogg files can be processed if libmad and libvorbisfile are installed.

            Still in development but does show some promise.
            This is one of the few new sound editors that compiles successfully on my Debian system without requiring a bunch of new-fangled libraries and toolkits that haven't made their way into a stable distro yet. Clearly the program is still in development, but shows some promise.

            It is intended to be the "GIMP" of sound editing. That can be both a good thing and a bad thing. GIMP, indeed, has a lot of functionality, but also is not very intituitive for the beginning user. I am afraid GLAME may go the same route. I notice I had to open up a "new project" and import sounds just to edit them. I would have preferred at least having the additional option of a straightforward loading and editing of a single sound file. Also, I did not see an indicator that showed one's position on a sound file during playback. As for selecting a portion of a sound file to edit, a click-and-swipe highlight approach would have been nice, but seemed to be missing.

            What do you mean exactly by the dependency list? There is one in the tarball, but of course I could list dependencies in the freshmeat visible description. Btw, "must have" dependencies are guile(-dev) and libxml(-dev), an "if you are going to use this" dependency is on the gnome-libs. For audio in/out support you need either oss, esd or alsa-0.5(!)

            GUILE dependency not mentioned anywhere in the description
            This project appears to depend on GUILE, and this
            is not mentioned anywhere in the project
            description. Those people who do not have GUILE
            don't have to waste their time downloading this
            project just to find out they cannot use it.
            Please consider changing the description to
            reflect the dependency list.
