Audio Edit like it's Photoshop ^_^

Hi everyone,

Here's another heads-up for an audio editing tool that's free and might be of some use for folks here.

"LAoE means Layer-based Audio Editor, and it is a rich featured graphical audiosample-editor, based on multi-layers, floating-point samples, volume-masks, variable selection-intensity, and many plugins suitable to manipulate sound, such as filtering, retouching, resampling, graphical spectrogram editing by brushes and rectangles, sample-curve editing by freehand-pen and spline and other interpolation curves, effects like reverb, echo, compress, expand, pitch-shift, time-stretch, and much more... And it is free of charge!"

    Whoops, forgot to mention that it's quite a geeky tool and takes some effort to get running...

    For instance:

    The installation of LAoE is simple:
    - if not available, install the java runtime environment jre 1.5 or higher
    - extract the file laoe_x_y_zz.tar.gz into a desired location
    - linux/mac: make laoe script executable, then run ./laoe to launch LAoE
    - windows: run the batch laoe.bat to launch LAoE
    - if the given user starts LAoE for the first time, a .laoe directory is automatically
    created in the user home directory
    - LAoE icons available: iconXX.png
    - read the "tip of the day" to learn how to use LAoE
