Hey guys,

Liz Moorehead and I record Content Lab each week. I use Audacity to produce it, but I find it to be glitchy at times. 

What is anyone else using? (preferably something that's free)

I use Adobe Audition because I have a Creative Cloud subscription :D

I've always been pretty low-tech with these things and have used Audacity before. However, I remember awhile back reading into some alternative software solutions that I listed below:

Alitu - Seems like the hands off, super easy to use version but may cost a bit month to month.

Hindenburg Journalist - I hear a lot about this one because it requires a bit more work to learn audio editing but is a good investment cost for a pretty advanced tool.

If I think of more, I'll be sure to rally back with some more answers!

I use Davinci Resolve to do all of my editing for my podcast and everything else now. It is amazing and free. Watch this short YouTube video and you will know everything you need to know about the program. youtu.be

I've been using Audacity for years for audio production and just recently started using DaVinci Resolve for video. Good point by  Kayleigh Mihalko  that I could maybe just use DaVinci for both.

Been using Audactiy in some capacity for about a decade so there's some comfort in the familiarity there.

I never have, or ever will, use a free piece of software for editing. Call me picky but usually free doesn't come with the tools you really need. My go-to has always been Adobe Audition. Before it was audition, it was called Cool Edit Pro from Syntrillium Software. Even then, the bootleg copies of that program would do you no good without a working key. Haha. Let's be honest, if you're serious about your craft, you will invest in the tools you need to get the job done correctly. Unfortunately, it's very rare these tools are free. If they are, they usually end up monetizing them after they become popular and you will end up paying anyways.
