There are a number of options available depending on your needs, ranging in price from free to thousands of dollars. Audio editing software offers basic editing capabilities (recording, cutting, shifting, deleting, pasting audio) and may offer the ability to apply audio effects to your audio. Digital Audio Workstation software is generally more powerful and complex, usually including the ability to record multiple tracks of audio at once, and to edit and mix many tracks of audio together and to apply effects in various ways to your tracks.
