Tom’s Definitive Linux Software Summary: Audio Apps



Today we take a look at consumer audio applications. This includes apps for organizing and listening to music, CDs, podcasts, internet radio streams, and other audio sources. In addition, applications for burning CDs, labeling, repairing and converting digital audio files, as well as some lightweight recording and editing packages. This is the fifth article in Tom’s Hardware Definitive Linux Software Roundup, and the seventh part of our continuing guide to getting started with Linux for Microsoft Windows users.

Originally, we intended to create a single article on Linux-based audio applications. However, it soon became clear that the large number of audio production applications would not allow this. In order not to bore casual users with the audio production jabber, this article is split into two: content consumption and content creation. Most end users will be more interested in this article, while musicians and audio professionals should look to the next one for their Linux audio needs.

Content consuming applications such as media managers and audio players are listed here. These include replacements for iTunes, WinAmp, FreeRIP, Audio Grabber, MP3 Cutter, Windows Sound Recorder, and others. Our next episode is dedicated to content creation. Audio production applications will be rounded off, starting with full digital audio workstations (DAWs) and audio editors, then moving to more focused applications such as sequencers, synthesizers, effects pedals, and audio editors. other tools that help with audio creation.

So, without further ado, let’s check out some of the best audio consumption apps available for Linux!
