To edit a sound you'll have to get one first. Either you record it yourself or outsource it from somewhere else. In this tutorial I'm going to teach you how to record and edit a sound yourself. Enjoy it.

Introduction To Sound Editors.

First of all, you'll need to set up your Computer for desktop audio recording. Read more about desktop audio recording set up here. After you've done with setting up.

You'll need to Install a sound editor like, Sound Forge, Audacity or any other choice of yours. Anyway, I'm going to use the two mentioned editors. So if you want to follow up, you can download and install any one or both.
Audacity is free to download. Now, If your preferred, learning Audacity outright you can start from here. However, before you start, Click here to download and install also the LMAE mp3 encoder for Audacity.

Configuration | Setting Up Sound Forge 10.0

Sound Forge is chargeable, but you can download a trial version for this tutorial.

After Sound Forge Installed on your computer, double click its Icon on your desktop to start it.

In the menu bar choose File » New. You'll see a dialog box which will display the GIF image (New Window) below. Take a keen look at it before continuing to read how to set that up.

Sample Rate.

The sample rate 44.100 Hz will give you a CD quality sound. However, because of the optimization we need to apply for the fast downl loading of our website. We'll always try to find the minimum data rate, that also quality for the web.

For this reason, we'll first of all use 32.000 Hz for the sounds we are going to create for our website.


The 16 bit-depth is a standard bit-depth rate for sample rates 44.100 Hz and below, so you'll leave it as is and continue.


The channel choosing is depending on what you want to record. Mostly, for high quality music sounds [CD Quality], you'll use the 2 (stereo) which will give you two mono channels left and right making a stereo sound.

There are other options too, but since we want to record voices, mp3 music, and some natural sounds to be used for our website, we'll stick to the 1 (Mono) which will give us one Mono channel, quite enough for our tasks.

That's alright. Now hit the OK button to accept settings and configuration will be done.

Project File Saving Methods And File Format.

Before you'll start to edit your sound, please save it first to avoid losing it for any reason.

To save your file you'll choose File » Save as, and then any name without space .wav for example, [mysounnd.wav]

For safety reasons, always save a backup file, it will save you from losing your work for any reason.

Save it once again using the same procedure as .MP3. You can then edit the file as you want and save it repeatedly until you're satisfied.

A Non Destructive Program.

Luckily, Sound Forge is a non destructive software so you can experiment as you like. However, don't overwrite your files with the same name and ending, else it will be destructive.

Man will give you worldly powers, and make you feel on top of all, note this is temporally and could be redrawn at anytime sending you back to the ground floor of life. However, the Lord Almighty, the one and the only rightful ruler of the Universe, blesses everlastingly.


Knowledge is Power, but Power is not Knowledge. Wisdom is the truthful Power that identifies the Knowledge within the man. And only, I repeat 3x. Only the almighty God has the power to bless the man with his Wisdom forever.

To achieve the Lord's blessings, cease not praying daily, asking for his Wisdom, and you'll be blessed abundantly...
