The Simplest Audio Editing Application - Ocenaudio

Sound editing is one of the most crucial parts of any form of media production, be it movies, commercials, podcasts or music. Quicker and simpler sound-editing applications have replaced the multi-featured complicated ones over the years, thus making it less intimidating for rookies. Ocenaudio is not just one among these new quicker or simpler applications. It is in fact an industry standard that is often hailed as the quickest and simplest sound-editing tool.

Ocenaudio is a cross-platform audio editor which is loaded with multiple format-support, spectral analysis and audio signal generation. It resolves noise, echo and interference issues from audio files. Ocenaudio is equally stable in all the mainstream operating systems that it is compatible with, viz. Windows, Mac and Linux. Once you get the hang of Ocenaudio, it is so quick to work on as it offers cohesive and intuitive audio editing and analysis features.

Ocenaudio was designed and developed by a Brazilian research group at the Federal University of Santa Catarina. This application relies on Ocean Framework, a strong library developed to simplify and standardize the event of audio manipulation and analysis across multiple platforms.

The user-friendly and simple interface makes the learning curve easier for newbies. Though Ocenaudio is not equipped with the comprehensive features of a DAW, its sound editing functionality is as good or even better than many of the mainstream sound editing applications. Some sound editors consider Ocenaudio superior to the more popular free alternative, Audacity.

Thus it is important to save desired versions of your audio separately on your hard-drive. Thus, these files are protected from the changes made on further edits in your Ocenaudio session. It is not a great multi-track editing tool for complicated audio. However, it is one of the go-to tools for simple stereo and mono track edits.

Video files in the mp4 format too are supported by the application. However it is highly recommended that you avoid high-resolution files or large size as they tend to make Ocenaudio crash. Hence Loopazon recommends Ocenaudio only for performing edits small files.


Ocenaudio is a totally uncomplicated application to perform small edits to your stereo and mono files. Some features in Ocenaudio are often hailed superior to Audacity, by sound editors. The interface in simple and concise, enabling rookies to quickly get familiar with the operations and functionalities of the application. There is no limit to the file size, audio length or the amount of files in Ocenaudio. However, as recommended in this article, you should choose wisely when to use this application. Working with too many files, especially large ones tends to cripple the application, thus making it crash. There are better free alternatives for editing sound with large file-sizes. According to us at Loopazon, Audacity holds the edge while working with large files. The stability and performance of Audacity is far superior to Ocenaudio, despite some superior features in the latter.
