simple yet intuitive. Just right

2.0 is out, replaces long standing beta version

Audacity is a great tool. I recommend it to anyone just starting out, and I still use it for certain editing functions.

I just converted a mp3 to a ogg. Just had to open and save as ogg. Hurray for open source.

Correct download link for v 1.3.7 ub:

http://surfnet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/audacity/audacity-macosx-ub-1.3.7.dmg

Free and very advanced controls. I use this to edit MP3s I download off FrostWire or through torrents to make ringtones or trim...

it works. I use it. It's free. I therefore love it.
I will eventually look into other software, but I've still got miles to go before I'm even an amateur.

This application is OK at best. It is good for minor trimming here and there, but I would not recommend it for any serious recording.

it may not be pretty but very functional. Has replaced commercial software (e.g. Logic) in my workflow. With some tweaking of shortcuts it does EVERYTHING I need.
I reccommend it highly.

I don't see where macdude is coming from... Export to .wav or .mp3 is easy as anything, and found right in the File menu where you'd expect it to be...
