I couldn't resist the bad pun. Audacity is free as in freedom cross-platform extremely user-friendly audio editing software:
and I unapologetically suck as a musician, but miss the social aspect of jamming with other less-than-professional musicians and don't see why this software woudn't work to transcend time and distance sorta kinda good enough with the right community.
Figured it wouldn't hurt to ask. Just ignore me if I'm being weird again.
