I agree with this. If you need more of a DAW then Reaper is more useful than Audacity. You'll find features you might like such as the ability to quantize audio to a different BPM. But if you're doing more of editing audio files, then Audacity works fine. It just depends on what you're doing with it. Since Adobe Audition started life (way waaaayy back) as Cool Edit, you may be doing more of the latter and you will find everything you need in Audacity in that case.Saides, you might also look at Reaper. While Audacity is free and good for quick and dirty edits, Reaper is much more capable as a full fledged DAW. It's a 1 time purchase of $60, and that covers 2 full versions. Currently at 6.77, you would be covered through 7.9999 which is probably about 3-4yrs away. V6 started in 2019. Plus it will continue to work even after V8.0 hits, I'm still running 5.99 happily on a Win10 4th Gen Core I5 system with no problems.
Also, there is excellent tutorial support on Youtube with Reaper Mania.
It's free to try for 60 days, and will continue to operate with just a nag screen upon startup after that point.
Each DAW has a particular target niche e.g. doing EDM and all music is composed in the box? Maybe FL Studio. Need to perform live with your tracks? Maybe Ableton. etc. etc.
