Q. Where can I find a good software program for editing sounds?
A. One of the best programs for editing sound files is a program called Adobe Audition (previously called CoolEdit or CoolEdit 2000). You can download a free feature-limited version of CoolEdit 2000 that provides everything you need to do basic sound editing by clicking here.

Two other programs that also work well for sound file editing, mixing and cropping are GoldWave and Audio Editor, which you can download trial versions now by clicking here.
