Audacity allows you to select and apply a noise profile and just as easily remove it. According to the web site, Audacity will also, “record live audio, convert tapes and records into digital recordings or CDs, edit Ogg Vorbis, MP3, and WAV sound files, cut, copy, splice, and mix sounds together and change the speed or pitch of a recording.” Audacity supports plugins for LADSPA, Nyquist and VST, and there’s also support for real-time monitoring, though it’s not enabled by default.
FileZilla is a very credible alternative to WS_FTP and has most of the features; it’s lightweight in comparison but in my book that is often better. It uses a simple layout based on a two-pane interface that looks a bit like the early versions of WS_FTP. But this simplicity is deceptive, it is actually quite a powerful product. There’s a full-featured site manager, firewall and proxy support, SFTP, SSL and Kerberos GSS security, restart, drag ‘n drop and a lot more.
