A nice little noise generator.
I used to use this just for recording my vocals, as well as converting my .wav files to MP3. Recently, I learned about importing raw data, and I've been able to make some great glitch sounds, and even some sounds for noise music. Try it sometime if you're into those kind of sounds.
Very simple and powerful
I know this is primarily a music website, but I feel the need to point out this software. I used to use it for recording my vocals, and then I would export them into Fruity Loops. However, now my vocals are recorded in Fruity Loops itself. However, I still find use in Audacity, just not for my music. I often use it for recording my lines when I do my voice acting, and adding various effects before I export it into Cool Edit Pro for editing. So, yes, this is very good for audio editing and recording, but not really that much else.
For quick audio sampling and sample stretching, this little piece of freeware cannot be beat, you can easily add new plugins and it's factory defaults are pretty comprehensive. People who have used more comprehensive (read: expensive) software suites will think that it's cheap and useless, but this isn't directed toward professionals.
