    You’re spot-on about Audacity; I use a portable version, and it rivals or sometimes exceeds what commercial audio/NLE video editing sound can punch up for me! But you’re also right that it can be tough to get used to…you’ve got to dig up your own LAME library to use MP3 capabilities, and I could find only ONE download “in left field” where functioning ffmpeg library still existed (so one can import sound from video). There are also available some plugins for explosive sounds/further audio editing effects. Extensible IF one is familiar with the schema.
