Scalpel is an audio editor for Linux. It aims to provide a simple-to-use and easy-to-extend audio editor. Scalpel still has some rough edges but is quite usable. Scalpel uses PyGTK for the user interface, Numpy for the internal processing, ALSA for the audio playing, and libsndfile for reading and writing files. A minimal part of the code is written in Cython for better performance.
