Just want to give a shout-out to Audacity, which as far as I'm concerned is the open source creative tool that actually achieves the promise of open source creative tools. It gets significantly better every release and releases every few months, and the UI gets better and better (the key thing most open source tools don't achieve). If you tried Audacity a few years ago or more and decided it was unstable or clunky to use, download the latest version. You might be pleasantly surprised.

My main Audacity tip is to learn to use the multi-tool. It is a mode of interaction where you can hold down keyboard buttons to toggle what the mouse/trackpad does. Learning it took a few minutes, getting comfortable with it took a few hours, and it increased my working speed roughly 2X.
