I would suggest you check out Obi from the DAISY Consortium


This audio editing tool has a lot of options, including what you are after.
It is the most powerful human narration audio editing tool out there;
super-efficient. It does a lot more than you are asking for, but you do not
need to use all the features. I would bet it speeds up your audio editing

It is free, open source, and the developer is blind. It runs on Windows
only. If you need some assistance, I can connect you to one of our trainers.

Subject: [Athen] Seeking recommendations for M4A converter

Now that we have so many webinars/courses in zoom, I'm seeking a simple
converter for Windows that will create .wav files from .M4A. The editor I
prefer to use likes wav files or Mp3, but if you convert to mp3 you reduce
the audio quality just a bit, so I'd prefer to convert to wav, edit it and
then convert to Mp3.

When I record lectures, my main tool for note-taking is to edit the
recording about 75% so I have only a short audio file to retain.

This is also useful when I'm working on a recording someone else made.
