It is one of the most popular free recording software that I came across. There is a wide range of recording and editing options available.

Ardour is the software that has been designed for all platforms. I liked this software because of the multi-tracking facility. I was able to import the videos from different online and offline platform and was able to merge their sound tracks into your music. I was able to pair the individual tracks for the recording and there were no issues in the software.
