    I've tried it, but I think Steinberg's Wavelab is still the no.1 pro audio editor. Emagic's Samplitude is very good too. Both are much better than SF IMO.
     
  3. I've never used the programs JMX mentions, but personally I really like Sound Forge. Apparently there's a new version coming out soon which will include a multitrack mixer page as well.

    JMX,
    WHY do you like Wavelab better than SoundForge? The interface? Quality?

    I don't use either, I'm just curious.

    Hard to say, the overall feel and workflow is much better, Wavelab is more powerful too.

    Oh, and Wavelab can use VST effects and ASIO.

    Wavelab uses VST?? I didn't know that.

    You say more powerful...are you talking about quality of recording or just the amount of 'stuff' the program can acomplish?

    Personally, I've been using Sonar since it debuted and have had no problems. But someone had mention Wavelab before and it got me interested.

    Thanks.

    I doubt you'd hear differences in sound, the soundcard is more important for that.

    Wavelab is more powerful than Soundforge IME.
    But it's an audio editor, not a sequencer.

    If you want to check out alternatives to Sonar, check out Cubase SX, Nuendo and Logic.

    Logic 5.2 will be available as a free download when the PC support ends, late august or september.

    Sonar is cool from what I've heard, but I need VST FX and VSTis, so Sonar is out for me.
