    In your opinion, what is the best audio editing program to use? Just trying to get ideas on what to buy...

    I personally heard Cool Edit Pro was good, but haven't really looked into it... but any other suggestions?

    CEP is now Adobe Audition - but it's probably the very best 'bang for the buck' on the market at the moment.

    Get Adobe Audition (Cool Edit). It is all I use for resampling and restoration. I have heard it is good for recording too.

    I use a simple program called soundforge. Its pretty straight forward for recording and editing sounds.

    I have used Soundforge 6 and Adobe Audition. Soundforge is more straightforward as where Audition has more in-depth features. I don't remcommend Audition for multitrack, though. Use something else like Sonar for that.

    I've been using Cakewalk Pro Audio 9.03 for some time and have found it to be a robust program for recording and editing both audio and MIDI. A little bit of a learning curve at first though. I have had experience with Protools LE and MIX and have found the interface to be lacking. I edit on the waveform level alot and found Protools to be difficult in that respect. I am about to upgrade to Sonar 3 as I have seen and heard great things about it. The author, Scott Garrigus has written very comprehensive books on both programs.

    If your looking for a small program to edit simple audio Goldwave is really good. For something bigger like mixing tracks I suggest SonicFoundry Acid Pro or a more simpler audio editor like SoundForge is pretty good as well.

    Personally I use Cakewalk Pro 9, for audio it's pretty straight forward and really easy for multi-track. I've also tried CubaseVST Great program lots of features and especially great sound but a little harder to get used to. I should take more time to really learn how to use it, a lot of people I know swear by it...

    I suppose that's alright for a 'quick fix' - but it's hardly what I would call an editor. It certainly isn't in the same class as CEP, SF, AA or anything of that calibre.

    Anything that supports DXi is good in my book.

    Which, currently let's out CEP/AA - a good DX host, but no DXi at the moment.

    On the other hand, the question was about an audio editor and for this purpose, it's still the best bang for the buck around. In fact, for straightforward editing, just find a copy of CoolEdit 2000 (no longer sold) and use that - it has all the features needed.

    Peak for Mac works well...

    I use Peak 4 for the Mac for my audio editing. Works well enough for my needs...
