I've used several multi-tracking progs and I keep coming back to Audition.  I find it the most intuitive and easy to use.  I do like Vegas too though.  I have had a few crashes though.  Usually when I'm stopping & starting fast.  Saving often is a good idea with any program though.  Also, it does seem to recover with everything last done in the event it does crash.

Oh, and I had NO idea it was a PC only program up until now. Crazy! I thought everything Adobe did was primarily made for MAC.  Tells you what I know.

This was an exception because Adobe bought up an existing Windows app (what was it... Samplitude?) so they'd have a audio-focused app to bundle with their video-focused stuff like After Effects and Premiere.

Anyway, by now, Adobe sells more Windows software than Mac software.

I did not know that.  Wild and whacky stuff!

It was Cool Edit, btw, not Samplitude. I knew it was one of those junky shareware audio editors I used to use before I ponied up for Sound Forge.

Oh yeah.  Duh.  I had been using Cool Edit too.  I'm getting old. Memory not so good.

Isn't it funny, you can create a shareware app with a ridiculous name like "Cool Edit" and end up selling it to Adobe for millions of dollars?

Junky? I guess you are half-joking...
I think Cool Edit was popular because it was a very good software.
No wonder Adobe has bought it and polished it to sell for bug bucks.
As I said before AA offers excellent tools, easy to use.

Yeah, I'm being a smart-ass. Cool Edit was OK software, but I don't know how far back you used it. The earliest versions were really rough.

Samplitude was worse. It functioned OK but might have had the most cluttered interface in software history.

It's easy to make fun of Cool Edit because, well... it's called Cool Edit.  Putting the word "Pro" at the end didn't really make it less silly.

I've used the last versions.
Well, maybe I'm not that sensitive to names, just care what they do.
"Apple"? "Windows"? "Office"? "Opera"?
Pretty funny for me, too.
AA is pretty much based on Cool Edit, extra tools added.
Some people say that they made it worse, too junky. Oh, wait... ;)

Audition is very similar to Cool Edit Pro, though it seems less crash prone when importing 24-bit files, and works very well  as an editor in tandem with a nimble multitrack program like Reaper.

I'm trying out the Audition OSX beta today, creating the second Hypnos podcast (which is a feature on the new Herion CD "Out and About" for those interested).  So far I like it pretty well. It's a little more intuitive than Soundtrack Pro, which is what I usually use for this sort of thing. Definitely nicer looking.
