Hi.

Anyone here into digital music prouction? I currently use fruityloops and some other progs fairly extensively, but I am also looking at more specific digital editing software. I have used sound forge quite a lot and love it, but I can't afford to buy myself a copy. Looking at the alternatives, anyone have any recommendations as to what might be best. I'm trialling a few at the moment and I think that Cool Eit 2000 might be the best bet. The pro version is pretty high price, but it look like I could use plugins to soup it up a bit. Others like soundedit pro (crashes all the time) and goldwave have similar features, but I'm finding it hard to decide which one is the best.

Can anyone help me with their experiences of any of the above or alternatives?

Probably a bit hopeful considering it's not exactly webmasterworld's speciality, but I have theory that with WW and Google you can find out anything :)

Hola!

I use Sound Forge and SAW plus. A perfect combination.

If you haven't tested SAW plus, grab a copy from somewhere and have a go.

Is is not a WAV editor but tracker, with 16-24 tracks depending on the version. Sticky me if you need more information.

Regards.

I use sound forge (a fairly old version), and have tried most of the others you mentioned (Goldwave, Cool Edit) and found them a bit lacking. They're ok for very basic editing, but sound forge has a lot more.

Saturday I downloaded a 21 day trial copy of Cool Edit Pro. I like it so far, but it might be overkill for what I do. Maybe Cool Edit 2000 would be sufficient - it would be much cheaper.

I was very impressed with Cool Edit 2000 - I don't know about the quality of the FX processing etc. but I find it very intuitive to use - love the zero point snapping selection feature - saved me a lot of time already!

I would probably agree that Sound Forge is the best, but I just really can't afford $350 so I'm hoping for a good alternative.

Take a look at:

Audacity [audacity.sourceforge.net]

Hi Brent.

I actually downloaded audacity a few days ago, and in all honesty I wasn't very impressed. Open source is great, but the program lacks many features that I would consider crucial. It's one to watch for the future, but in it's current form it's too basic for me.

No problem - frankly, I use: Sound Forge, Wavelab, and Cool Edit Pro - each has certain strengths - I find myself "defaulting" to Sound Forge usually...

Brent
