trying to get things done. I used to use (and still do actually) the longtime discontinued uh... SoundEdit II. Anhyhow, just been looking around a found a few of the new players out there.

SparkME. This sounds cool, but is it any good??

Amadeus II. This one is getting some love from the masses and OSX.

Coasteris not OSX supported, but has been shown love anyhow.

And what is the deal with Sound Studio?? Any good?? I'm trying to pack as much as I can in this baby. I would love to have MP3 encoding, but that's not entirely necessary. Anyhow, looking for comments. Thanks a mil... ;)

For basic audi recording in OS X I have found that sound studio is a great app but it lack alot of editing power, reminds me alot of SoundEdit16 from macromedia though!

If you require high end editing and recording, I would recommend something like Peak, Spark, Logic, CueBase, or Pro Tools

not looking for super high end. But I do need something that will do a decent job. SoundEdit was not awesome, just decent enough to make it happen for what I needed to do. I plan to do tons of recording in the new year....

If SoundEdit worked for you, try out sound studio, very similer!

Yeah, Sound Studio will do you for very basic cuts and splices and recording. It's a no-frills package...and you can install the working demo of it from most MacAddict or MacWorld CD's. You can also download it from the Audio folder when you get a trial .Mac account.

As for the previously mentioned Peak from Bias, that is more aimed at audio fr use in video productions. They have a fantastic multi-track editor called Deck...and have a toned-down (and cheaper version of that) called Deck 3.5 LE. It is worth a look.

Let us know what you decide.

Hey,

Deck 3.5 LE is available for download from .Mac if you care to go and get a trial message. It's in Software/Mac OS X Software/Applications/Audio & video (in case you wanted to take it for a test drive).

Digital Performer from MOTU is a very flexible program, allowing one to use various hardware configurations that don't necessarily come from MOTU. It's a complex editing program though, and there's a considerable amount of time in learning how to use it.
