Looking for a wav sequencer...


Hey all. I've been doing some sequencing with Tunafish lately. For the registration of only $30 it's pretty good, but I've run into a pretty huge limitation - there are only TWO available time signatures, 4/4 and 3/4. That's far from ideal, so I'm looking around for something else.
Here's what it absolutely must have. Anything more is a bonus:
1) Must be able to use WAV files in drum sequencing, since my drums are all individual hits in WAV format (see tunafish for an example of a sequencer that does this simply brilliantly).
2) Must be able to use VSTi instruments and effects (tunafish does this brilliantly as well).
3) Ideally will have a mixer GUI with sliders for each track.
4) Must have more than two time signatures. :D
I don't need to use any external midi devices, and I don't need to use the mic input to record vocals or anything. No programs or devices need to be synced.
Does anyone know of anything like that? Free is best, but I don't mind paying if it's reasonably priced.

Cheap and free to try until you get guilty enough to pay for it (and it's worth it.)
You can also go out to Barnes&Noble and pick up a ComputerMusic magazine.
They put a DVD in every month with a full free music production suite plus tons of goodies...

I use Reaper for recording my guitar tracks, but it just falls down as a sequncer when you're working with one shot wav files. It just wasn't made for that at all. :(

Not if you use a sampler plugin for triggering one-shots.
Shortcircuit will do that in Reaper and its FREEEEEEEE.
