Killer Audio Editor !!!!
I have been using Sound Forge since version 4.5. I will say that this audio editor can be used as consumer, connoisseur or professionally!
Add the new Izotope plug ins or your favorite third party plugs and you've got a very, very serious editor that if use correctly can bring in some KASH:) Give ii a try it's a very stable program that doesn't crash often when it's set up right! and it's not as expensive as others are :) :)
By the way the sound is as good as Samplitude Pro X which I also use.
