I'm using Emagic's Logic Audio on the Mac.  I love the program although
I've only scratched the surface of what it can do.  It has the ability to
map the tempo of a song to an audio file and "quantize" an audio file to a
MIDI sequence.  The newer version has real-time DSP capabilities.

Initially I was a little scared of non-linear recording but I'm now a BIG
fan.  In fact, I borrowed a friend's ADAT about 7 months ago to do a
project and I actually prefer recording right into the computer.


P.S.  2+ years ago a big factor in convincing me to buy Logic Audio was the
linear notes in Torn's "Tripping Over God" CD.  I figured if DT was using
it, it had to be pretty cool.
