Re: general digital recording query

Just a personal recommendation on this thread. I use my PC as a Digital
Audio Workstation, but don't need MIDI/Sequencing functionality, and use
Cool Edit Pro 1.2. I like the simplicity and the layout. Plus I like the
fact it doubles as a sound file or track editor and has multitrack window,
all within the click of an Icon. Also supports DX plugins which works for

Just my $0.02.
