Yea, Sound Forge is the Shiznit ! I found that the Vegas Lyte was TOO lite for my needs, so I Opted to get The Vegas Audio 2.0. I do a lot of remixing, and editing so I needed a STRONGER Multitrack application than what was given.
I just love Sound Forge for it's OLE drage and drop capabilities. For example, I was doing a remix, and I had a sample that I wanted drop into the mix, but with a 3 hdd's and over 8 gigs of MP3's, wav samples, I could not find that sample for the life of me. I did a search using WinMe file search, I located the errant file, and dragged it from my search results, right into the Sound Forge work area ! It was like magic ! I used to use Cool Edit Pro 1.2a, but the interface was too clunky, and unless you KNOW where all your files are at, you can't drag and drop things in. Oh, another thing, with Vegas, you can mix MP3's with .wav's, with little difficulties (I found that Vegas will shut down, if the bit rates are really flakey between MP3 and wav file... there might be a patch for that in the works though).
