RE: Sound Forge and VEGAS!

SAW may have grown up a little since you last used it.  The SAWStudio edition has a very proffessional feel and I think all versions now take both VST and directx plugins as well as the the proprietary SAW plugins.  N e way, I don't want to start a multitracker flame thread - not really the place for it.  I'll just to say look around and find what you are comfortable with using.

SAW is OK, it's what I used in College, during my College Radio days. It's the first thing they give you to work with, when it comes to Multitrack for PC's, and the interface was designed for Win95 users in mind..(the feel is so Win 3.1 !)

It's not too flexible, but it is stable as heck ! (I editted the real thought). But it's hard to find, and the plugin's are even harder... stick with Sound Forge, or Vegas, or even Cool Edit Pro 1.2a(not 2000).

I haven't used vegas, but I do know that if you are after a purely audio
multitracker the SAW range comes highly recommended by its fiercely devoted
user group. It doesn't get much mainstream press as the company (IQS) has a
slightly anti-industry tilt. Go check out http://www.pcrecording.com/, they
have a bunch of reviews of hardware and software that is usefull.

I recommend Sound Forge also. I visited their website today (thanks for the
heads-up, Hans), and ordered the upgrade that is available on their site as
Like biz, I was excited about the 24/96 support - very useful. But I was
also excited about Vegas (the lite version ships with Sound Forge). This
seems to be a good multitrack program. I'm tempted to upgrade to the full
version after I get the LE serial number with Sound Forge.
But let me ask because I don't know much about this kind of software... do
you any of you use Vegas? Like it? Hate it? Is there anything better out
there? I'm looking for a very capable full-featured program, and I'm on a PC
(although I have an iMac too if that's the platform of choice for music work
and the iMac has enough juice to run those apps).
What say all you good folks?
