    Hello,
    I've been using with very great satisfaction Syntrillium CoolEdit 2000 for a long time, but now that for other reasons I changed my hardware platform and adopted Windows-7 x64, this software is not compatible any more.
    Though I could run it with the "XP-Mode" virtualization, I'd prefer to direct myself to a newer software.
    My budget is extremely limited, since I perform Waveform editing by passion, for personal use (and for some of my friends), and not by profession.
    Currently I'm examining the following unes:
    - Reaper
    - Audacity
    - Traverso
    - LMMS (linux MultiMedia System - ported for windows)

    Can somebody provide some advices?

    Thanks in advance,

    regards

    I think it will be my choice too...

    Hi,
    after some tryout I'm getting more and more positively impressed by Reaper. I do think I'll stick on it.

    Regards

    Reaper kills. Never an issue, unlimited tracks, unlimited effects per track (up to what you PC can handle). My Windows XP PC, which is about 4 years old or so, can handle about 26-30 tracks in Reaper, with pretty heavy effects before it starts glitching out. Its a no brainer to me...Andy

    Reaper is fantastic but if you get it, go for Nuendo
    It rules.
