    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,

    I think it will be my choice too...

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

    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.
