I'm working on a project at work in which I'll need some sort of software that will allow me to take a wav file and chop it up, distort it, basically screw with it in every way possible. I'm talking about adding static, changing it from stereo to mono...things like that. This is for work and will be on the company's budget, so price is not an issue. I'm looking for whatever is easiest and most intuitive. A friend recommended Abelton Live or soundforge, any opinions on these products?
