    Hmm, well, off the top of my head all I can think of is Quicktime Pro...not free. (usually)

    You could Sound Studio that (might have) came with your computer.

    I think if you get an eMac, iBook, or iMac you get it free; don't know about the PowerBook or PowerMac though.

    Avoid that program at all costs. It needs serious stability re-enforcements.

    Like some of the above posters, I recommend Sound Studio as well. Even though the latest version is a beta, it's still fairly stable (wayy more than Audacity) and even better than the 2.1 release. Oh, and if Sound Studio does crash on you, it somehow saves all your already open files to your Hard Drive. So if it crashes, upon relaunch, Sound Studio will give you a "recovery" pop-up window that tells you that the program restored your open files right to your Hard Drive. Take that (again), Audacity! Also you can use Sound Studio for recording incoming audio as well. Take about 5 minutes to get used to how recording works, as well as the input levels, and about 20 to 30 minutes getting used to the settings and editing user interface.

    another good utility is Cacophony i find. it saves all formats and all that stuff. it is shareware though, which means you'll have to wait 5 seconds when it starts up to use it. besides that, its a good program. ( cant remember the site - google :D )

    If you are just splitting up an audio file and it's an mp3 you can use .cue files and these programs.

    Cue-Maker
    Cue-Splitter

    It takes a few minutes to learn how to use them, but they are pretty straight forward. One thing to remember is that when you are splitting, I think the .cue file has to be in the same folder as the mp3 fothe cue-splitter to work. Anyways, good luck.

    I'm going to throw in my vote for Audacity, listed & linked above. It does crash occasionally on me, but overall I've been happy with it. It is a good basic audio editor, and it's free!
