    Does anyone have any good editors? I think Pro Tools is the best, I use that, but i wanted something that I don't need my interface for. Any suggestions?

    A lot of peeps are going to suggest Peak 4..but I can't stand that one..but some folks swear by it.

    I love Logic Express for Midi editing.

    Soundtrack Pro is nice too..

    Digital Performer by MOTU is probably the most similar to Pro Tools, and you don't need an interface for it to work..

    Riccisoft made a really cool, free program for OS9 called "SoundEffects'. Not really for piecing music together, but great for small editing/tweaking etc.
    It's a shame there isn't an updated OSX version.

    I think BIAS Peak is considered the standard Mac stereo audio editor, but I can't stand it. I honestly haven't used anything as good as Adobe Audition on the Mac, but Soundtrack Pro looks very promising.

    I use Peak LE4 at my home studio. It just depends on what your going for. I use Peak because it is close to the old "Cool Edit" that I used at a radio station and you use what you know. Make sense? Before you make a choice check out Bias-Inc, makers of Peak and Deck and some other cool products. Hope this helps.

    Warmest Regards,

    Duff-Man says...if you want a great audio editing program check out DSP Quattro - it is a lot cheaper than Peak and perhaps even more intuitive to use (I own Peak 5 and DSP-Q - I use DSP-Q more...)...oh yeah!

    Duff-Man thanks for your post regarding DSP Quatro.

    I looked through the siteand could not find references to which
    interfaces and or controllers are support.

    There was also no reference to the number of recordable live analog and midi tracks supported.

    Or is this strictly a post production editor?

    DSP-Quattro is a two channel (L+R) editor and vsti host. There really wouldn't be much for the interface to do other than control plug ins and instruments.
    I'm with Duff Man on this one though, it's soo easy to use, really well supported, a killer price and all the updates so-far have been free.

    I like Audacity, although its pretty simplistic, it gets the job done and is great freeware.

    Also audacity lets you use VST plugins. You can download hundreds of free VST plugins - reverbs, distortions, phasers and other delights.

    kvr-vst is a good resource for all things VST.

    But yeah Adobe need to pull their finger out their *** and make Audition for Mac. Nothing is better in my opinion.
