I would like to start editing songs in much the same way as earlier was done by cutting and splicing 1/4" reel-to-reel tape. Here's a short example I've uploaded. As you'll notice, the song is heavily edited, taking bits and pieces from different sections of the song and rearranged as well as bits of silences rhytmically inserted etc. I haven't come across many Mac users editing like this (they mostly seem to use PCs and I'm still investigating what kind of software they're using so I can ask around for equivelant Mac software), but I've understood this much that you really need an editor that will allow you to divide your song into suitably small "chunks" that can easily be copied/moved around. I'm not talking about the usual time "ruler" which any editor has, because this is not relative to the beat in the song. I not to define a way of defining "how long a measure is" (and fractions of this), then repeat this throughout the song so I can copy/move an exact length rhythmically speaking. I've been suggested Wave Editor (US$ 250) which apparently can do this (I'm still trying to learn it via the 15 day demo), but I'm wondering what else is out there? I believe someone claimed that Logic and Logic Express can be used to edit this way too. I'm considering getting Logic express as I need something to be able to function as a recording studio to complement my MIDI gear, and if it can be used to edit "tape style" as well, then nothing could be better.
