there's not really much to choose from, unfortunately. never understood why. i think Bias Peak LE is probably your best bet.

thanks nomos- yeah i gathered there wasn't much which is kind of crazy really.

Yeah, Peak is the one. Wiretap has a basic editor in it. People have told me Amadeus was 'soundforge for the mac', but its nowhere near as good.

I find its best to just dual boot into windows and use SF. Its by far the best wave editor on any platform.

ah crap yes of course- great idea actaully- i just got parallels and i have an old copy of XP. i used to like cool edit too.

I use Amadeus Pro for simple recording / editing:

If you have Logic Studio you also get Waveburner and Soundtrack Pro too, of course.

I usually end up using a combination of Amadeus Pro, Soundtrack Pro and Waveburner, which is far from ideal but not really a problem either.

Other options I know of are:

Audiofile Engineering Wave Editor:

DSP Quattro:

They all have demos I think.

I've tried this one and thought it was decent:


it's not bad for quick edits of the kind I usually need. I did find the simple wave editor department a bit lacking... I guess got too used to Cool Edit on windows.
