    Hi.

    I have cool edit pro right now.

    exactly what makes CEP any better or worse than any other multi-tracking software out there?

    although i have used the software quite a bit for a myriad of purposes, i feel i am hardly qualified to pass any kind of judgement on it.

    so what are it's strengths? weaknesses? what software packages are better and why?

    i understand that this is a forum for CEP users ... but i would appreciate objectivity.

    i am quite a newbie and am dreadfully sorry if this question has been asked before.

    thank you for your time.

    It's cheaper than most and easier to use than many.

    On the other hand, it doesn't have real-time processing of effects, so you have to wait forever to apply some reverbs, for example. Another downside is that Syntrillium are taking a very long to come up with a new version of Cool Edit, which everyone is hoping will bring it up to par with other editors.

    Well frank, there are lots of reason I think CEP is alot better than any other multitrack programs like Cakewalk, N-Track studio. For one, you have a tons of tools at your fingertips, actually some of the best tools you can find. You have a lot more options with CEP than any other program.

    Some things I dislike about CEP are how long it takes some things to process. In the latest update of CEP (1.2a) they have made processing time go by a bit quicker.

    The best thing to do is to try out some demos of other multitrackers and see which program fits your needs the best but I bet you'll be using CEP in the end.

    What kind of system are you running? How much memory? What type of soundcard?

    i am running on a 450 mhz system. i have about 128 meg of RAM, and have a Guillimont Maxisound Fortissimo sound card. The only problem is i have a 5 gb hard drive. yeah ... that kind of sucks a lot.

    I am considering in investing in one of those cards with 8 inputs (so i can wire in my 8 track and record all of the tracks at once). Do you guys think that my system could handle that? (if i OF COURSE attained a bigger hard drive).

    thanks for the input everyone. i know what you mean about stuff taking so long on CEP. maybe that is why i smoke so many cigarettes when i am using it.
