I have access to Audition most of the time, so I use often use that when I want to edit dialogue, but I'm looking for a simple backup program that I can put on my laptop to use when I can't get in the studio. I've got Logic and Ableton on my laptop for music use but I don't think either is really appropriate and I hate editing audio within a DAW anyway.
Audacity was my first thought as I used and enjoyed it quite a lot several years ago, but on Mountain Lion it is giving me nothing but trouble. I'm sure I could get to the bottom of this over on the Audacity forum but it has made me curious about alternatives. What's out there that's good? I'm looking for freeware/ cheap (sub £20) because I'm broke...
I'm giving the TwistedWave trial version a go and I like it a lot, I'd say all that I'm missing is a spectral view. But it's $80/ £50 and although I'm finding using it to be a better experience than I remember Audacity being, I'm not sure it's worth £50 compared to Audacity's £0.
So yeah, what free or cheap editors are you using?
