We're looking into external tool support. Please let us know!
Multiple selections are possible.

One thing I do love with soundforge editing is zooming in and out of waveform with mouse wheel. Audition is a great editor that i use a fair bit for processing, effects and clean up but soundforge is my most used and prefered when just doing a lot of detailed sample chopping and fade in fade outs to stop clicking.

I also like its ability to set its sample rate to any number i choose if i want to do quick time and pitch shifting.

If the pro version used a similar zoom with mouse wheel and audio extraction, i'd likely not need to use soundforge.

Haven't used too many of those, but I do like Adobe Soundbooth (latest version was in CS5, was replace by Audition) and Audacity.x

Nice question.... :D

Maybe sounds a little strange, but i always edit my samples etc in my DAW (bitwig)
And then i resample a lot...

So thats the reason i use Image line Edison. (because of drag and drop feature also)
Put it on a track hit rec and go.. when finished cut normalize etc and drop it in my DAW.

:oops: Edit: it,s a VST and a standalone product.

I would also add Edison - cool since it also exists as VST so you can directly record, edit and then play back in sync.
I also find Ocenaudio quite interesting, especially GUIwise - and it handles multichannel audio.

But my main editor is Audition 3 (I also have 5.5 but that's a major failure IMO) - I use it since I bought Cool Edit on a floppy via Compuserve in the pre-Internet times, then Cool Edit Pro and finally Audition... :-)

Recently I started using Audacity much more, since it handles Surround/Multichannel, FLAC and AC3 much much better than any of my other tools. While it feels a bit clumsy, it's quite capable.

DAW-wise Bitwig is my main software together with Usine Hollyhock 2.

Cheers,

Tom

Besides, does anyone of you own a mobile recorder (e.g. Olympus LS-5/10, etc. or any other brand, except Zoom) with the ability to set index markers during recording?

@ThomasHelzle: Hollyhock looks heaps powerful.

@Tom: Yeah, Usine is amazing :-)

I have a Sony PCM-M10 - do you need samples with markers to test?

Cheers,

Tom

Yeah, most definitely! (Lovely piece of kit.)

I started with cool edit years ago, went to Audition when Adobe bought it, flirted with Audacity and REAPER Vers 4 and have returned to Audition

Previously I had been using Soundforge as a file-based editor from about 1996 till I started having major problems with v11 around 2009/10. I found Twistedwave (OSX only) and I was so happy with this editor I dropped Soundforge all together. Twistedwave is incredibly stable and has excellent core features like plugin chains and batch audio processing. I stopped doing any file based editing in Windows after that.

Pro Tools (of course..)
But I’ve been flirting with Steinberg Wavelab & Twisted Wave.

Acon Acoustica7, and sometimes Ocen AUdio (the latter one is portable).

Funny, one of the reasons I bought Resonic Pro is because it allows to select and "slice" a piece of a sample, then drag and drop that selection directly into my DAW (Ableton).

I tried several of the listed tools on the poll, and none could do that simple action.

I actually use Resonic as the selected "external editor" in Live.

Beyond slicing I can also easily browse the other samples of that sample's folder.

I mostly use Izotope RX for editing and sometimes Image-line edison, depending on what is most convenient at the time or the job.

If this is for testing editors for an "open in external editor" option. iZotope RX 7 and Melodyne Studio would be what I would use. If I could setup those two as my editors that would be amazing.

Reaper mostly, tab to transient is a cool feature. Edison & Cool Edit at times also.
