I am currently working on editing a live audio production in audacity and I'm finding that cutting this up is rather time intensive. I'm looking for a piece of software that is geared more towards editing multitrack conversations then blending audio tracks.
My preferance would be having the ability to quickly fade in and out the segments of audio for each person. Throughout the 40 minute production, the focus of the audio jumps from track to track. Since this prodcution follows a radio play format, when one person is talking, the other tracks need to be mute.
While audacity works, I'm rather lazy and I'm always looking for ways to make my life easier. If anyone has any sugestions of better software, preferably something that doesn't cost a whole lot ($1000+), I'd love to hear it. I'm running windows XP and working with .WAV files.
