Audio Editting Software


Hey All
I am almost ready to completely switch to linux but I have a few issues. The biggest and the one I can not work around is Audio Editing. We use Cool Edit at work thus I use Cool Edit at home. So is there anything out their comparable ? Even better something that can read Cool Edit session files. I went to the CoolEdit site but it seems they were bought by Adobe and Adobe does not have much info on the software yet. Anyway I thought since Mac's are running a Linux of sorts maybe companies compile there software for both. Any suggestion would be nice

i've never used cooledit, so i don't know if this would be "comparable", but try looking at audacity.

Thanks for the reply !
This seems to be a nice little program but I need something with multi-Track capabilities and a lot more control over the wave form

You have overlooked audacity a bit, because it has the capability of multi-Tracking. (at least ... the latest version, which I have) It can do more than you think!
In fact, Audacity is sort of a Cool Edit clone for linux. Right now, it can't really compete with Cool Edit, but I hope that's soon to come.
Other soundeditors you can find are snd and glame. Just Google. And how about running cep through wine?
