    Does anyone know of any good mac based audio editing software?

    I need to normalize, track mark, resave and burn a mix. I can't get Toast to work and I'm not sure if Peak 3 trial version is going to work.

    Any other suggestions?

    As far as I know you don't have much of a choice,
    peak is probably your best choice for WAV editing.

    Current waveeditors for OSX that I know of Peak & Spark.

    For OS9 there is Soundedit. Soundedit is my favorite, because it allows you to zoom right in and manipulate individual samples in an audio file...However it hasnt been in development for years, and therefore there is no version for OS X.

    Hope this helps,

    What about pro tools. Most mastering houses use that.
    To bad Wavelab is not available for mac.

    Although there is a software based version, protools is hardware reliant -it needs it's hardware counterpart to be able to do it's magic.

    Jeremy,

    For those things that you listed, the freeware of Pro Tools available from the Digidesign site will work no problem.

    For OS 9 the BEST choice for what you want to do is Emagic Waveburner. Hands down. Supposedly they have an OS X version in development but I haven't seen it.

    Waveburner isn't so great if you want to do really extensive editing, but you can get right down to the sample, it's all graphic, and you can drag track index markers right over the wave display.

    It also supports CD Text sub-code editing, and all the other stuff like UPC codes etc. The Pro version also includes mastering plug-ins like limiting and multiband compression (and I really like the sound of Emagic's Multiband comp in Logic).
