Hi!

I use Presonus' Studio One software for recording - interestingly enough even the free version (Studio One Prime) will let you record and save wave files, although the built in soundcard of your computer may limit the resolution you can record in. I use an Audient USB external interface to achieve this.

For editing (track marks, normalization, fade-ins and outs), I use a really old piece of software called Goldwave. One of my two computers runs Studio One Professional, and I am sure that can do anything that Goldwave does and beyond, but I know the latter really well, so for now I am sticking with that.

Studio One Professional also has excellent facilities for arranging the order of the tracks, applying (cross)fades and so on, and in the end I export the files as a digital project (DPP), which can then be played either from my computer or from my (Marshall smart)phone. I haven't had a chance to check yet if I can burn a DVD that will play as an audio disc on my BluRay player.

Generally, I won't apply EQ or other processing to the original recording. I'll normalize the highest peak of an entire album to 97,5% before splitting side A and B into individual tracks, meaning that the original dynamics are kept unaltered

How about you, daldiggler - any experience with this? If so, what do you use?
