Wavelab beat its longtime rival Sound Forge with 19% of the votes. Most probably because its versions for Mac and PC are pretty homogeneous in terms of functions, but also because its design was revamped recently. They also have features spectographic edition without the need of an external application.
Sound Forge racked up 18% of the votes, lost the top part probably due to Sony’s lack of making any further developments. Adobe’s s Audition is a safe bet when it comes to multitrack editing being the first tool to incorporate spectographic edition.
