brilliant! wish i could do it.
as far as recording/editing software, the following is the best free download program around. i record on a fostex MR8 and mix everything (raw tracks) using this program. you can even import stereo .wav files if you want to edit them.
you can cut, paste, remove noise, everything. the effects are a little cheesy, but who needs them? it is a very stable program. i notice they have a beta version, but i have not tried it.
