Cool Edit 2000

AFAIK this is the only version ever available.  It is what it is, you either have it or not.  It was only a year or two later that Adobe bought it;  I just checked, Adobe Audition runs ~US$20/month.  Let's see, that would have been around US$3500 I'd have spent to use it for all these years.

What works

Everything I've tested works.  I've recorded several 45's and one album side, declicked them, normalized the volume, run an FFT filter (like a graphic EQ), done a standard noise reduction, saved as both .wav and .mp3 (easy to save either the entire waveform or selected section).  Oh yes, it includes a Fraunhoffer (sp?) licensed mp3 encoder.

What does not

The Windows volume controls.  There is a button to bring up the Windows mixer, but it just generates a file-not-found error.  As a workaround I simply opened Alsamixer in a terminal in another desktop.


What was not tested

The DX (direct-X) plugins.  After reading the report on Cool Edit Pro not starting if it had its directX file in place, I didn't try to install the plugin.

Miscellaneous other functions that, obviously, I don't use much.

Additional Comments

The only reason I don't rate it "platinum" is that the menu item created by Wine didn't work, and while attempting to add one that did, the main executable mysteriously disappeared. I ran the main installer again (ce2kmain), didn't have to run the registration or the noise reduction installer again. Simply let it install a desktop icon, which worked.
