Using Vegas just for audio
« on: June 25, 2009, 02:45:01 PM »
I am thinking of changing DAW software.   Currently I use SoundForge 9 for the vast majority of my editing but I also use Wavelab 5 just for mixing four track tapes down.

Earlier this week a vendor offered me a boxed version of Vegas Pro 9 that was an unopened giveaway.  It includes the 64bit version which has prompted my thoughts of switching programs.  I have 12GB of RAM that largely goes unused in 32bit editing software.

So I guess my questions are 1. Is there a good guide or tutorial for just using the audio portion of the program because the manual is almost all video related?   2. Does Vegas have the ability to render four tracks to two like Wabelab?

Anyone using Vegas as their primary editing software have any tips, suggestions?

Vegas started as a Multi-Track Audio editing application back when Sonic Foundry was developing their creative apps.  They did some very well coded apps that were intuitive and stable on the PC platform.  Video was an add on. 

Do a search for Douglas Spotted Eagle.  He moderates the vegas board at Creative Cow and has done many tutorials. He'll be able to steer you to some good training material.  He is a nice guy, too, very helpful.  And he knows Sony's Creative software better than anyone I know.

You can open unlimited audio tracks in Vegas and render them to two.

I use Vegas mostly for video work.  But, I use it for Audio along with the other Sony wares, Sound Forge 9 and Acid Pro 7.  Good Stuff.

Send a pm if I can help you further.
