If you're in a lower tax-bracket, I'd recommend using open source
tools like Audacity, which are free.  Audacity is a wonderful
cross-platform audio editing application - in other words, it works on
Mac, Windows, and Linux operating systems.  So if you have a dusty old
PC with an early Pentium processor on it or something, you can slap
Linux on it for free, Audacity for free, and go to work.  I don't
believe Audacity is as robust as CoolEdit or Acid software, but it
does the job fine.
