dear chris cosgrove,
your absolutely right with all that you have posted and please notice that i do not trying by any way to promote or to advice anybody to download any non legal software and i wish to make that clear
cool edit is a very old program and as far i know can be downloaded legally from he site i have mentioned in my previous post if not then i apologize and please delete my post
if you have any doubts about cool edit it is a good idea to contact adobe and i am sure they will tell you if the cool edit can be downloaded legally as a completely free version without any limitations or as a demo
the prices you have mentioned for adobe's audition are for different versions
the only reason i have posted my reply to the forum was to tell to whom it may concern that the cool edit is a very good program since i was a cool edit user and the demo version i was working for a couple of years haven't had any major limitations
i hope that i have cleared the things
