We are here to encourage and support new multichannel releases from those companies that still provide them and as such the distribution of illegal copies of recordings is counter-productive to that effort.

When Sony wanted to design a video editor software program for Windows, they purchased Sound Forge audio editing which had gained favor as an very intuitive and user friendly AND powerful software. They took this design and made it into Sony Vegas NLE for PC.

I use Vegas 13 for much of my audio editing projects and not just video things. It’s got everything, except I don’t think that my version outputs to DSD, not that I world ever convert a beautiful PCM into that codec if given a chance.

Btw I did not see an Audio Bundle on that site with all of those neat packages of “low-cost” software packs.
