Version: 2.3.4
Looks like a promising start, and I'm going to keep my eye on this, but the fact that it doesn't do multiple tracks is a befuddling omission. While I can only speak for myself, most of my audio editing (that goes beyond the most basic trimming) is to blend multiple audio recordings into one. For this I need at least two tracks so that I can do beat matching or x-fades, etc. Until that feature is added, there's not much point in me evaluating this.
