   Ive only noticed drop outs / choppy behavior from wave editor and SEQ2 when 
the source is mono / single channel being exported to stereo.  As mentioned its 
a shame these two dont work better together, when they are stable its great - 
but Ive lost count how many times Ive spent over an hour fiddling with SEQ2 
only to hit save and then it crashes... litereally...  I managed to grab SEQ2 
when there was a group buy going on, i think it was 49 dollars. Which was some 
time ago and Ive not noticed any updates since.
Both have major stability issues. Which is why I opted also for Amadeus pro, 
shame it doest have a real time plug in architecture the same as waveeditor - 
but for editing without eq its far faster. And the sonogram feature is worth 
the asking price alone.
