I don't have the latest version of Peak LE, maybe later versions are
click-free, (mine is 5.2).

My editing needs are relatively simple and I don't have much need for
cutting out pieces of audio in the middle of a sequence.  But I
thought it would be good to try out the 'how tos'.

If I do chop out a piece it will always be in a quiet part of a track
and then I usually don't have click problems.  But if I try it on
something loud then a click seems inevitable.

A procedural problem?  well my method is simply to select the bit of
audio I don't want and click the delete button.

Motu Digital Performer for Mac looks interesting but is probably more
complex than I need.  RX is great for any noise treatments though!
