Yes, I have been using it. So far, as a long-time SF PC user I am disappointed... I have had a lot (A LOT) of crashes and slow behaviours (eg. hit space and wait 3 seconds for the audio to actually start playing). I hope there are patches in the near future, because there are some great interface improvements compared to the 'classic' SF version I am used to. This could be really good editing software, but right now, there are probably better options imho. Commenting from 3.0 (build 97).

Thanks for your report.

Many of us share your disappointment. Yes, the PC version of SF is a terrific, fast, and most importantly, stable two-track editor. For editing podcasts, radio, interviews, etc., there is nothing comparable. Sadly, the SFM versions fail miserably to stack up. Crashing, even when simply playing back audio on a state of the art MAC mini, is incomprehensible in this day and age.

Just encountered the same crash I thought I would upgrade from. I was putting multple regions together and it crashed. Opened it back up to zoom out, and it crashed again. So, what I'm not allowed to zoom in or out? That's what I call "BS"
