Hi,
I do not know why software developers for video editing, never bother that much to develop and include with software packages such as Ulead Media Studio Pro 6, a digital mixer similar to any one included in audio sequencer programs, so as to be able to mix several tracks of audio together without the hassle of having to fade waves manually, and crosschexking your results again and again. Or am I missing something? Would appreciate your views maybe .......

I've been using Vegas Video for a couple of weeks now and it's bloody good. Previously I've used MediaStudio Pro 6 and EditDV 2, Vegas is slightly less intuitive but far more powerful. As for sound, the control that you have over sound is amazing, not surprising really as Sonic Foundry are reknowned for their audio products like Soundforge, Acid etc.
