DAW with parallel Editing Feature

Hello All!
I have a short question.
I want to record the bass guitar direct DI and on an other channel running through a hardware comp DI.
If i have to do punch in/out stuff or editing is there a DAW which has the feature that i can mark this two tracks and in order to do parallel editing so that cutting track 1 cuts the respective second track on the same place?
I´m currently on Ableton Live.
Thanks

I don't have any experience with Live, but im sure you can do track grouping. Actually a google search for "Ableton Live track grouping" brings up a couple tutorial videos on how to group tracks in Live.

I've never used Live but the DAWs I have used all had the ability to edit multiple tracks at once.

I mean, basic editing tasks would be a horrendous pain otherwise.

And, of course, I think most modern DAWs give one the ability to perform various ad hoc groupings in order to change various settings at once. I know mine does -- and I can't imagine hobbling myself by using a DAW that didn't.

It's 2010. We may not have flying cars but, for gosh sake, we should at least be able to change a bunch of volumes, pans, or outputs at once, I should think. heh

I like sonar because of the track folders and multiple tracks inside tracks, but protools and logic have some cool grouping as well...

but as everybody said, most daws can do what you want, each in a different way...

Logic can definitely do it - put two channels in the same group, and on the group settings, enable 'record' linking (and maybe sample-perfect editing too).

Usually you don't even need to group but can select both files/regions and apply the same editing and processing at the same time.

Live can do this in at least 3 ways:

1. Select the region (Live calls these "clips") that you want to edit. A orange line with a downward facing triangle will appear on the clip. Shift click on the other clips that you want to edit or cut in the same place. Live will select all those clips. Then press command - e. All clips will be cut in the same place. If you only want some clips cut, but not others, use command-click.

2. Create a locator marker in the area you want to edit. Click on the locator marker. A orange line with a downward facing arrow at the top of the line will appear across all clips in your Live set. Press command-e.

3. Activate the loop cycle. Set the loop cycle to the desired length. Click on the loop cycle. Two orange lines with a downward facing arrows at the top of the lines will appear across all clips in your Live set and highlight an area the length of the loop cycle. Press command-e.
