Paul posted about this thing called metasynth:

I downloaded it and tried it out. It's very different, but very, very cool.
It was done by the guy who wrote some/all of Kai's Power Tools, so as you
can imagine its a completely visually oriented synth/sample editor thing.
Really quite fun and remarkable, and designing filters with the spraypaint
tool was just too much! It might not be the practical thing you're looking
for, but try it anyway.

Other than that, I haven't been paying attention to that field for a while.
Is Digidesign Sound Designer still around? Seemed to be the thing all the
sound design people were using last I paid attention.
