Dave, the issue is that even using Audacity's native format, on-the-fly editing is not possible. If you stop recording, you have to start a whole new track to continue during your session. That is the fundamental flaw that most of us here seem to object to.

so the authors of this free software should re-write all of their audio routines to handle another format for your convenience? have a heart.

i was suggesting for a specific situation, that recording + editing on the fly would go much smoother using the native format, and then export the final result as wav. let audacity work for you instead of working against it.

    would it work to just 'bite the bullet' and record in audacity's

    trying to use wav for every step of the process?
