Question: How is it that It's not possible to edit an audio file in another program while the file is open in almost any modern daw, reaper included. As a streamlined workflow including a distructive wave editor and a sequencer is such an obvious necessity. or in another words why DAWs need to lock access to the files by other programs? even in case of reaper it requires reaper playback to stop in order to be able to save the file in third party audio editors.

    It's complicated, some of it is OS-driven, but allowing other programs to write to files out from under you would be bad, then when things went wrong you'd get blamed.
