I've used Total Recorder for about 4 years now. The built-in job scheduler allows me to run half-hour or hour segments 24/7 for two tuners ( could do more if I needed to ). Variable record settings permit management of file type and size, program is easy to use and a great value - still priced under $20 for the Standard Edition. I use it for both AM and FM DX'ing.
For playback and editing I use either Power Audio Editor or Cool Edit 2000. These have large graphic displays which make locating Es or MS hits easier. If I really need to clean up a recording ( usually AM ) I use Cool Edit as it has more features to modify the audio result.
