I'm looking for a very simplistic app, not a full blown audio editor, to take a contiguous audio file and easily slice it up into takes.

Takes would be saved as separate files for ease of reference.

Suggestions?

Tnx.

Audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/) is a good free tool for basic level audio editing and should be able to do the task. I believe it even has a feature that can chop up long clips into several shorter ones automatically.

If you want more functionality than what audacity provides and want a much more rapid and user friendly editing environment, then reaper (http://www.cockos.com/reaper/) is among the best audio editing tools out there. It is worth every penny at ~$60

Actually, I want LESS functionality than Audacity: merely and simply a 'slicer', nothing else pretty much.

How about QuickTime Player. Simple as it gets.
Don't even think you need Pro version. :)

If it's possible to abuse the Motion Mixer interface somehow that could be a very nice starting point for a home made Lscript.

no really, the interface of mm could be very nice for an application like this.
