Collaborative Audio Editing

I'm looking for a way to edit a podcast collaboratively in real time. I'm hoping for something akin to Google Docs but for audio.

My research has lead me to a few cloud options, such as ohm studio, but it looks like these solutions lean more towards real time midi pattern syncs, uploading pre-edited clips, or directly capturing live audio vs. editing waveform like in Adobe Audition or Audacity.

I read a little about using Audition with Creative Cloud, but I didn't come across any info that explicitly described the process I was looking to achieve. It read more like you'd be able to share projects with people using Creative Cloud in the same way you would upload/share something using Dropbox or OneDrive.

Is there something out there that would allow me to accomplish this type of editing?

Thanks for reading!

Audio is analog data that has been digitized. This cannot be edited by more than 1 user at a time.

Thanks for your quick reply. I don't doubt that you're right, but my lack of understanding of this limitation creates a few questions.

It seems like the origin of digitized data shouldn't present an issue, but if think about another process like scanning a document and expecting to edit it without an OCR pass, then it kind of gives me some idea (I'm not sure if that's even an accurate comparison in this case).

My thought process goes like this... audio file in cloud storage, opened on two machines, user 1 locks a section of audio preventing user 2 from making changes, user 2 does the same action (user 1 can hear user 2's edits in real time if they choose, but no cross editing can occur on a locked section. this would be vice versa for user 2)... top these features off with some type of  "approval of changes", and it seems doable in my ignorance of what sounds like an underlying issue.

Do you happen to know if anyone has explained in detail why this can't be done? I'd like to read up on it just out of curiosity.
