Use your Mac for any audio-related task, such as live audio recording, creating iPhone ringtones, digitizing tapes and records, converting between a variety of sound formats (including Mp3, Mp4, AIFF, WAVE, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis), remastering your iTunes music library, etc.
Thanks to its outstanding direct-to-disk abilities and waveform caching, edits on arbitrarily large sounds are performed at lightning speed. The handling of large sounds is furthermore facilitated by the extensive support of markers.
While Amadeus Lite features a number of built-in audio effects (equalizer, speed and pitch change, echo, etc), its abilities can be extended arbitrarily by the support of Audio Units.
Ratings and Reviews
When it works, its great. When it doesnt work... I'm up a creek w/o a paddle
I use this program for school lectures, cutting, editing and creating audio learning. They're recorded on my iPhone as voice memos, transfered to my iTunes as 3 hour lectures, then cut down to 30 minute - 1 hour long repetetive audio clips. The app was great the first week I used it. But now it's having a hard time recognizing my bluetooth headphones and it won't play the lectures I've been working on. I thought that it may have been the computer, so I deleted the app. I reloaded it and got the same results.
(Currently I'm running Mac OS X 10.6.8 otherwise known as Snow Leppard. Next week Apple is upgrading my computer for free and I'm scarded stiff that the app won't run on Lion, according to the other reviews I've read)
Hopefully the makers of this app realize its needs a tweek or two, cause I really think its a great tool for audio learners.
The main reason I bought this app was for recording LPs and minidiscs to my Mac Mini. As far as I can tell it is flawless. I just recorded a 74 minute long minidisc recording of a live concert. After it was done, I found and marked the end of each track, then used the "cut to new file" function and saved each track as a new file. There are many file types to choose from. Every function was fast. My mini has 8 gigs of RAM, which probably helps, but there was no waiting for any processing. The volume adjustment (drag the line between left and right tracks up and down) was perfect for hiding the few seconds of me playing with the line levels at the beginning of the recording.
Worth the money... no doubt about it.
Simple and Straight-forward Audio Editor
I bought this app because I needed a simple, easy-to-use app to do some minor edits to some voice-over recordings. While I haven't explored the feature set beyond my specific needs (trimming clips, normalizing audio, format conversion, etc), I have found it quite effective, fast, and stable. So far, I haven't had to even look at the manual to find out how to do something.
There is a Pro version available for sale through the developer's website that has some features that may come in handy in the future. Hopefully some of those features will make it over to this version in a future update.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
