How to select tracks in Sound Studio 4.7.0 and later:
To select an individual track or set of tracks in Sound Studio, hold down the Command key and then click on the track(s) you'd like to select. By default, clicking once in the main waveform view automatically selects all tracks. Many users were previously unable to easily select and edit all tracks in Sound Studio, so we made this change to make this feature possible. You can read more about this feature in our user manual under Keyboard Shortcuts at http://felttip.com/ss/reference.html.
What's New in Version 4.7.8
Bug fixes related to playing audio, including looping, fast-forward, and rewind functions. Also fixed some minor UI glitches.
My Go-To Conversion App
I’ve been using, Sound Studio, for as long as I can remember (ok, at least 12 years). It has been my Go-To app for converting my old, vinyl albums to digital files. Easy Mac interface, and well written help section, via the web. Just used Sound Studio this morning to create a new ring tone from one of my iTunes song files.
I’ve tried some other app’s for converting vinyl to digital, but Sound Studio is the best, for me.
Missing a key element
Sound Studio will not capture sound from your computer. Want to record an audio snipet of a your favorite guitar lesson for quick review later? You can’t. This seems so obvious to have in a lite audio editor, but it is the reason I use it rarely.
