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 4.8.1
• Artwork images can now be dragged from the file's Info sheet into the Finder.
• Fixed a bug with reading artwork and comment tags in MP3 ID3v2.3 and later versions.
• Fixed several minor UI bugs.
• Improved waveform display now is in Retina resolution.
• Fixed bug with Insert Silence duration field.
• Fixed bug with Monbots where the app would crash when processing large, uncompressed files.
• Fixed issue with accessing third-party audio unit plug-ins in the app.
When I need to do manipulating of a sound file, I find that Sound Studio makes things very easy to get the job done. Just the scroll wheel alone makes it lightning quick to find what I want. Very good job on the clean, reliable, solid interface!
1) When Apple switched the scroll direction of the scroll wheel to “Natural” mode, it took some getting used to, but now I don’t want to go back. The only place I find that it is a disadvantage is in Sound Studio, where reversing the vertical scroll wheel direction makes things counterintuitive, IMHO. Can Felt Tip add a simple toggle somewhere (maybe in the Preferences window) that would allow the user to reverse the effective direction of the vertical scrolling within Sound Studio?
2) This is not a dealbreaker, but it would be nice to have MP3 output as an export option. As it is, I need to go back and forth between Audacity and Sound Studio to produce an MP3 file.
