Customer Reviews

go-to editor for my current project

Currently working on version 2 of my iOS game, and this editor is the best all-around audio program I've found for all the sound work I'm doing. A few more sound effects would be nice, but the addition of plugins will probably address that. Love the fact that it uses little-endian by default when saving to .caf files. Overall, very pleasant and elegant UI. Great job.

Nice, well done interface, easy to use...

I have been using this utility to record and convert old Reel to Reel tapes I made 30 years or more ago to digital audio files. This utility has performed exceptionally well for me. Granted, there is a small learning curve to get through, but once you learn some of it’s many features, it’s a jewel to use. Yes, you need a fast hard drive, and ample RAM and processor speed to make use of it, but even on a MacBook Pro, it’s performed well. Yes, as the Manual says, if you want to record audio from a online source you will need to install “Sunflower” a free utility. I had no problems obtaining and installing this utility. Yes, there is little information on how to make use of this addition utility, but with a little experimenting one can figure it out. Vector provides and good manual with lots of useful information and a link to the Sunflower utility WEB site. The Sunflower files have been moved, but there is a link to the new site at the old one. The more I use this utility, the more I like it. It’s really a bargain for it modest cost. I have used Vector-3 to record over a hundred sound files, and it has performed very well.

If you are not technically inclined, then this App may not be for you…However, if you are willing to spend some time and learn, it’s a nice tool. The interface design is very easy to pickup and learn. The authors of Vector have spent a lot of time and effort make it easy to use, and with the capabilities it has it’s worth every penny that they are making it available for…Fine utility, Recommended.
