Editors' Review

+

Amadeus Pro is an audio editing tool for the Mac that works quickly and easily to record, split, edit, and export audio tracks. While not as feature rich as a tool like GarageBand, it runs a lot smoother and faster and has a few tools that make it a bit easier to use, at least up front, than other comparably priced tools.

When you install Amadeus Pro, you can start using it immediately in a trial mode that lasts for 30 days. Therefore all of the tools are unlocked and you can start recording, creating new tracks, editing, and exporting to CD or audio file. Everything you'll need for basic editing is onscreen, while more advanced tools are hidden in the file menus. This can be frustrating, at times, because you won't know where everything is and the manual for the software has to be downloaded separately. However, the tools that are provided will cover 90 percent of what you need to do in most basic editing situations. The best part of Amadeus Pro, however, is the speed and flexibility of the tools; there was rarely a slow down or pause in our editing and rendering occurred very fast.

If you want a fast, easy-to-use editing tool that doesn't overload you with options or slow down whenever you press a button, then consider Amadeus Pro. It's not a perfect audio editing tool and the full price is a bit higher than some apps with more features; but for those that like a smaller, lighter app with more responsive controls, this one gets the job done very well.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Amadeus Pro for Mac 2.1.3.

"Very clunky, documentation sucks!"

September 12, 2013  |  By mickmcclain

 |  Version: Amadeus Pro 2.1.3

Pros

Very fast at pitch conversions, for example converting audio from an old 16 RPM record recorded at 33 RPM, conversion is fast!

Cons

Record interface useless! No pause, no clip guard, just guess and pray! Also, the denoising tools are worthless! No logic to the control interface....select audio first, then try preview? What and where in the waveform am I previewing? The curser head indicator doesn't move in denoise...this entire app feels like you're shooting in the dark....results may be OK, but you cannot monitor what you're doing! Most frustrating navigation ever! Have to do all navigating, selecting etc from drop downs.

Summary

Waste of time and money! Tab back to start doesn't work either....

"The only app I use for music editing."

June 26, 2011  |  By sherpadog

 |  Version: Amadeus Pro 2.0

Pros

Easy to cut and paste song sections
I can't ever recall the developer asking for more money for new versions.

Cons

Interface is better but still a little clunky.

Summary

I do a lot of song/music editing. Most of my Web design customers are in the music business and don't want whole tunes downloaded for free. It's very easy for me to make up samples to play as background or to be used for tunes on a given recording.

"Upgrade option does not work. No communication path."

June 20, 2011  |  By Mike Reith

 |  Version: Amadeus Pro 2.0

Pros

I love this product and use it all the time.Best in the business.

Cons

I upgraded without any warning that this upgrade required a new purchase. I found a path to upgrade rather than buy but all I get is that there is something wrong with my product.

Summary

I won't rate this badly because of an admin glitch, which is what I hope it is, but I will not give it a high rating unless they turn this around.

"Works well, stable. Fun see waveform when fine editing"

January 15, 2011  |  By gil_woolley

 |  Version: Amadeus Pro 1.5.4

Pros

Excellent support. Reported a problem on previous version 27 December 2010. This latest version was available 13 January, 2011.

Cons

It is really tedious to clean up clicks and scratches found on recordings I make from old vinyl records. That is a problem mostly of the records. But the process is not fun.

Summary

Excellent flexibility changing whatever input format I start with. AIFF, mp3, MPEG. I edit in AIFF and convert back to a compressed format to be stored on my iPod. Will convert stereo to mono. Probably can do many other things that I do not need to do right now.

"Still the best"

December 19, 2010  |  By sherpadog

 |  Version: Amadeus Pro 1.5.2

Pros

This guy never stops improving his software. I would compare him with the folks who write BBEdit. Amadeus is still the best tool I have found for editing clips for a lot of the Web sites I design (I have a lot of musician clients).

Cons

The interface has vastly improved but still has a kind of clunky look.

Summary

I'm a fan of Amadeus and have been almost since its inception.

"Absolute bargain for the price!"

November 11, 2008  |  By HerrFunken

 |  Version: Amadeus Pro 1.3.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Amadeus Pro is up there with Bias Peak IMO. At $40 (!) though, Amadeus knocks the spots of Peak! This latest version (of Amadeus Pro) is fabulous. Buy it and love it.

Well done Hairersoft! :¬)

"Recording from LP and auto defining cuts is NG"

July 19, 2007  |  By balfred_dotmac

 |  Version: Amadeus Pro 1.0.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I bought Amadeus Pros after reading a MacWorld review commending Amadeus II's track splitting prowess. Amadeus II is supposed to find the quiet spots inbetween different songs, and automatically break the one long recording of the LP into individual cuts.

I can't evaluate Amadeus II, since I bought the Pro version thinking Pro would be better, but I can tell you that the automatic track splitting did not work at all for me , at least after 15-20 minutes of tweaking each time on three different albums. Don't waste your time.

Try Boom Box/Spin Doctor, which is also not great in automatically finding the breaks between songs, but at least the manual defining of each cut is very easy.

"Useful Utility"

July 18, 2007  |  By demars

 |  Version: Amadeus Pro 1.0.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I gave this product a rather harsh review a while back because some potentially useful advanced features were not documented at all, including a couple that I really wanted to use. That situation colored my ratings, but in retrospect that wasn't fair to the author and, more importantly, to users looking for a sound editing utility, since this might actually be the best choice for a lot of people.

The basic interactive sound editing features work well and the program is quite stable; unlike some other applications I've used in the same class, this one has never mangled my data.

This is the sort of utility you want to have available even if you already have a much more powerful sound track editor at your disposal (sort of like it is handy to have GraphicConverter around even if you also have Photoshop) because it is more straighforward to use this for simple editing jobs.

Unfortunately, although this application has capabilities well beyond simple visual cut and paste, the manual simply blows off documenting many of these features. In some cases documentation in the manual could be considered optional if there were even clearly explanatory tooltips in the dialogs, or some sort of online help available that documented these functions, but even this is missing.

If a future version of the program includes adequate documentation of these functions, I would definitely give it five stars. As it is, I equivocate between three and four but since I was overly stingy before, I'll give it four.

"HOG!"

July 14, 2007  |  By luigi193

 |  Version: Amadeus Pro 1.0.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have a decent computer. 1.83 core duo macbook 2 gigs ram. I had 3 programs open, and I noticed that my memory and CPU monitors were maxed and the fans were going full speed. I wasn't doing ANYTHING in the program. It was just sitting. I open up activity monitor for a more detailed look then my menu bar stat program could give, and it said it was using 192% if my processor (it may not sound like it makes sence, but remember 2 cores, 200% total) and 80% of my memory and 1.7 gigs of virtual memory! Dreamweaver was open and it wasn't using a fraction! I never had this problem in amadeus 2, just the pro version. AND I WASN'T EVEN DOING ANY EDITING! This may not be a common problem, but it is a big one...so i can't really recomend this program, armadeus II does the job.
