"to expensive for amount of Features"

November 18, 2005  |  By hugels

 |  Version: Cacophony 1.3.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
As I am looking for a basic Sound editor, I thought at this price I should get a well designed piece of Software.

But I am honestly disapointed. Compared to Amadeus II (30$) it is way to expensive (yes I know you can use it free as it is Shareware).
Off_Topic: Even look at "MP3 Trimmer" (11$) which is really easy to use (intuitive workflows)

I did open a short m4a (AAC) file and changed the waveform's looking by changing the dropdown menu (left on the bottom) to "1/128" or "1/256" or 1/xxx while playing and it did sound ugly. ;-(

Why is there no view/window of the whole file beside the main zoom-in window (my file was only 1 min. of length)?

Maybee it has really good encoding technology behind the GUI - but I doubt that I'll ever gonna know this. The user Interface does just not satisfy me.

"Caco, a gogo"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I find Cacophony to be great with minor tweaks, adding extra verses, and taking little flaws out of music. There are plenty of features, and though there aare many sliders, that adds to the ease of use. I'd say it's not a complex PRO program, but a very useful, normal-person oriented piece of equipment.

"Extremely slow"

 |  Version: Cacophony 1.3.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Too much hard disk usage for cache files makes it unusable with typical aiff files from music CDs. Desperately slow on my Titanium PB 400 MHz/ 256 MB RAM.

"Needs more features"

May 09, 2003  |  By Xeater

 |  Version: Cacophony 1.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
A very nice editor in its own right. I really like the GUI design, very clean and ergonomic. The display features are excellent. Unfortunately, when one gets to the real meat of the editor, it falls flat. No disk based editing. No audio plug-in support (either VST or component would be sweet!). And a limited repertoire of built-in audio effects. For now I recommend Amadaeus II--but I'll keep an eye on cacophony. In a perfect world I'd slap the GUI of Cacophony onto Amadaeus II and be done with it!
