"The best for 2 main reasons"

October 31, 2011  |  By caponsacchi

 |  Version: Sound Studio 3.6.1

Pros

1. Sound Studio offers the most readable, editable wave patterns of any recording program I've encountered for the Mac. Roxio's Spin Doctor is colorful but useless.

2. The timer is a feature I use regularly, setting the computer to record an FM program each week for a period of 2 hours 4 minutes. I couldn't do this in Spin Doctor.

Cons

Not always intuitive, and the instruction manual is far from complete. Even achieving a constant gain level can be a challenge. Also, I think Spin Doctor has it beat when it comes to digitizing LP recordings.

Summary

I've tried 5-6 different programs. Some highly touted ones have a tiny user face that's far from inviting or practical. Others are too complicated (Garageband, Audible). And Toast keeps rising in price while coming up more short every year. The Roxio support remains non-existent. What remains to be seen is how favorably Sound Studio 4 compares with Sound Studio 3, since I've noticed some erratic behavior when using 3 with Lion.

"Great interface, decent functionality."

March 16, 2011  |  By ThomasHarte

 |  Version: Sound Studio 3.6.1

Pros

Fast, attractive, simple.

Cons

None really; perhaps could do with an in-app comparison of different qualities of MP3 ala the 'save for web' feature found in a lot of art programs, but that's about it.

Summary

Worth getting.

"still buggy, but best audio editing app around"

July 22, 2010  |  By patddfan88

 |  Version: Sound Studio 3.6.1

Pros

simple, edits MP3s, crashes a lot less than prior versions, and cheap

Cons

has a few bugs, no support for ID3s or ID4s, and doesn't have MP3 support built in

Summary

i love it because it gets the job done, and its very simple.

"Outstanding app"

July 06, 2010  |  By dkris

 |  Version: Sound Studio 3.6.1

Pros

The basic functions are very intiutive, the learning curve is quick. In addition, there are plenty of more advanced functions for those users who need a more extensive program. Supports a wide variety of file types.

Cons

Excellent for converting old vinyl to digital, converting albums into individual tracks is not as automated as some other WAVE editors. However those apps have a high error rate for the automated function, best to use Sound Studio.

Summary

If you do any audio editing, from basic to advanced, this application should be part of your tool kit.

"A very good audio editing program"

October 01, 2009  |  By johnforse

 |  Version: Sound Studio 3.6

Pros

It's use is intuitive, and results and flexibility are excellent. It enables you to take in a whole tape other audio source from line-in, edit the quality in many ways, then split it into named tracks and save as mp3 files of specified qualit.

Cons

Nothing at all

"Great program but needs .mp3 capability"

August 10, 2005  |  By garethjordan

 |  Version: Sound Studio 2.2.4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have used Sound Studio for a long time now and find the interface intuitive and much easier to use than Amadeus. However, Amadeus has mp3 facility when exporting the sound - why can't Sound Studio have this? So at present I use both - but once Sound Studio gets mp3 support - it will be the winner - I hope the author reads these comments!!

"promising"

July 28, 2005  |  By trance

 |  Version: Sound Studio 2.2.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
It is slower in opening and working with files than Amadeus, and like others have mentioned can not export to mp3 or m4a, as amadeus can plus it also does not support any plug-ins.
However the filters work well and the interface is somewhat nicer than Amadeus, so if the speed and the plugin support get fixed it will be excellent.
