    "Sloppy, bug-ridden rip-off."

    January 1, 2012  |   By spartain


    Can't think of any - I really can't.


    Zoom is unstable;
    DC Offset facility doesn't work;
    DC Offset facility is not configurable.

    After discovering these two flaws I gave up.


    I downloaded the free version from another website to try out instead of my usual Magix Audio Editor v2, but within 15 minutes I found two bugs.

    Firstly, if you select and highlight a part of the wave, when you zoom in the highlight shifts along. That is sheer incompetence.

    Secondly, I found that the DC Offset correction facility doesn't work, and that ot's also not configurable.

    Such amateurism. And they expect people to pay for this junk? I think the developers should spend a bit more effort on such basic detail instead of stuffing their fat faces with Mars Bars.
