Shorten X for Mac

By Douglas Hornig Free

Developer's Description

Shorten is a utility developed by Tony Robinson and SoftSound Limited www.softsound.com to convert audio files to and from a compressed format. Compression of about 50% is typical. MP3 compression is usually much greater, but unlike MP3 files, shortened files result in no loss of fidelity.

Shorten for Macintosh has a graphical user interface and also contains the md5sum checksum utility which can be used to verify file integrity.

What's new in version 1.1a4

Converted to Carbon so Shorten will run natively on MacOS X. Other than that the a4 release has the same functionality as the a3 release so the latest version for PPC and 68K is still a3.
