audio recording and editing app recommendations for mac?
Interesting thoughts on this topic here. For the past months I've tried to find a way to make audio like I used to do with Goldwave. I've now find the workflow that works great for me for the most part. I record and edit my file in Amadeus Pro, since I bought that back in 2011, where it was the only option in the Amadeus-world. :) I then set markers while I am recording, so I don't need to listen to the file again, but I can easily jump to the points, where I made a mistake, or where I need to do an edit. I do my edit, and normalize it. Now, if I want to reduce silence or noise reduction I use Audacity to this job, because these options aren't quite as good in Amadeus Pro... From my point of view. If I have to mix background music in I will also use Audacity. At some point I thought changing to Audacity, but here is why I didn't do that: See, Audacity can not do this marker-stuff that Amadeus can do. The result of this is that you can not make markers while recording. You can do this, but it is not accessible, as I understand it. Audacity has this thing called labels. Labels can do the same as markers, but again, not accessible on the Mac yet... And another thing: If you have any external recorder like the Zoom-recorders you can put markers in your files while recording. These markers are handy when you go to your computer to edit your audio... But here is the issue (again): Audacity doesn't support markers, at least for now, and therefor you have to make notes about where to edit in the recording. For me this method works great. I am now trying to set up a way to record two files at the same time in Audio Hijack, so I can edit them inside Amadeus Pro and skip Soundflower. John Hiss: If you have any good information on how to use Audacity on the Mac I will love to hear it. Best regards Thomas
