HairerSoft Releases New Version of Amadeus IIVisual waveform audio file editing and analyzing application (January 27, 2005)
HairerSoft today announces the release of Amadeus II v3.8, their premiere disk-based, Mp3 supporting, visual waveform audio file editing and analyzing application for the MacOS and MacOS X.
Amadeus II lets you use your Macintosh computer for many sound-related applications, such as live audio recording, digitizing tapes and records, sampling from any external source and for editing and analyzing Mp3, Ogg Vorbis, AIFF, FLAC, SoundDesigner II, QuickTime or WAVE files. Thanks to its powerful direct-to-disk abilities, one can easily and rapidly edit arbitrarily large sounds (even with sizes beyond the 2GB limit). The handling of large sounds is facilitated by the extensive support of markers. Its outstanding sound repairing and denoising abilities make Amadeus II particularly suitable for transferring vinyl records on CD.
New features of version 3.8 include:
- Completely redesigned sound window
- Support for the FLAC file format http://flac.sourceforge.net/
- New parametric equalizer specially designed for restoring old vinyl recordings
- The format for the time display is completely customizable
- Addition of an "Open recent" menu item
- Automatic version checking
- Full Unicode support
- Markers can be aligned to CD sector boundaries
- Support for scrolling wheel in the sound window (shift-scrolling to zoom in/out)
- Several bug fixes and many minor improvements to the user interface
Version 3.8 is available free of charge to all registered users of previous versions of Amadeus II.
Amadeus II is a US$30 shareware. It can be downloaded from http://www.hairersoft.com/AmadDownload.html and from all major Macintosh shareware archive sites. Amadeus II v3.8 is localized in English, French, German, and Italian.
