wave editing in OS X

January 24, 2009 | 2:39 am

hi,

i’m just switching over to mac (with the crash of my old hard drive) and that means upgrading to max 5!

also, though, i’m in need of wave editing capabilities. i’m used to using cool edit pro/adobe audition. can anyone recommend a program for mac that has similar functionality? what are people using?

thanks,

There’s a decent amount within Max via the waveform~ object, which IMO is a great UI element on par with those used in any DAW program. For more detailed editing, other programs provide lots of additional stuff. I use Audition and love it; on mac or PC you can also use the free Audacity, which does a ton for a freebie. Even GarageBand will let you do a fair amount, but is better as a multitracker for audio and MIDI rather than detailed audio editing. Check out Audacity and you should be up and running in no time.

I’m a big fan of Sound Studio 3
( http://www.freeverse.com/apps/app/?id=5012 ) for my simple audio editing needs. I use Pro Tools LE for the more intense stuff, but sound studio is a wonderful little 2-track editor.

I’d recommend Wave Editor (I like audiofile engineering’s other stuff, and they’re good people) but something about the UI rubs me the wrong way.

Well as mentioned earlier Audacity is quiet a treat !!!

I did upgrade to logic 8 when it came out and included was soundtrack pro 2 which has great capabilities as an editor;

Have a look to Sound Studio. It’s really simple, and efficient. It
does not have thousand of fancy features but for simple editing that’s
my favorite.

Hi,

Amadeus II is a good, non expensive choice : http://

If you need multi-track, use the pro version.
