Crashes and loses recordings
30% of the time Amadeus Lite crashes after I’ve recorded something and while I’m saving the recording to mp3. Have lost some critical recordings this way. A total waste of money. I’m back to using Audacity which is extremely reliable.
A great app, no bones about it.
I do voiceovers for a living. With Amadeus I am able to record using an extrenal mic, edit, and send the finished mp3 back to my employer.They email me the script, I email them the product, I only have to go there to get paid.Thanks Amadeus!
Beautiful Audio Editing App!
I have been using this program for years and it is so very useful for my audio editing. I’m a DJ and there are times I need to make certain tracks longer or shorter for my mixes. Not only can I edit clips with precision, but I can also change the pitch speed to make the song faster or slower. I also appreciate the various options for file saving as well. For all that you can do, and the overall simplicity of the functionality, this program is well worth the asking price in my opinion.
Hi. I'm back again to review this latest version of Amadeus Lite. I've had some time to play around with this audio editor, so I know quite a bit more about it than I knew the first time I reviewed it, and I am no less impressed. In fact, I would give this thing ten stars if I could. It's still just as VoiceOver compatible as it was the day I first bought it, which is completely awesome, and I found out exactly how well it records. I like to arrange songs on my keyboard and record them, but until I started using Amadeus to do that, my recordings all were crap. However, now, my music is CD quality thanks to this pretty dirt cheap audio editor. I am thoroughly impressed. Furthermore, I figured out that you can start with a sound and add more sounds to it. You could create radio dramas and the like with this thing, which is amazing. I've done several sound design projects with this audio editor just for fun, and they all came out so wonderfully that I'm starting to wonder if I could make a living doing audio editing, just with this app. After all, it's a lot of fun to use. I also love the fact that I can use Amadeus as a sound file converter for pretty much any format I need. That feature really comes in handy when I download huge mp3 files and desperately need to save on disc space. Converting them to AAC usually does the trick, and Amadeus is superb at this. The only thing I can't seem to figure out how to do with Amadeus is to mess with the channels in a sound file. I can convert a mono sound to play through both headphones, but other than this, I really can't do much right now in the way of deleting channels or panning or anything like that, at least, not with VoiceOver. Maybe I just need to play with the app a little more to figure that out. Also, I haven't yet tried to burn CD's with Amadeus, although I'm sure I can do it successfully. I just haven't had the need for that feature yet. Over all, I will say that I am still very impressed with Amadeus Lite, especially this version. The developers got rid of that terrible bug that was preventing the previous version from opening files under Snow Leopard, and I am very thankful for that. To the developers, you have created probably the best piece of audio editing software on the Mac platform. It surpasses Apple's programs like GarageBand in its ease of use and accessibility, and that's saying a lot. To anyone looking for a good, cheap audio editor, look no further. You can buy this with a 50 dollar iTunes gift card, and you'll be so glad you did. This is the best, probably the only audio editor you will ever need, so don't be on the fence. Just buy it. You'll thank me later.
Easy to use
Great for conversion, and making extremely quick and basic trimmed files
