Rogue Amoeba has released Fission 2.2.1 with a fix for incompatible ALAC files generated by non-Apple applications (such as doubleTwist’s AirPlay Recorder). The audio editor also improves the way that ringtones are saved for better compatibility, though Mac App Store users may experience duplicate files depending on iTunes import preferences. Rogue Amoeba now ensures that all of its apps offer the same bit rate options for consistency. Fission also does away with unnecessary gaps at the beginning of files when exporting FLAC or ALAC files and can now open GSM, MS IMA, QT IMA, and CAF formats. ($32 new from Rogue Amoeba with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 14.5 MB, release notes, 10.7+)
