Expand Finder Columns Quickly

DealBITS Drawing: Win a Copy of Sound Studio 3

Send Article to a Friend

The Mac has numerous audio recording and editing programs, but one long-time standout has been Sound Studio 3, created by Felt Tip Software and published by Freeverse. Sound Studio lets you capture audio by recording a live performance, digitizing from an analog source like an LP, or using any other Core Audio-based device like a USB microphone. Once captured, you can use Sound Studio's easy-to-use tools for editing and manipulating your audio, including the capability to apply numerous built-in and Audio Unit filters, analyze the audio content, and even generate tones and noise from scratch. The program can import and export common audio formats, and, for those who find themselves applying filters or adding intro and outro audio to numerous files, Sound Studio supports AppleScript and Automator.

In this week's DealBITS drawing, you can enter to win one of two copies of Sound Studio 3. Entrants who aren't among our lucky winners will receive a discount on Sound Studio 3, so be sure to enter at the DealBITS page.
