Amadeus Pro lets you use your Mac computer for any audio-related task, such as live audio recording, digitizing tapes and records, converting between a variety of sound formats, etc. Thanks to its outstanding direct-to-disk abilities and waveform caching, edits on arbitrarily large sounds (even beyond the usual 2GB limit) are performed at lightning speed. The handling of large sounds is furthermore facilitated by the extensive support of markers. Its outstanding sound repairing and denoising abilities make Amadeus Pro particularly suitable for transferring vinyl records on CD.

Painfully slow app. The screen refresh rate is below average to say the least. Try to zoom quickly and you know what I mean. Even on an i7 MBP its sooooo sloooow.
Even Audacity is free and has a smooth GUI.
If you want to use a good audio more...

I am a "Pro-sumer" I suppose for audio apps and so Amadeus Pro fits right into my needs and budget. The learning process for discovering the control functions and how to use them best requires some serious attention. The same could be said for any audio processing equipment or application. For Amadeus, I found that the difficulties seem to come when Overthink things rather than the opposite. Short of perfection, to me, finding that rings are easier than I thought is preferable to the other way round.

I have always found the app to be stable and reasonably fast, although I do not stress it as much as some others probably do.

One aspect of the app I had overlooked is the Batch Processor. You just select a series of actions you would like to take with parameters for them as needed. Then drop a file onto the window to confirm that it works as you hoped. Then, you drop a bunch of files there and it processes all of them. I used this to a 11.3 seconds of annoying bumper music and self promotion from then ends of over four hundred MP3 audio joke of the day files. You can save these batch files for later use. Brilliant stuff.

Does very well it's job as advertised! Transferring audio from vinyl / cassettes is a task that require some handy features that AP offers and is easy to use. No way to get satisfied with others, always is something missing.

Agreed. I really wanted to like Triumph and the other alternatives, but for transferring from vinyl or even recording, it's useless. If you need the feature set that Amadeus Pro has there is no other viable option.

Lightweight but powerful audio editor for everyday tasks.

This ones was a good audio editor. But other similar apps came a long and surpassed this by miles.
v2 brought jerky scrolling, slow handling of audio files, crashes, lockups when you use plugins, .. .. ..

I suggest trying Triumph and you never want to launch this flawed app again.

Avoid.

I use this program now since years and I never have had big issues. Maybe because I didn't work with very big audio files. It is very stable here on my iMac and I can use all my external inputs like a UA 30 from Roland and the Samson GTrack. Now I work with 10.9.1 on an iMac late 2012 and it is very fast here. I have other audio editors too but I prefer Amadeus because it is very easy to handle and has most features I need...

When converting a file with the "save as" feature and then see the stats, you'll see no clippings, but re-opening the converted file they may be thousands!
I suppose the stats are still using the original file though the converted file being displayed...
I wonder if its the same for any other graphic feature, is it referred to the original file, in such case?

If you want to use a good audio editor and want to pay for it, try Triumph.

I have a late 2009 27" iMac (Core i7.) I run it full screen and have not experienced any of the UI slowness you wrote about. I was just editing a 200MB file recorded at 24/96. I zoomed in and out instantaneously. Strange that on a 3.5 year old Mac, I would have no issues.

I have the same issue. Been complaining about it for years.

Just thought I'd bring to the attention of the MacUpdate staff, that version 2.1.2 of Amadeus pro is out: I'm not sure how long it's been out, but it was an update for my existing copy yesterday, and it's what is on the Developer's site, and the Mac App Store.

Just thought I'd let people know since we all get busy at times and things get overlooked sometimes :)

Good software. But the pricing & the upgrade policy are on par with Elgato's (stands for "ridiculous" at best).

Can't recommend this program anymore. I've been using it off and on for several years but the UI is the slowest of any program I've used. Click and drag a selection and watch your life pass you by as you wait and wait and wait for the window to scroll.

There are just so many little things wrong I deleted it out of frustration.
