SoundByte overview

SoundByte is a computerized cart machine for the Mac. It is very similar to the so-called cart machines used at radio stations in the past. Each recording - a jingle, advertisement, etc, was on a cartridge, which could be quickly selected and played.

Sound Byte brings the cart machine to the computer age. You can assign select up to 75 recordings per rack, and assign each to a button. Clicking on a button plays that recording. Multiple recordings can be played at the same time.

The quoted price is that of SoundByte. Three versions are available:

  • Sound Byte Lite supports a single rack of carts, or up to 75 recordings total. The registration fee is only $39.
  • Sound Byte supports five racks of carts, or up to 375 recordings total. The registration fee is only $79.
  • Sound Byte Pro supports fifty racks of carts, or up to 3750 recordings total. The registration fee is only $149.

What’s new in version 4.7.6

Updated on Dec 29 2016

Version 4.7.6:
  • Added the ability to change the racks menu order (Organize Racks)
  • [Bug fix] The menu would disappear after archiving/unarchiving racks under Windows

Downloaded the Lite version to give it a trial. NEEDS POLISH! Aliased icon and a few peculiarities in the UI. Hard to test it out when the trial comes with no actual sounds. At least 1 rack's worth of small sound effect clips would help greatly. While i might have use for this, i don't currently have a huge library of sound snips lying around to test it out with so i went scouring my drives and within games and found a few AIF's, but mostly .OGGs or other formats it won't play. Nags to purchase the full version come often and are accompanied by a system alert sound.

I wish that I could afford this, even at the discount price it is too much for me. Maybe I will win a copy after all I am disabled and cannot work.

ok, i'll download and try it out. but i cringe at the idea of buying something that limits me to 75 recordings (or 5 or 50 times that).

interesting tool for podcasters, not sure how well it would work for DJs - you'd still need external mixing

This app is just what I need after ditching the horribly unstable Ubercaster. However, this SoundByte is a bit overpriced IMHO, and lacks (apparantly, please prove me wrong) features like looping individual sounds (a breakbeat f.e.) and the interface aesthetically leaves a lot to be desired. I also need to set in and out cue points for the individual audio files...

I work at a radio station, and all our music and commercials are on a computerized system that costs many thousands of dollars. So for real broadcast work, this has no practical application. For the home user, I still can't figure out what this does for $39.95 that I can't do with iTunes.

I had considered using software like this for ambienting role playing sessions. Might be useful to suggest say a creepy atmosphere or a relaxed, crickety night
