No retinadisplay support. Restrictive usage of windows, no fullscreen support, not possible to maximize windows.
Good idea, but odd interface. An update in years and stability issues .
This is very poor for an app this price class:)))))))

Pure Vinyl Recorder is probably the best combination recorder-player - like a combo of Final Vinyl and Audirvana into a single app. BUT, if you need only an audiophile-grade PLAYER, then choose Pure Music. It's included in Pure Vinyl, but it's also available as a stand-alone for a hundred dollars less, at $129.00.

Unless you're also intending to be digitalizing vinyl, Pure Music, which forms part of Pure Vinyl, but which is available as a stand-alone, is all that you need, at the lower price of $129.00.

There's no reason to buy the full program, if you just want to play your already-digitalized music..

This is audiophile-grade software. And people who are computer-audiophiles will recognize this as a very reasonable price, for this kind of software.

*Features high resolution track editing support and parity with the Music Server features of Pure Music 1.74a*

Actually, PV now comes with ver. 1.74b of the Music Server (standalone aka Pure Music), some bugfixes including the first few seconds of a track being skipped if replayed from the beginning.

Adobe Soundbooth is a very strong audio product for all kinds of things. I've used it for well over a year and have been very impressed with its ability to remove turntable rumble and pops and ticks from vinyl LP albums.

Hidden among one of the worst web sites I've seen is a link to the price of $229. Professional-grade software should have a professional-grade web site. I worry when a company has to be so elusive about what the software costs. You'll have to decide if they're claimed improved sound quality is worth the price.

I'm not denying the calibre of this app, but the pricing is a joke.Try Golden Records instead;

It performs many of the same functions for a fraction of the price!

Golden Records is not reliable enough to use. I have frequently spent an hour recording one of my LPs only to have it crash or become unusable. One time I recorded a disc only to find that there were little skips in some of the songs where the software could not keep up with the incoming music.

I have used Audacity successfully. It does not automatically divide tracks, but that is a feature that is frequently inaccurate in other programs. Audacity has yielded stunning audio quality with no crashes or "do overs."

What makes this so special that it's $129? Just curious.

I have a turntable, receiver, and iMic attached to the receiver's tape out connection. Clicks and pops can be filtered with something like Audacity for free, if I ever desired. An iMic and phono preamp will cost you $60 or less if you're thrifty.

What exactly does this do? I don't get it.
