Fission for Mac

04 September 2021

Streamlined audio editor.

What is Fission for Mac

Fission can crop and trim audio, paste in or join files, or just rapidly split one long file into many. It's streamlined for fast editing. Plus, it works without the quality loss caused by other editors, so you can get perfect quality audio even when editing MP3 and AAC files.

If you need to convert formats, Fission can do that too! You can rapidly export or batch convert files to the MP3, AAC, Apple Lossless, FLAC, AIFF, and WAV formats.

Key Features:
  • Edit MP3, AAC, Apple Lossless, and AIFF files with no quality loss
  • Quickly split a long audio file into smaller files
  • Remove unwanted content, such as commercials, from your audio file
  • Re-arrange audio in a single file, copy audio from one file to another, or merge with a quick drag and drop
  • Create great-sounding MP3 or AAC ringtones for your cell phone.

What's new in Fission

Version 2.7.1:
  • Fission now has initial compatibility with the forthcoming MacOS 12 (Monterey).
  • Fission's updating code has been overhauled and improved. It is now based on Sparkle 1.26.0, with several customizations.
  • Fission's manual is now provided online, rather than being built in to the application. The application's “Help” menu has also been modified and streamlined, to get you assistance as quickly as possible.
  • Many debugging improvements have been made.
  • Fission's Start window has been made more intelligent. The Cmd-0 shortcut will now open the window if its closed, close it if it's open and in the foreground, or pull it forward if it's already open but in the background.
  • Support for some WAV codecs (pcm_s24le) has been improved.
  • Many improvements have been made to Fission's waveform display, to prevent issues where it could appear incorrectly.
  • Fission will no longer incorrectly convert PNG artwork to JPG on MacOS 11 (Big Sur).
  • Fission now works around a performance issue with the QuickLook feature in MacOS that could prevent a preview of chapterized audio files.
  • Fission now better handle disk errors, malformed recordings, and more.
  • When Fission is unlocked by entering a valid license key, in addition to displaying an animation, it will now play a brief celebratory sound for visually impaired users.
  • The Quick Tour now properly supports the new “Speak items under the pointer” setting in MacOS 11 (Big Sur).
  • Improvements have been made for the Quick Tour to present better on small resolutions, using scrollbars to make all content accessible.
  • Due to breaking changes in their API, the “Share to SoundCloud” integration has been removed from Fission.
  • It's now possible to access several relevant menu items while the initial Quick Tour is open.
  • The “Purchase” button in the License window now uses a better link to get to the Buy page.
  • The Update window's width has been tweaked, to handle longer titles.
  • Fission now features a new “Check for test releases” hidden preference. When active, you may receive notice of pre-release versions of the software, ahead of its wide release. If you're interested to test updates, you can turn this option on in the Debugging window (accessible by holding option while viewing the “Help” menu, then selecting “Quit and Relaunch for Debugging”).
  • Fission Is Now Available Exclusively via RogueAmoeba.com - As of version 2.7.1, Fission is distributed exclusively via direct download and purchase from our site. It has been removed from the Mac App Store.

Took A YEAR to fix the 'waveform drawing' UI bug introduced in 2.5.0 released Oct 2019 and not resolved until version 2.6.0 in Oct 2020. During that time, Fission was USELESS for editing, as the waveform would constantly display as a FLAT line, forcing user to constantly change magnification or resize the windows to force display to update. I was forced to move on and started using Amadeus and Audacity. Falling back to an earlier version of Fission was not option because prior versions did not support Catalina. These recent improvements since 2.6.0 have not won me back or restored my confidence in their development process. If the company wishes to win me back as a user they will need to do more than pretend like 'business as usual' and acknowledge what happened during that YEAR of no updates and no fixing of a show-stopper bugs.

I attempted to download Fission but got some kind of php file. When I double clicked that file, I got a message saying Xcode needed to install something. This link might be a scam.

To compress a FLAC file size, a professional FLAC compressor - Avdshare Video Converter is recommended to use.

I really appreciate simple apps which aren't full of bloatware. Fission is such an app—perfect for editing and batch converting for the non-professional (and maybe pros too!?) I'm sure there are audio editing apps with lots more features, but the simplicity of Fission is what wins my praise
