Fission overview

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 version 2.8.5

  • Full Support for MacOS 14 (Sonoma). Fission now has full compatibility with MacOS 14 (Sonoma), with no known issues.
  • Fission will now launch and run as expected on MacOS 14.1.
  • It’s now possible to control-click in the “Name” and “Code” fields of the “License” window, making it possible to copy and paste in data.

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.
