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.

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...

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 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.

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.

I wanted to work with a 5.1 clip from an xvid/avi file that I extracted the audio from with QT Pro giving me a mov/m4a file. Audacity, Sound Studio, WavePad, and TwistedWave would not open the file, at least not properly. Only Fission (v1!) and Amadeus Pro would open the file properly so that I could trim and boost it. I prefer Peak's interface but that is water under the bridge.

Update: After reading all the rave reviews for Wave Editor I decided to give it a try, but it would not open the file either.

I work daily with audio files. Mostly for mastering purposes. What I need is a user friendly interface, vst and au support and a smooth/fast working UI.
The latter is the big problem with Amadeus Pro. It is so d*mn slow working with. Just Rescale a window and you know what I mean. On a MBP Retina is so slow the hate for Amadeus grows with every second you work with it. I know MBP Retina have slower graphics but Wave Editor is very fast rescaling windows even on a Retina.

Also, it crashes very often when you want to process audio with VST plugins. Ozone5 for example, is plain unusable. One could say Ozone5 is buggy, well on Wave Editor and Ableton Live it never crashes.

For me Amadeus Pro is not useable. Its slow (at least on a state of the art MBP Retina) and crashes when working with VST plugins.

In the end I would say you should take a look at Wave Editor before buying Amadeau Pro. It has a steeper learning curve but works!

Aargl had trouble on 06 Aug 2013
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?

I found that the audio plugin in Library/Audio/Plug-ins/HAL/DVCPROHDAudio.plugin crashes Amadeus Pro as soon as it starts. Any idea to resolve that issue without removing the faulty plug-ins

This is a well-known issue and comes from a bug in this plug-in under Snow Leopard (it works fine under Leopard or Tiger). The only solution at the moment is to remove the faulty plug-in.

Bug with 1.4.4. I have a 90 minute .wav and I do Sound > Split According to Markers. I choose FLAC with level 8 compression. When I hit save a popup appears saying. This has never happened in any previous versions. Same thing happens when I try to Split to .wav.

An exception was raised

Looping playback doesn't seem to work in Leopard. It plays once, but repeat plays are silent even though the cursor is moving across the sound.
