Multitrack sound recorder/editor with MP3 support.

Overview

Amadeus Pro lets you use your Mac for any audio-related task, such as live audio recording, digitizing tapes and records, converting between a variety of sound formats, etc. Thanks to its outstanding direct-to-disk abilities and waveform caching, edits on arbitrarily large sounds (even beyond the usual 2GB limit) are performed at lightning speed. The handling of large sounds is furthermore facilitated by the extensive support of markers. Its outstanding sound repairing and denoising abilities make Amadeus Pro particularly suitable for transferring vinyl records on CD.

Features:
  • Simple and elegant OS X-like user interface
  • Multitrack editing an recording.
  • Batch processing and conversion.
  • Sound denoising and repairing.
  • Supports a variety of sound formats, including AIFF, Multichannel Wave, MP3, MP4, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, SoundDesigner II, QuickTime, Apple CAF, etc.
  • Support for VST and Audio Unit plug-ins.
  • A "favourite actions" palette allows to have your most commonly used effects only a mouse click away.
  • A wide range of powerful audio analysis tools.
  • Audio CDs with CD-TEXT data can be burned directly from within Amadeus Pro.

Paid $30 for Amadeus II, then I paid $25 to upgrade to Amadeus Pro and now I am supposed to pay another $40 to upgrade? Not happening. And this new icon is horrendous.

I've been remiss in not leaving a review of this software which I've owned for over a decade now. Some people complain that the price is too high for what Amadeus Pro can do. As someone who has owned a number of audio processing software, I can say that I respectively disagree. Amadeus Pro does things quicker and easier then any of the other titles I've owned. The batch processing functions and ability to customize those processes alone are well worth the added cost, especially if you're a person like me who works with dozens and even sometimes hundreds of files! I use it not only on a daily basis, but multiple times every day and have my workflow with it down pat. I also own the developers wonderfully powerful and oh so useful app "Click Repair" for when I digitized my extensive library of vinyl back in the day and still occasionally use it. It works simply and accurately and is a great compliment to Amadeus Pro. Top all this off with a developer who is responsive, helpful and consistent and you have an application and back end that is WELL WORTH the cost!

Unless you want to record many tracks and use loops, you do not need a bigger application than Amadeus. It is wonderful for editing audio, with lots of features. I use it almost daily!

Pro? This tool is marking itself as ‘pro’ but cannot even do the VST or AU plugins in real-time. You need to click on ‘apply’. I kid you not !! Also, using the zoom slider is very slow, even on a my powerful Mac Pro. Cutting/pasting part is cumbersome too. Even for free this audio editor lacks basic needs. Avoid at all cost and take look at good audio editors like Wavelab or Triumph. They offer both real-time effects, decent editing, customization UI and many more.

Hi, I'm sorry to hear about your experience. AU plugins can be applied in real-time: click on the "gears" button at the top right of the track and then on "+" to add real-time plugins. Regarding the zoom slider, there unfortunately appears to be a bug in Mojave which prevents Amadeus from taking advantage of Metal on some (mostly older) hardware combinations, which appears to include the old generation Mac Pro. It should work fine on High Sierra and also appears to be fixed in the previews of Catalina.

This is by far the best multitrack audio editor available at this price point, and completely kicks the crap out of that hunk of garbage Audacity (more than 15 years of development and its still sub-par). The new dark mode support is nice but the thing I like about this program is that it gets out of my way and lets me edit audio quickly and efficiently.

The one complaint I have is that you need to remember that two-finger scrolling from the right EDGE of the trackpad brings up Notification Center, so scroll left from further in on the right side of the trackpad to avoid that. Easily worked around, but until you change the Notification Center gesture, you'll occasionally see it when you didn't intend to.

Did I mention it works beautifully with VST and AU plugins and even has a 32-bit mode (still) for working with older plug-ins? Or how it exactly hits the target of being easy-to-use (like Fission) yet more powerful, but not complicated like [name any expensive DAW]? Or that the developer is very responsive both on his forum and in email? Best money I've ever spent on an audio editing tool. You can buy it from the Mac App Store or directly from the developer, your choice.

"That hunk of garbage Audacity" is given away by the developers at no cost to the user. You get what you pay for: $0.00 vs. $60.00.

hwgray: yes, Audacity is free -- and is better than absolutely nothing (but only just). But MY TIME is valuable too -- so Audacity, with its not-infrequent crashing and quirky behaviour and general ugly UI -- has a cost. Maybe your time isn't worth $60, but I need an audio editor every week (and sometimes more than once a week), and so i invest in developers that are committed to a) producing a high-quality product and b) actively support it. Amadeus has that, Audacity does not. I'm not one of those people who tried Audacity once for five minutes -- I have a copy and keep it current, and every major new version I open the new version up and see if it can handle the level of work I do. For the past 15 years, the answer continues to be either "not at all" or "nowhere near as well as Amadeus," depending on how crash-prone a particular update is.

VALUE trumps COST for anyone doing anything that even aspires to be professional quality.

The version 2.5 has localization problems (the menus are in English) and an error (bad url) on updating. This on Mac OS 10.13.6 High Sierra. I hope they are fixed as soon as possible. Everything else is OK

It may have some nice features but it has a terrible GUI that very slow updating. Scrolling, zooming and cutting the waves is very chunky and slow. You literately see it redrawing. I have a new MBPr i7 6 cores and very fast GPU. This should be 60fps, sadly it doesn't even get to 5fps. It has always been the case from v1 and still is with v2.5 It can be done the good wxay like Triumpg and Audacity (free). Two similar apps that are way ahead of this defunct app. Avoid ...

From what you've described, you have a better MBP that I have. My MBP is from late 2013, i7 4 cores, 16 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M GPU, 2 GB VRAM. I see none of the redrawing/frame rate/lag problems you're having. Therefore, I can't agree. I also don't understand why you call the app 'defunct'. That's entirely unfair considering the developer's constant improvements and updates.

As for alternative apps: Audacity is well worth consideration. I have a copy installed. But for my personal uses, I end up finding Amadeus Pro much easier to use with superior features. There are several similar, well-rated alternative apps, including Fission and Sound Studio, both of which I've used and dropped in favor of Amadeus Pro. I've never used Triumph, but it looks to be a more professional oriented application at $79 to Amadeus. I'm going to look it over!

I have downloaded the Amadeus Pro App and it is in my Applications folder. Each time I use it I have to go into the Applications folder to open it. It then comes up on my desktop but when I finish it and close it the App disappears and there is no longer an icon on the desktop. A message also comes up that it quit unexpectedly. Is there anything I can do to stop this from happening? Thank you.

I'm extremely pleased that I upgraded. Amadeus Pro never lets me down and the frequent updates are very much appreciated. This is THE audio editing app for Mac at this time for those who don't need to use a pro audio studio. Thanks to the developer!

I've only used Audacity but found it was kind of confusing for a novice audio recorder like myself. Would I be able to understand this app a little better? I'm just recording one instrument and vocals. Would it be worth it to spend $60 on this or maybe at least $25 on the Amadeus Lite?

@Marllo-R: For what you want to do, you'll find it fairly easy to do. I'd download Amadeus Lite and play around with it to see if you like it.. Decide from there. Amadeus still has a few obscure and clunky aspects. But for simple recording of two tracks (mono or stereo) you'll like it IMHO.
