Amadeus Pro 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.

2.6 was the last version that correctly show the progress of encoding. Everything after that is broken in that the encoding subprocess isn't reporting back progress to the GUI so you don't know when your audio file will be done encoding. That's OK for small files, but if something is 60+ minutes, you're better off using another editor like Audacity. I've emailed the developer and he still hasn't fixed it so I guess it's time to look for alternatives.

I have used a number of sound editors from MacRecorder, Sound Tools, Pro Tools to Cubasis and Wavelab. Today I use Amadeus, Spectralab and Wavelab since they have some unique features that I need, but the complexity and user (un)friendliness of Wavelab requires months of training, while Amadeus only requires an hour. I have seen no other product that can easily present harmonics in a spectrum, which is extremely useful in some sound analysis. If you want to make real time music recordings there may be other software that is better suited, but for post recording and analyzing this product has some amazing capabilities. And unlike most other companies - if you have a suggestion for improvement or a bug report you get prompt answers. And when recording, I always want the "original" clean sound. Filtering and other "destructive" editing is better done afterwards and is often a bad substitute for a good recording. I you want something cheaper I suggest Audacity which is free.

I had an Amadeus license for years but I downloaded a trial of DSP-Quattro, many say a more capable audio editor, and eventually purchased it over Amadeus Pro.

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.

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.

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 ...

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 bought his application a month ago. I already had used version 1 in the past but the new features of the latest version are simply mind boggling . Amadeus Pro is very robust and has never crashed on me even when I edit huge audio files. It has nearly all the functions I need and its intuitive interface makes the learning curve very smooth. All its main commands can be mastered in a matter of hours. Mind you, it also comes with a complete manual that helps comprehending more complicated functions easily. After a month of intense use I have come to the conclusion that it’s exactly the application I was looking for and is worth every cent I paid for it. Can’t recommend it enough.

I can't imagine how anyone who wants to save time and work efficiently would not turn to Amadeus Pro first. Unless you enjoy futzing around or require loads of complicated (for many of us) options, this app has served me well, along with other colleagues in broadcasting, almost since it's first release. Top marks for steady growth and smooth operation.

I've been using ProTools for about 15 years now, so I usually don't need those small editors, but sometimes it's nice to check or try something without having to fire up the big software.
I've tried other editors such as Sound Studio and Fission and, though they basically do the same thing, who knows why, when I need to do something a bit more tricky, I can't find it anywhere else than in Amadeus!
Last example: I needed to play 2 files together to check wether they were masterings from the same source or 2 different recording sessions. It was only in Amadeus that I could open one file, create a new stereo track, import the second file by drag and drop, move it to be in sync and play to hear they were exactly phase-synced.
I regularly try the competitors, but I always find Amadeus easier and quite perfect.
