I searched for a tool that would quickly allow me to measure the time distance between two events in a recorded sound. First I downloaded WaveJelly, which required me to register despite it being free -> I tossed it. Then tried Audacity, whose downloaded dmg file would not mount (open). Finally, I tried this one, which let me get to what I needed. Still, even this program has some annoyances in its usability:
It appears not to follow the most simple Mac UI guidelines, such as:
- Cannot drop a audio file onto the app to open the file.
- Cannot create a selection by first positioning the cursor at one end, then using a Shift-Click to define the other end.
- Once a selection has been made, one cannot simply drag either border to extend the selection, despite the cursor shape suggestion such an action.
- Version information in the Finder's "Info" window is wrong - it doesn't list the actual version number. Makes it difficult for reporting problems, comparing app version, etc.
Dear programmer, please make an effort to follow common Mac guidelines better, and we may have a winner. ;)
Anyways, thanks for making it available for free.
