Software publisher said the Apple Store will not let them offer upgrade pricing for earlier purchasers. All the same price no matter what. Just buy it again and give us some dinero. Really? Try Amadeus. No upgrade / update problems there and it works just fine.

I can't write a proper review, as Amadeus is still my favourite, but there's one function that I can't find anywhere else: the frequency generator by note (i.e. choosing a note on a keyboard). Great!

Doesn't open flac. Splash screen says Sound Studio can't open files in Free Lossless Audio Codec-Format.

Sound Studio (v. 4.8.14) opens .flac files on my system. For many years, it's been my go-to app -- especially for mission-critical projects.

I've been using this app for years and it continues to work well for my needs, as a lightweight editor. I prefer the simple interface in Sound Studio to the competition, which at times fails to use musical metaphors in their UI, needlessly overcomplicating the user experience.

I have been using Sound Studio for ages and it still is the best lightweight but powerful sound editor out there!

What happened to 'change bit rate' in the pull down menu? Now Sample rate is duplicated-one on the interface and one in the pull down menu where CBR used to be

I have used this program since version 1 and never had a problem. As of update 4.7.7 I am unable to download the program from MacUpdate or the Sound Studio site. I have contacted the developer with out a positive solution. Is any one else having problems downloading UpDate 4.7.7 ?

I just tried it and it seems to download fine. Seems that it got fixed.

I just tried to download the update from the Felt Tip site and it stopped at 10.8 meg. This is the same point it stopped yesterday and the multiple other times I tried to download the update.. What kind of system are you using. I am running OS X 10.10.1 and DSL. All my software is up to date. I have the fire wall set and use Little Snitch. No virus software.

I really like the interface and simplicity of what I see so far. But I have three issues, one of which would be a deal breaker for me. I use this kind of software primarily to put together radio segments such as interviews and arts reporting. Here are the three things I don't see yet, compared with Audacity:

1. There's no way to import a sound file into an already open project; you must open a separate project, then cut and paste into it.

2. No Auto Duck filter.

3. (This is the deal-breaker for me.) There is no easy way to fade up a portion of a file from a non-silent point. You can use Fade Out Special to fade down to a less than 100% volume, but I don't see how you can use that to fade up from a given volume to greater than 100% of your starting sound volume.
