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!

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.

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 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.

Can I get away with saying that someone is asleep at the switch here? I mean, versions come out like eggs out of chickens, with brand new bugs, while old bugs are fixed . . . sometimes. Hawke, you may be right about it being the same designer, but I think he may be on vacation. I'm happy with Audition 6.

I've got problems with 4.6.8 - 4.6.9. Once : Applying a plugin noise reducer on a selected part, it quite cancels this selected part instead of reduce noise. 4.6.10 little bit better but the same problem remain. I hope an update witch correct that.

I won't rate this. It was a great little tool before FeltTip. I downloaded 4.6.7 and nothing worked on it, plus it overwrote my old version. I was inadvertently charged two (2!) times for it. Yes, it was on the AppStore. Avoid that version. This version may work, but I managed to roll back to an earlier, more stable version using Time Machine. That's my 2 cents. Actually, that's my 60+ dollars, but I wasn't paying attention, I suppose. No blame. I don't however, believe that these new owners know terribly much about software. The interface was never great, but now . . . fail.

My experiences with Sound Studio are very good. Handling is fine and it has all the features (including support for AppleScript) I need for recording. Also support ist very helpful.

Sound Studio is awful! Really, it is painfully slow in UI updating, zooming is slow, it crash heavy and the GUI is insanely bad thought-out. I just cannot believe this app is marked as a a 'Hot App'. Its really not a good one. I highly recommend someone at MU does take a closer look at Triumph. Its way better!

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.
