Amadeus Pro: the Full-Featured Audio Editor

If you’re running a startup and need an audio editor, check out Amadeus Pro.  Nothing beats having a Swiss Army Knife of sound tools when you need them.  We’ve reviewed other audio editors in the past, but none of them has as many features as Amadeus Pro.  It does just about everything you can think of, including providing support for a variety of Audio Units and VST plugins.

To start with, Amadeus Pro is a fully featured multitrack editor. Each track can have its volume and panning adjusted independently from the others. Each track can be split into multiple audio clips that can easily be dragged independently of each other. In addition, Audio Units can be applied to individual tracks in real-time without requiring any destructive editing.

Amadeus Pro supports batch editing, which makes life much easier.  If there’s a collection of files that you wanted to convert to Mp3, but you first wanted to normalize them and make them fade in and out nicely, you can do it with a few clicks.  The powerful batch processor allows you not only to convert large numbers of files between any of the supported formats, but you can also instruct Amadeus Pro to apply any sequence of sound effects to the batch.  Any professional audio designer will appreciate this.

A handy repair centre allows you to find and to repair cracks with a simple click of the mouse. Furthermore, Amadeus Pro’s powerful denoising functions allow you to easily get rid of that annoying hiss on your old tape recordings or of that 50Hz hum picked up by a badly insulated microphone.

Sound effects
