Sound Studio 2.0, an update to the audio editing and recording app for Mac OS X, is available for immediate download from Felt Tip Software.
Sound Studio includes several filters, editing tools and support for a variety of audio file formats. You can use it to digitize tapes and vinyl records to make CDs; record live performances and interviews; edit out dead air, glitches and mistakes in recordings; create new sounds and loops; and apply any of 19 effects, including Reverb, Chorus and EQ.
Lucius Kwok of Felt Tip Software said version 2.0 has new effects, including Chorus, Flanger, Reverb, Compressor, Expander, DC Offset and Interpolate. There are also new filters: Graphic EQ with 3, 10 and 30-band controls, High Pass and Low Pass.
A new “mix” feature lets you mix audio on the clipboard with audio in a file — with level controls for each source. Sound Studio 2.0 also adds the ability to save presets for most filters and a new sound recording and playback engine. Software-based play-through lets you hear what you’re recording. There are other new features, as well.
Since it’s Carbonized, you can run Sound Studio on Mac OS 8.1 through 9.x (with the CarbonLib extensions installed). Note that some newer Macs may require a USB audio input device for recording. Sound Studio costs US$49.99 for a single-user license. Upgrades from previous versions of Sound Studio 2.0 are $24.99.
