Related: , , , , Posted in news on Sep 17, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Audiofile Engineering has announced Loop Editor 2, an update to the simple loop editing tool for Mac OS X.

Audiofile Engineering Loop Editor 2

Loop Editor is the perfect replacement for Apple Loops Utility. It supports all audio file formats that support loop points: AIFF Apple Loops, compressed & uncompressed CAF (AIFF, AAC & Apple Lossless) Apple Loops, AIFF, WAV, W64 and ACID. Additionally, Loop Editor supports forward, forward-backward, and backward looping. Loop Editor is one of the only applications available which supports sustain and release loops.

Loop Editor 2 allows you to view, add, edit and export Slices. It also supports advanced property editing capabilities such as the “Genre” and “Descriptors” properties for Apple Loops files. For those of you that work with Propellerhead Reason and ReCycle, we have included our ReCycle Converter tool which converts ReCycle REX & RX2 files for use in Loop Editor.

The most important addition to Loop Editor 2 is full support for AppleScript. AppleScript makes Loop Editor even more powerful 
by allowing you to automate complex workflows and simplify the process of working with large numbers of files.

Loop Editor 2 for Mac is available for purchase for $29.99 USD for a limited time (regular $49.99 USD).

Audiofile Engineering launches Triumph audio editing application

Audiofile Engineering has announced Triumph, the long awaited sequel to their popular Wave Editor audio editing application.

Audiofile Engineering Triumph
Available as an app for Mac OS X, Audiofile has redefined audio editing with Triumph as an “audio designer”, sporting a newly redesigned interface and a host of new features and functionality.

Triumph is much more than just a new version of Wave Editor, which is also the reason for the new name. “Our goal is to always be on the cutting edge of technology and interface design. We completely rewrote Wave Editor. We rethought everything, not only how to improve on what we built in Wave Editor, but how we could bring the concept of an audio editor forward”, says Matthew Foust, founder of Audiofile Engineering, “Triumph takes full advantage of all of the latest technologies Mac OS X has to offer.”

Musicians and audio professionals who are already fans of Audiofile Engineering’s Wave Editor will be delighted in seeing the new Triumph’s single window and full screen support, experiencing the completely rewritten audio system and the significantly improved arrangement & mastering features, all fully 64-bit.

Less guess work and more speed
Triumph features a unique and patented method for editing audio: Layers. It’s similar to image editing in technique, but is specifically tailored for audio. The Layers method is an innovative way to create combinations of sounds. It saves time by keeping everything live and editable until the final product and results in less guesswork and more speed.

Spacious, natural sounds thanks to FHX™
The new FHX™ effect in Triumph solves a number of the issues often associated with listening to music on headphones. FHX creates a more spacious, natural sound stage over headphones — enabling an exceptional listening experience that will truly inspire and engage.

Audiofile Engineering has teamed up with iZotope and now includes iZotope Restore & Restoration as well as the advanced iZotope MBIT+ and 64-bit SRC options for disc burning in Triumph.

Triumph features

  • Redesigned Meters inspired by the beautiful UI from the Spectre, Audiofile’s real-time analysis application.
  • Auto Save & Versions – automatically save your projects with browse history.
  • Multi-Touch Gestures.
  • Full Apple Script Support for complex workflows, automation and interacting with other applications.
  • Actions for a clean, uncluttered interface and intuitive workflow.
  • Effects Groups – save a group of Effects including their settings for use on future projects.
  • Effects Automation – new Shapes feature can automate the parameters of an effect.
  • High performance scrubbing and innovative FHX™ headphone listening plug-in.
  • Hardware Output & Channel Mapping for greatly improved system configuration.
  • Full Support for iXML.
  • Support for Retina displays.
  • Analog Simulation.

Triumph is available to purchase for Mac, at the introductory price of $59.99 USD through November 16th, 2012 (25% off regular $79.99 USD). Users who purchased Wave Editor 1.5 on or after May 1st, 2012 may request a license key for Triumph 2.0 at no charge.

Quiztones ear training App now for Android

Related: , , , Posted in news on Sep 07, 2012 - comment 0 comments
QuizTones for Android

Quiztones founder Dan Comerchero has announced the release of an Android version of QuizTones, the popular ear training app.

Quiztones for Android is a frequency ear training app for amateur and professional audio engineers, producers, and musicians. Previously only available for Mac and iOS, it has helped countless musicians and audio professionals train their ears to instantly and intuitively recognize frequencies. This is useful when mixing, adjusting EQ settings, and identifying/eliminating feedback.

Audio professionals as well as amateur musicians spend a great deal of time analyzing frequencies, whether adjusting them for a good mix in the studio, or trying to get rid of feedback on stage. Ear training with Quiztones can make this a lot faster and easier by training the ear and eliminating trial and error methods of frequency identification such as sweeping.

Ever since Quiztones hit the market, Comerchero has been receiving requests to develop Quiztones for Android. “What can I say, the ‘when will Quiztones be available for Android’ emails just wore me down”, he jokes, and adds, “There were so many Android users asking for Quiztones, I literally had no other choice but to build it.” Now, Android users, too, can use the clever quizzes to engage in training exercises from sine waves and pink noise to real-world sounds like frequency-altered drums, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass and vocals.

Quiztones features

  • Sharpen your ears & frequency recognition skills.
  • Improve your mixing and EQ chops.
  • Prevent noise and frequency buildup in your mixes & recordings.
  • Eliminate the need to sweep for frequencies.
  • Quizzes included in Quiztones Android version 1: Sine Waves, Pink Noise, Piano, Drums, Bass, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar.

The Android version of QuizTones is available on the Google Play Store at an introductory price of $1.99 USD.
