It’s Macromedia’s respected SoundEdit 16 in its second incarnation, viz.version 2. The way Apple has designed the Mac board makes it very difficult to carry out some specialised high quality sound activities. Macromedia can’t do much about that, but its SoundEdit is widely used by multimedia producers and version 2 allows batch processing of audio files. It supports IMA compression and down-sampling options such as dither and brighten. As part of its strategy to take over the entire design software world Macromedia has bought up OSC, developer of the pro multi-track app Deck II, version 2.5 of which is currently being shipped over. And it’s just formed an association with leading audio software house Waves. Is there no end to it all? Call Macromedia for more details on 01344 761 111.
