◉ Record, Edit and Convert Audio with Boson.

Boson is perfect for anyone who needs to edit audio files, convert music from one format to another, record an internet radio stream, digitize a beloved vinyl collection or just make a quick voice memo.

Boson supports reading, editing and writing of the most common audio file formats like mp3, mp4, ogg, flac, wav and many more.

◉ Easy to Use (for beginners and pros alike)

Boson is easy to use and beginner friendly. The included manual features an easy to follow introduction to audio editing and recording and the "cook book" section gives step-by-step instructions on how to perform the most common tasks (like creating a MP3 file or recording music from a website and much more).


◉ Comes With Many Built-in Audio Effects for Free

Boson comes pre-loaded with the most important audio effects. With these built-in effects you are prepared for most audio editing tasks life might throw at you. Of course you can also use 3rd party Audio Unit plugins with Boson. Just in case you need done something more exotic. We even included a list of dozens of freely available Audio Unit plugins for you to download and get really creative!

◉ Highest Quality Possible

Boson has been designed so that you can work with your audio data without worrying to introduce any quality losses. Boson internally uses 32bit float samples to keep your data always at the highest quality possible so you can focus on the task at hand.

◉ Battery Friendly Recording

Boson features an optional low power mode which saves up to 80% battery power during recording. Ideally for when you want to perform extensive recording tasks out in the field without an outlet in sight. Once this mode is activated Boson will keep CPU and GPU utilization to a minimum.

◉ 100% Retina Ready

Boson heavily uses Core Animation to achieve a smooth 60 frames per seconds when drawing wave forms. Even on Retina Macs! Gone are the days of jerky scrolling and zooming.

Time Waster!

I spent a four hour period today trying to convert a video's Audio so that I could fade the end of the music in a video I needed to post on Vimeo. 4 hours later, I realized that, after all that time tweaking and slaving over how to make it happen, I couldn't get by the fact that this product will not let you do ANYTHING unless you buy it. Now, if I had know this was the case, I wouldn't have even downloaded it. I have no idea how much they want, because I was so disgusted that I just clicked it off. Don't waste your time.

Three of the same audio editors??????

Ok what is going on. Boston, Microwave and Vector 3 are the same EXACT program. Yes they changed some colors but Who made the original program and who made the copies? I am not going to support some software pirates. The real creator of this needs to stay and receive all money given to any of the fakes…..

Not Free when exporting to MP3. Graphics are so-so.

So, you can only save files in Boson’s file-format. You can’t Export to MP3 unless you buy the $20 version. That was REALLY annoying but having tried it out i went a head and bought the Pro version. I do pretty simple editing, so i don’t need a bunch of bells and whistles. But i DO need precision graphics. Unfortunatly the graphics for the sound wave are very subpar. When you zoom in tightly for a close edit the graphics look like they are still rendering. Even after the update. I have a new computer too so i know it’s not me. Other than that the pro version does what i need to.
