Ratings and Reviews

Great idea, very unusable editor.

It’s SO CLOSE to being a great tool. You can zoom, drag a selection, drop a marker (with duration!), and then export those markers as seperate files. Great idea! However, the UI is quite unusable. You can adust the start or end of a marker, but you can’t ever get the playhead back to the beginning or end of the marker. There’s no way to move the selection to an existing marker, no way to move the playhead to the beginning or end of a marker, no way to loop in a marker, and no way to adjust the begining or end of a selection without re-creating the selection.

Developer: Please consider adding the following features: loop selection, set the selection to the start and end of a marker when you click it and move the playhead to start, lock selection to the start and end of a marker when you adjusting a marker, keys to move playhead to pre/next marker (which selects the marker), drag handles on selections so that you can zoom way in and tweak one end without upsetting the other end of the selection.

Still not sure . . .

I loaded this app a few days ago and finally used it today. I like the ease of using it; the sound quality was good but a dialog box popped up right away indicating this version can only handle a max of 10 seconds and the Pro version should be purchased right away if larger tracks will be converted.

I am somewhat puzzled about that as I did not purchase the pro version and went on to play the track. Once I heard it and saved it, I went to the app store to see if any further information was in the description. If there is, I have yet to find it. My track was 2.37; I don’t know enough about this, I’m just finding my way so I don’t know if that 2.37 refers to time, sound or something else I am ignorant of.

Conclusion, happy with this result so far, not so sure about how useful a 10 second app will be in the long run and finally, absolutely did not like the sales pitch with that hidden information the first time used; it felt like pressure to buy the pro app and may have used misinformation as leverage. Buyer beware.

This is not FREE and does not warn you. Is misleading.

I don’t like when companies like this call it free and then it is of no real use. Go ahead and download this if you need to record something for 10 seconds. But if you need to record something 11 seconds or more, then go ahead and pay for the “pro” version. Why doesn’t the company just tell the truth to begin with. This make we want to justifiably pirate these pirates.
