Audio Ease Snapper 2
Audio Ease has released version 2.0 of Snapper, the on-screen waveform that appears as soon as you select a sound file in the Mac Finder.
With Snapper, while staying in the Finder, you can grab a part of the waveform and drag it anywhere: into another Finder window to create a new file, into tracks of your editing software, or you can convert it to split-stereo, mp3, mp4, etc. You can extract audio from video, normalize, fade, or shoot the selection up to the cursor of your Pro Tools, Nuendo, Cubase or Logic. All without ever leaving the Mac Finder.
Snapper 2 is a major upgrade to Snapper 1, adding the top features people have been asking for:
- Much improved integration with Snow Leopard.
- Spot-to-cursor supports Nuendo, Cubase, Logic and ProTools.
- Drag selections anywhere, into tracks of any DAW, video editor or even iChat or mail.
- Even smaller cpu footprint.
- Better looking waveforms that build up quicker, and zoom smoother.
- Loop playback.
- 64 bit file support.
- New edit features such as a trim tool, fades and normalizing.
- Varispeed playback without pitch shift.
- Recent files tab.
- Level meters.
- And dozens of other features.
Audio Ease has made a 100 second overview tour of Snapper 2, and a movie about only the new features at audioease.com/snapper. You can try for yourself using Snapper's 100 day fully functional demo.
