What are you Mac guys using?
« on: June 11, 2019, 01:59:08 PM »
The "wife" just bought us an iMac and I'm a little lost when it comes to workflow. I use these programs for my windows machine (work computer): Audacity, CD Wave, Foobar, etc.

I have downloaded Audacity and Foobar but can't get the Live Show Tagger to show up. I ended up using the regular Foobar tagging but it took quite a while. I'm sure there is a better program for this.

I'm thinking about trying out Adobe Audition. Thoughts?

Sound Studio (tracking, normalize, etc), Reaper (multi-track), xAct (FLAC), Sound Forge occasionally


I tried Audition but it didnt seem worth the cost.

Sound Studio for most editing, Audacity for mixing down from multitrack to stereo. Tag for tags, xAct for fingerprints, Max for translating file formats. AudioHijack for recording audio streams, phone calls, you name it.

And I forgot about Rogue Amoeba's Airfoil, which may be my favorite app ever. (Sends audio from any app to any remote speaker on your network.)

Personally I’m a logic guy, but Reaper works great too.

Audacity for creating label tracks, label2cue java script app to convert that text file to a cue, then XLD to load the cue and chop up the set. xACT for dealing with the occasional shn files I come across, and to join sets that have split wav files.
