Need an Editor for Mac that can handle 32 bit?
« on: July 12, 2021, 03:32:19 PM »
SSIA

Logic Pro doesn't handle 32 bit yet (seems way behind)
Reaper? (looks complicated)
Audacity 3.0?

A good rec would be great. Thanks

I've been using Amadeus Pro for many years, and still find it very user-friendly and capable.

Reaper isn't complicated unless you want it to be. It's easy to do simple things, and if you need to do serious work, it can do that as well. There are tons of great YouTube tutorials out there.

Audacity 3.0?
Any version of Audacity should do it (note that versions later than 3.0.2 track user behavior!)
But I've problems encoding 32-bit FLAC at times. (I usually aim for 24 so 32 is an error when I do it)
Do you have 32 Float or Signed?

I use Audacity, Izotope and Reaper for pretty much every show, unless it's only a two track recording. Then I cut out Audacity.

iZotope RX and Reaper are my two post apps that are used for every concert. RX is used for global level change / normalization, spectral denoise for reducing steady-state noise, and spectral repair or click removal for removing periodic noises. Note that you need to purchase the Standard version to get Spectral Denoise and Spectral repair, but it's well worth it.

I export a fresh set of processed files from RX, and then import to Reaper for all other editing.

The Fairlight audio module in Davinci Resolve handles 32-bit audio incl 32-bit float.
It’s free as well.

DaVinci Resolve is an all-around amazing video editing app. That's what I use. The Fairlight module is cool, but I find a bit cumbersome compared to a dedicated DAW once you have more than a few tracks.

Hey all, sorry to dig up an old thread, but I figured I would post here as to not create another one. I looked around a bit and was wondering, I just changed over to mac from pc. My normal old post routine was audacity>Cdwav. It appears to me that cd wav will not run on mac? I know my way around audacity pretty well at this point, so I think I would like to stick with it for the front, but is there anything as good as cd wav in the mac world for splitting tracks? Free ideally, or if I am going to spend some money, not a lot. Is there something that would take me start to finish in one app. Coming in at 32/48 at going out at flac 8? I see a lot of people use reaper? Can the whole deal be done right in there? If this has been discussed at length and you can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. Thanks!

Yeah, you can do everything in Reaper if you want to. Any processing, splitting, and will render FLAC

I've tested TwistedWave with a Zoom F6 file provided by someone on here and it works fine with 32 bit.

Long time Audacity user starting out on Reaper. Poly wav split question:
Looks like folks mostly do the split in another app then import. Is that b/c it's a pita in Reaper? The workflow I've found is to explode the poly wav, then run the following custom action:

Sws:select only tracks with selected items
xenakios/sws :select first of selected tracks
Xenakios/sws: implode items to takes and pan symmetrically
item :glue items

I'd assign a keyboard shortcut for it to make it simple to implement, but before I go that route thought I'd ask more experienced folks.

Opinions, please.

I am not sure of your workflow, nor familiar with SWS or xenakios, so this may not be relevent.

I suspect people (mainly MixPre users) use Waveagent to split their polywav because they don't know about Reaper's explode item, or aren't using Reaper. Also, Waveagent does not work with 32bit-float. I work 24 bit, and do both methods, but Reaper's explode item is quick and easy. It also appears to duplicate the audio data for each exploded track of the polywav, and in the case of Mac, seems to throw the files into my Documents folder. I move them to the root Reaper folder of my project, so everything is together when I copy the folder for archiving or working from another machine.

Once exploded, all of the polywav tracks are separate (subtracks?) and I mix like any multitrack project. If I recorded L/R mix in the polywav (1-2), I just mute or delete them as I usually don't need them in a remix.

Thanks!

My big takeaway is that maybe I don't have to make stereo tracks after all; I'm just used to them.

Explode, edit, mix, master may be the workflow to go with.

For the stuff I do on my MixPre10s, I don't bother to combine stereo tracks after exploding, I just pan them hard L/R and use Reaper's track grouping for that pair, and I only group volume, mute and solo. One reason to make it 1 stereo track would be to make it easier to do an automation envelope - half the work as doing 2 separate tracks.

Also, on my stuff, I just prefer to edit the stereo mixdown.
