Editing Software for Mac users
« on: February 19, 2019, 03:48:13 PM »
Looking for editing software suggestions for mac users?  Doing stealth taping with a Sony A10 and CA 11's?  The software that is included with the A10 is only compatible with Windows and I am a mac user.  Thanks.

I use SoundStudio for tracking and Reaper for mixing.  Sometimes Soundforge w/ iZotope plugin for resampling.

As a guy who comes from studio production and post, I’ll say use whatever is best for your workflow. If you want a full-featured DAW, learn and use one throughout. Read the manual, learn how to edit, practice. At the end of the day most are pretty similar and you can get one DAW’s workflow close to another’s, the key is learning one you know well and can do editing in without thinking.

For me, that happens to be Logic. For others, it may be - as noah suggested - Reaper. Others still, Pro Tools. They are all fine software tools, so long as you keep in mind they’re tools and not magical fixes.

Audacity is free and can use VST plugins.
https://sourceforge.net/projects/audacity/files/audacity/2.1.0/
If you need to do speed corrections, the older 2.1.0 version has more precision on the built in speed change plug-in.

I use SoundStudio ($30) for tracking and things like dynamic compression, and Audacity (free) for mixing. As wforwumbo says, it's all about what you're comfortable with.
