DSP-Quattro 4.2.2 | Mac Os X | 32.4 MB
DSP-Quattro, the powerful Audio Editor for Mac OS X. This major new version introduces a lot of important new features and improvements. There is a new graphic Cut Editor which offers the maximum flexibility doing click-free cut&paste of audio waveforms, allowing you to draw x-fades curves by yourself.
There is a built-in de-clicker tool for audio restoration, side by side with a new pencil tool to re-draw waveforms by hand, and also a very useful gain tool to manually lower transients by a real-time graphic control. Moreover, new High Quality Time Stretching and Frequency Shifting algorithms are built-in in version 4, there is a new graphic editor for Fade-In/Outs, up to 4 Aux busses to address outputs, user configurable key commands, unlimited number of effx slots to insert plug-ins, a new internal 'plug-in' module to address external audio hardware for external audio processing... and much more.
DO AUDIO EDITING
Load your audio files, import your mp3s, do all the edits you need... Cut, copy&paste, add dynamic and color, add life to your sounds, place them in a new room. Do audio restoration of your old vinyls. All with the simplest and most intuitive graphic interface. Always with the speed of light, even while editing audio files as long as a full Audio-CD! And, if you do something wrong, don't worry! you have unlimited and immediate undos/redos...
DO AUDIO RECORDING
Use DSP-Quattro to do your amateur or professional live recordings as well. Get the audio from your Mac microphone or from the most advanced Audio interface connected to your Apple Mac, DSP-Quattro will always guarantee an absolutely perfect and glitch free recording session, thanks to its internal advanced triple buffering audio caching engine. Don't lose any sample of your incoming audio stream!
DO PLUG-IN HOSTING
Host your favorite audio plug-ins to apply the most advanced and original third party algorithms to your audio files, with full latency compensation and sample precision. Play your Virtual Instruments while listening to your audio files, use your Mac to learn to play music, or as a real-time effect box by hosting Effect plug-ins, routing audio inputs to outputs through your favourites effects. Play live your acoustic or electric musical instruments adding outstanding effects to your music!
DO AUDIO-CD MASTERING
Use the advanced AudioCD layout waveform editor to assemble your audio files, place your audio-CD Tracks, edit the crossfades between your audio files for smooth and inaudible transitions between your CD tracks. Burn your Audio-CDs without leaving the application. See what you get, use your mouse to move your audio tracks back and forth in the time line, use AU/VST plug-ins even on the single CD Track on your AudioCD layout... take advantage of the simplest and most complete tool for Audio-CD Mastering! And... are you a professional user? Use DSP-Quattro to edit CD-Texts, ISRC and PQ codes, and to import/export DDP AudioCD images as well...
