Fission was always a simple and fast method for edits of recordings from both Audio Hijack Pro and Piezo, as well as creating iPhone ringtones, editing iTunes Music Store files, and more. After 6 years, Fission comes out with a new version 2 that takes audio editing up a notch.
Fission 2 Key Features
Export any file to MP3, AAC, FLAC, Apple Lossless, AIFF, or WAV
Batch convert dozens of files at once, with the Batch Converter
Share audio to SoundCloud.com
Chapterized AAC files make creating enhanced podcasts a snap
A gorgeous and easy-to-use new interface
And of course, much more
If you’ve used Fission before, you’ll immediately see that the most obvious change is its appearance. Every aspect of Fission has been examined and considered, with enhancements made across the board. The editing workflow is a snap to learn for new users, while existing users of Fission will be instantly familiar with version 2.
They’ve also packed in several major new features to make editing audio easier than ever. First up, that includes support for exporting directly to all major audio formats. You can still save losslessly to your file’s original format, of course, but now you can export your audio to MP3, AAC, Apple Lossless, FLAC, AIFF, or WAV too.
If you want to convert multiple files, Fission has you covered there too, with the new Batch Converter. Drop an album’s worth of FLAC files on the Batch Converter, and you can have a folder full of MP3s with just 2 clicks. Converting from one format to another format couldn’t be simpler.
Speaking of FLAC, Fission now has full support for the popular lossless audio format. FLAC files can be opened, edited, and saved, making it possible to change them as needed, or just export them to a smaller format for portability. Fission 2 now also supports WAV audio files, in addition to its “original four” formats of MP3, AAC, Apple Lossless, and AIFF.
On top of all that, they tossed in the ability to open multiple audio files at once for easy joining or multitasking, fast creation of Chapterized AAC files for enhanced podcasts, improved iPhone ringtone saving, and more. We’re incredibly proud of Fission 2, and we think you’re going to love it. If you need to edit audio on your Mac, you just can’t go wrong using Fission.
The price will be only $32 and only $15 for an upgrade. Learn more about the app at http://www.rogueamoeba.com.
