Well, it’s been nearly a week now and I’ve had plenty of time to play with audio. There have been a few new developments too – I’ve bought an Olympus Digital Voice Recorder (WS-200S), plus a few accessories. It’s very cool, and I’ll write a review of it soon.
In my last post, I said I was going to buy the Acoustica MP3 Audio Mixer software, but I didn’t, instead I spent a few days playing with it.
I *did* make a donation to Martin Laine like I said I would, I thought £10.00 ($18.00) was a reasonable donation to make, and he’s written to me thanking me for it, which was nice of him. If you use the software and find it useful, I strongly suggest you make a donation of some sort to show your appreciation.
Back to Acoustica. Instead of buying the MP3 Audio Mixer, I today bought the (only slightly) more expensive Acoustica Mixcraft instead. Although I may not need all of the additional features, it’s nice to know they’re there if I need them at a later date.
Acoustica have a deal on where if you buy Mixcraft on the same day you install it, you get $5.00 off. So that’s what I did, I installed it, tried it out for an hour, and paid $34.95 which worked out as £19.03 at the current exchange rate.
It’s very similar to MP3 Audio Mixer, and just as easy to use, but does some additional clever things if you’re inclined. Again I’ll write a review soon, but if you can’t wait for that, just nip along to their website and grab a copy, you’ll be glad you did.
