What is SoundEdit 16?

SoundEdit 16 2.0 better addresses the needs of multimedia producers by providing improved downsampling and dithering options — essential for getting good sound on CD-ROMs and the Web. Pros will also appreciate a batch mode that processes a flock of files in sequence.

The new version adds read-write support for AU files (a popular Web-site audio format) and for IMA compression (supported by Apple’s QuickTime 2.1 and later). It also can import tracks from audio compact discs.

Macromedia fixed a glaring flaw in SoundEdit 16 1.0: the lack of recording-level adjustments. A new Levels window provides LED-style volume meters and lets you set record and playback levels. SoundEdit 16’s user interface now more closely resembles those of its Macromedia siblings — with menu commands and tool bars similar to Director 5’s.

More significant, version 2.0 lets you add third-party plug-ins (called Xtras) such as processing and effects filters, as well as file-import and -export modules; InVision Interactive... offers its CyberSound FX family of effects in SoundEdit 16 Xtra format. Waves... has released an Xtra that enables SoundEdit 16 to use the company’s superb sound-enhancement tools.

Unfortunately, SoundEdit 16 2.0 lacks scrubbing, a feature that lets you play a sound back and forth by moving the mouse. It’s essential for editing voice tracks, and its absence in SoundEdit 16 2.0 is one reason I use Digidesign’s Sound Designer II for heavy editing sessions.

Another annoyance; every time you save a file, SoundEdit 16 2.0 scrolls the file’s window to the beginning, so you lose your place — a real pain when editing large files. Saves are also slow.
