51@ I understand it is not supposed to download video...I don't have problem with that. I want it to strip just the audio, but it is doing nothing, absolutely nothing. Going through the motions and doing nothing. I am some what disappointed in that part of it. I haven't tried much of the other things. If anybody out there has been able to download anything from YouTube, please let me know! Thanks.

Pretty good, thanks GOTD! Installed, registered and ran without issues on my Windows 7 64-bit system

Has a nice-looking ribbon interface, easier to use than most of the other audio editors I've tested. I see myself using it a lot, with Sony Sound Forge only needed for the more challenging edits.

Has nearly all the features you want for all but the most professional editing. One thing I couldn't find was the ability to easily nudge speeds faster/slower while looping repeatedly through a section to edit it.

An obvious missing feature (in the File Open process) is a list of recently opened files so that you can quickly pick one to edit it again. It's a bit of a pain to have to keep navigating through drives and folders to find them.

@ 17 The exact percent to go down one half step would be: 94.387431268 (rounded off). To go up a half step would be 1.059463094 (rounded off)

Based an a chromatic scale each step up is 2^(1/12). I use this for digital tuning charts or guitar fret layout etc.

Today's GOTD Program would not run for me, so I don't know if it will let you put in a percentage with decimal places... GOOD LUCK.

I've tried so many sound recorders and am ready to call it quits. One thing no on ever mentions is input volume control. When you record from an LP or cassette, without controlling the input volume, the playback sounds like something with blown speakers. The sound level is always too high unless you can reduce it. Not a single recorder has provided this necessary control. Hope this one does. The volume control on those that have it is for playback, which is not necessary, or for editing. You cannot edit out too much volume from poor recordings.

I installed Sound Editor Deluxe on Win 7 x64 -- monitor screen resolution 1600 x 1200.

Now, how to increase the font size?

The font is too small to read, without a magnifying glass.

This program is useless -- if there's no adjustment for the user-interface font size.

Downloaded, installed, and registered with no problems.

Running the program for the first time, I found that using the GUI is not intuitive and way too visually busy. Maybe If I had used other audio editors, I would not feel this way.

I think that the help file can be improved -- I did not always find what I was looking for. For example, what's the name of the temp file that is generated while recording? Where is it located? How do you save it as a regular file? All of the answers to those questions should be easy to find and located in the same place.

I would like to see pop ups when mousing over ALL of the icons -- each pop up could contain appropriate information from the help file. This could greatly expedite learning how to use the program and prevent a lot of time searching the Help file. At least for me.....

After recording an hour of music from a music site, I soon realized that the developer tries to put too many options on one screen. (Another way of saying "visually busy". For example, on the editing screen where the sound track is displayed as a green waveform on a black background, there is a side bar for "Effects" and "Favorites" that takes up almost 25% of the width of the screen . I would like to see these functions moved up to the tool bar, and be displayed only when called on so that you can see more of the waveform when editing.

In the editing window, moving around the wave form while editing a one hour recording is rather tedious. You have to constantly expand and contract the wave form by using the respective magnifying glasses. It would be nice: a) to be able to leave the wave form in a given expanded state and have a "jump to mm:ss" feature to reposition the cursor and the waveform, and b) have the waveform segment bee updated when the moving cursor reaches the right edge of the window.

Assume that the waveform has been expanded by some amount for editing and that the cursor is progressing from left to right. The cursor movement stops when it reaches the right edge of the window, even if there is a lot more to be edited. You have to collapse the wave form, move the cursor, re-enlarge the waveform, probably move the cursor again, and start all over. And why can't the position of the cursor in the waveform stay the same, instead of popping back to the original position when collapsing the waveform?

It took me a while to realize that there is a horizontal scroll bar. It's that tiny green square at the top of the black window. It's almost worthless when editing a one hour recording, since the positioning cannot be precise.

Another thing I would like to see is a timer to turn off recording after a selectable number of hours.

While editing the recording, I found that there were frequent skips in the recording, where, for example, "Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light...." is recorded as, "Oh, say, dawn's early light....". Sometimes it just a garble of sound. FYI, my system is XP Pro 3, 2.4 Mhz Celeron processor, 1.5 gig memory, and more hard disk space than I know what to do with.

Except for the skipping problem, these are just comments and suggestions, hopefully helpful, for the developer from a new user of the program.

Many thanks to the Developer and GAOTD for providing us with a copy of the software, and to the people making meaningful comments with their posts.

@36: re portable

Yes, you can install software onto a USB drive, but that doesn't make it portable. Usually software writes all sorts of stuff to the local hard drive (C:) or to the registry, and if that stuff is not on the hard drive or registry of the computer you plug it into, it will not work. So that's the first criterion: you can plug it into any computer and it will just work, without going through the "install and register" stuff.

The second criterion is that it shouldn't leave your information behind (or even leave behind temporary files). It should clean up the drive C and registry entries it makes, but keep your settings and data on the USB drive.

The third criterion is that it should work fine when the drive letter changes. You can't be sure what letter a USB drive will be assigned when you plug it in.

I'm glad you are able to use your USB drive on your two computers, but that doesn't mean the programs are truly "portable" in the usual sense of the term.

One of the reasons for wanting portable software is that it doesn't write stuff to the registry or leave behind stuff on the main hard drive. When you unplug the USB drive (or delete the folder) it is gone. With normal software, you have to use the "Add/remove programs" functionality to uninstall, and even then there are lots of things left over to slow down your computer.

Yes, being "portable" makes it easier to defy the licensing terms for the software, but most people do that anyway to one extent or another -- because the licensing terms are incomprehensible or illogical or unnecessarily restrictive. By my way of thinking, software companies should give us what we want (portable software), especially if we are paying for it.

There are numnerous applications like this available usually as a shareware. Some of them are Audio Edit Magic, Total Converter. I have been using Goldwave. The laest version Goldwave 5.58 can be downloaded as a shareware from their site www.goldwave.com. It is one of the best music editors available in the market and far superior to what is offered in this software.

@ Johnnie Walker #38

I wholeheartedly welcome this GAOTD offering as, hopefully, a decent tool to help me remaster some of my priceless, fragile, one-of-a-kind “old recordings”.

Johnnie,

What you mean may be called 'enhancing' or 'improving' of sound quality but it's not 're-mastering'. Actually I'm pretty sure that there were no mastering in what you recorded. If there was no mastering there's nothing to re-master.

I've got an impression that most of the people who are making comments in this thread actually know very little about the process of professional audio recording.

If you want to know more about 'mastering' and 're-mastering' you can read at least a Wikipedia article:

Just downloaded this hoping it would be useful for removing the background noise and boosting/isolating a voice that previously was not able to raise the level of, and increase the clarity of. After running the recording through this program, I don't think there will be a question of what the cop said. Will definitely prove my case! Great software and perfect timing!

Very comprehensive editor, installed and ran fine on Win 7 x64. Despite all of the features, the layout is quite confusing and difficult to use at first.

Also, many of the effects such as noise reduction have terrible default settings (removing almost half of the recording!). Creative Wave Studio is more limited but far easier to use. I'll probably keep this one - just in case I need one of the features Wave Studio doesn't have.

But honestly, it's nothing I'd be upset to live without.

Installed and registered OK. However, when looking for a setting to disable any automatic updating to ensure that this would not accidentally turn into an unregistered version, I came upon this in the built-in HELP contents:

"...Sound Editor Deluxe basic is free but we hope you will consider upgrading to Sound Editor Deluxe Master's Edition. With the Master's Edition you have a set a features designed with the professional in mind. These include a file batch converter and automation tools, bookmarks, file regions additional file formats and more. To view pricing or to purchase Sound Editor Deluxe Master's Edition please see www.soundeditordeluxe.com..."

On their website I could not find a mention of a "Master's Edition", nor (for that matter) a free "basic" one -- only a trial and paid-for edition. I am presuming that we have what would be the "Master's Edition", although it is not listed as such under the HELP > VERSION window (which does indicated the product is registered) nor on the web site.

Perhaps the HELP file (or the website) needs updating to match each other. Also, it does raise the question of whether a "trial" copy that is not registered after 30 days indeed reverts to a free/basic edition, and if so, what would be the differences in working features. The web site needs a handy comparison table that I could not find.

Or possibly a post-trial free/basic edition is not one they want to aggressively mention/promote as they may have discovered it eats into sales? Certainly can't blame them for that -- they have to make a profit!

Thanks SED and GOTD.

Hello,
I have been shooting a lot of video lately and use an HD Flip camera which has proved to be a very good recording vehicle. Using Audacity for editing sound as the camera does not have an external microphone.

I really like what I have seen so far with the sound editor and think the special effects are really going to enhance my recording.
Thankx GOTD for a great product. To the developer I think this software is well priced and I would pay for purchasing this product. I will be doing more testing this afternoon as have just shot a recent video
thankx

I also think the instructions are straight forward or we both are missing something--Oh well--I am still trying to figure out how to make a small wav file with it--I have a free program that will do it but so far I can't compress a wav small enough to embed in a website--but I don't know a lot about these things.

This is a fairly competent audio editor. It is a well-done knockoff of CoolEdit circa 2004. (CoolEdit was acquired by Adobe and became Adobe Audition.)

While there are a few spelling errors in the UI as have been noted by other posters, it is a generally well-implemented modern ribbon-type user interface. It has a spectrum display mode hidden in the Options tab that is quite fast and useful, but has a bug that causes the right channel spectrum to display incorrectly.

It also boasts a batch dialog which can do things like apply effects to mutliple files or convert file types. Oddly if all you want to do is format-convert files, you still have to apply an "effect". There's no "no-operation" effect, so you have to roll your own, such as "Insert Silence At The End" with 0ms of silence.

Some of the audio effects sound poor, such as their pitch shifter, but most are adequate.

The only sort of "power-user" feature I really wish it had is keyboard equivalents for the navigation, selection, transport, and zoom functions. I have Audition (and everything else) in my home studio, but I'll keep this program at work for the occasional simple audio editing functions I need day-to-day.

Good work SEDSoftware and thanks GOTD for another great giveaway.

Sound Editor Deluxe is a nice front end for several NCT code libraries [e.g. NCTAudioPlayer2.dll]. The upside is that for the most part they work well -- on the downside they are limited by no plugin support & compatibility problems... several people have complained in the past that they won't work for them in Vista for example. In this case a dozen NCT files are added to Windows' system folder & registered with Windows, though nothing new compared to the 24 NCT files that other apps had already installed for me -- in that respect they're a bit like the VB runtime files, installed once & (re)used by several apps. If you've already got the NCT stuff, installing an app like Sound Editor Deluxe is no big deal -- if not those 12 files can cost you 3k+ new registry entries.

As far as GUI design Sound Editor Deluxe isn't bad [screenshot on their site - http://goo.gl/x9LcJ ], with FX & filters on the left side & on the toolbar. Importing/opening audio is a bit unconventional -- it seems as if you're opening a separate applet with several menu choices, & separate apps are used if you choose Import from Video or Get from YouTube. The Import from Video option BTW seems to be how you import formats like ac3, inside [muxed] a video file or on its own. When you open a .wav file it takes a few moments as the file's scanned -- I'm not sure if it temporarily saves waveform peak data or a duplicate copy since it's not stored in the Temp folders, but storage is temporary because you go through that every time you open the same .wav file... some apps save peak data etc. after this sort of initial scan so that delay only happens once, but today's GOTD Is Not one of them. Any other criticisms are similarly minor, like no 48 kHz preset [you can set it manually], & features that are not included in the help file. No plug-in support [neither DX nor VTS] is a deal-breaker for some, but many others could care less... plug-ins let you expand what you can do, the same as in an image editor, but many people are quite happy without them.

Installing Sound Editor Deluxe is all about those NCT files... the only registry entry I saw for the app itself was the uninstall key. It takes up ~53 MB with 77 files, 8 folders in the program's folder, & you get a 2nd folder under User\ App/Application Data\ where configuration data's stored. As above there are a dozen NCT files that found their home in Windows' system folder, adding 3k+ entries to Windows' registry.

All in all [& IMHO of course] Sound Editor Deluxe is a nice app *If* you don't mind or already have the NCT files, & you don't want or need things like plug-in support or ASIO [an alternative driver setup]. And it's a good deal on GOTD today. That said, I like Sound Forge -- BTW their Studio version isn't bad, from time to time you can find it for $0 after MIR, & both versions are available for download as a trial. I've also often had Creative Soundblaster soundcards, & the editing software that's included, while no match for Sound Forge is normally quite usable. And I normally have Nero &/or Roxio suites installed, & the included audio editors aren't bad at all -- I especially like the added SoundTrax multi-track app that came with Nero Multimedia Suite 10. Simply because I bought a Nero OEM disc in 2010 for ~$12 & then paid ~$35 for their Multimedia Suite over the holidays, I would have a problem paying $30 for an audio editor like Sound Editor Deluxe on it's own. As far as free/open source software goes, while it works well I'm not a fan of Audacity, much preferring Wavosaur [wavosaur.com].

re: "Digitally remaster and restore old recordings"

Perhaps you are not considering the full scope of this software's potential use.

I have been, like so many others, for many many years, using numerous types of recording equipment (video cameras, PDA's, tape recorders, sound systems, computers, etc.) to record the audio and video of many events (weddings, birthday parties, concerts, jam sessions, baby's first words, etc.).

So, I have numerous "master recordings".

Through the years, as technology has advanced, I've used (or tried to use) various methods to "remaster" these recordings. I've had varying degrees of success, subject to: the tools I've had to work with; the quality of the original master; the quality of the original "performance"; and, of course, my limited layman's knowledge of all things acoustic.

So, I wholeheartedly welcome this GAOTD offering as, hopefully, a decent tool to help me remaster some of my priceless, fragile, one-of-a-kind "old recordings".

I have installed Sound Editor Deluxe using Windows Vista 32 bit and have had no problems so far and for those who want portable apps, you can install any software to any portable device if it has enough memory, I use a 4 gig memory stick and use it like a hard drive, you just install the software to its application folder and you can run it from there, I have many software application installed on mine that are not portable but they work on my two computers.

To nr 15: I'm no expert but I think the point of the statement about the digita remastering was, if you can manipulate the sound in any way, shape or form, you are re-mastering it. No one makes a magic box that will take a cassette tape or LP and turn it into a clear, no pop, hiss or humming/muffled master.

#17, There are 12 semi-tones in an octave, so each one is 8.33%. Two would be 16.67%, three would be 25%, and so on. This is what I use in Audacity. You can add more decimal places for more accuracy (8.3333%, 16.6667%)

Mark #14, portable versions are too easy to pirate. That's probably why you don't see a lot of them.

mike #23, people here have already testified they could split audio. However, you are right that Sony Acid and Vegas are great apps but the are quite costly.

Nikita Kobrin #15, you are right. Technically this is not remastering but you can create a new version with your own concept of what sounds better. e.g. If someone has a live concert and it sounds noisy or has too much treble, etc. You can clean it up a little but yes, it's not remastering by definition.

#4: "Can this split each instrument music in a track separately?"

The short answer is that *generally* you can't... That's what they ran into when they developed "The Beatles: Rock Band" -- Wikipedia talks about it briefly here if you scroll down to "Music Production" http://goo.gl/fC61h . Nowadays music is normally recorded to multiple tracks, either one at a time or all together -- to record more than one track at a time means spending more on hardware. To work with multiple tracks you might check out the free Traverso, or the Nero Multimedia suite comes with SoundTrax, or try Sony Vegas. You can also head over to Acid Planet http://goo.gl/v7Vh for a free version of Sony's Acid app plus tracks to remix, contests etc.

Downloaded and installed easily on my old Dell Laptop XP SP3. Registration in own name with no problem. I just did a quick test with mic and my onboard soundcard. Worked just fine. A first glance impression is that this could be a handy audio program that is simple and fast to use. Will be checking out the recording LP feature soon. I generally use Kristal Audio Engine for my more complex multichannel recording but have been looking for something like this for quick on the fly microphone recording for how to video soundtracks. Looks like this one may be the one to use. Well worth downloading and giving a good test. For most people this will most likely be sufficient for most all of their audio recording. Thanks GAOTD.

Sorry, I wish I could have edited my review. It has the best of both worlds, it downloads videos and then you may convert them to audio if you want. Thanks again!

This is a very nice, quality application. I've had it installed for just about fifteen minutes and I already fixed a live track where the lead singer talks for about 2 minutes after the song ends...ick! Now it fades out after the song is over, but before the singer starts rambling on. Love it! I realize I can do that with Audacity, but I am finding this software has some pretty cool tricks on its own. You can download music directly from You Tube videos. Thanks so much, GAOTD! A nice way to start out the week.

Installed just out of curiosity.

I miss a multi-track mode for parallel recording, but I guess that wasn't the programmers intention, at least not yet. Also, I don't think it supports VST modules. Apart from that, it seems like a nice reasonably priced alternative to more expensive editors, packed with lost of usable effects.

Nice prog, easy to use....

But,
1) Obliges the user to install Windows media 9....(need I say more?)

2) More for speech than music.

(The function 'pitch changer' only works by % & not by 'cents' or 'hertz'
For example, I tryed tuning a track in G# a half-tone down to G.
Their system (through guesswork) from 100 to 95. The resulting file being 'slighly out of tune' is, musicly speaking, unacceptable.)


Other than this, over-all, it's a saver
