Audiofile Engineering launches Triumph with new interface, features and functionality 09/11/12
Audiofile Engineering has announced Triumph, the sequel to their Wave Editor audio editing application. Audiofile tells us that, available as an app for Mac OS X, they have redefined audio editing with Triumph as an "audio designer", sporting a newly redesigned interface and a host of new features and functionality.
Triumph is much more than just a new version of Wave Editor, which is also the reason for the new name. Matthew Foust, founder of Audiofile Engineering, explains, "Our goal is to always be on the cutting edge of technology and interface design. We completely rewrote Wave Editor. We rethought everything, not only how to improve on what we built in Wave Editor, but how we could bring the concept of an audio editor forward. Triumph takes full advantage of all of the latest technologies Mac OS X has to offer."
Here's more details in the company's own words:
Musicians and audio professionals who are already fans of Audiofile Engineering's Wave Editor will be delighted in seeing the new Triumph's single window and full screen support, experiencing the completely rewritten audio system and the significantly improved arrangement & mastering features, all fully 64-bit. Less guess work and more speed
Triumph features a unique and patented method for editing audio: Layers. It's similar to image editing in technique, but is specifically tailored for audio. The Layers method is an innovative way to create combinations of sounds. It saves time by keeping everything live and editable until the final product and results in less guesswork and more speed. Spacious, natural sounds thanks to FHX
The new FHX™ effect in Triumph solves a number of the issues often associated with listening to music on headphones. FHX creates a more spacious, natural sound stage over headphones -- enabling an exceptional listening experience that will truly inspire and engage.
Audiofile Engineering has teamed up with iZotope and now includes iZotope Restore & Restoration as well as the advanced iZotope MBIT+ and 64-bit SRC options for disc burning in Triumph. Key new features include:
