TwistedWave is THE audio recording and editing application I have dreamt about since I sang my first song and played my first note. Finally, I can work fast and preserve my initial inspiration. There is NO learning curve. .. launch, hit red button, select an area, edit, save, DONE! This little program is the epitome of user friendly, without sacrificing features. TwistedWave is well thought out, clean, and clever. The editing features have depth (fade in and out, compressor-limiter, EQ, pitch shifting, time stretching, etc.), the sound quality is fantastic (up to 24-bit/192 kHz), it supports all the main formats (.wav, aiff, MP3, etc.), and the layout and functionality are second to none. Did I mention batch processing and metadata editing? What's not to like? Even the price is right! I give TwistedWave as many stars as there is in the sky. Thank you for creating such an amazingly simple, yet powerful program.
