Rogue Amoeba updates Fission Audio Editor for Mac to v2.1

Rogue Amoeba has released version 2.1 of Fission, its audio editor for Mac OS X.


  • Fission is now fully Retina-ready.
  • MP3 export now supports both constant bit rate (CBR) and variable bit rate (VBR).
  • AAC export now supports High Efficiency encoding (HE-AAC).
  • Files can now be dragged from iTunes into Fission's Start window.
  • Fission can now import audio from .mov, .wma, .avi, .mp4 files, and more.
  • A bug which could trigger an alert when closing an unsaved document has been fixed.
  • Album artwork now properly appears in the file's icon when available.
  • Fission now writes iTunes-style tags to AIFF files, non-standard though they may be.
  • Using "i" and "o" to create a selection has been improved, allowing playback while creating the selection.
  • Any file can now use the "Save As Chapterized AAC" option, regardless of its current file format or number of clips present.
  • Fission's Save dialogs now properly handle file extensions.
  • Files imported via QuickTime now only allow for an Export, to avoid overwriting the original file.
  • In addition to the iTunes dragging noted above, the Start window now takes drags of all document types Fission can open.
  • An issue where converting file formats erroneously produced CBR files (despite claiming to make VBR files) has been corrected.
  • A problem where the Undo menu item unhelpfully said "Undo Button" for several actions has been fixed.
  • The Start window no longer appears than immediately disappears on launch, when Fission is opening to a file. It also no longer immediately reappears when closed if no other windows are open.
  • The delete and backspace keys now both perform the same expected functions.
  • Issues caused by Fission over-zealously writing its file icon, such as other applications not correctly changing the icon at a later point, have been removed.
  • Erroneous errors which could pop up when cancelling transcoding, exporting, or saving have been fixed.
  • When an error occurs during Batch Conversion, the Batch Converter continues with the rest of the files after the error dialog is dismissed.
  • Closing the Start window no longer immediately re-opens it.
  • "Remove & Split" has been renamed to "Remove and Split" in the Clip menu.
  • Support for several additional sample rates (88.2, 96, 176.4, 192 and 352.8 kHz) has been added to ALAC, FLAC, AIFF, and WAV.
  • Chapterized AAC files which must be converted now save to the 128 kbps 44.1 kHz stereo AAC format (instead of 192 kbps).
  • "Save As Chapterized AAC" is always available now, regardless of original file format or number of clips present.
  • Chapter images for Chapterized AAC files are now all padded to the size of the largest image.
  • An issue where closing an unsaved document in trial mode could still result in a corrupting save has been fixed (2.0.0a2).
  • "Export Selection" now features the keyboard shortcut Option-Command-E.
  • A new hidden preference for checking for Normalization Clipping has been added, accessible from the Debugging window.
  • Custom format selections for exporting and batch converting have been improved to prevent invalid formats.
  • Fission's accessibility for visually impaired users has been improved, correctly labeling several unlabeled elements.
  • Fission now supports the TLEN ID3 tag.
