Jasmine Audio’s newest release of its Macintosh-based audio editor, Jasmine Audio 1.8, has been completely rewritten for OS X, offering new features such as an updated interface, a flexible and robust Import and Export feature, help tags, bug fixes and more.
Version 1.8 now supports multiple file formats including MP4/AAC, .WAV, .AIFF, AVI, 3GPP, System 7, µLaw and several QuickTime formats. This feature allows for changes in sampling frequency (up to 48 kHz), bit depth, stereo interlacing and common compression/streaming protocols. Files can be mixed and formatted for use with Apple’s GarageBand or iMovie.
According to Robert “Buzz” Hill, Jasmine’s founder and chief developer, “The changes we made in this release allow us to bring Jasmine up to speed with the iPod revolution by allowing users to import MP3s, create edits and fades, and then export the project as a high-quality MP4/AAC file.”
Jasmine is free to try for 14 days and $29.95 to buy. Registered users are eligible for free upgrades to Jasmine 1.8. Users who have tried Jasmine before are eligible for an additional 14 days to try V. 1.8.
