What’s Coming Up Next? – MacHouse Introducing audioKut for Mac OS X

Mac software audioKut






TOKYO (MacHouse) – So we started developing Mac software titles again last month. We’ve released five applications so far. A couple of them are already available at Mac App Store. We released the last Mac application just four days ago. And we are ready to introduce another one. It’s called audioKut.

audioKut is a Mac desktop application that lets you divide one or more audio clips into segments of an equal duration. You specify the equal segment duration in terms of the number of seconds or minutes. And audioKut will cut them into pieces all at a time.
 





Available at Mac App Store
Mac App Store






Features

  1. Use a drop box to read audio files that are readily available at a time.
  2. Set the segment duration, by which to cut original audio clips, between 1 second and 59 minutes.
  3. Let the application keep audio properties such as the bit rate, sampling rate, number of channels in tact.
  4. Language: English only.
  5. The application supports the Retina display.
  6. Application file size: 32.4 MB
  7. The application comes with a complete online user’s guide written in English. (Choose ‘User’s Guide’ under ‘Help.’)






System requirements

  1. Mac OS X 10.7 Lion or higher (compatible with Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks)
  2. 64-bit system
  3. A computer display capable of showing at least 669 x 583 pixels






Limitations

  1. A segment duration must be specified in a discrete, positive number between 0 and 59. Virtually, a segment duration must be specified between 1 second and 59 minutes.
  2. The only audio formats that this application reads include AIF, AU, M4A, MP3, OGG, WAV, WMA. Additionally, the user can force the application to read FLAC (.flac) and Monkey’s Audio (.ape) at their own risk with Version 1.1.0.
  3. A source file must NOT contain a special character in its name.






Version history

Note: Release dates are ones when updates are announced here, not when updates are actually released at Mac App Store. We make no promise that they will be accepted by iTunes Connect and then released at Mac App Store.

1.1.0 (Released on June 6, 2013)

  1. When the user clicks on the Info toolbar button, the application will open an additional window to show media information.
  2. The user can force the application to read additional media types including FLAC (.flac) and Monkey’s audio (.ape) at their own risk. (See Preferences > Media types.)
  3. Preferences: When the user attempted to select an alternative default export folder other than Documents and then canceled the select-folder window, the ‘Other…’ selection remained.
  4. Fix: The application reloads preference values after the user reopens Preferences without saving changes before.
  5. A few other minor changes and improvements are done.






Credit notes

The application utilizes the following command-line tools.

  1. FFmpeg (http://www.ffmpeg.org/)
  2. MediaInfo (http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net)
