Fission: new Mac app splits audio files
Rogue Amoeba’s new application, Fission is a minimalist audio editor for the MacOS. It cuts portions out of audio files. Most importantly, it splits longer audio files into smaller portions. It’s a compliment to another of Rogue Amoeba’s well-known offering, Audio Hijack. When I reviewed the universe of audio editor appliactions for importing oral history recordings into the computer, Audio Hijack didn’t make the short list. How could you break up long recordings into smaller portions if you wanted to segment Uncle Bob’s stories into separate audio tracks? Fission does that. Audio Hijack and Fission together cost $50–each, separately, cost $32. (Thanks to site member RBrower for bringing it to my attention!)
