|A collection of simple programs, housed under one roof.
Or rather, a bunch of audio tools. All residing in one toolbox.
When we at DAK developed Audio Workshop, maintaining a straightforward workflow was one of our top priorities. Any feature that didn't directly contribute to recording and editing our music did not belong in the program.
That being the case, we removed all of the extra features that have been jam packed into programs that we'd developed in the past (if you've owned the Wave Editor, you'll know exactly what I mean...).
The result is an intuitive streamlined interface for which we've received overwhelmingly positive feedback.
BUT, I've also been receiving requests from our DAKonians
like, "What happened to all of the goodies?!" or "I enjoyed those bonus programs!"
I thought about it for a bit and decided that we should be accomodating to those of us who do use the missing bonus tools. They don't belong in Audio Workshop, but they are still good tools to have in conjunction with Audio Workshop. That's why we include it for free with the purchase of Audio Workshop.
And so, Audio Toolbox was born.
Here's the main menu for Audio Toolbox. Each mini program launches directly from here. You can use the programs simultaneously. Let's quickly glance at each program and what it does.
The crossfader is a great for creating playlists and playing through them without any silences. The best part is that it as an Auto-Fade Mode where it automatically fades out and in through your entire playlist.
You have the ability to adjust Tempo and Pitch in real time. It also has some fun real time effects to use during playback (I actually do use the Flanger effect for kicks, although I don't take it very seriously).
As basic as its name, use Import CD if you want to import a CD to your computer. Pop in a music CD, click an Retrieve Album Info and save it to your computer fully ID'ed - album art and all.
Ever download a song only to find that it isn't encoded in mp3 format?
I'm looking at you, iTunes!
All you do is load up the file in Format Converter and, POOF!, your file has been duplicated in wav or mp3 format.
You can convert the following file types:
.mp3, .mp2, .wav, .ogg, .aac, .mp4, .m4a, .aiff, .wma, .wmv, .asx, .asf, .ac3, .flac, .wv, .it, .xm, .s3m, .mod, .mtm, .mo3, .cda.
This is a handy tool to have lying around. Especially if you're getting it for free.
ID Tag Editor
For all those times a song comes up on your computer or smartphone and you notice that it's missing some album information- or worse- it has WRONG information, please, do your library a favor and correct the ID tag...
...And don't get me started on how irksome it is to discover that you have three different artists as follows:
Anyway, that can all be corrected with an ID Tag Editor.
One DAKonian in particular (you know who you are) wanted something like the Forbidden Song Grabber, but with the option to also record from other input devices if desired. It wasn't too difficult to add this in, so I did.
Aside from the various input device selection, plus the playback functionality for recorded files, it's really the same.
I still choose Forbidden Song Grabber over this recorder any day.
Text to Audio
The return of this mini program was much requested by our DAKonians.
Aside for typing or pasting text to have "Anna" read it back to you, you can save the text as an audio file. The benefit is that if you can listen to the text/audio clip from your smartphone or mp3 player. So when you're driving and need to keep your eyes on the road, you can still get some reading done. The narration's cadence isn't great, but it's perfectly intelligible.
A collection of bonus programs excluded from Audio Workshop to minimize clutter.
Six differet mini programs comprise the main menu for Audio Toolbox.
Crossfader: Create and fade between playlists for seamless transistions between your songs.
The included CD ripper will automatically search for all available album info.
Convert one audio file format to a different format with Format Converter. Useful if you want to create an mp3 CD, or if your smartphone doesn't recognize certain file formats for playback.
Add and edit track information with ID Tag Editor.
Record from any available input device on your computer, or any sound that comes through your speakers.
Have your text read back to you in an audio format that can be saved for later use.
