Reprinted from an Unrelated Inventions press release:
Unrelated Inventions is proud to announce the launch of a new version of Audiotools, a Windows software for audio recording and audio file conversion and manipulation.
Audiotools works in a WYSIWYG way and allows users to record whatever you can feed in their soundcard directly to disk. With modern, duplex soundcards, they can also record anything that you can play, including MIDI files or streamed audio from the Internet.
The software allows users to do easily some very complicated sound processing tasks as it can correct sound files for noise reduction, automatically split files into many based on the detected silences or merge many files into one. You can also do some very basic and standard tasks as CD ripping and file conversion for various audio formats (such as mp3 to wav, mp3 to au, wma to mp3 etc.).
Audiotools has powerful support for plugins (including DirectX plugins) to add further sound processing processes. It can also be used to create CD’s or MP3 collection in a WYSIWYG way as it has built in support for CD Writing and for Lame, Gogo or Fraunhoffer MP3 encoders. The new version also allows for the creation of multiple skins for the interface of the software.
Audiotools costs $25 USD for a fully licensed copy and comes with full documentation and customer support.
