TwistedWave is a very easy to use audio editor.

Create your own iPhone ringtones!

TwistedWave supports Audio Unit and VST plug-ins. Use the Audio Units provided by Apple, or find the particular effect you wanted from the hundreds of Audio Unit or VST plugins available on the internet.

TwistedWave uses the ZTX Time Stretch/Pitch Shift technology licensed from Zynaptiq, one of the most advanced algorithms for time-based manipulation of audio material available today.

Use the batch processing to apply the same sequence of effects to a list of files.

Automatically detect silences to split a large file into smaller ones.

TwistedWave works great as an audio converter. It is able to read and export sound files in many formats, including: wav, aiff, au, snd, sd2, mpg, mp2, mp3, mp4, m4r (iPhone ringtones), m4a (iTunes), m4b (audiobooks), aac, caf, flac, ogg/vorbis, wma, WavPack, Wave64. It is also possible to import the sound track from a movie in mov, avi, flv (Flash Video), wmv or mpeg format.

Version 1.9.1
Review by frank.moore

Great software but buy elsewhere - TwistedWave is a great application. It's very similar to the old SoundEdit Pro package old-school Mac users will remember from days of yore. Having said that, don't but it here. The version on the Apple store is 1.9.1 and the current version from the developer is 1.10.1. Additionally, you cannot install the updated version directly from the developer because it requires a registration key which Apple will not give you. So, great app but buy direct.

Version 1.11.4
Review by Sk8rphil

Doesn't do simple tasks - I purchased this program in desperation. My windows music editing software kept crashing my PC so I thought I would try to use my Mac for music editing instead. I've had Mac's for 6 years but there's never been any software that compared to windows verions. Unfortuneately, this is still true. This program is unable to do the simplest tasks of moving the clips around in the field. A simple click, hold and slide of the mouse should move the item but no. You have to completely cut and paste until you get the correct placement. Far too time consuming. Then I needed to manually fade parts of the clips to blend together but this is not possible either. I was told in a prompt email reply to my questions that the program doesn't do those two tasks. I'm not sure why anyone would use this program and what would they do with it if you can't move clips and fade them? I basically wasted my money. Don't waste yours.
