I am looking for a simple audio editing tool for OSX, to slice and normalize long live recordings into individual songs. I would prefer a low-cost or gratis solution and ideally one that is in the App Store.
I am playing in a band, and when rehearsing, we just keep a recorder running all the time. Of course, there are a lot of pauses, sometimes we make mistakes and start from the beginning, sometimes we play the same song several times, and listening to the entire rehearsal again is rather boring, so I want to keep just the "gems".
I would like a tool that allows me to
- quickly visually scan the waveform for pauses
- simply cut out individual songs
- normalize them
- save them as individual files
- (possibly compress as MP3 in the process)
The tool should be lightweight and simple. I own and use DAWs such as Logic, REAPER, Ardour and Audacity, but those are overkill for this simple task.
