Snapper is the on-screen waveform that appears as soon as you select a sound file in the Mac Finder. While staying in the Finder, you can grab a part of the waveform and drag it anywhere: into another Finder window to create a new file, into tracks of your editing software, or you can convert it to split-stereo, mp3, mp4 etc. You can extract audio from video, normalize, fade, or shoot the selection up to the cursor of your Pro Tools, Nuendo, Cubase or Logic. All without ever leaving the Mac Finder.
It feels, as one user put it, as if the soundfiles on your Mac are finally open and accessible. You can try that for yourself using Snapper’s 100 day fully functional demo at audioease.com/snapper
