Page 1 - Stomp Inc.'s Sound Editing Software
MySoundStudio is the second software title we've review from Stomp Inc.
The last product I reviewed was BackUp MyPC and in reviewing it I noticed
a refreshing attention to detail. Does MySoundStudio follow suit? Read on...
If you're familiar with sound editing software, MySoundStudio is a software
package similar to Cool Edit and Sound Forge. If you're not familiar with
sounding editing packages, MySoundStudio does the following:
Multi-track sound editing (with mute & solo functionality)
Read/Write/Edit/Convert WAV & MP3 files
Mixer Control Window (group sounds together, control
Video AVI soundtrack editing
Setting WAV details
Time display of Time, Second, Millisecond, Sample & Frame
Bit Depth: 8 bit, 16 bit
Sampling Frequency: 2,000kHz~192,000kHz
Record while playing
Cue Point and Loop list control
As well as a multitude of effects and handled file formats. More information
about file format handling and audio effects can be at the
MySoundStudio web site
as well as system requirements. For information purposes, I must note that
the PC I used far exceeds the system requirements set forth my Stomp Inc.
The first thing I always cover when I review software is the installation
process and this review will be no exception to the rule. MySoundStudio
installation is about as easy as it gets. I put the CD in and waited a couple
seconds for the autoload screen to show up, clicked install, and then
next a couple times and I was done. I should mention that not all the help
files are installed by default. There is an option to install "Tutorial
Support Files" 1 and 2 (separately).
When it comes to load time, MySoundStudio is no slug either. It loads
quickly and remembers your window preferences as well. The user interface
(GUI) is pretty slick as well. If your resolution is lower than 1024x768
you're going to be hurting in the clutter department but that would be a
problem with most software of this type. In fact, the system requirements
laid out by Stomp state that you need a resolution of 1024x768 or better.
