Although sound files are pretty simple in their nature, bringing modifications to them can be quite difficult, especially if you intend on changing the overall tempo, pitch or sample rate. In addition, you may also require them in a different format, since some extensions are not supported across all the available music players.
Create loops and manipulate the overall sound of your files
Song Surgeon is a software utility designed to provide you with a diverse set of tools you can use on your music files, in order to change their tempo, pitch or zoom. Furthermore, you can also play them and view their underlying waveform, as well as control the overall volume, slow down the playing speed and disable individual sound channels.
The loop creation utility, on the other hand, enables you to edit only part of the document, by manually selecting the section you want to manipulate. Once selected, you can change the pitch and tempo, choose the preferred equalizer settings and adjust the playback parameters. In addition, you can enter a custom label for every created loop, in order to differentiate between them.
Convert files in batch mode and rip CDs
Sometimes, your music files might come with an unusual extension, which could cause some media players to be unable to render them. To get around this problem, you can use Song Surgeon's built-in conversion capabilities and export the desired documents under new formats, including MP3, WAV, AAC or WMA.
In addition, you can also rip music tracks directly from CDs, in order to save the files on your computer. The utility even comes with an automatic naming feature, which can use the CD text or an online database to retrieve the names of the tracks. The output format and location are also customizable and you can choose to overwrite already existing documents.
An easy-to-use audio editor
In the end, Song Surgeon makes it very simple to perform a wide array of operations on your sound files, as well as convert them to other formats or change their tempo and pitch. Thus, audio manipulation becomes easier and it can be done even by inexperienced users, thanks to the intuitive and easy-to-use interface.
