    • Many of the same features built right in Guest • Jan 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Easy to use for non-specialists. Guest • Aug 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • Easy to use and stable. Auto noise reduction is an excellent feature not available in Audacity. But an equally missed feature is "Truncate Silence" that is found in Audacity. srinath1234May 2018 • 0 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Perfect for MAC users! Audacity is a WIN program adapted for mac, but is still to "win 98 style". I had troubles with the mic in audacity. Oceanaudio is very easy to use, the scrolling with the magic mouse works perfectly, it saves in so many audio formats (without putting the extension at the end, like in audacity). yesdinoFeb 2018 • 0 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • As opposed to Audacity's mess of a ui this is quite nice. Has all the effects I needed. Looks good even in a KDE environment. Cknight70Mar 2018 • 0 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
