TwistedWave 365: The Swiss Army Knife of Media


We had already talked about TwistedWave, which is now paid and available as an online application if you go through the publisher’s website. In our opinion, this is a very bad solution because if for some reason you find yourself without an internet connection, you won’t be able to use the application. Fortunately, on the Apple App Store, you will find TwistedWave 365 is at $99/year. Here is a list of everything you can do with it:


  • Very fluid, even with very large files
  • Unlimited undo / redo history, happens instantly


  • No duration limit other than the available storage
  • Up to 32 bit / 192 kHz audio if your audio interface supports it


  • AudioUnit and VST effects
  • Precision Time Stretching & Pitch Shifting technology licensed from ZTX
  • Normalize to a target peak, RMS or LUFS level
  • Noise reduction
  • Generate tones
  • Speech synthesis
  • Sample rate conversion (Uses SoX for the best sound quality)
  • Reverse. Play the file backwards, mostly for fun!

And many more available with Apple’s built-in AudioUnit effects:

  • Reverb
  • Delay / echo
  • Distortion
  • Peak limiter to amplify audio without causing distortion
  • Equalizer (graphic or parametric)
  • Dynamics processor, can be used as a compressor or a noise gate
  • More…


  • Automatically detect silences in your audio file
  • Delete silences or place markers
  • Split the file with the “Split by Markers…” function
  • Replace silences with room tone with the “Special Paste” function


  • Create a batch script with any of the effects available in TwistedWave
  • Batch process a couple of files, or a whole folder structure recursively
  • Process multiple files at once in order to take advantage of multiple CPUs


  • Start recording from another room
  • Start and stop audio playback
  • Place markers

SPEECH RECOGNITION (additional purchase), VIDEO SYNCHRONIZATION (additional purchase)

MANY FILE FORMATS SUPPORTED: AAC, AIFF, AIFC, AU, Ambisonic Audio, CAF, FLAC, MP2, MP3 (Encoded with the LAME MP3 encoder for the best quality), MP4, M4R, M4B, M4A (AAC or Apple Lossless), Ogg Vorbis, OPUS, SD2, VOX, WAV, WavPack, Wave64, WMA

Powerful audio editing functions, it’s a DAW application that will recognize any source connected to your Mac, manage VST and Apple effects, and includes a tag editor, allowing your broadcast to be displayed on current FM or digital tuners.

We tested the production features for a broadcast and found it to be as simple and efficient as Sound Forge Pro. We only regret that the interface is as austere as Audacity’s.

Therefore, it is an excellent alternative to Sound Forge Pro 3.0, which is no longer available on Mac, and is highly appreciated by radio and television stations for its simplicity in editing and various possibilities (effects and sound manipulation). It is as easy to use for live recording as it is for editing. Recommended by the Bayou Blue Radio editorial team for both producers and journalists, it is the most powerful and practical tool for media on Mac.
