Icon Audiocorder 5.4.1

First, it can work like a standard tape audio recorder. You simply click on the start button to begin sound recording, and the stop button to end recording. You can even click on a single button to stop the current recording, and start the next. Perfect for manually breaking an entire album or CD into individual tracks.
You can have each sound recording stored in a separate file, or they can all be sequentially stored in one file.
Second, Audiocorder works like a VCR - you can program when it should start and stop recording. You can also perform a timed recording - tell Audiocorder to record for so many seconds.
Third, Audiocorder can work like a VOX (voice operated) audio recorder. This allows you to set the volume that the sound must reach to begin recording, and the volume at which it should end recording, eliminating dead air when there is no sound.
It also allows you to set the trigger length for the start and stop values, which helps you to eliminate recording short bursts of sound or ending the recording process during a short pause (such as in normal speech).

AudioSlicer is a Cocoa GUI application that finds all silences in an audio file and allows you to split it into several smaller audio files and to name/tag them properly. For now only MP3 is supported but other audio formats may be added in the future. While most other tools doing this split automatically according to certain criteria, AudioSlicer shows you all silences within a certain range of duration. You can then listen to the silence - well, to the audio before and after the silence really - and then you decide if you want to split there. The splitting is done without loss, there is no decoding and re-encoding of audio data taking place.

icon Mad 1.0

Mad is a high Quality Open-Source Audio encoder Library. It encodes mp3, mp2 and others to aiff or cdda and others. This is particulary interesting, if you want to edit a mpeg file in quicktime or import an mpeg into FCP or DVD-Studio. Due to reasons only known by Apple, Quicktime wont let you edit a muxed mpeg, also export of a muxed mpeg to another movie format is impossible. So, what you have to do is: demux the mpeg into its audio and video-Streams, then Convert the audio (most times mp2 format) to aiff. Export the Video to mpeg4. Then again make a Quicktime movie with sound by using the "add scaled" option of Quicktime pro. Afterwards save the movie either self contained or with dependencies. You then are able to edit it with any quicktime aware application. This is where mad is needed - convert the mp2 to aiff.
For demuxing use tools like

MPEG Streamclip

Icon Max 0.9.2

Max is an application for creating high-quality audio files in various formats, from compact discs or files.
When extracting audio from compact discs, Max uses the error-correcting power of cdparanoia to ensure the true sound of your CD is faithfully extracted.
Once the audio is extracted, Max can generate audio in over 20 compressed and uncompressed formats including MP3, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, AAC, Apple Lossless, Monkey's Audio, Speex, AIFF, and WAVE.
If you would like to convert your audio from one format to another, Max can read and write audio files in over 20 compressed and uncompressed formats. For many popular formats the artist and album metadata is transferred seamlessly between the old and new files.
Max leverages open source components and the resources of Mac OS X to provide extremely high-quality output. For example, MP3 encoding is accomplished with LAME, Ogg Vorbis encoding with libVorbis, FLAC encoding with libFLAC, and AAC and Apple Lossless encoding with Core Audio. Many PCM conversions are also possible using Core Audio and libsndfile.

- High - Quality Playback Pure Vinyl applies an extremely accurate inverse - RIAA vinyl correction curve in real-time during playback. Your music is reproduced as accurately as possible, by eliminating the distortion and frequency response errors of analog based vinyl EQ correction hardware.
- Recording Pure Vinyl was designed specifically for creating high-resolution, archival quality transcriptions of your precious vinyl, at sample rates up to 192 kHz (or higher). Pure Vinyl automatically can downsample and mirror to CD or DVD-A formats during recording, for digital jukebox use.
- "Revolutionary" Editing / Exporting Pure Vinyl uses the "scratch" style, grab-and-spin metaphor employed by professional DJs, with "needle drop" track cueing. It's an intuitive, fun way to assign track markers - a potentially tedious task with linear-style waveform editors. After editing, individual tracks automatically can be extracted and exported from the original file. -
Peak Detection / Normalization / Pop and Click Removal Pure Vinyl incorporates features to streamline this tedious (but ultimately rewarding) task. The built-in peak finder and waveform inspector is useful for setting proper normalization levels.
