Tools I use for audio/video downloading, media conversion and audio editing

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/07/03

A friend asked me what tools I use for downloading media, converting it to various formats (including audio extraction) and audio editing.

It is a surprisingly short list:

Most of it runs out of the box on Mac OS X/MacOS/OS X, as I’ve moved there form Windows for most of my day to day access to systems (there is a great set of Microsoft Remote Desktop in the app store: [Archive.isMicrosoft Remote Desktop 8.0 on the Mac App Store and [Archive.isMicrosoft Remote Desktop 10 on the Mac App Store; I like the first one better).

Audacity shortcuts

Shortcuts make Audacity life a lot easier. For keyboard shortcuts, Mac users use Command (⌘) instead of Ctrl.
