OK... I was surprised when MP3 support was not included with AM1. I'm talking import/playback, not encoding. How could this not be part of AM2? It's so incredibly basic.
Not sure why I would need to explain but I have two major reasons for wanting this "feature":
1 -- Most people have lots of MP3s lying around. I like using a commercial mix as an aid in learning about the application and to test out VST effects. With AM1 I converted a couple files to wav for that purpose. But doing that takes up extra file space & time.
2 -- The more obvious reason. Among other things, this application is intended for use as a live performance tool. Many DJ types out there have libraries consisting of at least some (maybe all) MP3 files.
Why am I the only one bringing this up? I'm amazed no one else has mentioned it. There are countless sound mangling apps out there which can handle MP3s (but don't have the other great features of AM).
