Myna - online audio editor

Recently, we often come across online services that replace us with ordinary software. As a rule, this is a simple similarity to the programs we are used to, while still being accessible from any place where there is Internet. Therefore, to reduce the size or image quality, we no longer need to install Photoshop - we have online alternatives. I was looking for something similar in the realm of sound. And here is what I came across:

image Myna is an online audio editor that allows you to easily download, record and link (mix) audio files on the network, that is, directly in the browser. + Service will include a set of free effects and samples (for non-commercial purposes).

In addition, a very nice interface and at the moment there are no analogues in the network. However, I would like to consider this service in more detail to find out what can make me use it, and what is the other way around.


What I want to do with the online audio editor:

What allows me to do Myna :

What Myna does wrong:

Here it is better to paint not point by point, but to describe the whole situation and the problems that I encountered when I first used it.

The most basic inconvenience is the multitrack mode. Here, where, where, and in the online editor I do not need it. I can’t imagine how I will be able to cut the track into pieces exactly and precisely, so that, say, cut the chorus from there. In normal mode (in track edit mode), this would look more usable. On the other hand, we will lose almost the main features of the service - the possibility of "gluing" samples into the mixdown. And we need it, in the online service, and with libraries that can not be used for commercial purposes? Of course, we can also upload our samples, but this creates unnecessary inconvenience. Go ahead. Let us still use samples, but another problem arose: if we put several samples in a row on the track, if necessary, we could move the group of samples one distance from the beginning / end of the difficulties — there is no provision to drag samples in groups. In this form, libraries can generally be considered unnecessary. To all this, you can add that during use (about 20 minutes), Firefox hung 2 times (once during mixdown).


I am grateful to the developers for this service, despite the fact that it has its flaws. In general, he is able to fulfill the main goals, but I would not waste time on it, because For me personally, it will be easier to install the audio editor on the PC.
