It’s that time of year again, so without further ado here’s the Mac Audio Guy Top Ten Mac Audio Products For 2009:

  1. Logic Studio 9 $499

    A truly awesome Pro Digital Audio Software suite for just under 500 smackers. (half the price of the previous version!!!)
    Makes Pro Tools look like Poor Tools. This software is the single best software for audio and music production on the Mac (or any other platform)… period.

  2. Zoom H4N $299

    The H4 was great, the H4N is mind blowing! The H4 was plastic and toylike which just didn’t look like a professional audio recorder, all that has changed. The new H4N is a rugged pro piece of gear. the perfect location recorder for digital cinematography or any other form of field recording. 4 Tracks, built in high quality mics, XLR, 1/4″ and Mini inputs, SDHC cards, and it’s an audio interface!

The Mac Audio Guy website was attacked by a hacker and due to the the code injection attack The Site was de-listed by Google and the site traffic went essentially to zero. This made me do some soul searching as to whether maintaining this site was really providing a valuable service and if it is worth the effort to maintain. I decided to carry on.
I did a rebuild of the entire site and fortunately was re-listed by Google. I am really busy with several video projects and I am in the process of building my video business and launching the Jay Shaffer Video website, but I am dedicated the getting some more content up here on Mac Audio Guy. and I plan to have a new Monitor Podcast out by tomorrow. Thank you for sticking with the site through this rebuilding process, and I hope to continue to bring valuable information to the Mac audio and music community.
