Downloading Bliss 9

9.7.9 has been released Augest 31, 2015. This release fixes some bugs in the new waveform editor Mev9 and AudioTransmuter.

Bliss 9 major programs are: Audio Transmuter, Mev9, and a Digital Recorded. These are not just a replacement for the version 7 Audio Transmuter, but a difference approach using modern program design. I urge all users of Bliss to install both.

NOTE: If you are not using Windows 10, Bliss 9 also requires a one time install of .NET 4.5.2 and this will be installed automatically if needed. However, .NET 4.5.2 is a large install, about 30 minutes. You may wish to install beforehand from Microsoft at .NET 4.5.2 download.

[ Download Bliss 9]  This is release 9.7.9 for both 32 and 64 bit operating systems

Bliss 9 no longer supports any of the windows 95/98 series or XP operating system or Windows 2000. It is tested on Windows 7, 8.1 and Windows 10. It should work on any platform that supports .NET 4.5.2. This is the stable version; there is no beta but you may download previous versions as well as the development releases from here.

Bug tracking can be found here.
