Audio Duper - Dupe can have a very negative connotation.

Audiophoria - I picture a teenagers room with a bong in it.

Halcyone - Too obscure for most folks.


I just want to put my audio onto my computer.
The name myAudio mignt make it sound overly basic and dumbed down though.
As long as the program clearly isn’t, it shouldn’t matter too much.

Halcyone is a great name, but why not name it after the Muse of Music, Euterpe?

Or just keep Max. I like it and it's simple and fast.

if our only choice is one from the poll, Halcyone would be it.

my vote would be to keep Max.
is the name change a must? is Max in the name an option?
since there are always Max variations...
HappyMax, MaxFan, MaxEnc, MaxMin, and oh so many others.

anyway, it's an awesome program, and i'm glad i found it.

I’d like to officially change my vote to Halcyone - gives a clear majority :o)

That’s if confined to the choices on the list.

I agree with the Max ain’t so bad sentiment.
How about MaxTunes, MaxMusic, or MaxAudio?

I suggest a new name for Max: Titration.

The error correction mode used by Max is tedious but accurate, just like a titration.

I voted for Halcyone, because it sounds fun. However, I too would prefer the name Max to stick…

Hello, I really like Max. I would stick with that but here are some suggestions I thought of:

Extract - although this may already be taken and is a little similar to xACT
Eleven - (11) because it creates a 1:1 copy (and 1:1 looks like 11 :D)
Asex - Abbreviation of asexual reproduction where identical genetical (or digital :D) information is recreated.

Starfish reproduce asexually but theres already a OSX app called StarfishX
