Fission has been in development since 2006, with versions for Mac OS X 10.4 (!) and higher. Below, you can see screenshots of Fission through the years.

We first unveiled Fission in September 2006. It was built to be a companion to our recording tools. After making recordings, users often wanted to do simple editing tasks, such as cropping audio down or adjusting volume levels. Fission was built to cater to those tasks.
Fission 1.5 modified very little visually, but one notable change was the renaming of the “Cut” command to “Remove”. This was done to better accommodate the app’s new “Cut”, “Copy”, and “Paste” abilities for moving audio around.
Fission 2 was released on September 17, 2012, just one day shy of the sixth anniversary of the original release. This update overhauled and modernized the interface, and included a second (Dark) color theme.
In Fission 2.5, the app’s Dark theme was overhauled to bring it in line with MacOS’s Dark Mode. Also shown is Farrago’s “Quick Tour”, which provided users with an overview of the product on first launch.
