First, let me say that Sound Grinder is absolutely one of the best programmed utility applications for the Mac that I have ever purchased. I use it as my audio player instead of iTunes and love it!

Audio batch-conversions have become a daily requirement in a world of different bit and sampling rates. Sound Grinder is the best tool I have found for this task - combining reliability, quality and speed."

"Sound Grinder is a great app... I use it all the time. Converting a one hour show to be compatible with half-a-dozen different content distributors is a hassle... but not so now. Thanks for the simple yet practical application."

Advanced Conversion Options

Sound Grinder was built to become the best audio convertor for those jobs that steal the most time from the creative process. To accomplish this, we have incorporated many features including, folder retention, special naming options, Pull Up/Down sample rates, peak and RMS normalizations, and an intuitive user interface built around a one-window design.


Instant Conversion with Droplets and Rapid Convert

Sound Grinder includes two popular options providing instant conversion within the OS X Finder. The first option is Droplets. Set up your conversion settings, choose "Create Droplet..." from the Preset Action menu and save the Droplet to any location. Now when you drag any file(s)/folder(s) to the saved droplet icon, Sound Grinder will process those files instantly using your specified settings.

The Second option is Rapid Convert. Rapid Convert (available in OSX 10.5 and earlier) is accessed through the Finders Contextual menu items and provides the ability to import assets into a session, or convert using the preset Rapid Convert settings.

Regardless of the option you choose, the process is simple and the result is fast.


Enhanced Metadata Handling

Sound Grinder provides support for several types of metadata for more types of files, including reading and writing the full suite of ID3 tags in AIFF, WAVE and MP3 files. Metadata can now be displayed not only in the "Asset Info" pane, but also in the main "Asset List". Every metadata item can be edited for single or multiple assets by simply OPTION+clicking the edit field. Specific metadata items can be pre-filled for export in the new Metadata Tab in the conversion settings.


Enhanced Quicktime Format Support

Sound Grinder has been updated to take full advantage of all audio formats supported by the Apple® Quicktime™ architecture. This includes the ability to read files through Quicktime components such as the Flip4Mac® Windows Media® component, and others.
