Sound Grinder has worked flawlessly every time I’ve used it. This program has made delivering large catalogs of music to clients in whatever format they want a non-issue. You guys rock!!!
I just purchased Sound Grinder yesterday and I would like to thank you for such a great product. It's already saved me weeks of editing work! Absolutely amazing piece of software which I can't believe I've never used before.
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.
Sound Grinder includes two popular options providing instant conversion within the macOS 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 macOS 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.
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.
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.
