Audio File Conversion For Macs


Monkey Tools Sound Grinder, an audio conversion utility for Mac OSX, is now in version 3.0 adding Universal Binary support and several new features including ‘Droplets’ for simple drag and drop conversion, support for Quicktime Components such as Flip4Mac Windows Media component, enhanced metadata editing, and more. Here’s the run down of new features in Monkey Tools’ own words:
Universal Binary Support
Sound Grinder is now a Universal Binary running 100% native on both Intel and PowerPC microprocessors.
Enhanced Metadata Handling
Sound Grinder now provides support for even more 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 "File Info" pane, but also in the main "File 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.
Support for Droplets
Sound Grinder now includes a new workflow option called Droplets, which provides an even simpler, yet more powerful way of converting audio. 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.
Under-the-Hood Enhancements and Bug Fixes
Sound Grinder has been significantly upgraded to support the latest OS X technologies with a corresponding enhanced visual look.
