Monkey Tools have released Sound Grinder Pro which they are describing as the best waveform editor and batch-processor combination ever available.
Hereâ€™s what they have to say about it in their own wordsâ€¦
Building on the success of Sound Grinder, we have created Sound Grinder Pro to meet the advanced needs of the production community. From advanced metadata and file support to the new waveform editor, you will save yourself a significant amount of time in editing and processing tasks, and with full support for both Intel and PPC processors, you can be assured that your results are fast, efficient and rock solid!
Sound Grinder Pro was also built as a companion to your DAW workstation with advanced naming, metadata processing, and drag-n-drop importing into Pro Tools or other DAW software. We invite you to try Sound Grinder Pro today and see how it can make a difference in your production environment! Waveform Editing
With its efficient design, you will quickly find your way around the editor, saving time in your editing tasks. Work with fades, loops and markers with an intuitive interface. You can also edit multi-channel audio and customize the editing environment to your liking. Use the unique waveform overview to quickly navigate the audio and locate edits. Create and name regions for easy separation and exporting. Perform actions such as Normalize, Auto-Region, Auto-Trim, Apply Plugins, Change Sample Rate and much more. Plug-in Processing
Batch-process your audio files through your favorite AU and VST plug-ins. Create a custom pipeline, preview your results before processing and create presets or Droplets to process your files with simple drag-n-drop. High Quality MP3 including MP3 Surround
Sound Grinder Pro includes the powerful MP3 codec from Thomson/Fraunhofer. This new codec offers pristine conversion that is a must-have for audio production today. You can also create mono, stereo and 5.1 surround files in the MP3 format. In addition, we include the LAME MP3 codec for those die-hard producers to get the right compression for the job. Download the demo and hear the incredible clarity you can achieve with this new codec. Metadata Processing
Todayâ€™s content producer needs the ability to edit metadata data quickly and in large batches. To meet that need, we have included several powerfully efficient metadata tools. Copy the metadata from one file or move metadata from one tag to another, all in a single batch process. Additional Processing

Droplets: Create droplets for those repetitive tasks. Then simply drag and drop assets and they will be processed with your custom settings.
