Fast, Efficient and Rock-Solid
Sound Grinder provides many features that help relieve the frustrations of processing audio assets. With advanced programming and well thought through processing, we are confident that you will find Sound Grinder to be the fastest, most efficient, and rock solid conversion utility you have ever used.
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 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 AppleВ® Quicktimeв„ў architecture. This includes the ability to read files through Quicktime components such as the Flip4MacВ® Windows MediaВ® component, and others.
Universal Binary Support
Sound Grinder is a Universal Binary running 100% native on both Intel and PowerPC microprocessors.
