BarbaBatch V4 from Audio Ease, is a batch file conversion utility that has long been the go-to conversion software for Mac computer users. The OS X version adds additional file format support, which is already very extensive. Registered users receive the OS 9 version for those situations that require OS 9 compatibility.
The software's accurate sample-rate conversion algorithm, support for high end files like BWF, Sonic Solutions and 32-bit float files, 192kHz sampling rate support and Redbook CD image extraction, has made BarbaBatch an indispensable mastering application.
A wide range of telephony formats are supported. Dynamic compression and sample-rate conversion allows for what is generally considered "low quality" audio to still retain a high level of quality. Automated CD ripping and conversion of audio snippets (with fades applied) to multiple streaming sound formats, make it ideal for web based audio delivery.
Smooth and fast batch capabilities and extensive logging allows tens of thousands of files to be converted to multiple output formats in a single run. This makes the software a very attractive application for computer-game developers.
