Sound file conversion

BarbaBatch is a professional batch sound file conversion program.
- For each file type you can set bit rate (kbits/sec) or number of bits per word up to 64 bits. Samplerates can range from 1000 Hz to 192 kHz.
- Channel processing is flexible : you can mix stereo to mono or vise versa, copy just single channels left or right, create interleaved stereo from split stereo files and vise versa.
- There is a normalizer that normalizes to a user set ceiling, but also a look-ahead gating algorithm with very intuitive controls, and a look-ahead peak limiter that makes your audio blast even through the smallest of speakers. The gate and peak limiters are built to straighten out speech, but are often used on musical material as well.
- Regions from Wave files, DDP IMAGE.DAT files, and...

- Regions from Wave files, DDP IMAGE.DAT files, and Sonddesigner II files can be extracted to separate files
- You can set up the conversion so that it will convert for instance 20 seconds of audio from every input file, starting at second number 15, and creating a 1 second fade in and a 500 msec fade out.
- You can fade in and fade out all file types that can be input to BarbaBatch.
- BarbaBatch can preserve regions, loops markers and time stamps and sampler informations from input to output. It will recalculate Marker loop and region positions when regions are extracted or when samplerate is converted.
- Many supported file types

Bug fix:
Fixed a memory leak in the gain section.

Bug fix:
Fixed a bug in the normalizer and gain section that could render stereo input dual mono.
files BarbaBatch v 4.0.59 May 9, 2012 MacOS X UB
Bug fix:
Sound Designer 1 files have a compatability problem with modern compilers. These files can still be read, but not written.
regions BarbaBatch v 4.0.58 Feb 3, 2012 MacOS X UB
Bug fix:
Solved incompatibility with MacOS 10.4 and 10.5.
input BarbaBatch v 4.0.55 Mar 13, 2009 MacOS X UB
* 4.0.55
o Bug fix:
+ Wave 32-bit float files were interpreted wrong on PowerPC.
+ Broadcast Wave MPEG files had one wrong chunk header.
+ MP3 files could fail to embed ID3 tags.

* 4.0.54
o Bug fix:
+ Pro Tools generated AIFF files were interpreted wrong.
+ Using a non-SATA or IDE boot drive didn't authorizate properly.

* 4.0.53
o Bug fix:
+ QuickTime 7.5.7 (included in MacOS X 10.5.6) has a bug that prevents BarbaBatch from extracting audio data from files in its preferred manner.

* 4.0.52
o Feature:
+ BarbaBatch is now a Universal Binary, increasing performance on Intel Macs.
+ Added preference to recognize number files as split (.1/.2 etc). Default is off.
o Bug fix:
+ Importing QuickTime files and MP3, followed by sample rate conversion gave missing audio blocks in the output.
+ Output file names could carry double file type tag (i.e. .wav.mp3).
+ Added region support to AIFF files, as it is implemented in Pro Tools.
+ A conversion that only converted a snippet of the file didn't work for split stereo and split surround.
+ Reinstated split file name extensions (L)/(R) for old Logic archives.
+ Strictly enforce file name extensions. As OS X uses file name extension almost exclusively for type identification it hardly makes sense anymore to not add the proper extension for a specific type. A side effect of this is name ambiguity when the input folder containts, for instance, files calles "somefile.wav" and "somefile.mov" and both are converted to AIFF. As both outputs would be named "somefile.aif" a duplicate file name error is logged.
stereo BarbaBatch v 4.0.51 Nov 2, 2008 MacOS X PPC
Bug fix:
+ Normalize and gain sections could cause wrapping audio if end level was 0dB.
+ Naming conventions have changed a little: any file that has a fixed type extension will get that by default. The option in the conversion window to extend the file name only works for non-standard extensions.
+ Improved surround file support; there were a few omissions in the last release.
conversion BarbaBatch v 4.0.16 Feb 15, 2005 MacOS X PPC
MPEG I and II now have the option to switch frame padding on or off. This is to support older MPEG decoders, which don't handle wrong frame padding correctly.
download BarbaBatch v 4.0.15 Feb 4, 2005 MacOS X PPC
Bug fix:
Dawn files sometimes have bad size indicators. We ignore them and read the files anyway now.
