Audiocon (was Audio Unit Converter)... Ever needed to delay sound sources in a multi-channel setup or wanted to work out the delay between the close mic on a snare and the overheads? How about finding out the frequency of a problematic bass note or converting hexadecimal MIDI strings into their decimal equivalent?

This widget allows you to effortlessly convert between many common units that you may encounter while working in a studio or live sound situation. The conversion units in the current version are:

  • Distance (m) - Time (ms) - Frequency (Hz)
  • Time (ms) - Samples (@ 44.1KHz, 48KHz, 96KHz, 192KHz) more...

What's New

Version 2.0:
  • Added more sample rates in Time-Samples conversion.
  • Added dotted and triplet notes in BPM-Note Duration conversion.
  • Added distance in feet to Distance-Time-Frequency conversion.
  • I've also managed a massive reduction in number of lines of code! Nothing any of you will notice from a user point of but it made me happy.


Mac OS X 10.4 or later

Haven't tried this yet, but I usually keep Dashboard entirely off on my audio workstations. Any chance of a stand-alone app?

How about:

Sound Values (Unit Converter)


AudioCalc and SoundCalc are taken. I actually don't have a problem with the current name, but what about AudioNumerator?

Nice widget and all, but I second previous speaker's suggestion about changing the name of this widget.

I believe about 98% of all Mac users who are working with audio on the Mac, will think that this is a tool for converting between AU, VST, RTAS, MAS, etc. formats (or something like that). I.e. it's confusing.

But thanks otherwise! Nice and useable widget.

Hmmm - and there I was thinking that this could convert plugins between Audio Units, VST and MAS...

I suggest changing the name of this!

Those were my initial thoughts too.

A 35kb replacement for FXPansion's VST-AU? No such luck...
