    If only this awesome program would be ported to OSX!
    A sorely needed application which OSX lacks.

    Check out SoundDog. Doesn't do the conversions, but plays and displays info about the file.

    Check out Sound Grinder, it provides much of what SoundApp offered and a lot more like normalizing, folder retention and access through the Finder.

    Check out Audacity, a free open-source multi-platform audio editor with plugin support. It won't support anywhere near the variety of file formats that SoundApp does, but it provides a few. With the addition of the LAME library files (also free open source software) MP3 encoding is supported.

    I miss SoundApp on OS X. I haven't seen anything come close to supporting so many different file formats. And SoundApp is much less demanding of CPU power than iTunes for MP3 playback. Those hoping to keep slower PPC hardware useful for as long as possible will especially appreciate the difference.

    Knowing that there haven't been any updates in a very long time and guessing that an OS X version written to the high quality standards we've seen from this developer would take close to a total re-write, I don't expect to see it happen. Even though I don't use this app as often as I once did, I still appreciate it and will always have fond memories of using it. Although iTunes has pretty well replaced it for general music handling, it's support for file conversions should still be quite usable under Classic. I'm not sure if this could be made into a Carbon app, perhaps the developer might consider making this open source and allowing others to use it as a basis for new development. The author certainly has given much time over the years with this app. Thank you!

    I don't like running Classic apps, but when push came to shove, SoundApp came to my rescue.

    I had an .m1a file that just iTunes just couldn't covert to a usable .aif or .wav file, and I wasn't about to purchase another program when I wasn't even sure the new program could do the job.

    Then lo and behold, I found SoundApp and it was able to convert my file properly and for such an amenable price (i.e. free!).

    Although it still hasn't been updated and likely never will for OSX, it does work fine in Classic and has very useful conversion features. To the poster who can see no value in this app (it is free afterall), well try converting an mpeg1 audio file with any other app. Can't be done! This is the only app I know of that can succesfully convert an mpeg1 audio file into a QT compatible AIFF file EVERYTIME. Some other apps in X have this functionality, but IMO are not nearly as stable or reliable.

    I used to use SoundApp all the time, but now that iTunes has clearly outshined it in every category, there's really no need for SoundApp. And it STILL hasn't been updated for Mac OS X, even after the developer said on his webpage to keep checking back for announcements. Still nothing. I don't mind if you decide to discontinue the project or are still working on a new version, but please let us know either way.

    Every Mac user should have this piece of software. I've been using it for quite awhile, and I've found that nothing beats it in terms of stability and playback. I use it to play everything from windows wavs to mp3's and it never skips, even when baried deeply behind other open applications. It's just an amazing piece of freeware.

    An absolute Must-Have if you listen to music files on the mac. And the price is excellent.... Free!!

    I Love the list&loop-play feature... something Quicktime leaves out of it's DLable form. Not to mention you can convert up the whazoo!

    (Note--the music DOESN'T skip unless you manage to freeze the comp. Something Quicktime Also leaves out of the picture...)

    using this file conversion program is painless. Now it is possible for me to download all the great freeware wav files from my favorite flash resource site and use them on my Mac! kudos to the software developer for writing such a wonderful utility.
