I had some issues with some files, but overall a simple, easy to use tool. However, it, like the Ondesoft product, has priced itself out of the market. It is a one trick pony which puts it into the $10-15 range, not $35.

This has worked most wonderfully for me... that is prior to Adudible coming out with their best sound formate, aax. With that it broke into a billion pieces!

I sent an email requesting support. I received a prompt reply with a suggestion for fixing it. I tried the fix and it didn't work. I wrote back with a detailed and technical report. That was about three weeks past.

Still, I'm waiting for some reply to my last message... And, I remain very disappointed. For US$36.xx I do not believe I am expecting too much!

With the above in mind, I must give the lowest rating I can... if there were a 0.00 rating that would be appropriate.

At this time for converting on-line purchased (Audiable.com) files, the best is Audio Hijack Pro. It requires a bit of a set-up but the end product is equal to or greater than can be obtained by any other method. I highly recommend it!


Yes, Audio Hijack still seems to be the best way to do it. Play the Audible file in iTunes, capture to Audio Hijack (do it overnight with the sound muted), then edit and save to AAC. It's the only way I can play my Audible purchases on my 2nd Gen Shuffles.

still the new version does not work properly.
They fix some old problems, but added new Problems also.

The new Prolem is: when you need to convert a bigger amount of files (aa) and add them to the list, start to convert - until now everything seems to works fine, after converting several files the app hangs (crashes) and so itunes crashes also.

Sorry the app is still in Betaphase
but its worth to keep an eye on it;-)

in the future this app has the potential to be a good app…


for now the soft is beto

the output files are often buggy ore incomplete.
to fix this the developer ask me to slow down the speed of audiobook converter back to single speed…
this means, to convert all my 300 audiobooks takes up to 300 hours - sorry there is a lot of work to do in this app…

does anyone knows a alternative for audible audiobooks?

I highly recommend Audiobook Builder at http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/23162/audiobook-builder It is robust, allows you to define Chapter marks, and many flexible ways of combining or splitting the book, the bitrate, the cover art, etc. Have never had a problem with the output files.

I keep looking at this app, but I too cannot pay $35 for it.

If this was at at reasonable price I would purchase and the author would make more money.

This has been priced so as to give them very little market share when compaired with other software, so here is one person that will not buy.

This tool would be great for converting DRMed files (like those from Audible.com or older iTMS songs) to open formats so you could listen to them anywhere. However, I, too, think the price is too high.

If it were $20, I'd buy it this minute.

Oh, well.

If its on a CD just convert, join and rename the tracks in iTunes. A lot faster than 5x and all in one go.

If they are files, join them in MP3 Trimmer and convert and rename them in iTunes.

Always amazes me how people don't know, and/or misuse, the tools available to them.

It's quiet simple. The prices makes it not worth it in my opinion. Nothing more to say
