2 Things turned me off this software. 1 - Machine specific licensing sucks, I go through machines like some people go through shoes. I'm not paying for a new license for each machine upgrade I do. 2 - The software is too unpredictable. Works on some file types and does nothing with the other half. WTH is with the constant unknown updates and the crazy dates instead of some version number?

No support. Not responding. Very few options. No file splitting.

Does not copy the cover artwork and other metadata. Therefore worthless.

It copies some of the metadata, but lyrics and artwork are lost. I still use my really old version since this new version won't run on my machine. I keep the old file and copy the art and lyrics.

After reading all the complaints I will stick with XLD! It's free and very well supported. It also does not delete metadata.

Where's the update for us that already paid? Obviously another developer that hopes to rake in the software fee twice... BUYER BEWARE!

Definitely. I complained to the developer () but he didn't respond. I guess this is his way of turning his back on his existing users. He used to be very responsive about fixing bugs. I always seemed to find them just with simple MP3 conversions.

I used this for several years. As I recall, he charged for EVERY update. He also charged to use SoundConverter on a different Mac, even if it were removed from the previous Mac, e.g., when I upgraded from the original flatscreen iMac to a 20" iMac G4.

The updates, when it was being supported by the developer directly, were frequent and often. And I didn't pay for them. But I did have to buy it again when I moved from a G4 to a MacPro. The older version still works on my MacPro so I still use it, even though other tools are faster using multiple cores. The latest version didn't run on my system so I asked for my money back.

I've used this in the past, it works very well. Now I have switched to Amerisoft Video Converter, which does video as well. But SoundConverter will convert some pretty obscure file types.

Price is $19 not $14 as the MU site says. Tried to convert AIFF-C (from an iPhone recording -- the single most popular field recording device in the history of humanity) to an mp3 -- the most common portable audio format... you get the point. Doesn't work -- complains that it cannot complete. On may files, takes you to a troubleshooting site that is ineffective. When you purchase, the page they attempt to have paypal open after your transaction completes does not exist on their server. It's just a crappy product, stay away!

If you, developer, please fix the "Audio Alerts" Preference so it stays unchecked through relaunch; I contacted you about this numerous times and you have not fixed it. I'm getting tired of changing this preference everytime I launch SC. I would like it to stay unchecked. (Snow leopard)

I am doing voice recordings to Garageband and need a way to convert the resulting AAC (m4a) files to 8000Hz, 16-bit, PCM (signed), mono. Simple stuff: Just recording voice for phone system greetings. So I downloaded every WAV converter I could find and gave each one the task of converting the file. Given GEOPROF's authoritative review, I almost didn't bother with SoundConverter, and I did try all of his suggested alternatives. Of all the apps I tried, SoundConverter was the easiest one to configure and use -- once I figured out that signed=PCM. Just drop the file on the window and it instantly spits out the cleanest sounding and SMALLEST file of any of the apps I tested. I can't speak to high-end recordings of music and such, but for my needs SoundConverter was the only tool that got the job done well.

It's always worked for me without issues, though it's a pity to have to buy it for each computer. 14$ for main plus laptop would be much better.
