The best of its class and from an independent developer. It is good to know there are still devs out there who care about what users need and don't just tweak minor things to charge for another update. Sure, there are other less expensive audio tools available, but none, really NONE of them can be compared with this professional product. If you need more than just converting your audio files, give AudioFinder a try.

5.5.6 Released Changes in version 5.5.6 Added caching of Scans and Scan Sets. Last results are auto-saved, simply double click or click the refresh button to rescan. Any Scan or Scan Set Sidebar item can now be dragged to a Sidebar Group for quick access. Added “Make Scan Set” to the “Context Menu. Added a milliseconds option to the Process->Trim and Fade panel. Added the scroll bar back to the Sample Tool on 10.7 and greater for easier navigation of large sounds. Bug fix on Lion and Mountain Lion the Sidebar items imported from Finder’s Sidebar were not properly being restored. Fixed a drawing glitch in the Sample Tool when zoomed into maximum level.

From v1 on this product has been evolved into something very useful. Very handy tool to manage your audio stuff. But a bit expensive imo

AudioFinder and Amadeus Pro are a strong team in my recording studio. Updates are free albeit you can donate to the costs of improving the application (s). I strongly recommend both applications using both ever since they first were issued.

Audiofinder is an excellent application for anyone with a reasonable collection of samples, allowing you to find and edit your library. Works seamlessly with my samples (over 35gb) and handles all sorts of fle typs. Massive depth to the features, definitely worth trying out if you have a sample collection used with Ableton Live, Logic or similar DAW. Hard to imagine working without it.

I personally have mine two favourite: The first one is AudioFinder, the second is Amadeus Pro. AudioFinder is simply Superlative, simpler and more usable Amadeus. Five stars to both, considering the price in favor of Amadeus. Thanks everyone. Maurizio.

Been using this app. for 3.5 years. I produce computer music, with a rather complicated hardware setup, the 'core' of which is an 8 core MacPro and a total of 11 hard drives (samples, scratch, users folder, archive, backup, etc.) AudioFinder is my 'go to' app., the glue that holds my operation together, because it is multifaceted in use and enables me to locate, preview, move, edit, batch process and keep up to date the many audio files (at least 150 gigs worth) I have, and which are spread out over several hard drives and many cd's and dvd's. Developer stays way on top of things. I only wish some of my other audio software was as reliable, efficient and bug free. Not for the dilettante, it is a Glock among 38 specials.

Gets better and better! Simply can't live without it! This application is a must for every Audio Studio, Pro or not! There is nothing that I'm missing. The Interface is getting close to beautiful! I think it's worth twice the price, simply because you get as many codes as you need. Thank you so much!

Also see Sound Miner (www.soundminer.com). Although it is much more expensive, it might suit some users needs better than this program. Then again, maybe not. It's just a tip if you want to look in to alternatives. I wish this app had a separate column where you can edit(view your own file comments. That is one of the most important features missing, which makes it perhaps better for sound designers to use Sound Miner, which gives the users a terrific oversight of their comments/descriptions.

There isn't anything on the market, at any price, that comes near the primary functionality of this app...let alone all the other bells and whistles packed into it. If you are in the business of producing or engineering audio on a Mac, you owe it to yourself to download this and try it out. If it had rollover help, I'd have given it a 5 for Ease of Use.

This is the perfect app. for everyone in the audio business. For me, an engineer/designer in theatre and composing, this app is the only app which works for me. Super easy access to all audio files, samples and sound effects. Thanks for making this app.

I'm not sure how there can not be a review for this program here already since it is very popular among musicians and engineers but here goes; great tool for browsing, managing and even maipulating samples. well worth it. updated (with new features) more frequently than any program I have ever seen!
