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.

I would rather say that it cost a lot of money. I don't agree though that the price is expensive considering what you get in features and functionality.
I bought my license a long time ago and have nothing but positive experiences since.

However, a price adjustment would be welcome. Specially in this day and age when you even can pick up Logic Pro 9 for 150 euros in the appstore.
The combo audifinder and logic is awesome, and while $70 for audifinder was totally ok against Logics once 1000 euros, it is harder to swallow against today's prices.
The days of expensive audiosoftware are running out. Rather lower price and more sales than high prices and high piracy I guess.
Although in the case of Logic it is of course another way for apple to hook pc users. There is no doubt in my mind that apple went from the expensive and hardware dongle protected Logic 7 to the much cheaper and serialnumber protected Logic 8 in order to give producers yet another reason to go the mac route.
Ok. I'll stop rambling now. Medication time anyway ;P

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.

AudioFinder has been 100% Snow Leopard compatible since 4.9.7. Have not received any tech support emails with 4.9.7 or later in regards Snow Leopard. AudioFinder is built and developed on Snow Leopard exclusively.

I suggest if you have issues, you email for free tech support.
