MediaHuman Audio Converter

1.9.6.9
09 May 2019

Simplified audio-file conversion.

Overview

MediaHuman Audio Converter was designed specially to simplify as much as possible the process of audio conversion. At the same time, it gives you an opportunity to adapt it to your needs. It has predefined profiles for such formats as MP3, AAC, AIFF, WMA and you can create yours.

Using this audio converter you can extract audio tracks from video files. It supports the most common video formats, such as MP4, AVI, MKV, 3GP, MPEG, WMV and many others. All you need to do is to add video file and specify output audio format. If video contains several audio tracks, so you will have an opportunity to choose the one you need.

One of the coolest features is the ability to split lossless files using information provided in .cue file. It also supports batch conversion, allowing you to add several files for conversion--and take a break while they are converted.

I'm a long-time and regular user of XLD and have come to appreciate its features and versatility. I've come to depend on it for yielding the best possible audio results. I was recently asked my opinion of MediaHuman Audio Converter for compressing flac to AAC/m4a. So I did some A/B comparisons. The results were rather dramatic. For comparison I use Spek, as well as the Plot Spectrum feature in Audacity. True to form, XLD yields audio spectrum results that are as close to the original flac as one could hope for (btw, this is only possible if you compress to AAC - mp3 isn't capable of that). The conversion with MH yields results which would lead one to believe it's actually using an mp3 codec instead of AAC, with the sharp 20kHz cutoff characteristic of mp3. If you plot spectrum of the vast majority of iTunes Store purchases you'll find that the spectrum extends to a minimum of 21kHz, and many extend to 22kHz. Granted, the human ear can't hear above 20kHz anyway, and that was the original rational used by the standards bodies when they came up with mp3 in 1993 in the first place. For that reason mp3 filters everything above 20kHz. But it was long ago discovered that the original thinking was flawed because it doesn't take into spacial characteristics (sound stage) and high frequency harmonic distortion, etc. Part of the reason AAC sounds better than mp3 is it has superior audio spectrum. AAC is a lossy format, but nearly as lossy as mp3. MH eliminates that AAC advantage altogether by, apparently, imposing its own 20kHz filter on AAC conversions, and I can't condemn that in strong enough words. Regardless of how nice the user interface and how easy it is to use, I won't be using or recommending it. For those who are still compressing to mp3 (which is a really foolish thing to do in this day and age -- mp3 was abandoned years ago by the standards bodies in favor of AAC because of mp3's mediocre performance characteristics), MH might be a simple and easy to use option. But again, you really shouldn't be compressing to mp3 in the first place, unless you're one of the few who still has an "mp3 player" that doesn't support AAC.

Needs at least three basic functions to compete with XLD and Max. Other apps do these, too, but XLD and max are free like MHAC. 1) multiple output formats in one batch/process - I almost always convert to two formats. 2) results be folder formatted - e.g. files end up in Artist/Album or however user wants, including a folder for each format. 3) select folder and not files - I often want to convert several folders at once. Best would be to select these folders (with your app knowing only to add the audio format files) and not have to drill into each folder and then need to select the files themselves - talk about a PITA!).

Absolutely amazing bit of software and my ultimate choice for converting my audio files. Never had any problems. could be a nicer, more modern UI but thats not very important, especially when its free! Thank you sooo much guys! I don't review stuff but had to leave one for this. Definitely recommended :D

Why don’t they put their products' version numbers in the Get Info like nearly all other developers do? Annoying.

I am having much better luck Converting a single Flac file and Cue Set to Separate Track mp3s with this Client MUCH better than X Lossless Decoder and xAct. XLD Transcodes the first 10 files and then fails for the rest. xAct does beanz. This app seems to work GREAT!!! Too bad it doesn't Transcode to mp4s or Apple .

Thanks for sharing your experiences.
And program supports conversion to MPEG-4 Audio (M4A). To convert select AAC profile (AAC is codec used in M4A).
And Apple lossless is ALAC profile.

In version 1.9.5.1 we have changed encoding engine for AAC format for better alternative. Can you compare results now?

In MH, a Fraunhofer FDK-AAC codec is used. And yes, it has a cut-off at exactly 20 KHz. It's because it emphasises on encoding the frequencies you can ACTUALLY HEAR. It does not waste the precious bits (in a limited bit-rate) to encode signals for dogs and bats.
All the spatial characteristics, sound stages and harmonic distortion is just a blabla for audiofools. There is actually no such thing. For example, you CAN NOT distinguish which musical instrument is playing a tone if it's above ~8 KHz, because the next harmonic frequency is 16 KHz and you probably can't hear that, not to mention the next one after that (24 KHz) - thus you can't hear the "timbre". And I'm talking about listening to actual musical instruments in real (not through a computer)
It's just FACT.
FDK-AAC is one of, if not the best AAC encoders. It's good MH uses it.
You don't listen to music by LOOKING at spectrum graphs, so you can't discuss quality of a sound file that way. Why don't you do A/B testing by actual LISTENING. I bet you wouldn't hear any difference in a FLAC file and, say, 256kbps AAC file compressed by MH.
So, there is nothing wrong in cutting off at 20 KHz, and using the precious bandwidth on a rather useful signal. It's a good thing. All in all, you're going the lossy way. If it bothers you, listen to FLAC. But please, never ever discuss audio quality by WATCHING graphs. If you want to watch, go to the cinema or a gallery.

This application is easy enough to use, however it needs more conversion types, for example, it can not handle the AIFC file format that is common to OSX.
