BarbaBatch 2.5 Simplifies Audio Production for the Internet

MacSourcery and AudioEase, developers of multimedia and professional
digital audio software jointly released version 2.5 of their BarbaBatch
Batch audio processor today.

Designed for fast high quality conversions of digital audio for use in
internet, multimedia and professional production, BarbaBatch 2.5 now
provides users with greater automation and sound processing flexibility.

Described by MacWorld Magazine as, 'the best conversion tool money can
buy', BarbaBatch has been upgraded to allow conversion of just selected
segments of an audio file.

Segment conversion allows users to convert custom 'snippets' of audio
directly into internet savvy formats. Clips from an entire CD collection
can be put on the internet with one click of the mouse.

Other new features include the ability seperately control the fade-in and
fade-out of converted files as well as the conversion from and to of all
flavours of QuickTime audio. Conversion to Macromedia Director compatible
AIFC IMA files is also new BarbaBatch 2.5.

BarbaBatch 2.5 also adds full support for the professional version of
QuickTime 3's Qdesign format. MacSourcery President John Pattenden says the
new features in BarbaBatch 2.5 are in response to customer requests for
greater automation and custom editing features.

"The ability to convert just a snippet of a file makes BarbaBatch ideal for
creating internet ready sample music tracks for artists and online CD
retailers"

"BarbaBatch 2.5's support for Qdesign Pro makes Qdesign conversions twice
as fast and allows fine tuning of key parameters to aid in the creation of
CD quality audio for use on the NET," Mr Pattenden said.

BarbaBatch 2.5 can process audio content stored in virtually any format
including CD audio, QuickTime, Real Audio, MPEG, Sound Designer, AIFF,
AIFCI MA,WAVE, NeXT/SUN and VOX

The QDesign encoder can compress audio files to 1/100th of their original
size while maintaining the quality and integrity of the original audio
file. The Professional Edition compresses files twice as quickly as the
Basic Edition and allows users to improve the character of a sound file.

BarbaBatch has won support from professional users and reviewers who have
valued its user-friendliness and comprehensive features.

Electronic Musician Magazine said BarbaBatch is "Quick and East to use, it
produces great sounding output, and it's the most efficient
batch-processor"

Users can change the file type, sample rate, bit depth, and number of
channels in one pass; add fade-in and fade-out up to five seconds long;
remove extraneous low level sounds through gating; normalize a file; and
employ peak-limiting to optimise sound quality. QuickTime Movie playback is
now supported in three places: batch play, add files, and input dialogs .

Conversion setting "recipes" can be saved and reused and multiple
conversions can be processed in one batch. Detailed log files are also
generated for reliable unattended conversions

A demo version of BarbaBatch 2.5 is available from MacSourcery at

BarbaBatch 2.5 is priced at $395 upgrades from version 2.4 and higher are
free. Upgrades from earlier versions are $50.
