FINALLY A STABLE AUDIO CONVERTER!!! - I really want to spread the word about this app! Not only is the coolness of the icon important to me (he he), but this App has completely eliminated my dependence on MAX (Mac Audio Converter) that is free (you can find it just about anywhere online). MAX is great and all, but SO unstable—especially when converting OGGs or any lossless type. And the worst part about it is that it crashes if it ever has an encoding problem! PAC handled all of my weird and wacky files (from AAC to WAVs) and converts them FASTER than anything I've ever used before. Seriously, I'm so happy about this right now! I work as a sound technician for a Game company whose Game Engine only accepts OGG files. PAC is by far my favorite audio converter tool now, and for just $9.99—how could I not indulge?? I can't say anything about Real Audio or anything like that, because frankly I just don't use those random audio types. But this thing is solid for Apple Lossless, FLAC, and OGG from any sort of audio file type. Bravo, Mark! Thanks for making such a solid and affordable application!
META DATA EDITOR ? - I purchased to edit Metadata only, not convert/encode files. Changing Metadata can only be done if you encode/convert your files. Marketing language is misleading. You should be able to edit Metadata independent of the conversion/encoding function. :(

Works as advertised! - Simple to set up, then click a button and boom — all your files get converted. $10 is kinda steep for a one-trick pony, but if you want to convert a lot of files without a lot of fuss, it’s worth it.
Error Log issues - Just purchased this app and it is posting an error log whenever I try to encode my mp3’s to any format. I chose the files to go to its original source folder and a small screens pop out asking me to Allow Write Access. I select the Allow Write Access option and I get another screen that tells me that I do not have any write access permission. I am using a Seagate external Goflex to store my music. The Seagate also contains the music that I want to encode. Please help. This is my second day trying to use this app with no luck. Any suggestions would be great.
locks up - Just bought this and tried to convert audio from a CD to a file. It kept locking up and I would have to force quit. Never got it to work convertering directly from a CD in superdrive.
Does Not Support SDII to .wav Conversion - Though stated as a supported format, Sound Designer II to .wav fails to load source samples for conversion. The company, MarkVApps won't respond to multple emails and has no support documentation. Buyer–beware from this developer. Dissapointed Apple’s policy allows apps to be sold without checking if they even function as stated in the documentation. I will never purchase third-party software through the iTunes store again. Professional Apple user since 1992!
Crash as hell, fix it !!!!!!!!!! - I'm a professionnal audio engineer, I have over 2tb of sounds I needed to convert to m4a lossless format. The software works a bit at the start, but quickly crash in many ways. Error log is full, the application locks and crash… even worse, now the app doesn't want to encode anything !!! crazy… I think the developper didn't check the compatibility with huge sound librairies and a multi folders… It's really a pain to make it work. I'm really disappointed because the functionnalities are good, multi threading is working.
