Audiofile, maker of the Sample Manager App for OS X, has released Myriad, a next generation batch processor. Developed with feedback from professional users, Myriad includes modern features, a new workflow for a better user experience, and improved performance for today's demanding audio processing needs.
Myriad sports a redesigned and intelligently organized interface. In addition to significant performance gains, Myriad integrates the Goodhertz Good Dither and Goodhertz Sample Rate Converter.
Over 100 Actions, or automated tasks, are included in Myriad including 20 new Actions and many more improved. Users can also save an unlimited number of custom-configured User Actions. The new "Intelligent Stereo to Mono" Action finds mono sounds in stereo files and converts to mono given a user-chosen threshold.
Myriad provides comprehensive support for Broadcast WAVE metadata, SoundCloud, Dropbox and advanced FLAC and Vorbis conversion options. Myriad also supports compressed files on input allowing AAC, MP3, FLAC, Apple Lossless and more to be added to the File List.
Audiofile has partnered with audio DSP developers Goodhertz - their mastering-grade audio sample rate converter combines sonic performance with speed and efficiency for a nearly ideal frequency response, preserving high frequency content and eliminating aliasing. Goodhertz Good Dither is a custom-tailored noise shaping algorithm that, rather than relying on noisy peaks or drastic high frequency shaping, always remains smooth and natural sounding while preserving every possible detail of the audio.

Myriad retails for US $99.99 and is now available via the Audiofile Store for an introductory price of US $79.99. Myriad supports OS X 10.9 Mavericks, 10.10 Yosemite and 10.11 El Capitan.
