Monkey Tools has announced the release of Sound Grinder Pro. As the "big brother" to the popular batch-processor, Sound Grinder, Sound Grinder Pro adds many advanced features to simplify the tedious tasks that cost industry professionals significant amounts of time and money.
One of several features is Sound Grinder Pro's Waveform Editor. This new editor provides multi-channel editing, an enhanced overview for file navigation, auto-regioning, advanced actions, AU and VST plug-in processing all with a simple and yet powerful user-interface. Actions include Auto-Trim, Normalize, Auto- Gain, Change Sample Rate, Resample, Swap Channels and more. Add to that sample level editing and user-interface customization, and you have one of the most feature-complete editors on the market today. Sound Grinder Pro also provides the ability to process your files with the FhG MP3 and MP3 Surround codec from Thomson/Fraunhofer and the popular LAME codec. Sound Grinder is unique in providing both MP3 codecs equipping the end user with the ultimate flexibility in creating MP3 assets.
With today's digital music boom, metadata has become a vital part of music production. Sound Grinder Pro provides many metadata batch-processing features. Copy metadata from a single file to be applied to all files, move metadata from one metadata field to another, or simply change the metadata across multiple assets in a single edit.
"The core of any audio production is the processing of audio assets, and Sound Grinder Pro was designed to handle those daily tasks in a fast, efficient, and rock solid manner" explained Drayson Nowlan, Principal Manager at Monkey Tools, LLC. "From Droplets and Rapid Convert, to metadata batch- processing you will immediately realize the speed and efficiency this new product offers."
A demo is also available for download on the Monkey Tools website providing a complete overview and these and other powerful features.
