MINNETONKA, Minn. – May 24 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Minnetonka Audio Software ships AudioTools(TM) Batch Pro(TM), an out-of-the-box application that will revolutionize the way audio assets are managed and processed. Batch Pro is the industry’s first fully automated processing tool for audio assets.

(c) Send2PressBatch Pro is a flexible, easy to use, and powerful tool for editing, converting, transcoding, encoding, and applying plug-ins to sets of audio files in a batch mode. Users specify input files, configure a chain of processors, set parameters for each processor and run the job.

All files are automatically processed and placed in the specified output location. Batch Pro provides integrated access to vintage analog processors, external digital processors, and VST plug-ins both stereo and surround, including Minnetonka’s SurCode(TM) for Dolby(R) Pro Logic(TM) II VST plug-in. Currently available on OSX through Certified Partners and resellers, Windows and client/server versions are planned for later this year.

“Batch Pro was designed as the first step in a structured audio workflow in answer to our clients and colleagues who are frustrated with the cost in time, money and resources associated with traditional file-processing solutions,” said Steve Clarke, Director of Marketing at Minnetonka Audio Software. “It’s been rigorously tested by the industry’s best and brightest. We’re so confident in this product that we’re offering the first year of support (including upgrades) free through June 30.”

“Managing content efficiently and effectively is essential in every media organization. Audio production departments manage large numbers of audio files, requiring different file formats, sample rates, compression formats, and processing requirements – often by hand with its attendant quality control issues. AudioTools Batch Pro solves these problems perfectly.”

$1,495 (USD) retail.
