mp3 to wav (a little app written in Objective-C)


Just knocked together a little app to batch convert selected MP3 files in iTunes to WAV format.

Seems to work pretty well so far.

When the app launches click the button to select the “Output Directory” of the converted files.

Then hit the “Go!” button.



I was looking for an easy way to batch convert selected tracks in my iTunes library to WAV format, and have them export into a directory (for later use in Final Cut Pro). I came across some Applescripts that would do the conversion within iTunes, but in the end wasn’t really what I was after. I started writing something in Python but then figured it would be a great opportunity to give it a go in Obj-C. It took half a day and I learnt a lot in the time it took to put it together.Hopefully people out there can find a use for the little app, or use the XCode project to build something better!


iTunes must be open and the tracks you want to convert must be selected

*Only tested on Mac OS X 10.6.7



App: MP3toWAV (471 downloads)

Xcode Project: mp3towavXcodeProj (471 downloads)



Built using XCode and ObjC. I needed the following to talk to iTunes via OBJC:
