    Switch Audio Converter Issues
    Switch works great on my laptop, but on my G4 tower running 10.4.11, it refuses to encode mp3s. Can't find what the issue is. I'd use a different program, but I can't find one that's simple and doesn't drop tag info.

    Sound Converter is the best I've ever used, having been right watered off with Switch in Tiger. See what you think steve dekorte - projects - shareware - soundconverter.

    Is reconverting audio files conflicted by multi-talking? Does it matter how hard you work your machine while it does it in the background? Or should you give it devoted attention like when you're burning discs?

    The answer to that is in Activity Monitor. With it open, try a sample track to see how much processing power is being used while you're also working other applications, eg. browser.

    A G4 never went past 1.42 GHz, and if you're running hungry applications, eg. Flash-related, then audio conversion might well struggle. I've not noticed lag or crash with Sound Converter with this 1.25 eMac, although it can take a long time to go, for example, from a large .aifc to .mp3.
