Convert or import tracks with any encoder on the fly

OS X 10.8 and later only. Convert all or just the selected tracks of the selected Playlist using your choice of available iTunes encoders, restoring your Preferences-set encoder afterwards. Works with importing selected CD tracks, too.

Additionally, you can:

  • Choose to delete and/or Trash the original tracks and/or files
  • Copy all converted/imported tracks to a new playlist
  • Optionally save AAC encoded tracks as M4B "bookmarkable" and re-add the converted files to the Audiobooks (Books) library

Action shot:

Quick Convert in action

Convert the selected tracks using the AAC encoder, for example. Your default encoder is restored afterwards.
