r8brain is designed to perform high quality sample rate conversion of WAV files. For example, if your WAV file was recorded or saved as 48000 (or 96000) file and you need it to burn onto a CD you will likely need to convert it to 44100 before that. This utility helps you to perform such conversions. r8brain also supports batch processing which is essential if you need to transfer all your project's audio data from one sample rate to another.

I'm not sure where to post this, but I *think* r8brain Free 1.9 might modify the registry here:


With [Directory] being the location of the file I converted.

Maybe someone can convert a .wav's sample rate and double check?

re: Ancient Images comment -

On the subject of quality, see the test results at http://src.infinitewave.ca/

r8brain compares very favourably to many of the other SRCs tested.

This program is amazing, especially for freeware.

According to RegFromApp it doesn't write to the registry.

I use r8brain and I like it a lot...but I'm not sure it's truly portable: according to RegShot v1.8.2 it makes a total of 81 changes to the registry (Keys added: 13; Values added: 46; Values modified: 22).

Can anyone else confirm this?

This batch audio resampler is great for converting 48khz .wav files to 44.1 for converting to mp3 or burning to an album. And I hear it's got even better quality than SSRC!
