BofA's Audio Utility

Audio Utility is the multifunctional program consists of :

  1. Front-end for LAME ( and Ogg Vorbis © by Michael Smith ( LAME is one of the fastest high quality MP3 encoders and it provides a lot of advanced options. Ogg Vorbis is a new audio format, it's audio processing engine differs from MP3's. Vorbis have no advanced options, only basic parametres are ajustable, but it produces top quality audio files. LAME and Ogg Vorbis are Free and Open Source. But there is a little problem : both of them are the Multi-Platform Encoders so they come as command line utilities. This problem can be solved by Audio Utility - it provides GUI ( Graphical User Interface ) to help You.
  2. ID3 Tag Editor. ID3 tags stores different information about MP3 file such as Title, Artist, Album and so on. Audio Utility provides reading/writing ID3 Tags : ID3v1 and ID3v2.
  3. File Renamer. Not only renames files using Tag Data but also creates the directory structure ( using user mask )
