Convert 32 bit wav files and replace

Wed Jul 28, 2021 1:13 pm

I have a folder that contains sub-folders and thousands of samples of 16, 24 and 32 bit files.

I want to convert the 32 bit to 24 bit and replace the original file with the same filename.

Any suggestions of apps that will allow this as a one step batch process?

I was hoping for something that would scan the folder and only convert the 32 bit files and leave the 24 and 16 bit untouched. This will convert and replace all files to 24 bit, which might not be a bad thing if I can't find another app to do it. Cheers

One (easy) workaround to that would be to perform the comversion on a copy of the original folder...
