Title: AudioWorks 1.0.0-beta1 is now available
Post by: Jebus on 2018-12-11 03:26:36
AudioWorks is an open-source, cross-platform, multi-format audio conversion and tagging module for PowerShell (https://github.com/jherby2k/AudioWorks).

This is my totally cross-platform replacement for PowerShell Audio (https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,107318.0.html), which I released a few years back. It now works on Windows, MacOS and Linux, runs faster, and includes hundreds of other improvements.

I've created a new Wiki entry (http://wiki.hydrogenaud.io/index.php?title=AudioWorks) here as well, and updated the PowerShell Audio (http://wiki.hydrogenaud.io/index.php?title=PowerShell_Audio) entry to indicate that it is end-of-life.

Why PowerShell?

I work in IT. We use PowerShell at work all the time to automate tasks. I'm also an audio enthusiast - I have a huge archive of lossless files that I find myself frequently transcoding into AAC, MP3 etc. with different settings for different devices. Sometimes I want cover art. Sometimes I want the albums copied chronologically and then alphabetically to a USB key (hey, some car audio systems have weird requirements). PowerShell makes this sort of thing really easy. Or it would, if there was a module for dealing with audio files. So I wrote one.

This is a beta, so please test before entrusting your whole library to it! Feedback desired and appreciated.
