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.
Formats currently supported:
- Apple AAC (Windows and MacOS)
- Apple Lossless (Windows and MacOS)
- Lame MP3
- Ogg Vorbis
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.
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.
