Audiobook Builder

By Splasm Software, Inc.

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Audiobook Builder makes it easy to turn your audio CDs and files into audiobooks for your iPhone, iPod or iPad. Join audio, create enhanced chapter stops, adjust quality settings and let Audiobook Builder handle the rest. When it finishes you get one or a few audiobook tracks in iTunes instead of hundreds or even thousands of music tracks!

What's New in Version 1.5.7

• Resolves a potential situation where CDs may not be ejected after importing
• Uses far less memory when adding from iTunes so more tracks can be added at the same time
• New application and document icons for better compatibility with macOS 10.12 Sierra
• Minor user interface fixes and enhancements

Simply the best way to convert Audiobook CD's to audiobook files

This is such a great app.

Very easy to use pop in the CD's for your favorite audiobook, one at a time.
The program will compile them all, with chapter suppoort and create an audiobook file you can use in itunes or on your iphone.

The main difference between using this program vs using something like itunes is that audiobook builder will create a single audiobook file, whereas itunes would 'rip' your CD's into a bunch of files (one file per "Track" on the each CD.
The reason this is important is, if you play part of an audiobook, then stop and do something else, when you come back your mac/phone will remember where in the audiobook you were. If you try to do this with music files, itunes just starts over at the beginning of the file.

This is a great tool at an affordable price, and it's great to see the developer has maintained it through the years.

A++ Highly recommended !

I have been able to listed to 200 books and 2 times faster!!

I love this utility - it works great, allowing me to put my own graphics on MP3’s I have on CD because my car does not have a CD Player, so I put them in my cell phone and can listen to them at 2X speed. It is great and I love it. If you love listening to books on tape and don’t have time to read and life gets busy, just use this app and get an education, or relax with a good book in the car.

Solid Audiobook building app

This is a great little audiobook application that makes it the process of making chapterized .m4b files simple and streamlined. It works well with little to no learning curve. Worth the money.

Update to the developers: thanks for listening and implementing my ideas! Yay for modern iTunes icons and new screenshots of Audiobook Builder in the Mac App Store. As always, a fantastic product.
