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

Audiobook Builder

I love this program and have used it for more than ten years. I walk for exercise, and thanks to Audiobook Builder, I can listen to book after book whille I’m walking, keeping my mind occupied in a great way so that I can walk even further. What a happy dog I have! ABB has always worked great for me, in conjunction with whatever iPod or now, iPhone, I have. I don’t have time to sit and read a book; but now I can keep up what others are reading because of this app. Also, I can borrow the books on CD from my local library, which carries a much larger collection of books on CD than I would have imagined. That makes my listening to books free, once I purchased this app. Thank you Splasm!!

Awesome App!

I have used this app to create tons of audiobooks. The interface is extremely user friendly and its a joy to use. Lots of options for how you want your audiobook to be built and its fast puting everything together once you decide.

I use this app mostly to convert audiobooks that I have previously uploaded to iTunes from MP3 to M4B(A), add artwork, merge the chapters and whatnot. I wish there was an option to delete the original files once the conversion is complete. It might exist, I just havent found it.

Either way, completely worth my money. I tried other free apps to do the same thing and they just didn't work. This is definitely the way to go!

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 !
