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!
• 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
Ratings and Reviews
More than just for Audio Books….
Software works great! I’m actually a DJ, and was looking for software to covert some of my separated mix tracks into one full length mix without having to use a heavy duty editor such as Logic Pro where I have to copy each file and adjust the starts and ends….too time consuming.
I searched and download/purchased a few other apps, and while there were a handful off apps that can split / merge audio files, they are slow, wonky with selecting bit rates, and sometimes do not produce desired results (cut off before finishing, etc)
This software is customizable, reliable, saves me time by copying over some of the details from the tag info over, encodes faster than other apps I tried, and has the ability to select bit rates up to a very high, overkill settings, which is A+, and the best part of all was there were no gaps or breaks in the encoded file once I encoded.
The only disadvantage at the moment is that the only selectable output file type is m4a / m4b files.
I contacted their support to inquire about the possibility of adding options for mp3 files (hopefully even more options such as .wav :), and their support replied to me within 20 minutes informing me that they were already looking into adding this feature to future versions! 5 Stars all the way once they do.
Thanks for making this software, and keep up the great work.
A must for creating audiobooks!
I love listening to audiobooks. I have plenty of opportunities to listen but not that many to read but it’s a hassle if you’re getting your books from basiclly anywhere other than audible because they arent in audiobook format. That usually means multiple mp3 tracks and those dont keep your place. With Audiobook Builder you can either import straight from the CD’s or grab mp3 files from iTunes and it will turn it into an audiobook for you. It is sooo easy to work with! You can enter title, author name and even get the cover art and it does the rest. On top of that the program puts the audiobook straight into iTunes for you so all you have to do is plug in your device, select the audiobook and sync. It’s such a relief knowing whether I get my audiobook digitally or not, I am going to be able to have it in the glorious audiobook format.
Stop trying to make your book CDs act like music. Convert!!!
This Apple fan was really frustrated trying to listen to CD books. I tried loading them as Music. Mac hates that and offers no help for CD books. To work smoothly they must be added as books but dont look to Apple for any help at all. When it comes to converting my CDs to books in iTunes this Audiobooks App very easily adds them to my library. I now can listen to them while traveling on my iPhone. Its so easy and the results so satisfying I am adding in my old books just have them all on my computer. What a simple solution. Works great and fairly easy to learn how it works. Once I started treating books like books the chapter features and picking up where I left off were great. CONVERT!!!!! Now if they just had a way to convert paper books I could give them a 6 rating.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
