App to convert WAV to IFF

Does anyone knows any app able to convert WAV files to IFF files? Amiga or PC? (PC would be better, but I can use an Amiga app too)

I've found a lot of programs to convert to AIFF , but not IFF , and I guess they are not the same thing.

Thanks in advance.

i was using wav2amiga by adrdesign. the script uses sox - too many options, when using sox itself, so give it a try.

#1) SoundConvert 2.1a is another one - comes with a gui (SoundConvert 2.1 - 2.1a is an update only).

Tried to use it with the Sox version you indicated and also with ths one:

http://aminet.net/package/mus/edit/AmiSOX33

Couldn't make work with neither.

yours asks for a library, it looks to work only with modern systems.

The other one asks for a Play16 file thing I don't know what it is.

I've used the above AmiSOX to convert WAV to 8SVX. Definitely does work. Can't remember it asking for Play16 either.

Multiview saves as IFF whatever you load into it.

Play16 is there: http://aminet.net/package/mus/play/Play16

The Windows application Goldwave comes with my highest recommendation, I've had the registered version for a few years now. Well worth the money. Especially when used for preparing and converting audio for use on "retro" platforms.

Anyway, it has excellent batch processing features and supports a wide variety of audio formats, not the least of which being WAV and IFF.

My only gripe is it's a little buggy when running from Linux/Wine, can't create a new waveform for some reason, but it can still load and save just fine.

I could probably name at least half a dozen WAV>IFF converters for Amiga which have yet to be named in this thread, but you did specify in the original post that PC software would be preferred, and I can totally understand why. So I won't bother.

wav2amiga works on classicwb. it applies some compression to avoid noise and halves its frequency to fit amiga range. hoffman did a windows tool which uses sox resampling

you should have a look along this thread
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=72698

btw: wavosaur or soundforge -> export to mono 8 bit signed byte does the trick

moreover: octamed soundstudio can load aiff and wav (8-16 bit)

hope it helps

I don't know about wav, but for Mp3's on PC you've got this: http://www.mp3toaiff.com/ that works also with batchs.

Probably not the best way but I loaded the wavs into modplug tracker on a pc then saved it as a protracker module. On the amiga then I just saved out the samples.
