Audio Workflow Engine — Mac

AudioTools AWE is a low cost, complete solution for the automated alteration of digital audio assets. Existing files can be post-processed or repurposed quickly and easily, in a completely predefined way. With over two dozen different signal and file processing functions, AudioTools AWE allows audio professionals to specify an end-to-end file handling and DSP chain of actions that can be run in an unattended fashion. AudioTools AWE version 1.5 significantly reduces an engineer’s need to perform repetitive tasks. Via the Output Sets feature, a single interleaved source file can be deinterleaved, processed through a complex DSP chain including VST plug-ins, and then delivered as multiple output files in multiple formats simultaneously, including AIFF, AC-3, AU, SDII, W64 and WAV.

With certified support for key audio technologies for entertainment, including Dolby Digital, Dolby E, Dolby Pro Logic II and Dolby Media Meter, AWE is an indispensable application for any audio post facility.
