1)

Currently browsing for the source and destination folders is a bit tedious with the Windows default (un-resizable) folder tree browser.

(I usually already have those folders opened on my desktop, why do I have to browse there again through this awkward menu? Crying or Very sad )

The path appears as a text field, but you cannot paste text to it. How about making the path field freely editable so you can copy-paste the folder path from your Explorer window?

2)

It would be totally awesome if the Batch Processor also supported a list of files you could simply drag & drop into, then apply the batch function to those.

Save options:
- overwrite original files
- create new files with suffix
- use destination folder

3)

And maybe Batch Processor could also have an "apply function to all currently opened files" option, and then there could be a "Save All Currently Opened Files" (with "yes to all, please") command in the file menu. Why not!

--

After this, it would be very simple to drag 23 wav files to the batch processor's file list, then apply "Normalize -0.3dB" to them all, after which I could switch the function to "Auto trim at -50dB", click Start again... and be done with it. Easy as pie!

(this is the most common batch operation I need to do: normalize and crop silence)

Thank you for time. And for creating this awesome yet tiny program. :)

Geez! 3 years and no response on an important feature that wastes so much time....

I too have problems with the Wavosaur batch and the fact you must do that tedious stuff and scroll endlessly to find the folders the files are in and once again tell the batch where the processed ones go.

Every batch you need to do it - endlessly naviagte.... huge waste and kind of undermines the purpose of saving time with the batch...

This takes forever and there is no other way - very inflexible. Pasting location would be better but ideally you need to modernize that up to the standards of 2015 and make it so you could quickly navigate straight to the folder.

Surely there is something you could code to make batch better.

Confused
