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? )
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?
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.
- overwrite original files
- create new files with suffix
- use destination folder
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. :)
