Subject:Converting Loops to One-Shots

I've got lots of drum samples (single hits and flams etc.) that show up as loops instead of one-shots.

I've been using SF-XP to change them (one-at-a-time) but, what a pain!!

Anyone know of an easier way to convert an entire subdirectory (or something) to one-shots? Please?

Because Sound Forge is the only digital audio editor I know of that saves ACIDized info with the file, it's the only app I can think of that will let a user convert a Loop to a One-shot. Not even Batch Converter 5 has such a feature.

There is a File>Save All command in Sound Forge (full, not sure about XP Studio) for any modified files, but you're still asked for parameters for the saves.

Chickensys Translator will now let you acidize whole folders using the same options as Acid/SF; oneshots/loops/beatmapped.
I had a discussion with the lead programmer a few months back and they finally ironed out all problems. Very responsive support.
You don't need the full version, I use the cheaper Gigaversion for my conversions.
The process is really easy, I've used it to acidize about 15 CDs worth of 24-bit multitracked drumloops and am now converting the whole Discrete Drums library, another 9-10 CDs...
