m4 audio and conversion

Hi Jaqueline,

Since we run a small studio as well we routinely do a lot of audio conversions. For batch processing we use the Mac app Sound converter pro  that uses multiple cores and can generate almost anything. I don't know the necessities or quality of your audio files but if they are already m4 there must be some master AIFF or WAV files originally. If you paid someone for the files then you own those as well. Conversion to a compressed Windows format may indeed lose a bit compared to m4 but is it really that critical? 
Sound converter Pro is 29$ I believe and it can batch fast and whole long lists of files and folders with multiple settings.
Hope this helps .
