"Unstable" build writes blank files converting AIFF to MP3

Post by CobraTrumpet » Mon Oct 24, 2011 1:55 am

I am using a Mac Pro 1,1 running Snow Leopard (10.6.8).

I cannot reliably use the "stable version" (0.9.1) due to the bug with the Formats preferences pane.

The "unstable" version (r1438) works fine, EXCEPT that when I try to convert AIFF to MP3 the resulting file is blank. (Just a completely silent MP3 file of the appropriate length.) Converting AIFF to other formats works, and converting from other formats to MP3 also works. So as a workaround, I can go from AIFF to WAV, and then from WAV to MP3, to get the files I need.

This might seem like a silly complaint (results are results, right?), but I use this particular conversion a lot, and pre-Snow-Leopard MAX accomplished it with a speed and elegance that really made a difference in my workflow. Is there a way to fix this problem?

I just tried this and it worked fine. I started with an MP3 file, used Max to convert it to AIFF, then had Max convert that AIFF to MP3, and it worked.

Could there be something particular about these AIFF files that triggers the problem?
