    I want to do audio file conversion, but I've found that Switch is really slow. Is there some application that works as well for audio conversion as Handbrake does for fast video conversion?

    What kind of audio in which format and using what codec do you want to convert to what?

    How long does it take for you with Switch and how big and long is the audio anyway?

    64-bit won't make it that much faster, unless you need more than 2 to 3 GB of RAM for the conversion.

    Do you think 64-bits makes the software run faster? Not really it can actually slow it down. What 64-bits apps do for you is allow each app to access more than 4GB RAM. Some times alowig that much RAM to be used can make the app go faster. But what audio files is so large to require so much RAM?
