Two scripts assist with importing/managing lossless files (AL and AIFF) and sending converted AAC copies to iPod

Two scripts assist with importing/managing Apple Lossless or AIFF audio files and sending converted AAC copies to a mounted iPod set to "manually manage songs and videos".

Lossless to AAC Workflow (CD->iPod):

  • Imports each enabled CD track as an Apple Lossless or AIFF file
  • Makes a converted AAC copy of each imported file
  • Adds the AAC file to iPod, deleting the original AAC from iTunes.

Lossless to AAC Workflow (iTunes->iPod):

  • Makes a converted AAC copy of each Apple Lossless or AIFF track selected in iTunes
  • Adds the AAC file to iPod, deleting the original AAC from iTunes.

In this way you can keep archived lossless files on your hard drive, and manageable AAC files on your iPod.

Yes, iTunes 9.1 will auto-encode tracks to iPod, but only 128 kbps AAC; these scripts enable use of your Custom AAC encoder setting.

Not recommended for use with iOS 5 due to technical issues.

Action shot:

Lossless to AAC Workflow in action

The script "Lossless to AAC Workflow (CD->iPod)" will rip the checkmarked tracks of a CD as Apple Lossless (or AIFF), convert them to AAC copies, and, optionally, copy the AACs to an iPod.
