SDII files to WAV converter

Hi there,

I'm looking for a software capable to convert SDII files into WAV files (batch if possible)
Any idea ?


Music production, Post production sound

Pro Tools will do that for you. You will need to create a session and import all the SDII files into that session. On import, they will be converted to WAV. The SDII files won't be modified. There may be other software that does that but, as SDII were made by Digidesign in the first place, Pro Tools is the most appropriate tool to do this. Good luck, Daniel.

Hi Daniel,
Thanks for your reply.
Unfortunately it seems like Protools stopped to do this after PT10....
And I'm on PT12 so no chance for me to do it with Protools.
It seems to me like SDII is really really dead !!!

I do have PT11, didn't bother with PT12 as these days the changes are mainly cosmetic. PT11 converts SDII files very quickly and perfectly. If you ever need something important to convert, you can always send me a link to a file and I will convert it for you. My website is

Hi Vince,
I'm using TwistedWave for that kind of job:
It includes a batch processing tool ;)

@ Dan : thanks very much for the proposal. It may be too much work since it's an entire samples bank... I think I will investigate Laurent's tip. I must say PT12 was a huge improvement for me since they introduced freeze & commit, but if you really don't need them I'm sure PT11 can do the job !
@ Laurent : thanks for the tip, it seems to be the right software to do it !
