WAV to AC3 Encoder 5.4

A simple piece of software that helps you convert WAV files to AC3 format with the aid of batch processing and configure audio parameters (e.g. sample rate and format, channels, bitrate)
WAV to AC3 Encoder is a software application that allows you to easily convert audio tracks, from WAV to AC3 format.

Clean looks

The user interface of the program is simple and easy to understand. You can add files or folders to the queue by using the file browser or the "drag and drop" method, set the output path and initialize the encoding process.

Batch processing

It is important to mention that the program offers support for batch processing, which means you can add multiple files and process them at the same time.

Audio configuration settings

Furthermore, you can select the sample rate and format, channels, engine and threads, as well as adjust the bitrate and set the desired values.

You can also configure encoding options (e.g. fast bit allocation, minimum and maximum bandwidth, stereo rematrixing), bitstream info metadata, dynamic range compression and dialog normalization, input options and filters, and alternate bit stream syntax.

Built-in MUX wizard

In addition, you can enable the MUX wizard, check the "Multiple mono input" option, create a preset, save and load files list, disable all warnings, save and load configurations, and more.


The program uses a low amount of system resources, quickly completes a task and manages to keep a very good sound quality. We haven't come across any kind of problems during our tests.

An overall efficient conversion utility

All in all, WAV to AC3 Encoder is a very good tool for converting WAV files to the AC3 format and can be easily used by novices. Power users would also be pleased with the advanced settings the software application offers.
