Check out Shutter Encoder. It is shareware intended for video but it also includes audio formats.

We use a program called dBpoweramp which is available for Mac & PC for all of our audio transcoding.  One of our broadcast delivery systems requires MP2 and dBpoweramp is used for that conversion.  I just tried using it to convert back to WAV and, although I’ve never needed to do so before, it did work.

Gang...  I am trying to help a station migrate an automation system library. Alas, it is encoded in Dolby AC-2. I can't find a way to convert AC-2 into something more standard. Any pointers to programs / libraries / plug-ins that can support decoding Dolby AC-2 into PCM or something else? Ideally something that I can script up to process 6,000 or so cuts.

Thanks in advance.
