    I'm getting mp3 Encoder trial has expired. Plus, can it be added in the folder list all drives? It shows only /User/USERNAME directories atm.

    Noted, thanks for your feedback.
    Other drives will be made accessible in dBpoweramp's file browser in the next update. For now you can access files in arbitrary locations via File => Open menu.
    MP3 encoder expiration looks like another unintended behavior, we are looking into it.

    A few things I stumbled across (random order):

    Dropdown elements don't look and behave like native cocoa widgets

    I'd add some indentation to the text in the status bar

    The icons look ugly (not sure if they look better under windows)

    No AAC in the codec selection seems strange under OS X

    If you pause a conversion the "Pause" button should change to "Resume" imho

    In the "Filter Audio Types" window I'd replace the "Back" button with a "Hide" or "Close" button

    In the "Filter Audio Types" window clicking the "Back" button results in a lag

    Perhaps using the typical "macish" blue background color for the left pane might look better than white everywhere (not sure)

    Clicking the "Close" button after conversion results in a lag
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    That's it for now. I'm using OS X 10.9

    Another thing:

    *) Select some tracks in the right pane
    *) Click the "Reset" button and confirm with "OK"
    *) The check marks aren't removed (or only one is)

    This seems to only be a visual bug since if you switch to another folder and then switch back the check marks are gone.

    Done.

    They're mostly carried over from the Windows version and look out of place - they will be hopefully redone before the final version.

    Indeed, an oversight on our side; an AAC codec will be added shortly.

    Done.

    Done.

    In the "Filter Audio Types" window clicking the "Back" button results in a lag
    Clicking the "Close" button after conversion results in a lag
    Lag bug fixed for the next update.

    Perhaps using the typical "macish" blue background color for the left pane might look better than white everywhere (not sure)
    Unsure about this one, we still need checkboxes in that pane; if we can make these not look out of place with blue background, I'll add blue background as well.

    *) Select some tracks in the right pane
    *) Click the "Reset" button and confirm with "OK"
    *) The check marks aren't removed (or only one is)
    Fixed as well.

    Thanks again for the detailed report.

    Nice, that was really quick. Regarding the bluish background I meant sth. like the left pane of this, also with the slim border.

    I also just realized that the text in the right pane is smaller. Was that intended?

    1) Apple Lossless and FLAC both show bitrate as the raw PCM bitrate instead of the compressed rate.
    2) Conversion from Apple Lossless to FLAC does not preserve embedded album artwork.

    It works with Mountain Lion as well.

    Only issue I found is that I can't convert from FLAC to any other format. When I open a directory with FLAC files, nothing shows up as being able to convert. I have checked the "Filter" pane and found that FLAC is not a file format option. This should probably be added.

    I agree with what TobiasL said about the "blueish" background on the left panel. That would help make it more "mac" like.

    Thanks for the opportunity to test and will attempt to test further!

    Thanks for the report.

    This is most strange - it sounds like the FLAC codec isn't getting loaded for you.

    What OSX version do you run?

    Do your FLAC files have .fla extension instead of .flac?

    As a result of an oversight on our side, .fla extension isn't currently recognized. This will be fixed in the next update.

    All my FLAC files have a .flac extension.
