AudioWorks is a PowerShell module (and .NET library) for converting and tagging audio / music files. It is available under the Lesser GPL (v3) license, and runs on Windows, Linux and MacOS. AudioWorks replaces PowerShell Audio.


  • A unified interface to popular codecs (see Supported Formats).
  • Runs under PowerShell Core on Windows, MacOS and Linux (Windows PowerShell 5.1 is also supported).
  • Utilizes advanced SIMD, multi-threading, 64-bit addressing and low-allocation memory structures for the fastest possible encoding.
  • Includes EBU R.128-based ReplayGain "2.0" analysis and tagging.
  • Seamless tag preservation and conversion between formats (including cover art).
  • PowerShell interface brings powerful integration and scripting capabilities.
  • The API is open-source, well-documented and extensible.
