Mad is a high Quality Open-Source Audio encoder Library. It encodes mp3, mp2
and others to aiff or cdda and others. This is particulary interesting, if you
want to edit a mpeg file in quicktime or import an mpeg into FCP or
DVD-Studio. Due to reasons only known by Apple, Quicktime wont let you edit
a muxed mpeg, also export of a muxed mpeg to another movie format is impossible.
So, what you have to do is: demux the mpeg into its audio and video-Streams,
then Convert the audio (most times mp2 format) to aiff. Export the Video to
mpeg4. Then again make a Quicktime movie with sound by using the "add
scaled" option of Quicktime pro. Afterwards save the movie either self
contained or with dependencies. You then are able to edit it with any quicktime
This is where mad is needed - convert the mp2 to aiff. For demuxing use
tools like bbedmux or mpgtx.

. This includes the commandline application and a GUI wrapper which is
drag and drop enabled to easy convert a mpeg audio file to aiff.
If you like to compile mad on the MacOSX Platform yourself visit the
mad. The wrapper I
made should work with any madplay in /usr/local/bin.
