Lame would probably do it if you're looking for a command line solution.

eg

list quick > ram:files.txt
cygnused files.txt
create macro
hit F1 a hundred times
save file and quit
execute files.txt

otherwise perhaps AE should have a feature added to import 8bit

You can do that with SoX (Sound eXchange).

sox infile.aiff -b 16 outfile.aiff

You can even make some kind of batch script with it using the list command and its lformat option if you want.

AFAIK lame is only an MP3 encoder, although it's name states otherwise (IIRC lame stands for "lame ain't an mp3 encoder"), so it won't help here.

Use something developed on Amiga for Amiga:

http://www.hd-rec.de/Archive/AudioConverter.lha

The Command line would look something like this:
AudioConverter DH0:Sounds/#?.aiff -f AIFF -db 16 -dd DH0:Sounds16Bit

SoundBox (v2.5) has a nice GUI, and should do what you want. There is a free key file for it now (was commercial).

But a shell-based program would probably be better, if you have a lot of files to convert.

If they are not really 8-bit *AIFF* but rather normal 8-bit IFF-8SVX you could use 8SVXtoXXX from http://www.onyxsoft.se . Has a GUI and batch conversion functionality.

=> Audioconverter does exactly what you need.

It support AIFF, WAV, MAUD, 8SVX, MP3 and several other formats from/to different bit resolutions and samplingrates.
