IIRC ardour uses an out-of-tree version of libsndfile but I suppose it
should cope with the same file types as the official version, AIFF being
(of course) one of them. You must be facing a local bug or maybe it is a
regression in ardour but this sound unlikely to me, given Paul's
great skills.

If you really need a batch converter, try sndfile-convert (provided by
the sndfile-programs package on Debian).


PS: BTW, big up to Erik for providing us with libsndfile !
