We talk about choice of HD audio file converter for Mac OS X.
What some troubles of high resolution audio converters? Tell about 3 problems.
Noise of shifted ultrasound - noise (intermodulation distortions) appear due non-linear distortions of analog way of audio devices for playback high resolution (88/96/176/192 kHz) files.
Restricted number of output formats - downloadable high resolution music have FLAC, WAV, AIFF formats. Professional audio converters usually support a limited range of built-in output formats. wma, mp3, alac, other (used in qualitative mobile audio) don't supported. We make final converting to destination format manually.
Mac start with Windows emulation software - producers and audiophiles often use Mac OS X. Some high quality audio converters are Windows compatible only.
We need audiophile tool for change audio resolution (sample rate and bit depth) of lossless files with user frienly interface.
We have decission these problems. New software AuI ConverteR 48x44 is audio file converter for Mac OS X special designed for high resolution lossless.
And native launching for Mac OS X.
Special design for high resolution conversion of lossless files WAV, FLAC, AIFF
- conversion noise below 24-bit quantisation noise;
- sample rate conversion mode without phase distortions (linear phase filter). Fine for such sounds as drums, piano, guitar;
- sample rate conversion mode without pre-ringing (minimum phase filter). Like to analog sound processing;
- alphaD dithering for transparency improving of 16 bit conversion (16 -> 24/32, 24/32 -> 16);
- 64-bit float point full workflow of audio processing.
Suppressing noise of shifted ultrasound into original alphaC algorithm of sample rate conversion.
User customization of output format - automatic (after resolution conversion) launching of command line encoder utilities. User can on one's own connect necessary utilities.
