Every week bulk of downloadable HD digital music are growing.
At our home we accumulates a huge audio libraries.
We need converting music formats and resolution for:
- compatibility with DAC and players,
- cuting down hard disk space occupied audio files
First requirement to this software is pure sound with minimum noises.
Hi-end ( pro ) converters on the market has:
- low level of distortions,
- embedded dithering,
- minimum phase filter.
Dithering - method of sound purity enhancement for 16 bit resolution converting.
Minimum phase filter (Analog mode) (of sampling rate conversion) - sound cause noise for digital sample rate conversion. Primarily you listen the (pre-sound) noise. After very short time you hear sound. Conversion utility in this mode efficiently fix the pre-sound noise.
But high resolution audio conversion software have three problems :
Limited number of native output formats - high resolution downloadable music files have lossless (FLAC, WAV, AIFF). As rule HD and pro utilities for converting supply a limited number of output formats. Don't supported formats ogg, mp3, alac and other (used for mobile audio devices: car and portable systems). Required additional manual audio converting of file with changed bit resolution and sample rate to final format.
User of audio converter software must able add necessary output file format. Third-parties encoders (executive files) possible connected via command line.
Noise of shifted ultrasound: shortcoming of audio equipment cause ultarsound shifted to bottom and become audible as noise. Especially it might rising during playback high resolution at high loudness level.
Runing on Mac OS X with Win emulation software - many producers and audiophiles use Mac. Some HD audio conversion utilities has Windows version only.
Converter software must have Mac version.
Сan not call any converter is the best. On audiophile market we have several alternatives always.
Note the AuI ConverteR 48x44 Audiophil-E version ($109,7).
This is an excellent price-quality ratio for the pro audio converter software with rich features and perfect sound. Compare it to the price of alternatives - audiophile-grade converters for audio files.
- FLAC support
- Output format customizing
- Dithering and Analog mode (see below)
- Native Mac run
About AuI ConverteR 48x44
Special design for high resolution converting of lossless WAV, FLAC, AIFF files:
- 64-bit floating point internal audio processing;
- noise of conversion below noise of 24-bit quantisation;
- dithering algorithm for improving of transparency 16 bit converting (16 bit to 24 bit/32 bit, 24 bit/32 bit to 16 bit, 16 bit to 16 bit);
- sampling rate converting without pre-ringing at output. Like to analog processing audio (minimum phase filter mode);
- sample frequency conversion without phase distortions. Fine for such sounds as drums, piano, guitar (linear phase filter mode).
Removing noise of shifted ultrasound simultaneously with alphaC sampling frequency conversion algorithm.
User customization of formats of output files : after audio resolution conversion automatically launching command line encoder utilities by third-parties developers. You can link your encoder utilities off one's own bat.

Modula-R's modules are NOT compatible with Lite, Audiophil-E, PROduce-R, PROduce-RD.
You can upgrade your Modula-R in the future via ordering modules.
