Every year volume of downloadable HD audio are growing.
At home we store a vast media libraries.
We need converting music formats and for:
- compatibility with DAC and players,
- retrenching hard disk or disk storage space occupied music
What is high resolution file converter to WAV from lossless audio files?
Main claim to the converters is clear sound with minimum noises.
High resolution ( professional ) conversion software on the market has:
- low level of noise,
- in-built dithering,
- minimum phase filter.
Dithering - method of audio clarity improvement for 16 bit conversion.
Minimum phase filter (Analog mode) (of sampling rate conversion) - sound cause noise for digital sample rate conversion. First you listen the (pre-sound) noise. After some milliseconds appear sound. Converter in analog mode efficiently fix the pre-sound noise.
But HD music converters have three problems :
Limited number of native output file formats - high resolution downloadable audio files stores in FLAC, WAV, AIFF lossless formats. Usually audiophile and professional tools for converting support a restricted number of output formats. Don't supported formats ogg, mp3, alac and other (used for high resolution mobile audio gears: car and portable systems). Need additional manual audio converting of file with changed bit-depth and sampling rate to final format.
User of AuI Converter 48x44 able append required format of output files. Third-parties encoders can be connected via command line with parameters.
Noise of shifted ultrasound: imperfection of audio equipment cause ultarsound become audible as noise. Especially it might rising during playback HD (88/96/176/192 kHz) at high loudness power.
AuI Converter 48x44 restrict noise of shifted ultrasound.
Starting on Mac OS X with Win emulation software - many engineers and audiophiles use Mac. Some high qualitative audio conversion software has Windows version only.
AuI Converter 48x44 application has version for Mac.
Which can offers HD audio programs for resolution ( sampling rate and bit depth) converting of lossless files with intuitive interface?

About AuI ConverteR 48x44
Special design for HD converting of lossless WAV, FLAC, AIFF files:
- 64-bit float internal audio processing;
- noise of conversion below 24-bit quantisation noise;
- 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 conversion without pre-ringing at output. Like to analog processing audio (minimum phase filter mode);
- sampling frequency conversion without phase distortions. Fine for such instruments as drums, piano, guitar (linear phase filter mode).
Rejecting noise of shifted ultrasound simultaneously with sampling frequency conversion algorithm alphaC.
User customization of output files formats : after audio resolution converting automatically launching encoders via command line by third-parties developers. You can link your encoders off one's own bat.
