Every week bulk of downloadable high resolution digital music are growing.
At our home we amass a vast sound libraries.
We need converting soun files format and resolution for:
- compatibility with DAC and players,
- cuting down disk space occupied audio files
What is file format converter tools for audio enthusiasts?
First claim to the software is clear sound and minimum distortions.
Hi-end ( professional ) converters on the market has:
- low level of distortions,
- built-in dithering,
- minimum phase filter.
Dithering - method of audio clarity enhancement for 16 bit resolution conversion.
Minimum phase filter (Analog mode) (of sampling rate conversion) - sound burn noise for digital sampling frequency conversion. First you listen the (pre-sound) noise. After some milliseconds appear sound. Converter in analog mode efficiently confine the pre-sound noise.
But high resolution music conversion utilities have three problems :
Limited range of native output formats - high resolution downloadable music files stores in FLAC, WAV, AIFF formats. Usually high resolution and pro tools for converting supply a restricted output formats range. Don't supported formats ogg, mp3, alac and other (used for high resolution mobile audio devices: car and portable systems). Required additional manual conversion of file with changed bit-depth and sampling frequency to destination format.
User of AuI Converter 48x44 able add necessary output file format. Third-parties encoders (executive files) can be connected via command line.
Noise of shifted ultrasound: shortcoming of audio gears cause ultarsound become audible as noise. Especially it might rising during playback HD (88/96/176/192 kHz) at high loudness level.
AuI Converter 48x44 reject the noise.
Launching on Mac OS X with Windows emulation software - many producers and audiophiles use Mac. Some HD audio conversion utilities has Windows version only.
AuI Converter 48x44 software has version for Mac OS X.
Which can offers HD audio software for resolution ( sampling rate and bit depth) conversion of lossless files with user friendly interface?

About AuI ConverteR 48x44
Special design for high resolution conversion of lossless files WAV, FLAC, AIFF:
- 64-bit floating point all internal sound processing;
- conversion noise below 24-bit quantisation noise;
- dithering for improving of purity 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 sound processing (minimum phase filter mode);
- sample frequency conversion without phase distortions. Fine for such instruments as drums, piano, guitar (linear phase filter mode).
Fixing noise of shifted ultrasound simultaneously with sample rate conversion algorithm alphaC.
User customization of output files formats : after audio resolution converting automatically runing command line encoder utilities by third-parties developers. You can connect your encoder utilities off one's own bat.
