Every year bulk of downloadable HD audio are growing.
At home we amass a vast audio libraries.
We need converting music formats and for:
- compatibility with DAC and players,
- cuting down disk space occupied audio files
How to convert music to WAV. What is musical file format converter utilities for lossless FLAC, WAV, AIFF?
Main requirement to this software is clear sound with minimum distortions.
Audiophile ( professional ) converters on the market has:
- low level of noise,
- in-built dithering,
- minimum phase filter.
Dithering - method of audio transparency enhancement for 16 bit converting.
Minimum phase filter (Analog mode) (of sample rate conversion) - sound burn noise for digital sampling frequency conversion. Primarily you listen the (pre-sound) noise. After very short time appear sound. Conversion utility in this mode efficiently restrict the pre-sound noise.
But hi-end audio converters have some issues :
Limited range of native output file formats - HD downloadable music files stores in FLAC, WAV, AIFF formats. As rule audiophile and pro utilities for converting support a limited number of output formats. Don't supported formats wma, mp3, alac and other (used for qualitative mobile audio devices: car and portable systems). Need additional manual audio converting of file with changed resolution to final format.
User of AuI Converter 48x44 able append necessary output file format. Third-parties encoders (executive files) can be connected via command line with parameters.
Noise of shifted ultrasound: shortcoming of audio equipment cause ultarsound shifted to bottom and become audible as noise. Especially it might appear during playback HD (88/96/176/192 kHz) at high loudness level.
AuI Converter 48x44 reject the noise.
Launching on Mac with Win emulation software - often sound engineers and audiophiles use Mac. Some HD audio conversion utilities has Windows version only.
AuI Converter 48x44 software has Mac OS X version.
Which can offers audiophile utilities for resolution ( sample rate and bit depth) converting of lossless files with user friendly interface?

About AuI ConverteR 48x44
Special design for HD conversion of lossless files WAV, FLAC, AIFF:
- 64-bit float all internal audio processing;
- conversion noise below noise of 24-bit quantisation;
- dithering for improving of purity 16 bit conversion (16 bit to 24 bit/32 bit, 24 bit/32 bit to 16 bit, 16 bit to 16 bit);
- sampling frequency conversion without pre-ringing at output. Like to analog processing audio (minimum phase filter mode);
- sampling rate conversion without phase distortions. Fine for such instruments as drums, piano, guitar (linear phase filter mode).
Rejecting noise of shifted ultrasound simultaneously with sampling rate conversion algorithm alphaC.
User customization of formats of output files : after audio resolution conversion automatically runing encoders via command line by third-parties developers. You can connect your encoders off one's own bat.
