Every year bulk of downloadable HD audio are growing.
At our home we store a vast sound libraries.
Most popular formats are WAV and FLAC.
We need converting audio formats and for:
- compatibility with DAC and players,
- curtailing hard disk space occupied music
Here we talk how to convert to wav from FLAC and AIFF lossless audio files.
This conversion should have transparent sound, i.e. with minimum distortions.
Audiophile ( pro ) converters on the market has:
- low level of distortions,
- built-in dithering,
- minimum phase filter.
Dithering - method of sound purity improvement for 16 bit resolution converting.
Minimum phase filter (Analog mode) (of sample rate conversion) - sound cause noise for digital sampling frequency conversion. Primarily you listen the (pre-sound) noise. After very short time appear sound. Conversion software in this mode efficiently confine the pre-sound noise.
However HD music conversion software have some issues :
Limited number of native output formats - high resolution downloadable audio files have format (FLAC, WAV, AIFF). Usually high resolution and pro tools for conversion support a limited output formats range. Don't supported other formats (wma, mp3, alac etc. ) (used for hi-end mobile audio devices: car and portable systems). Required additional manual conversion of file with changed bit-depth and sample rate to destination format.
User of AuI Converter 48x44 able append required format of output files. Third-parties encoders can be connected via command line.
Noise of shifted ultrasound: imperfection of audio apparatus cause ultarsound shifted to bottom and become audible as noise. Especially it might rising during playback high resolution (88/96/176/192 kHz) at high loudness power.
AuI Converter 48x44 suppress the noise.
Launching on Mac with Win emulation software - often sound producers and audiophiles use Mac. Some high resolution audio conversion converters has Windows version only.
AuI Converter 48x44 application has version for Mac OS X.
Which can offers audiophile programs for resolution ( sampling rate and bit depth) converting of lossless files with user friendly interface?

About AuI ConverteR 48x44
Special design for HD conversion of lossless WAV, FLAC, AIFF files:
- 64-bit floating point internal sound processing;
- noise of conversion 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 converting without pre-ringing at output. Similar 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).
Removing noise of shifted ultrasound simultaneously with sampling rate conversion algorithm alphaC.
User customization of output files formats : after audio resolution converting automatically runing command line encoders by third-parties developers. You can link your encoders off one's own bat.
