Every week bulk of downloadable high resolution digital audio are growing.
At our home we amass a huge audio libraries.
We need converting audio formats and resolution for:
- compatibility with DAC and players,
- reducing hard disk space occupied music
How to convert to WAV file from lossless formats AIFF and FLAC.
Main claim to the converting software is pure sound and minimum distortions.
Hi-end ( pro ) converters on the market has:
- low level of distortions,
- built-in dithering,
- minimum phase filter.
Dithering - method of audio clarity improvement for 16 bit resolution conversion.
Minimum phase filter (Analog mode) (of sampling rate conversion) - sound cause noise for digital sampling rate conversion. First you listen the (pre-sound) noise. After some milliseconds you hear sound. Conversion utility in analog mode efficiently confine the pre-sound noise.
But HD audio converters have 3 troubles :
Restricted number of native output formats - high resolution downloadable music files stores in FLAC, WAV, AIFF lossless formats. As rule high resolution and professional utilities for conversion supply a limited range 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 conversion of file with changed resolution to final format.
User of AuI Converter 48x44 able add required output file format. Third-parties encoders can be connected via command line.
Noise of shifted ultrasound: shortcoming of audio gears cause ultarsound become audible as noise. Especially it might appear during playback HD at high loudness level.
AuI Converter 48x44 restrict the noise.
Runing on Mac with Windows emulation software - often sound engineers and audiophiles use Mac. Some high qualitative audio conversion tools has Windows version only.
AuI Converter 48x44 application has Mac OS X version.
Which can offers HD audio programs for resolution ( sample rate and bit depth) conversion 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;
- conversion noise below 24-bit quantisation noise;
- dithering 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);
- sample rate converting without pre-ringing at output. Similar to analog audio processing (minimum phase filter mode);
- sampling rate conversion without phase distortions. Fine for such instruments as drums, piano, guitar (linear phase filter mode).
Suppressing noise of shifted ultrasound simultaneously with sampling rate conversion algorithm alphaC.
User customization of output files formats : after conversion automatically runing encoder utilities via command line by third-parties developers. You can connect your encoders off one's own bat.
