Sound quality issues

If you convert without resampling you are have 2 options:

  • sound optimization;
  • bit-perfect (without any altering of audio content resolution and processing).

To turn on bit-perfect mode, in AuI ConverteR's Settings > General tab > check "Don't make DSP..." switch.
At main window > Output panel > set bit depth and sampling rate "as input".

Sound optimization may be useful for some records and some hardware. It cut ultrasound upper 20 kHz to prevent audible products (may be listened as noise) of intermodulation distortions, generated by ultrasound. Sound optimization is activated by default.

Watch and share: Experiment with cutting of ultrasound
 

 

Bit-perfect conversion re-pack FLAC to ALAC without altering audio content.

If you convert with resampling you are have 2 options:

  • sound optimization;
  • without the optimization.

Non-optimized conversion is the same to traditional resampling: target audio band is limited by minimal sample rate between input and output.
