DSD enabler for Windows gets multichannel update 08/05/07
Sonic Studio has announced a new release of their audio format converter, AFC24. They tell us that, with this new version, nexStage AFC opens up its prodigious processing power to multichannel masters.
Hereâ€™s how they describe it in their own words:
'nexStage AFC24 is a unique transcoding package for Windowsâ€“equipped PCs, providing fully adjustable SRC and bidirectional PCM to DSD and DSD to PCM interchange. This new version of AFC offers conversion of up to 24 channels of source files. LPCM support includes WAV, AIFF, AIFF-C and BWF file formats with PCM sample rate conversion from 44.1 kHz up to 2.8224 MHz as single files or, in batches. This anyâ€“toâ€“any format transformation, without loss of quality, is just the thing for high end shops who must maintain their reputation for excellence.
For SACD authoring, a Compression Ratio Estimator with metering is provided to gauge DST lossless compression encoding gains. AFC24 also multiplexes, de-multiplexes and remodulates DSD data as well as creates DSDIFF EM or Edit Master files. Nine distinct Delta Sigma Modulators are available, including the famed Trellis E algorithm with adjustable path length for the highest fidelity at the smallest file size.' Pricing and Availability:
