AES08: Low Cost Premastering Application Updated


As previewed last month, Sonic Studio have announced the release of a completely new version of their low cost premastering application, PreMaster CD. The 3.0 release provides native support for both Intel and PowerPC hosts.
With essential, high end features that they areknown for, Sonic Studio say that PreMaster CD provides key premastering functionality not found in most digital audio workstations. In addition, available options allow savvy engineers to customize the application’s already strong collection of functions based on client need. This new, Universal Binary release consolidates all the maintenance changes incorporated into the code base while improving both ease of use, speed and stability on all Intel and PowerPC Macs.
PreMaster CD opens up a portable treasure chest of expert premastering features, including completely manual, automatic and semi–automatic PQ generation. Sonic Studio’s exclusive Smart Fade Tool and background CD writing, along with easy drag and drop resequencing makes quick work of CD refs. The new version, which includes enhanced dither choices, adds iZotope’s proprietary MBIT+ redithering algorithm to Sonic Studio’s spectrally shaped TPDF redithering. Both choices are psychoacoustically–optimized redithering schemes, each with a different sonic “color,� so you can match your redithering choice to your material.
