Korg Updates Free AudioGate Conversion Software


Korg has announced the release of version 2.2.0 of its free AudioGate software, available for all content creators and listeners alike. AudioGate enables the real-time playback of DSD/SACD files on any computer system, with any audio hardware.
AudioGate provides powerful dithering algorithms, along with convenient editing tools such as divide, merge, normalize, fade-in/fade-out and DC cut. Users can convert from 5.6 MHz or 2.8 MHz 1-bit audio files to any other format, including 16- or 24-bit PCM (up to 192 kHz sample rates), Apple Lossless or AAC, FLAC, Broadcast WAV (up to 32-bit floating supported) and even MP3 formats. It can be used to burn audio CDs, and the newer DSD Disc format (2.8 MHz sample rate), which can be played back on a growing number of devices, such as Sony Playstations and Vaio computers.
Over a half dozen new features have been added, including:
  • Support for several of the new features of Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion).
  • Auto sample rate switching; this function can automatically switch the sample rate of the audio device to match the sample rate of the current song.
  • Songlist function – can automatically open the most recent songlist when AudioGate starts.
  • Apple Remote support – AudioGate's Play, Pause, Fast-forward, Rewind, Next song and Previous song functions can be remotely controlled using the Apple Remote.
  • Support for the new WASAPI*1 audio driver, which is available with Microsoft Windows Vista and Microsoft Windows 7.
