dBpoweramp for Apple OS X

Posted By:  spoon @ Mar 12 2015, 11:22
dBpoweramp previously Windows only, is now available on Apple OS X (Mountain Lion or newer).

Regulars of dBpoweramp on Windows will instantly feel at home: Converting tracks, with Finder integration make editing tags and instigating conversions quick and easy. Batch conversions take the hard work out of whole library conversions. CD Ripper employs the same secure ripper, with AccurateRip, c2 error pointer support, utilizes 5 metadata providers for consistent and high quality metadata, finally multi-encoder enables two or more audio formats to be created at time of ripping.

Exact Audio Copy v1.0 beta 4


December 18, 2014

The last update was a really long time ago, but finally here comes a new version of EAC.
There are no larger new features, but bug fixes mainly regarding drive detection and problems on installing the .NET plugins made it necessary to release this service update.
Also I updated the freedb++ plugin, so that it again finds more covers to choose from. This plugin will be released as public domain shortly (I always wanted to do that, but I always wanted ...

AudioShell Beta Release

Posted By:  Jebus @ Oct 27 2014, 20:53
AudioShell is a new PowerShell-driven interface for converting, tagging and analyzing audio / music files.

edit: Renamed to PowerShell Audio. There is already an AudioShell out there. Oops!

Stable release 1.1 is now available, which adds cover art support.

  • A unified interface to popular codecs (Currently Lame MP3, Ogg Vorbis, Apple AAC, FLAC, Apple Lossless, and Wave).
  • Fast and highly concurrent ("multi-threaded") for modern, multi-core systems.
  • ReplayGain integration. Batch-analyze thousands of files quickly, then save the results to disk, convert to Apple SoundCheck format, or apply the changes directly during encoding.
  • Metadata preservation between formats.
  • I ...

lossyWAV 1.4.0 Released

Posted By:  Nick.C @ Oct 2 2014, 15:43
lossyWAV 1.4.0 is released.

lossyWAV is a near lossless audio processor which dynamically reduces the bitdepth of the signal on a block-by-block basis. Bitdepth reduction adds noise to the processed output. The added noise is adaptively shaped by default and can alternatively be fixed noise shaped or white noise depending on command line parameters. When lossyWAV processed output is compressed with certain lossless codecs (FLAC, Wavpack, Tak, LPAC, MPEG-4 ALS and WMA-Lossless) the bitrate of the output file is significantly* reduced compared to the lossless original.

Changes from 1.3.0b:
  • Code converted from Delphi to C++; Huge thanks to Tycho for kicking off the transcode;
  • WAVE64 and RF64 compatibility introduced for large audio files;
  • &q ...
