Products - Pro-Codec


The revolutionary Sonnox Fraunhofer Pro-Codec allows real-time auditioning and comparison of a variety of audio codecs. It has a display that helps analyse codec-induced clipping and noise, and enables real-time compensation for clipping.

The Pro-Codec's extensive monitoring tools and built-in encoding/decoding features enable mixes to be optimised for specific target formats, ensuring maximum fidelity for final encoding and distribution.

Integrated into the plug-in are Fraunhofer's own AAC and mp3 codecs, including MPEG Surround and multi-channel AAC formats for surround mixing, as well as Apple's iTunes+ codec for mixing directly for the Mastered for iTunes programme. (Mac version only).

The software now includes a stand-alone Manager application, which enables batch processing of multiple files and includes a full metadata editor.
