Sonnox has announced the release of the Fraunhofer Pro-Codec, a plug-in designed for the real-time auditioning, encoding and decoding of audio signals using Fraunhofer codecs.

Mix and mastering engineers may now audition up to five codecs in real time within a DAW environment. The Sonnox Fraunhofer Pro-Codec plug-in enables the production of mixes, and provides the option to batch encode to multiple formats. Major codecs, including: mp3, mp3 Surround, AAC-LC and HE-AAC are supported, as are such lossless codecs as mp3 HD and HD-AAC.

 

Sonnox has devised a FFT display which illustrates the input and output difference signals and a graphical indication of codec-induced noise audibility. Bit-stream level meters display the possibility of decode overloads. A-B auditioning enables engineers to switch between codecs, or input and codec. A blind listening mode (ABX) further supports codec comparisons.

 

Features:

  • Supported Codecs:
    • mp3, mp3 Surround, AAC-LC, HE-AAC, and HE-AAC v2.
    • mp3-HD and HD-AAC (Lossless Codecs).
  • Ability to select up to five codecs for simultaneous export, in real time, to encoded files.
  • Auditioning with glitchless switching.
  • Ability to audition the difference between input signal and codec output.
  • AB auditioning in real time between codecs, or between codec and input signal.
  • ABX mode for blind statistical testing.
  • Graphical displays include:
    • Display of the Input signal and Diff signal.
    • Indication of the audibility of audio removed by the encoding process.
    • Bitstream levels and ability to compensate for overloads.
    • Indication of filesize or datastream compression.
    • Phase metering.
  • Off-line encoding and decoding.

 

Pricing & Availability:

The Pro-Codec costs £295 / $495 and is available for Windows and Mac OS X in VST, AU and RTAS effect plug-in formats.
