The new Sonnox Fraunhofer Pro-Codec plug-in makes it possible to precisely audition codecs in real time. This breaks away from the current time-consuming cycle of having to encode the mix to MP3/AAC, preview it, tweak it and then go back and re-render. The entire process is accomplished on the fly, and frees the engineer to focus on producing a compensated, optimized mix.

The Pro-Codec plug-in enables mix and mastering engineers to audition up to five codecs in real time within a DAW environment, produce an optimized mix and batch encode to multiple formats simultaneously. All major codec, including MP3, MP3 Surround, AAC-LC and HE-AAC are supported, as are lossless codecs such as MP3 HD and HD-AAC.

Sonnox has developed a FFT display to illustrate the input signal, output difference signal and a graphical indication of the audibility of codec-induced noise. Bit-stream integrity meters reveal potential decode overloads. Instant A/B auditioning enables engineers to switch between codecs. A Blind Listening mode (ABX) augments codec comparisons.

The Pro-Codec plug-in is compatible with all popular DAWs, including Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Nuendo, SONAR, Sequoia and Wavelab. Both Mac and Windows are supported.
