Har-Bal International, a joint venture between TAQUIS and HDQTRZ Digital Studios, announced the release of Har-Bal (Harmonic Balancer), a new mastering equalization system for all Windows systems (95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP) that corrects inconsistencies in mixed track sound files. The introductory price is U.S. 95.

Har-Bal lets the user create original and remastered recordings. The reference files included with the program are guides that show the user (based on the music genre) how to adjust the spectrum of your a song. The reference files are based on a study of the average frequency spectrum of hundreds of songs of varying styles of music.

When a song is loaded into Har-Bal, its frequency spectrum is immediately analyzed. Users then choose a reference template (provided by the company) and will immediately see the locations of the strengths and weaknesses of the song. The software uses an 8,192-point linear-phase FIR filter, whose characteristics are designed to match and compensate for the average spectrum as closely as possible. The degree to which the user can boost and cut a particular region is essentially unlimited.

Har-Bal International is currently working on a Mac version. For more, visit www.har-bal.com.
