Posted By:  ktf @ Nov 27 2014, 09:40
After 18 months of development, FLAC 1.3.1 has been released. The trigger for this release was a heap overflow found by the Google Security Team.

Changes
  • Huge encoding speedup for i386 and x86_64 (up to 250% for 24-bit)
  • Slightly improved compression of compression levels 6, 7 and 8
  • Fixed CVE-2014-9028 (heap write overflow) and CVE-2014-8962
  • Output buffer has been added to Windows to mitigate fragmentation
  • Various build system improvements and bug fixes
For the complete changelog, see http://xiph.org/flac/changelog.html

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!

Features:


  • 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.
  • PowerShell interface brings powerful integration and scripting capa ...

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 ...
