Codec Preview allows you to hear what your audio will sound like after conversion to MP3 or AAC, and gives you the opportunity to compensate for this data loss without leaving your DAW. For example, when converting to a low bit rate MP3, you may want to brighten your audio slightly, to counteract the loss of high frequency data.
Codec Preview features:
- Simulate loss of data in MP3 or AAC file formats at bit rates as low as 96kbps, to hear how your audio sounds at the lowest resolutions.
- Use the Solo Artifacts button to hear all the sound that may be lost after file conversion.
- Know when your music's done, when it's ready to delivery, and how it will sound in its final listening format.
