Premastering Trend Setter Hits Its Stride
Marin County, CA â€“ May 17, 2008 â€” Sonic Studio, LLC, the leader in ultraâ€“fidelity production tools for audio engineers, announced the release of a completely new version of their low cost premastering application, PreMaster CDâ„¢. The 3.0 release provides native support for both Intel and PowerPC hosts.
With essential, high end features that Sonic Studio is known for, PreMaster CD provides key premastering functionality not found in most digital audio workstations. In addition, available options allow savvy engineers to customize the applicationâ€™s already strong collection of functions based on client need. This new, Universal Binary release consolidates all the maintenance changes incorporated into the code base while improving both ease of use, speed and stability on all Intel and PowerPC Macs.
PreMaster CD opens up a portable treasure chest of expert premastering features, including completely manual, automatic and semiâ€“automatic PQ generation. Sonic Studioâ€™s exclusive Smart Fade Tool and background CD writing, along with easy drag and drop resequencing makes quick work of CD refs. The new version, which includes enhanced dither choices, adds iZotopeâ€™s proprietary MBIT+â„¢ redithering algorithm to Sonic Studioâ€™s spectrally shaped TPDF redithering. Both choices are psychoacousticallyâ€“optimized redithering schemes, each with a different sonic â€œcolor,â€? so you can match your redithering choice to your material.
With a feature set thatâ€™s unique for its price, PreMaster CD 3.0 enters distribution in June, with a starting price of US$495. Available on the web at store.sonicstudio.com, PreMaster CD is also sold through Sonic Studioâ€™s international network of pro audio distributors and channel partners.
