Which Encoder Do You Use? EAC, dBpoweramp, Leawo, Or Other?


Recommended Posts

Just interested in what other people out there may be using for their digital Audio conversion? I happen to use and love dBpowerAMP (with Fraunhoffer codec, the best!), and Switch. Edited by Urban Hitz Radio

Fraunhoffer codec all the way, AAC HE is awesome. After all the documentation and research over the last 24 Hrz, Im pretty sure OPUS is going to become the next universal codec (think of it replacing the MP3), But then again, their is no reason OGG Vorbis or OGG Flac shouldn't of wiped MP3 off the map. Even though OGG Flac was roughly 1 MB UP.....

 

I never messed with DBpowerAMP, I used to run programs for overprocessing live, but I found that overprocessing using the sound cards designers programs (CREATIVE* SB) works pretty good. I still use Jamin when I want to overprocess IDJC (reminds me, must finish tutorial tonight!) but only when I get the wild hair to use it.

 

The current developer of EDcast (soon to be RIOcast) is using EDcast AISO, which the idea of an encoder that pushes out AISO amped soundcard data is pretty awesome. Just because SB Audigy 2 and X-FI can be tweaked with AISO to put out 32bit processing of sounds. Been thinking of making the switch to this encoder.

When do you think Opus will become more mainstream and used with programs like SAM, eDCast, RadioDJ, etc? I read their documentation and it looks like Opus means Business. Looks like their platform beats all others (HE AAC) hands down, huh?

 

I'm currently a SAM 4.9.6 user, and I so want to dump MP3's in favor of FLAC. So I'm waiting to see if version 5 supports FLAC and/or MP3 Surround Sound encoding.

The only program that I know of that Supports FLAC is Zara Studio 2, but I've never used it.

I encode with DBpowerAMP in 320kbps with 2 DPS. Trim Silence & Volume Normalize. I am totally satisfied with the results. I run SAM 4.9.6 as well. Disabled ALL SAM processing. SAM is encoding in ACC 64kbps using SA Stereo Tool for processing.

 

I think our station ATC Radio finally has a good sound, not over processed with being able to keep good audio quality.

Fre:ac is what I use for when I need to encode FLAC files to MP3 files, like when a program doesn't support FLAC.

 

For streaming, I use the inbuild support for encoding to Shout/Icecast servers in my automation program. Which can use Lame for MP3, TwoLame for MP2, Ogg Opus, Vorbis and FLAC and the Winamp HE-AAC encoder.
