Sonnox has announced that musicians, DJs, producers and engineers seeking an affordable solution to encode music for the web can now rely on the new Codec Toolbox. A collaboration between plug-in developer Sonnox and mp3 inventor Fraunhofer IIS, Codec Toolbox offers real-time codec auditioning, metadata editing and batch encoding, for £35 GBP (approx. $55. ex. sales tax.)
Sonnox Sales & Marketing Manager explains, "The impact made by the Pro-Codec on the professional mastering world convinced us that today's generation of independent producers, engineers and artists need their music to sound great in every format. The Codec Toolbox uses high quality codecs from Fraunhofer and Apple to ensure that every mix sounds as good online as it does in the studio."
Codec Toolbox is comprised of two applications: the Toolbox Plug-In, for real-time mix auditioning through various codecs; and, the Toolbox Manager, for encoding and adding metadata. A 'clip safe' function ensures clean encoded files, as the software auto-compensates for any overs during the encode process.
The Codec Toolbox is available to try for 15-days or to purchase for £35 (approx. $55. ex. sales tax.) at www.sonnox.com/codectoolbox
