Sound Magic has released Neo Reference, a new tool for the final processing of digital music. It is provided as a Windows VST plug-in or Add-on for Supreme Piano 2 and costs €49.
Neo Reference combines several of Sound Magic's custom dithering and noise shaping algorithms. These algorithms will change the sound of music and they will let you find the best timbre for your individual style. Each dither and noise shape has its own unique timbre.
Neo Reference can be used to show its users what their music will sound like on different playback devices. This feature allows users to preview their music as it would sound in their car, iPhone, on a boom box - or an audiophile system.
Sound Magic says "By Using Sound Magic Award Winning Modeling Technology, Neo Reference uses different algorithms to emulate the Signal to Noise Ratio, Stereo Crosstalk and Frequency Response Curve of the several most commonly used playback devices. Evaluate the sound quality of the music on different playback devices. Hear what the music will sound like on HIFI devices, Computer Audio, Car Audio, Mobile Phones and MP3 players. Make your style of music explode on all of these devices, adjusting your sounds for optimal playback - without having to run out to your car with a CD that you just burned. The music will sound better and more balanced on all of these devices, not just on monitors. Users can even use it to make different versions of their music to better market to specific customer groups - which may lead to more music sales."
