NUGEN Audio updates MasterCheck Pro to v1.4 - FLAC and Opus Support

NUGEN Audio has announced availability of v1.4 of MasterCheck Pro, adding FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) and Opus encoding support. Opus is one of the YouTube formats; FLAC is often used for downloads as it is a high-quality (lossless) format - exploited by self-styled High Fidelity Music Streaming service TIDAL, for example.

Why add a lossless codec?

Like other lossless formats, FLAC uses compression algorithms that preserve audio data so the audio is exactly the same as the original source (input=output). On the face of it, this is true... when encoding within the same bit depth, like for like. However, this is not what happens when audio exits a DAW destined for FLAC, as FLAC is usually used to encode at 16-bit, but this conversion from 32 to 16-bit is not guaranteed lossless. FLAC also uses integers while DAWs deploy floating-point representations, so there is an additional complication even when producing a 32-bit FLAC stream. MasterCheck Pro can now be used to audition those conversions.

MasterCheck Pro is available to purchase as a 32- and 64-bit-supporting AAX-, AU-, VST-, and VST3-compatible plug-in for Mac (OS X 10.7 and above) and Windows (Vista and above) directly from NUGEN Audio for £126.00 GBP (ex. VAT) / $199.00 USD / €155.00 Euro (ex. VAT).
