Sonnox Fraunhofer Pro-Codec Version 2 Ships – Featuring Apple AAC iTunes Plus Codec And MPEG Surround Support

Oxford, UK – September 13, 2012: Fraunhofer IIS, the world’s renowned source for audio and multimedia technologies, and innovative plug-in designer/manufacturer Sonnox Ltd. today announce the second generation Sonnox Fraunhofer Pro-Codec Plug-In. Initially released in 2011 to global praise, the Pro-Codec Version 2 introduces the ability to master for iTunes and supports the latest multi-channel audio codecs.

For the first time, the Pro-Codec Plug-In enables engineers to use Apple’s iTunes Plus codec for real-time auditioning, making it a powerful time-saving tool to efficiently mix directly for the “Mastered for iTunes” program. Sonnox has added Apple’s iTunes Plus codec to the Plug-In to enable the exact clipping behavior of the iTunes encoding chain to be monitored, and levels corrected if necessary, saving time and ensuring high quality output during the mixing process.

In addition, Sonnox and Fraunhofer have integrated the latest MPEG Surround codec along with Advanced Audio Coding Low Complexity (AAC-LC) multi-channel and High Efficiency Advanced Audio Coding (HE-AAC) multi-channel support, making the codecs conveniently available for producers of surround music. These codecs provide superior audio quality for surround sound mixing and are used in surround broadcasting and streaming.

The Pro-Codec Version 2 continues to provide Fraunhofer implementations of all major MPEG audio codecs and lossless codecs such as mp3 High Definition (mp3HD) and High Definition Advanced Audio Coding (HD-AAC). This establishes the Pro-Codec as the most powerful codec plug-in available for digital audio workstations.

Version 2 of the Sonnox Fraunhofer Pro-Codec Plug-In is available now at the same price as Version 1 at $495. A free upgrade will be available for Version 1 owners.
