Fraunhofer Pro-Codec

Utility by Sonnox

We spend our professional lives making mixes sound as good as they can – and then hand them on for encoding and distribution. Later we often wish we could have made some improvements. 

What if there was a way to audition and compare up to five audio codecs in real time? Enter the Fraunhofer Pro-Codec Plug-In. 

Its intuitive display helps you quickly focus on key issues such as codec effect on frequencies, audible artefacts and codec-induced overloads. Optimize your mix for specific formats, such as AAC or mp3, before encoding it using the Plug-In or the separate Manager application for background batch processing.

    • mp3, Apple AAC iTunes+ (Mac only) AAC-LC, HE-AAC

  • Select up to 5 codecs for simultaneous real-time encode
