San Francisco, CA (January 7, 2004)–Yesterday at Macworld, Octiv announced availability of its Volume Logic audio plug-in for Apple’s iTunes player. Volume Logic runs on Mac OS X and provides real-time digital remastering for improved sound quality for iTunes. Volume Logic sells for $19.95 and is available through Octiv’s web site and other popular Mac online sites for a free two-week trial.
Available since mid-October through a public beta program which ran until December 31, 2003, Octiv’s Volume Logic plug-in digitally re-masters audio in real-time. Any iTunes audio, including MP3s, AACs, Internet radio, or CDs, will automatically be digitally remastered for consistent volume level and spectral balance. Low levels are intelligently raised and loud signals are kept under control, all in real-time.
The Volume Logic plug-in incorporates a 5-band dynamics processor that examines and adjusts the audio thousands of times a second. Files are not scanned or modified, and all the audio processing takes place in real-time while the audio is sent to your speakers or headphones.
Octiv was able to make their audio processing technology compatible with iTunes by working with Rogue Amoeba’s Audio Hijack technology that enables the recording of audio from any application.
