Melville, NY - May 29, 2009 - Korg's MR Series recorders - the MR-1, MR-1000 and MR-2000S - include the Audiogate file management/conversion software free with every recorder. The newly released Audiogate version 2.0 includes many new features.
Audiogate 2.0's new file editing tools include normalize, allowing files to be exported at their highest level without clipping. The output level range has also been improved from +/-24dB to +/-60dB, and the peak level metering has been improved for better visual monitoring. When converting from one digital format to another, Audiogate 2.0 includes standard TPDF dithering, plus Korg's own enhanced Aqua dithering that closely follows human hearing characteristics.
Audiogate 2.0 can be used to create DSD audio discs that preserve the audio fidelity of 1-bit recording made on the MR-Series recorders. In addition to existing single-bit DSD/DSF and multi-bit BWAV formats, Audiogate 2.0 is now able to import and export FLAC files. Windows Media Audio can now be imported in the Mac version of Audiogate 2.0. Additionally, MP3 and Windows Media Audio (WMA Professional and WMA Lossless) can be exported in Windows, and AAC and Apple Lossless can be exported from Mac. Tracks from existing audio CDs can be loaded directly into Audiogate 2.0, with support for embedded graphic images also added.
Korg MR-Series owners can download Audiogate version 2.0 at the Korg website.
