fre:ac v1.1 Alpha 20180306
Tuesday, 06 March 2018 22:37

fre:ac v1.1 Alpha 20180306 has been released and is now available for download!

This release expands on the DSP framework groundwork laid in the previous alpha. It adds new DSP components for sample format and channel conversion and does such conversions automatically where necessary. As a result, you can now join tracks with different sample formats into a single output file.

The new release also adds an RNNoise based DSP component featuring noise reduction for speech and the Rubber Band component which lets you speed up or slow down recordings without changing the pitch.

In addition, and besides numerous minor improvements, the new version includes the latest codec versions and fixes several minor issues.

Upgrading to the 20180306 release is recommended for users of previous alpha or snapshot releases. Please be aware, however, that this is a preview release and not meant for daily work. Please report issues on the SourceForge bug tracker or by email to support@freac.org.

The new release is available in the downloads section.

Sunday, 19 November 2017 18:30

fre:ac v1.1 Alpha 20171119 has been released and is now available for download!

This release introduces the long awaited DSP framework which paves the way for future support of things like volume normalization or noise reduction. For now, there is a resampling DSP that can be used to change the sample rate of the converted audio.

The new version also adds support for the Monkey's Audio lossless format on macOS, Linux and FreeBSD. Previously, only decoding of Monkey's audio files was supported on these platforms through avconv/ffmpeg.

In addition, the new release updates the FAAC/FAAD2 and LAME codecs to their latest versions, fixes some instabilities and corrects various minor bugs.

Upgrading to the 20171119 release is recommended for users of previous alpha or snapshot releases. Please be aware, however, that this is a preview release and not meant for daily work. Please report issues on the SourceForge bug tracker or by email to support@freac.org.
