Sonnox Fraunhofer Pro Codec

I was just wondering if anyone has run the demo or purchased this plug in, and what your thoughts/experiences were from using it.

Pro-Codec Product Overview

It looks interesting and could be a real time saver in many ways, being able to audition different codecs and also to render out the audio in up to five different codecs simultaneously.
It also includes AB and blind ABX testing ability between the different codecs.

I am about to download the demo, but I just thought I would get the ball rolling, and see if anyone else is using it.

I've demoed it and also wrote a review for a pro audio magazine and my conclusion was that the Pro-Codec was great. No bugs, works really well, has every function you would want when working with codecs and I have nothing but good things to say about it. It just works, saves your time and improves your workflow.

It's on my list of to buy stuff now.

No, it's not out yet. And even when it will come out, it won't be free and it's a portuguese only magazine. Sorry!

As far as I know no, there's no alternative to the Pro-Codec as is.

Once my clients start asking me to make MP3s for them, this will be a must-buy. For now, they don't ask all that often.

I have used it and found it very helpful. In particular it's good to be able to AB listen to the codecs and what they actually do to your programme in real time - it can be quite a surprise! It certainly reveals what many have tried to cover up or overlook.

But at the same time it gives you the opportunity to avoid some of the worst of it by aiming for the intended output listener format, because you can mix and master with this plug-in in actually place :-)

I just wish I had more control over how the programme will actually be played out on the customer's systems...

I would be much more interested to purchase if there was a LAME option on there... but I doubt that the Fraunhofer folk would care to oblige me on that one.
