Aphex Audio Xciter app
Aphex’s Audio Xciter claims to be ‘the first audio app that dynamically improves the quality of digital music (as well as audiobooks and podcasts) on Apple iOS devices’.
In line with Aphex Chairman/CEO David Wiener’s ‘drive to end the debate about poor audio quality in digital devices’, Audio Xciter uses proprietary Aphex DSP technology to improve the quality of music by analysing and enhancing the audio signal in real time.
‘Heavily compressed digital music files reduce sonic performance in music recordings,’ said Wiener. ‘We’ve leveraged our professional studio technology and created Audio Xciter to restore the detail, richness and spaciousness to your audio experience. The result is a more immersive sound that more accurately reflects the original intentions of the artists, engineers and producers. All the musicians and producers we work with think this is a revolutionary product for mobile music.’
The free Audio Xciter app allows 15 minutes of enhanced playback per day. Users have two upgrade options: Audio Xciter Basic removes the time restriction and Audio Xciter Studio allows users to fine-tune the Xciter DSP settings.
The iOS app is available now with an Android version to follow in August 2012.
The launch pricing is US$2.99 for Audio Xciter (US$4.99 after 31 July 2012) and US$7.99/£5.49 for Audio Xciter Studio (US$9.99 after 31 July). Audio Xciter can be purchased through iTunes for iOS and will soon be available at the Android Store and Amazon.com for Android devices.
The app is available via the iTunes Store.
