    Tascam has released a free program designed to convert and edit hi-res DSD: DSF, DSDIFF, and PCM/.Wav files.

    I don't know anything about it - I've downloaded it to see what potential benefits it might have for me - but I haven't actually used it yet, so don't kill the messenger. I'm posting this strictly as a forum/public service announcement. ;)
    - d.t.



    (installation note: when I installed it, it seemed to "hang" for a little bit on the "finishing installation" status bar. I was just about to go to Task Manager to manually stop the process, thinking it had frozen, when it did actually finish the install on its own... so be patient at the end of the install, it may take a few minutes.)

    For DSD, it supports 2.8, 5.6, and 11.2 MHz, and for PCM/Wav, it will support rates from 44.1kHz up to 384kHz, at 16, 24 and 32 bit. (Further details below)

    From Tascam:

    Editing of high-resolution DSD/PCM files possible

    Supports DSD files at 2.8, 5.6 and 11.2 MHz and PCM
    files at 44.1–384 kHz and 16, 24 and 32-bit

    Supports audio sources with one or two channels
    (mono, stereo)

    Supports Windows (Windows standard and ASIO 2.1
    audio drivers)

    DSD native playback, which allows direct conversion
    of DSD to analog, is possible using a TEAC UD-501 or
    another DSD-compatible audio device

    Waveform display is possible and allows intervals
    between set IN and OUT points to be converted and

    Short fades can be added at IN/OUT points during file
    output (function can be turned on/off )

    Audio file formats and sampling frequencies, for
    example, can be converted
    Format conversion: PCM

    Convert sampling frequencies and quantization bit
    depths as desired

    Combine function can be used to join two audio files

    Editing with just a computer is possible


    FWIW :)
