    Exciting news.


    SARACON - sampling rate conversion software for Windows ®
    for PCM and DSD

    Finally - the last Sampling Rate Converter you may ever need: SARACON from Weiss.

    A versatile multichannel file format and sampling rate conversion tool of utmost quality. All standard sampling rates between 44.1kHz and 384kHz are supported. And DSD too. POW-R dithering is also included of course. Runs on Windows platforms.

    (If you rather prefer a Mac version, email weiss@weiss.ch


    * Sampling Rates (input/output): 44.1k, 48k, 88.2k, 96k, 176.4k, 192k, 352.8k, 384k, DSD (DSD input in preparation)
    o (SARACON-Light: 44.1k, 48k, 88.2k, 96k)

    * Wordlengths (input/output): 16/20/24/32 bit fixed point, 32/64 IEEE float, DSD (DSD input in preparation)

    * File Formats (input/output): wav, au, aiff, dsdiff (DSD input in preparation)

    * Wordlength Reduction Methods: Flat TPDF dither, POW-r 1, POW-r 2, POW-r 3

    * THD+N PCM to PCM: better than –180dB for 32 Bit fixed point I/O, unweighted

    * THD+N PCM to DSD: better than –147dB for 32 Bit fixed point Input, unweighted

    * Number of channels: PCM to PCM: unlimited, PCM to DSD: up to six
    o (SARACON-Light: 2 channels)

    * Weiss quality conversion algorithms

    * Ergonomic user interface

    * Built in sine-generator for testing purposes

    * Specific for DSD:
    o Extensive DSD Conversion analysis
    o Log files
    o Selectable interpolation / decimation filter sets for DSD conversion
    o Flexible input to output channel routing
    o Different modulators selectable, each with ist own options like gain, dithering etc.
    o Upsampler characteristics selectable (different interpolators)
    o Log window shows time tagged events (e.g. overs)
    o Non-volatile level / peak meter / history with full featured viewer. See screen shot example here.

    * In preparation: batch mode processing, DSD to PCM conversion

    System Requirements:

    * Intel Pentium 4 Processor
    * Windows 2000 or XP
    * 256MB RAM (recommended)
    * Screen Resolution of 1024x768 (recommended)
    * One USB port for Dongle
