We just released version 1.4 of the Auphonic Leveler Batch Processor with many new features and fixes, including a new preset system, much faster processing (parallelization), algorithm improvements and more.
Updates in Version 1.4
The following new features were added:
Parallelization of Individual Algorithms:
Algorithms are now computed in parallel, also if you only process one single file.
This brings a big speed improvement when processing only one long recording, like for example a long podcast.
It is now possible to create, load and manage presets in the Auphonic Leveler desktop program – see the screenshot above for details!
- Audio Algorithm Improvements:
All audio algorithms come with many improvements, fixes and updated classifiers with data from our web service.
- Mono Mixdown:
As many requested this feature, we added the possibility to generate a mono mixdown of the processed audio files.
- Selectable Temporary Processing Directory:
You can now select a directory on your computer, where Auphonic puts its temporary files during processing. Choose a directory on a SSD for faster processing!
- New Loudness Targets: -19LUFS
We added a few additional loudness targets, for example -19 LUFS.
Fixes for Mac OS X:
The auto update feature, introduced in version 1.3, did have some problems on OS X which are fixed now. Mac users of version 1.3 still have to update manually for the last time – on Windows everything works as it should!
Menubar not visible:
On OS X 10.9 and 10.10, the menubar was sometimes not visible at first startup – this is fixed now.
New Code Signing:
Apple introduced a new code signing system for OS X 10.9.5 and later. We changed to the new system – you should not get any warnings by gatekeeper anymore!
