BitPerfect (was: Audirvana Alternatives) - Page 36

post #526 of 742
Thread Starter 

There is a version 1.0 in the works.

 

So far, I'm hoping to include:

 

  • New, 64-bit audio engine
  • SoX sample rate conversion
  • Optimized CoreAudio sample rate conversion
  • Dithering (not sure which algorithms I'll be using yet)
  • Optimizations for "complex" DACs
  • Audio Unit support (might come in an update rather than 1.0)

 

I'm also investigating improvements to iTunes integration to work around certain bugs and potentially minimize iTunes activity (which should increase sound quality.) There are some other  ideas for sound quality improvements I have in mind, but I need to test those ideas first, as yet I do not know if they will yield any improvement.

 

I'm hoping to get a version out, at least a beta, before the new year. Sorry for the delays!

Glad to hear of the upcoming changes, and hope they are available real soon. wink.gif

Sounds great! Having just bought Bit Perfect last week, it's already a big step up in terms of SQ compared to iTunes. Can't wait for the updates for Bit Perfect. Could do with additional features and an improved interface. With regards to SQ, Bit Perfect is on the right track. smily_headphones1.gif

I'm pretty new to the world of hifi and my "system" is currently composed by CA DacMagic Plus and Sennheiser HD-650.

 

 

On my MacBook Pro I have also a Windows partition and I normally use Foobar to play music. I was looking for something similar for Mac when I found this topic.

I read many posts in it and I downloaded one of the "betas" of BetterSound. Well, I didn't expect to hear such a difference! This program is truly a-w-e-s-o-m-e. And considering I was using a relatively old version of it I can't immagine how the program is now.

I will very likely get BitPerfect as soon as v1.0 is ready.

 

Keep up the good work!!!

Glad you like it, version 1.0 is nearing completion (finally!) :)

Will there be a fix in the future where when you listen to iTunes and you want to play other audio or video files, the external sound won't be played via the built in speakers?

 

Otherwise, I love your app!

From where can I get a copy to try BitPerfect? GoogleDocs gives me this: - Sorry, we are unable to retrieve the document for viewing or you don't have permission to view the document.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Currently they're only available through Apple apps store. I'm not sure if there's a trial copy there but its worth taking a look!

uelover is correct, there is no trial and it is only available through the App Store. That said, Apple do allow you to "return" it for a refund if you don't like it.

Do you have an estimated timeframe for the release of 1.0?

It is "In Review" chez Apple, hopefully not too much longer...
