The Music Microscope
The MusicScope is a high precision software audio analyzer and measuring tool that works as an Audio-Microscope to visualize the different quality aspects of a music collection.
The implementation of international audio standards (EBU R128 and ITU-R BS-1770) allows a full comparability to professional studio software but with the advantage of being usable without the deep knowledge of an audio engineer. It is possible to analyze digital music but also analog sources like LPs or tape records.
Integrated modules (Jitter- and THD-Analyzer) allow the measurement of HiFi-Components (e.g. Digital to Analog Converters or Headphone Amplifiers).
Enhance your Listening Experience
The AudioRepair Tool works on the most prominent issues like Inter Sample Peaks and Frequency Response deviation of today’s digital standard recordings (16Bit/44.1kHz) to enhance the listening experience.
HPEX the Headphone Experience transforms your audio tracks for the most intense and engaging way of music enjoyment without the so-called In-Head effect while listening with your favourite Headphone.
Sample Rate Converter
XiSRC is a high quality software Sample Rate Converter to optimize your audio files for playback by adapting the sample rate and bit depth. High precision conversion algorithms ensure a perfectly preserved audio integrity.
Automatic Audio Analyzing
The MusicScope Server offers the permanent monitoring of an input folder to analyze new incoming audio files automatically.
Comprehensive configuration possibilities make it easy to define several automated actions. Autonomous algorithms sort out suspicious audio files to be examined at a later stage.
Extensive reports of different formats (Text, JSON or Graphical) summarize all measurement results for an offline evaluation.
The MusicScope Server is especially interesting for media companies (e.g. Streaming Provider, Digital Content Distributors, etc.) who need to check the quality aspects of hundreds of audio files every day.
FLAC Entropy Optimizer
XiFEO optimizes the entropy of high resolution audio files to make sure that a standard FLAC encoder achieves in average a 30% – 50% higher compression rate.
This is useful for mobile high resolution audio players with limited memory or streaming services that need to use their available bandwidth efficiently.
The HUM Suppressor removes very efficiently power line hum of 50 Hz and 60 Hz as well as their harmonic frequencies up to 5 kHz and 6 kHz.
Power line hum is a huge problem for high impedance measurements (e.g. electrophysiological measurements like EEG, EKG and EMG).
Music recordings via the High-Z input are also prone to induced power line hum.
VERY LOW FREQUENCY RECEIVER
The Very Low Frequency Receiver is a Software Defined Radio (SDR), which makes it possible to receive radio frequencies between 0 Hz – 96 kHz. There is merely a need for a sound card with a line-in input and a “Magnetic Loop” antenna, build from a 0.5 m square frame with 40 windings of enameled copper wire.
