Korg Offers Free Audiogate Conversion Software, Providing Playback, Conversion and Editing

Korg offers its powerful FREE AudioGate software, for all music creators and listeners alike. This file conversion, editing and authoring software had previously only been available bundled with Korg's acclaimed MR Series of DSD recorders. By releasing this software for free, Korg is providing a solution for all music content owners and creators to deliver their art in the highest resolution possible.

AudioGate enables the realtime playback of DSD/SACD files on any computer system, with any audio hardware. Powerful dithering algorithms are provided, along with editing tools such as divide, merge, normalize, fade-in/fade-out and DC cut. Users can convert from 5.6 MHz or 2.8 MHz 1-bit audio files to any other format, including 16- or 24-bit PCM (up to 192 kHz sample rates), Apple Lossless or AAC, FLAC, Broadcast WAV (up to 32-bit floating supported), and even MP3 formats. It can be used to burn audio CD's, and the newer DSD Disc format (2.8 MHz sample rate), which can be played back on a growing number of devices.

In today's world of terabyte hard drives and ultra-fast digital pipelines, there is no longer any need to utilize compressed formats with compromised fidelity. In fact, the world has gotten used to working with high-resolution video on an everyday basis, and Korg's intent is that likewise, music delivery and enjoyment has no reason to remain compromised. By giving everyone the tools they need to enjoy high resolution audio and to repurpose it for any device or situation, the market can offer their customers music that is closest to the aural experience the artist had when performing and recording it.

Korg's AudioGate software is included with all MR Series recorders. It has been released for free to everyone on all of Korg's international websites. Non-MR recorder owners can activate the software by entering an active Twitter account.
