Philips launches its new DSD plug-in for users of the Digidesign Pro Tools Digital Audio Workstations on the Macintosh platform. The DSD plug-in is offered both as a separate plug-in as well as in combination with the SA-CD Creator application as the SA-CD Creator Pack for Macintosh. The total solution allows creation of SA-CD disc images and cutting masters, supporting studios and record labels in bringing their new Super Audio CD titles to the market.
This latest version of Philips' DSD plug-in converts PCM audio (2, 5 or 6 channels) into the DSD files required for SA-CD mastering, bringing easy SA-CD creation to the majority of studios and mastering houses using Macintosh computers. It complements the Philips DSD plug-in version for Windows-based PC platforms, which was introduced at the AES Convention held in Berlin, Germany, last May.
The Philips SA-CD Creator Pack with DSD plug-in will be distributed in the USA by Sonic Studio, LLC (www.sonicstudio.com), a developer and supplier of PCM and DSD digital audio workstations, signal processing applications and software. They will offer the Philips DSD Plug-in for both the Windows and Macintosh platforms, as well as SA-CD Creator application and other PhilipsSA-CD solutions.
In Europe, Philips SA-CD solutions are distributed by MediArte GmbH. MediArte is a division of TransTec B.V. located in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and has resellers over a wide range of countries in Europe.
