Professional audio technology company Aphex has introduced the Audio Xciter Music App, a mobile application designed to improve the quality of digital audio through the use of their proprietary Xciter digital signal processor. The app, which works with music as well as audio books and podcasts, makes audio sound more dynamic with Low, Medium, and High presets as well as the ability for users to adjust parameters for a custom setting.
“Heavily compressed digital music files reduce sonic performance in music recordings,” said Aphex CEO David Wiener. “We’ve leveraged our professional studio technology and created Audio Xciter to restore the detail, richness and spaciousness to your audio experience. The result is a more immersive sound that more accurately reflects the original intentions of the artists, engineers and producers. All the musicians and producers we work with think this is a revolutionary product for mobile music.”
Currently the Audio Xciter app is only available for iOS devices, though an Android version is on the way. Aphex is offering a free version that limits enhanced playback to 15 minutes a day in addition to the Basic version.
Audio Xciter Studio allows users further tweaking abilities on the Xciter’s DSP settings. The launch price is $2.99 for Audio Xciter and $4.99 for Audio Xciter Studio. A portion of the proceeds go to Respect the Music, Aphex’s foundation for supporting music and arts education.
The Audio Xciter App apps are compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and requires iOS 5.0 or later.
