Channel D Software today released Pure Vinyl 1.1, a Universal Binary package of audio applications designed specifically for the high quality digital transcription and playback of vinyl LP records.
Pure Vinyl uniquely combines a fun and intuitive "scratch" style grab-and-spin editor with realistic, "virtual vinyl" platter images, rendered from the digitized audio. Automatic gain riding and looping insures accurate track location, even in the presence of vinyl background noise.
A high quality resampling feature simultaneously saves CD format audio while monitoring and recording raw or equalized audio at sample rates up to 192 kHz. Editing operations are nondestructive, and precision, 64-bit real-time inverse RIAA equalization is included. A free, built-in visualizer feature fetches tracks from iTunes playlists and creates an entertaining animation of spinning, "45 RPM" vinyl discs.
Pure Vinyl is priced at $129 (until September, when the introductory price becomes $179) for Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
