Audition Codecs in Real-Time

We spend our professional lives making mixes sound as good as they can – and then hand them on for encoding and distribution. Later we often wish we could have made some improvements.

What if there was a way to audition and compare up to five audio codecs in real-time? Enter the Fraunhofer Pro-Codec plugin.

Its intuitive display helps you quickly focus on key issues such as codec effect on frequencies, audible artifacts, and codec-induced overloads. Optimize your mix for specific formats, such as AAC or mp3, before encoding it using the plugin or the separate manager application for background batch processing.


  • Real-time auditioning & encoding with glitchless switching 
  • Supported Codecs: MP3, Apple AAC iTunes+ (Mac only) AAC-LC, HE-AAC - MPEG Surround, AAC-LC & HE-AAC multichannel, HD-AAC 
  • Select up to 5 codecs for simultaneous real-time encode 
  • Batch processing using dedicated Manager application
  • Comprehensive metadata editing
  • ABX mode for blind statistical testing
  • DIFF monitoring; listen to effect of codec on input signal
