The Codec Toolbox is a collaboration between plug-in developer Sonnox and MP3 creator Fraunhofer IIS, which offers real-time codec auditioning, metadata editing and batch encoding, for only £35 (approx. €30). Sonnox sales and marketing manager Nathan Eames explained: “The impact made by the Pro-Codec on the professional mastering world convinced us that today’s generation of independent producers, engineers and artists need their music to sound great in every format. The Codec Toolbox uses high quality codecs from Fraunhofer and Apple to ensure that every mix sounds as good online as it does in the studio.” Codec Toolbox is comprised of two applications: the Toolbox Plug-In, for real-time mix auditioning through various codecs; and the Toolbox Manager, for encoding and adding metadata. A ‘clip safe’ function ensures clean encoded files, as the software auto-compensates for any overs during the encode process. www.sonnox.com
