SOUND4 x1 .CL is based on a true processing chain dedicated to webstreaming and features the “Predictive HQSound” algorithm which optimizes codec results and reduces compression-induced sound artifacts.
Based on the HQ SOUND 192 kHz engine, a SOUND4 patented technology, the processing chain is composed of an advanced Wideband AGC, 4-band EQ, Tone FX, Stereo FX, 3-band processing, 4-band limiter with special high-end management for reducing streaming artifacts, and for finishing a super efficient final limiter with an Over Drive mode for getting a sound more solid when needed. In short, all you need to make your streams sound's perfect!
SOUND4 x1 .CL is fully compliant with loudness standard, truepeak respectful, users can set the loudness barrier where they want!
In real life, there are always compromises, in the typical application of streaming processing, it is crucial to not consume tones of CPU for a maximum of efficiency. Imagine when the need is for hundreds and hundreds of channels... x1 is the first processor in the world in terms of sound performances and CPU consumption: less than 250MHz per instance! Just imagine, 400 instances on a 16 cores processor running at 5 GHz, SOUND4 is the only in the world who can provide this!
Ergonomics is the obsession at SOUND4, x1 .CL is fully controlled thanks to a nice and user-friendly HTM5 GUI...
