Advanced Playback Console

With Audirvāna’s new Advanced Playback Console, you can completely tune the software’s operation to best suit both your usage habits and your system. With its new dashboard, it brings together all the available audio settings, and you follow exactly what’s going on and ultimately truly take control.

The new dashboard shows:
• the settings related to your computer
• those related to the selected output device
• each stage of the audio processing

Each section gives access to advanced settings windows. As soon as you close a window, changes you made are visible in the dashboard. Everything is implemented in order to help you quickly get total possession of this crucial tool and follow you throughout your musical journey.

Computer settings may vary depending on your operating system. You can always control the CPU load and the memory used, but you can also change the audio driver used in Windows10, or the status of the SysOptimizer under MacOS, for example.

The available output device settings depend on the information shared by your system, and more specifically the converter (DAC) to which Audirvāna sends the digital audio stream. This normally includes input resolution limits, MQA compatibility as well as settings.

The different processing stages are presented in chronological order: loading/decoding, processing, oversampling, replay gain, volume control and DAC input. Depending on your settings, not all of these stages result in actual processing. The first ones are grouped in a “buffering” area, indicating that these stages are performed when buffering the file before playback. The following ones take place during playback and can therefore be changed on the fly.

Finally, with its HD certifier, Audirvāna checks the consistency between the supposed resolution of the file (i.e., the one contained in the file description) and the reality of the audio data it contains, which sometimes is different.

The HD certifier is based on an algorithm specially developed for this purpose by a leading research establishment in digital audio processing.

Comprehensive In-App technical assistance

Stop searching for the user manual! It is in the application, directly where you need it, in the language you have chosen.

First, the dashboard layout has been designed for you to visually understand what is going on.

Furthermore, for each section of the audio settings dashboard, an “information” icon allows you to open a help window that explains the nature of these settings, what the different parameters mean, and what they do from a technical standpoint.

You can check a point if you are unsure or browse through its section by section to get a more complete understanding of the possibilities.
