Audirvāna is an ideal solution to manage and organize your local music library.
Compatible with all audio formats, it can synchronize with multiple source folders. You can view and update the information about your music either manually or by using an automatic online search for missing data.
synchronized access to your music folders without size limitation including iTunes/Music
recovery of missing metadata in the library
Audirvāna natively supports all audio formats, including multi-channel, used by professionals and music enthusiasts such as WAV, AIFF, FLAC, ALAC, MQA and DSD etc., with no resolution limit other than the DAC itself, typically 32 bits and a sampling rate of 768 kHz (or DSD512).
Audirvāna also fetches your music where it is stored. We have simplified the addition of music process in Audirvāna, with an easy drag and drop option of new files directly into a playlist.
For a more permanent addition, you can synchronize different folders containing your music from the ‘local’ menu in the settings. Audirvāna will then automatically update the library at each startup. If you are a Mac user, you can also synchronize your iTunes Music library in the same manner. Folders may be directly stored on your computer, or on an external hard drive connected via USB or a network, on a NAS for example.
Your stored files remain intact. Audirvāna copies and processes the file you play on the fly without keeping it in memory. Only your files’ metadata can be modified from within the app if you choose to.
Finally, in order to prevent volume jumps during playback between a playlist’s different tracks, the Replay Gain mode allows you to automatically adjust the volume between tracks and maintain a consistent playback level. The adjustment is based on a sound level reference for each track, according to the EBU R128 and DR standards. If the reference is not available in the track’s metadata, Audirvāna will calculate it. The Replay Gain can also be applied to songs streamed from a partner service provided that it makes this information available, such as TIDAL.
Metadata refers to the non-musical information contained in an audio file, for example the title, album, artist, composer, year, or cover artwork. Metadata is essential for browsing, identifying, and sorting your music files.
We wanted to give them the place they deserve in your musical experience. Entirely redesigned for you, our new metadata editor has been added in the toolbar to allow you to easily display, modify and complete a selected or played title’s metadata. This includes a specific section dedicated to classical music with its dedicated information (Soloist, Conductor, Ensemble, Instrument, Style and Period).
A data recovery function is also now available. When activated, it allows you to retrieve some information that could be missing for a selected track, album or artist and available on online databases (except images). If you wish to, the app can also check and replace incomplete or inaccurate existing data.
Audirvāna will not add new metadata to your files if the recovery feature is not enabled. The software only creates a default album name (using the name of the album folder). Every change you manually make is saved both in the Audirvāna database and in the original file, making it much easier for you to preserve your audio files and their related information.
Note that the tracks and albums’ metadata, when played from a streaming service can be displayed, but cannot be modified. They are provided by music labels and are often limited to the cover art, title, album and artist. Some streaming services like QOBUZ include much more metadata information, such as the name of the composer for example.
When ripping a CD, you can use your CD ripper to get the metadata online as the files on a CD do not contain any information. If you are ripping a SACD, you will need to generate a DSF or DFF file to be able to modify your metadata in Audirvāna. Audirvāna does not edit data sheets.
