HighEnd Encoder mit wenig Schwächen
Lutz1153, 22.02.2014
Es sind bei mir einige Sonnox Plugins im Einsatz, und der ProCodec ist ebenso hochwertig wie die anderen Tools von Sonnox.

Für das schnelle MP3 während Produktionen reicht mir das aus, was z.B. von Steinberg in Cubase oder WL mitgeliefert wird

Wenn man aber mastert und Release-Files macht und dafür genau auf Qualitätsverluste achten möchte, dann ist der Procodec perfekt.
Realtime-A/B Vergleiche werden z.B. ebenso unterstützt wie eine Kontrolle von möglichem Clipping beim Encoden. Außerdem können Files mit verschiedenen Bitraten parallel erzeugt werden.

Allerdings wäre es schön, wenn man auch gleich alle Tags bearbeiten könnte. Der Procodec unterstützt das nicht, und man muss danach mit einem separaten Tool arbeiten. Deswegen gebe ich bei den Features nur 4 Sterne.

Ach ja: der Procodec erfordert zwingend den ILOK2!
