LosslessCut ~ Lossless Audio Video Editing


The swiss army knife of lossless video / audio editing

LosslessCut aims to be the ultimate cross platform FFmpeg GUI for extremely fast and lossless operations on video, audio, subtitle and other related media files. The main feature is lossless trimming and cutting of video and audio files, which is great for saving space by rough-cutting your large video files taken from a video camera, GoPro, drone, etc. It lets you quickly extract the good parts from your videos and discard many gigabytes of data without doing a slow re-encode and thereby losing quality. Or you can add a music or subtitle track to your video without needing to encode. Everything is extremely fast because it does an almost direct data copy, fueled by the awesome FFmpeg which does all the grunt work.

Features:

  • Lossless cutting of most video and audio formats
  • Losslessly cut out parts of video / audio (for cutting away commercials etc.)
  • Losslessly rearrange the order of video / audio segments
  • Lossless merge / concatenation of arbitrary files (with identical codecs parameters, e.g. from the same camera)
  • Lossless stream editing: Combine arbitrary tracks from multiple files (ex. add music or subtitle track to a video file)
  • Losslessly extract all tracks from a file (extract video, audio, subtitle, attachments and other tracks from one file into separate files)
  • Batch view for fast multi-file workflow
  • Remux into any compatible output format
  • Take full-resolution snapshots from videos in JPEG / PNG format
  • Manual input of cutpoint times
  • Apply a per-file timecode offset (and auto load timecode from file)
  • Change rotation / orientation metadata in videos
  • View technical data about all streams
  • Timeline zoom and frame / keyframe jumping for accurate cutting around keyframes
  • Saves per project cut segments to project file
  • View FFmpeg last command log so you can modify and re-run recent commands on the command line
  • Undo/redo
  • Give labels to cut segments
  • View segment details, export / import cut segments as CSV
  • Import segments from: MP4 / MKV chapters, Text file, YouTube, CSV, CUE, XML (DaVinci, Final Cut Pro)
  • Video thumbnails and audio waveform
  • Edit file metadata and per-stream metadata
  • Edit per-stream disposition
  • Cut with chapter marks
  • Annotate segments with tags
  • View subtitles

Free Clip ~ Transparently Boost Volume


Free Clip is an intuitive multi algorithm soft clipper / wave shaper plugin, available as a Windows VST or Mac Audio Unit. The plugin allows you to choose between a range of wave shapes or ‘sigmoid functions’, from the most transparent but harshest hard clip, to the ‘softest’ but most saturated arctangent shape. You can then intuitively set the ceiling level using the slider that perfectly matches the level meter next to it. Oversampling is also available to remove high frequency aliasing; when oversampling is on this does introduce peaks slightly over the ceiling level however, so if you intend to use this plugin with oversampling as the final plugin on the master chain, ensure the ceiling level is set appropriately and/or the post-oversampling clip setting is set.

This plugin is a great way to conveniently transparently boost volume without clipping your DAW, whether it be an individual stem or sound effect, or an entire track that you made. It is recommended that the hardclip, quantic or cubic shape be used for mastering, as these introduce no or minimal saturation.

The plugin can be also used as a more traditional saturation / distortion plugin by setting a ‘softer’ wave shape, such as algebraic or arctangent – simply lower the ceiling level to provide more saturation to the signal – just remember to boost the output afterwards. Alternatively you can boost the input gain into the clipper for the same effect. In this case, increasing the oversampling value is helpful if you’re hearing high frequency aliasing! Be warned that high oversampling values such as 16 or 32 times can be very heavy on the CPU.

Pine Player ~ MacOS HQ Up Sampling Max 32bit 768kHz


Pine Player is an exclusive listening digital music player for music lovers who use the OSX operating system. It can play almost all existing digital audio forms such as MP3, FLAC, APE, AAC, M4A, WAV, AIFF, OGG, WMA, DSD, SACD ISO etc. and it also has a strong playing capability for listening to CUE files in the most convenient way.

1.     Maximum 32Bit 768kHz Up Sampling Function

Pine Player supports various kinds of PCM formats, so it can play sound sources from 16 to 32 bit; it can also reproduce clear and abundant sound quality by supporting a maximum of 768kHz.

Pine Player’s unique Over Sampling Filter is a technique that upconverts an ordinary MP3 file into a 32bit, maximum of 768kHz, and high sound quality sound source and sends it to the DAC for it to be played in best performance. Ordinary MP3 files’ sound quality can actually be heard more clearly and plentifully. Obviously, HD audio files such as MQS and DSD can be upconverted to a maximum of 768kHz as well.

2.     Convenient and Strong Playlist & Prevention of Text Cracking

Pine Player has a very convenient playlist because users can save and manage the music they wish to listen to, change the order of the music being played by simply dragging, and express any kind of language or text encoding perfectly because of its flawless decoding function. There is no Korean code cracking.

3.     Cross Fade and Gapless set-up

Cross Fade function, which is a technique that decreases the gap between songs when listening to files on the playlist or overlaps the songs for no gaps at all, can be set into seconds.

4.     Mass Storage of Audio Queue for Real Time Converting

Pine Player prevents damage of sound quality by having a high-powered Audio Queue for processing excessive amount of digital data. Therefore, it takes a considerable amount of memory compared to other music players.

5.     Automatic Isolation of Damaged Sound Sources

Pine Player has an automatic isolation function for damaged sound sources called Vault. If a damaged sound source is detected while playing the music, the music is stopped and taken to the Vault file for isolation. Through this convenient function, users can easily figure out which sound source is damaged and restore it.

Even with all these functions, Pine Player is a free app. Moreover, there are not any marketing or advertising material. Especially, no information including personal ones are sent to the outside or the Internet.
