TempoPerfect ~ Cross-platform Metronome


TempoPerfect is a free software metronome. Unlike mechanical metronomes, our software metronome provides a clear and precise beat that won’t wind down, making it an essential tool for any musician.

  • Simple and intuitive interface
  • Highly accurate beat simulation
  • Accent the first beat in a measure
  • Preset tempos include Largo, Allegro, Presto and more
  • Visual beat indicator bar provides a helpful visual cue
  • Create accurate beat patterns for simple or complex rhythms
  • Subdivide beats to hear difficult patterns, such as triplets
  • BPM Tempo Guide chart for each speed of music (e.g., Allegro=120-168)
  • Subdivide beats into accented beats and regular beats to emphasize different patterns
  • Use on your computer or as a metronome app on your mobile device
  • TempoPerfect also includes a tempo guide within the program which is a helpful resource for remembering the BPM for particular speed markings (e.g., Allegro).

BPM Counter ~ Beats Per Minute mp3 Tagger


BPM Counter is a fast and accurate beats per minute detector for MP3 music. It may be helpful for DJs who need to get information about the entire music collection quickly and for any kind of remixing/sampling stuff. Do not trust online BPM databases, because each musical composition can have several versions with a different tempo. Don’t waste your time for manual tapping with a metronome, just navigate to any folder with music and BPM finder will show all compatible audio files (MP3 and WAV) and start BPM detection automatically.

Have you already encountered the fact that your analyzer returns half or double value? This is a fairly common mistake, called an octave error. Most often this happens with simplified algorithms that cut off the frequency spectrum of the audio signal. Seeing that, we use full-range audio decoders from Audio Converter Plus to ensure a balance between performance and precision.

Foobar2000 & MathAudio Room EQ


The frequency response of your room is very different in every point of the room. “Good” equalization in one point can worsen the sound in the neighboring point. Single-point equalization is not reliable and cannot be used in a professional room correction system. On the other hand, multipoint equalization is not simple; both the volume and the phase of the testing signal are very different in different points of the room. Simple averaging is not applicable. MathAudio Room EQ applies a state-of-the-art multipoint correction algorithm which ensures the best possible improvement in every point of the listening area.

  • Corrects deficiencies of room acoustics (multipoint compensation).
  • Corrects acoustic imperfections of speakers.
  • Avoids the pre-echo (pre-ringing) problem of conventional convolver-based room correction systems. The absence of pre-echo ensures the neutrality of the sound.
  • Works in rooms, halls and outdoor venues of any size.
  • Works with zero latency. Perfect for live performances and studio monitoring.
  • Doesn’t delay the audio track when playing video.
  • Corrects both amplitude and phase components of frequency response.
  • Quells resonance peaks of frequency response while leaving the deep notches.
  • Avoids the overcompensation which happens in conventional linearizing room correction systems.
  • Manually adjustable level of compensation allows one to reach the maximum transparency of the sound.
  • Supports full range of sample rates from 44,056 kHz up to 384 kHz. All sample rates are supported without resampling to avoid any possible loss in quality.
  • Includes a custom target curve feature.
  • Applies 64-bit signal path throughout.
  • Works with USB measurement microphones (e.g. MiniDSP UMIK-1 or Dayton Audio UMM-6) or standard measurement microphones (e.g. NADY CM100 or Dayton Audio EMM-6).
    Supports microphone calibration files.
  • Applies a patented method of frequency response correction.
  • Freeware Foobar2000 Component

FreeG ~ Fader Plug-in


The Sonalksis FreeG is everything you need in a master fader. A simple, but absolutely indispensable plug-in, the FreeG extends the functionality of a typical audio host by providing a large-format style fader, along with ultra accurate metering. FreeG helps to maximise workflow with extended, customizable metering, and multiple control features and settings.

When working with digital audio, a lack of fine metering and extended signal flow control in the host is a common issue. FreeG helps to improve workflow in the host by providing these features in the insert chain. By delivering enhanced control of amplitude, phase and pan (stereo version) in the insert chain as well as fine metering, with user configurable industry standard ballistic options, the freeG is the perfect master control.

Features:

  • Long-throw fader
  • Ultra accurate metering
  • Multiple metering ballistic types
  • Peak and RMS readouts
  • Pre/Post metering options
  • Selectable Pan-Law
  • ‘Fine’ mode for sensitive calibration of the master fader
  • Mono-compatible for use in tracking situations
  • VST and Audio Unit (32 and 64 bit)
