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.

DSF_FillMute ~ Silence DSF Noise


DSF_FillMute is a program that replaces a series of trailing zeros created by the standard of DSF files with a silent signal (0x69,1001 0110b). It is effective for devices that generate noise by playing a series of trailing zeros. There is no change in the actual sound or ID3 tag because no processing is added except at the end.

Scope ~ Windows Soundcard Oscilloscope


The PC based Soundcard Oscilloscope receives its data from the Soundcard with 44.1kHz and 16 Bit resolution. The data source can be selected in the Windows mixer (Microphone, Line-In or Wave). The frequency range depends on the sound card, but 20-20000Hz should be possible with all modern cards. The low frequency end is limited by the AC coupling of the line-in signal. Be aware, that most microphone inputs are only mono.

The oscilloscope contains in addition a signal generator for 2 channels for sine, square, triangular, sawtooth wave forms and different noise spectra in the frequency range from 0 to 20kHz. The signal can be defined by a mathematical formula as well. The signals are available at the speaker output of the sound card. These can be fed back to the oscillocope in order to generate Lissajous figures in the x-y mode.

Features:

  • Trigger modes: off, automatic, normal and single shot
  • Triggerlevel can be set with the mouse
  • The signals of the two channels can be added, subtracted and multiplied
  • x-y mode
  • Frequency analysis (Fourier spectrum)
  • Waterfall diagram (frequency spectrum as function of time)
  • Frequency filter: low-, high-, band-pass and band-stop
  • Cursors to measure amplitude, time and frequency in the main window
  • Audio Recorder to save data to a wave file
  • For multi soundcard system, the used card can be selected in the settings tab
