LASTAR ~ Batch File Splitting & Normalization


LASTAR is a batch (non-interactive) audio processor for loudness adjustment and file splitting of a batch of audio recordings, using an audio transparent maximizer.

At the opposite of usual available software, loudness normalization is done on signal power, which leads to a louder and more homogeneous result than the usual “peak” normalization, in particular on live recordings.

Its purpose is:

  • to split, equalize and normalize digitized analog tapes or vinyl
  • to split, equalize and normalize live recordings from microphones (ex ZOOM H2 recordings)
  • fast and homogeneous normalization of a group of files (compilation for instance)
  • loudness and dynamic reduction for listening in a noisy environment (car…)
  • and so on…

This software aims to be very fast and easy to use : the most efficient computing techniques have been implemented, and there are very few parameters to set (most of them are automatically adjusted by analyzing the file).

It embeds:

  • an automatic RMS normalizer,
  • an Automatic Gain Controller (compressor)
  • a 10 bands automatic equalizer
  • a 3 bands semi-parametric equalizer
  • a file splitter
  • a noise gate
  • preset management
  • a preview function.

PaulStretch ~ Paul’s Extreme Sound Stretch


This is a program for stretching audio. It is suitable only for extreme sound stretching of the audio (like 50x) and for applying special effects by “spectral smoothing” the sounds. It can transform any sound / music to a texture. The program is Open-Source and it’s released under the version 2 of the General Public License. You can download the source code for Linux or the Windows binaries.

Elpetozede ~ Split An Album Into Tracks


Elpetozede is a multi-platform, open source tool to split a wave file (.wav), which contains the complete audio recording of one side of a vinyl record or a cassette tape into single wav files, one for each track. It searches an Internet database (musicbrainz.org) for the album data, so, with a little luck, you won’t need to type all the track information by hand.
