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.
