Editing high-resolution DSD/PCM files
Editing high-resolution DSD (DSF/DSDIFF) and PCM (WAV) files with up to 2 channels (mono/stereo) is possible. DSD formats of 2.8–11.2 MHz and PCM formats of 44.1–384 kHz and 16/24/32-bit are supported. As for the DSD files, import and editing of the file are possible as DSD formats. In addition to converting between DSD and PCM formats and different sampling frequencies, basic editing functions such as trimming and joining files. These editing functions are all available on the Home Screen, and the simple, easy-to-understand operation screen enables intuitive use.
Windows/Mac OS supported
The following operations are possible on a Windows/Mac computer. The Windows standard driver (WASAPI) and ASIO 2.1 are supported audio drivers on Windows computer.
Note: Check computer system requirements in the specifications
Note: In Mac version 11.2MHz DSD/DSF is not played back natively, but converted during playback to another supported sampling frequency.
Download for free
TEAC Hi-Res Editor is a free application. It can be downloaded from the following TEAC website.
Conversion of audio file formats and sampling frequencies
PCM files can be converted to DSD formats and DSD files can be converted to PCM formats. Sampling frequencies can also be converted as desired.
*Quantization bit depth can also be converted for PCM files.
*Press the EXPORT button on the SCREEN to access the file conversion function screen.
Combine function allows two files to be joined
Two audio files can be combined into one file if they have the same file format and sampling frequency/quantization bit rate.
*Press the COMBINE button on the Home Screen to open the file combination function screen.
With waveform display possible, intervals set with in/out points can be changed and saved
The waveform for the loaded audio file is shown on screen, and the time and level axes can be zoomed. Markers at the top of the screen can be moved directly while viewing the waveform to set trim in/out (start/end) points for the file to be saved. When saving, the desired file format and sampling frequency, for example, can be used. In addition, short fades can be added to in/out points when saving intervals.
Editing with just a computer possible
TEAC Hi-Res Editor allows editing with just a computer and makes it unnecessary to connect a playback device to monitor audio files. In addition, by using USB to connect a playback device that supports DSD such as the TEAC UD-503 USB DAC or HA-P90SD portable headphone amp/player, playback of DSD files from the computer is possible.
Audio from vinyl records can be split into files by track.
PCM audio files recorded for archiving using a TEAC TN-350/350 turntable, which has USB digital output, can be split into tracks with TEAC Hi-Res Editor. Furthermore, by converting audio to DSD, tracks from records can be played back on the TEAC USB DAC UD-503, the HA-P90SD portable headphone amp/player, which support DSD, and the HA-P5 portable amplifier with DAC.
DSD audio files can be converted for playback on iOS devices, such as iPhone (iPod/iPhone)
TEAC Hi-Res Editor can be used to convert DSD audio files to PCM, enabling them to be loaded into iTunes. By converting files loaded in iTunes to Apple Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC), music saved as DSD can be played even on an iPhone or iPod (iOS devices, such us iPhone). With the TEAC Hi-Res Editor, DSD files can be converted and put into iTunes - making it possible to listen to them on your iOS devices (iPhone/iPod) or iPhone as well as a DSD player.
Examples of using TEAC Hi-Res Editor with, for example, a DR series or TEAC high-resolution playback device
Upconversion of PCM files and conversion to DSD for playback
By converting a PCM file recorded using a TASCAM DR series linear PCM recorder to a higher sampling frequency or DSD format, playback at higher resolution than that used for recording is possible with a device that supports it. In addition, by converting audio to DSD, files can be played back on the TEAC UD-503 USB DAC, the HA-P90SD portable headphone amp/player, which support DSD, and the HA-P5 portable amplifier with DAC.
Examples of using TEAC Hi-Res Editor with a DA-3000 stereo master recorder
Splitting a DSD audio file that was recorded without track divisions into individual tracks
When making long recordings with a DA-3000, it is possible to use the track incrementing function to split the file at the desired points to create separate files for each track. If a recording was made without splitting it into tracks, however, TEAC Hi-Res Editor can split a file into multiple tracks without using a DAW.
Combining long recordings that were split into multiple files due to size limits
In 5.6MHz DSD recording mode, a file can reach the large size of 1 GB in 11 minutes. This can result in the maximum size for a single file being exceeded when recording orchestras and other long performances. When recording with a DA-3000, a new file will automatically be created if the file size exceeds 2 GB. Using TEAC Hi-Res Editor, files split this way can be combined into a single file.
Converting an audio file recorded as DSD to PCM
After recording at high-resolution 5.6MHz DSD using a DA-3000, this application can downconvert the resolution or convert to a PCM file format to suit other playback requirements. This allows recording of high-resolution master files that can be used to archive audio without needing to worry about how the file will be used after recording.
