Chapter 11. Advanced Audio Optimization > Tools: You Get What You Pay For

Tools: You Get What You Pay For

All kinds of audio processing tools are available to assist you in your quest for sonic clarity in spite of low bit rate encoding. You can use software on your authoring computer as a discrete package, as a plug-in, or even as part of a larger audio software bundle. You can use a standalone piece of hardware. You can get stuff for free or for almost nothing, or you can pay enormous amounts of money. As the title of this section states, like automobile tires, you get what you pay for. A little research into what kind of gear is best to fold into your particular audio chain will be worth the effort.

Different tools perform in different ways. For example, most waveform editors (such as Peak and SoundForge) operate on existing digital files. However, most standalone hardware (Orban, Telos, and so on) requires a live input source. Other software tools (OtsJuke, Waves, and so on) allow you to optimize live streams from your computer.
