Voxengo r8brain PRO - User Reviews
I just got a new reference disc of a project from my mastering engineer that was SRC'd via r8brain (PRO) instead of the other software. The difference in detail and musicality is really, really amazing. Great work.
Sonically I am hearing a much more cohesive "stereo image" with a more defined midrange. The strings of the guitar sound more detailed and harmonically in tune with each other. This being in the precise phase mode. The "analogue" phase mode setting has a nice sound with a bit softer upper mid - top end but very good for some projects too. Worth the $129 download cost.

I love Voxego Products. Specially the Sample rate converter r8Brain pro. the conversion Quality is better then most of the products & DAW softwares available in the market. (Protools, Cubase. Logic Etc) I read about r8Brain pro in the UAD forums, & tried out the free version, which also sounds extremely good, now I own the Pro Version of r8Brain.
The batch conversion is a very helpful feature which helped me convert almost 200+ files 96khz to 44.1 in the matter of Hours.
A feature that is not listed her, is that you can run multiple version of this software. As I have a Dual Quad Core PC so I can safely run 8 separate instances of r8Brain pro which accelerate the batch process to a great deal.

Well this is a very strange point of view I have achivied after trying out
the Voxengo mastering tools.They sound superb in confront to others.I don't want to repeat myself but Soniformer and Elephant have given the results of a TC Electronic master (or even better).So I now look at the audio world in another way -There are some things in life that money can't buy,even your talent and devotion to the audio world- Your intelectual property should cost more and more but you kept this simple.Well I am astonished with Curve EQ and Lampthruster which gave us the ability to throw some tube racks out the window.And finaly r8brain Pro and Free that helped to over come the need to by those expensive and bother some converters that seems to me just take up space and confort.A big thank you from a young composer but very careful to sound quality and final products.You made it people transparency,clarity,punch,artistic design,warmth and consistency will have the VOXENGO stamp over them for a long time
For a long time I have been searching for the perfect Sample Rate Converter - and this is as close as I have yet come.
The quality from this is , to put it bluntly, incredible. Best of all is the fact it only uses whole numbers to do the conversions instead of the fractions used by others causing the inevitable rounding errors. Much better to use whole numbers only.
Also, you have 2 different modes - Linear Phase and Minimum Phase. Purists will tell you to use LinPhase as it avoids any form of Phase smearing whatsoever, but my preference is MinPhase as it sounds exactly like the Audio has been through a round trip of seriously high end Digital-Analogue-Digital converter chain.
