Software Compatibility

You'll need an iLok copy protection device in order to use this software. If you already have one, you're good to go. If you don't, you can buy one here. An iLok is a small USB gadget (about the size of a thumb drive) that plugs into your computer. It "unlocks" the software, allowing you to use it.

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

Audition Files in Real Time!

NOTE: This is a special offer for qualifying students to purchase the Oxford Fraunhofer Pro-Codec at a special reduced price. Proof of eligibility is required to qualify for this offer. This product requires iLok2 authorization. For more information, call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer.

When you're optimizing MP3 mixes for use online, you need the right tools for the job. Sonnox's Fraunhofer Pro-Codec plug-in makes it incredibly easy to audition encoded or decoded material - in real time. Plus, you can audition up to five codecs at the same time. The Fraunhofer Pro-Codec's intuitive display shows the input signal, the output difference signal, and a visual representation of how much codec-induced noise can be heard. You'll also appreciate the A-B auditioning and blind listening modes, which give you even more flexible auditioning options. The Fraunhofer Pro-Codec plug-in even lets you batch encode to multiple formats at the same time!

Convenient iTunes integration on your Mac

If you're a Mac user like many of us here at Sweetwater, you'll be happy to know that Sonnox's Fraunhofer Pro-Codec plug-in is a powerful tool for mixing directly for the "Mastered for iTunes" program. It lets you conveniently use the Apple iTunes Plus codec for auditioning, monitoring iTunes encoding chain clipping behavior and correcting levels if necessary. (Note that the iTunes Plus codec is included in the Mac version only.)

Sonnox Fraunhofer Pro-Codec Plug-in Features:
  • Allows auditioning of up to 5 codecs in real time
  • MP3, MP3 Surround, MP3 HD, HD-AAC, AAC-LC, and HE-AAC codecs supported
  • Intuitive display
  • Bit-stream integrity meters for detecting potential decode overloads
  • Instant A-B auditioning
  • Blind listening mode
  • Compatible with all major DAWS
  • Mac/PC, RTAS, VST or AU
