TASCAM Hi-Res Editor is a new, free
application that plays and edits up to 11MHz DSD or
384kHz WAV files. The software allows playback and
export of DSD files without converting to PCM audio.
This free app is available now as a free download
for Windows, with a Mac OS X version coming soon.
DSD Audio can be played through USB
devices that support it, such as the TEAC UD-501 and
HA-P90SD. In cases where a PCM interface is used, or
even the computer’s built-in audio, the software
automatically plays DSD back through the interface
at any sample rate. A section of the DSD recording
can be exported as a new file, either in DSD or WAV
format, to separate one long performance into
individual tracks. Two DSD files can also be
combined into a new file, for example when a file
over 2GB is divided. In addition to the above,
Hi-Res Editor can change the gain of WAV format
The TASCAM Hi-Res Editor is now
available for download free of charge.
