Sonalksis Ultimate-D - Electronic Delivery – No Longer Available

A new paradigm in re-quantization
MFR# 108

Product Description

The Sonalksis Ultimate-D is a new paradigm in re-quantization. It combines advanced digital resolution enhancement processing, with an innovative and totally unique interface that uses intuitive parameters. The Ultimate-D perceptibly increases the quality of the audio after re-quantization. It achieves this by applying a combination of proprietary dither and/or noise shaping algorithms which through our research we have determined are psycho-acoustically optimal.

However the main difference between Ultimate-D and other re-quantization processors is that the arcane dither types and esoteric noise shape curves are concealed behind an intuitive, simple interface that automatically determines the amount of dither, the type of dither, and the shaping of the noise depending on definable characteristics of the audio signal. In short, the Ultimate-D interface is the first dither plug-in designed for creative audio professionals, and not mathematicians!

The Sonalksis Ultimate-D Features:

Re-quantization is a necessary process that usually takes place at the end of an audio processing chain, when very high resolution recordings are tailored for the final lower resolution listening medium. Of all 'standard' digital audio processes, re-quantization is arguably the least understood, and is certainly the least intuitive process to apply, given the usual array of 'noise shape' and 'dither type' options.

Since the Ultimate-D is designed with musicians and not mathematicians in mind, it is simple to apply appropriate re-quantization to almost any audio mix, track or segment. The decisions about noise shapes, dither amounts and types are all made for you, based on characteristics of the audio, such as whether it is acoustic or electronic, and whether the audio is dynamic or compressed.

Ultimate-D provides unparalleled performance, regardless of whether you are re-quantifying for a 16-bit rock CD or a 24-bit classical DVD.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
