The accessibility of digital music has brought about one significantly disappointing side effect: a substantial decrease in the quality of the songs we download, share, and carry with us. More music in smaller products — iPhones and Androids, for example — means smaller files; smaller files, in turn, mean lost detail due to compression. For users, that means a lower quality experience.
Leave it, then, to Aphex, a brand surpassing three decades of innovation, to offer a highly accessible solution to a widespread problem: Audio Xciter. The app, available for iPhone and Android, takes a patented approach to dynamically restoring harmonics in the high and low ranges lost when the audio files are compressed, “lossless” compression included.
Unlike equalizers, which statically alter audio response and enhance only the reduced audio data, Audio Xciter restores lost harmonics and adjusts dynamically, in real-time, to the sounds being played through users’ mobile devices — all without lag. Compared to adding the across-the-board “boost”, thereby increasing specific frequencies, distortion, and unwanted noise, Audio Xciter is able to bring back lost audio data, while also providing you the ability to personalize particular settings according to your taste.
The result is audio files — music, podcasts, and books — with an instantly recognizable improvement in quality: richer, clearer and more spacious. The individual components lost in compression, essentially pushed together to save space, are enhanced to their full, harmonious quality. The impact is immediate and significant, particularly for users whose listening experience has been largely digital, with the intricate layers of your music unraveled for an overall more-detailed listening experience.
Fortunately, bringing pro equipment quality to portable devices was done by Aphex, a brand Fueled is thrilled to have as a client, with an eye toward the consumer. No need to go through long-winded syncing or searching — Audio Xciter allows immediate access to all files in your library, with no added copying of files. While listening, you can adjust to studio level detail, with six settings that include: AE Tune, Harmonics, AE Mix, Drive, BB Tune, and BB Mix, each uniquely designed to address different styles of mix and needs of different users.
As such, it’s a two step process: download and hit play — and do so with no risk. Download the free demo version for 15-minutes of enhanced daily playback, and then upgrade for $4.99 or $9.99, with further customization available at each level. To download now, visit Audio Xciter online.
