KORG’s AudioGate is a program designed to allow users to record master audio files in Sony’s and Phillips’s proprietary DSD (Direct Stream Digital) format. DSD is an audio format that permits ultra-high audio quality with reduced distortion in the resulting sound. However, not all users have media playback or management applications that can handle DSD. AudioGate is not only capable of recording and importing DSD files but can also convert them into lower-resolution audio formats while preserving as much of the quality of the DSD file as possible. It does this with advanced sample rate technologies and dither processing that considers both regular human audio perception and actively works to reduce distortions in the resulting sound file.
The program is also a media player as well as a DVD/audio CD burner. It has a non-destructive DSD file editor and a user-friendly graphical interface. There are 2 versions of it: one for Windows and another for Mac. There are some differences in the file formats each version can import/export. For instance, the Windows version into the WMA formats (regular, professional and lossless) but not the AAC and Apple Lossless format. The Mac version, on the other hand, cannot export in WMA but can save files in the proprietary Apple formats.
Our users primarily use AudioGate to open these file types:
File.org aims to be the go-to resource for file type- and related software information. We spend countless hours researching various file formats and software that can open, convert, create or otherwise work with those files.
If you have additional information about which types of files AudioGate can process, please do get in touch - we would love hearing from you.
