Plugin Alliance Announces Availability of ADPTR AUDIO Streamliner Streaming Codec Evaluation Plugin

October 15 2020, 00:25
Plugin Alliance, the software developer and webstore supporting all major plugin formats and uniting some of the best-known international audio companies under one virtual roof, announced availability of ADPTR AUDIO Streamliner — a new plugin that eliminates guesswork and allows producers and mastering engineers to find out how their masters will sound on all the major streaming services. The application features a vast codec selection that includes Apple Music, Bandcamp, Spotify, Tidal or even Twitch, and YouTube Music.

ADPTR AUDIO Streamliner’s simple and comprehensive codec auditioning feature allows anyone to easily preview audio through the very same algorithms used by Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, YouTube, and many more streaming platforms besides. But the plugin itself does much more than simply let its users quickly hear how audio will sound through streaming and download codecs. It also serves as an intuitive and powerful metering suite, combining state-of-the-art meters for loudness, dynamic range, and true peak levels — complete with Target levels.

Additional features well worth highlighting here include loading, comparing, and level-matching reference tracks using ADPTR AUDIO Streamliner’s integrated A B Reference switching system, as well as instantly exporting tracks at all the bitrates used by each major platform so users — and clients — can preview them on a variety of listening systems.

Comprehensive codec selection is instantly available, including those used by Apple Music, Bandcamp, Beatport Pro, Deezer, Facebook Video, Gaana, Instagram, Mixcloud, Napster, Pandora, Primephonic, Soundcloud, Spotify, Tidal, Twitch, and YouTube Music. The plugin allows users to hear how mixes will sound to end listeners and discover how much loudness normalization will affect a master when it is featured in playlists alongside other tracks with ADPTR AUDIO Streamliner. In this way, the plugin eliminates guesswork and allows anyone to finally find out how their masters will sound on all the major streaming services.

"I love being able to see at a glance what my dynamic range and loudness levels are in a clear, easy-to-read format, and the ability to audition lossy audio formats and reference all the major streaming platforms is a must nowadays. For all aspiring mastering engineers, the target levels and dynamic ranges — with well-known presets — are gonna be a game changer,” says GRAMMY Award-winning mastering engineer Glenn Schick (Future, J. Cole, Missy Elliot), 2020.

ADPTR AUDIO Streamliner is available for purchase (as an AAX AudioSuite-, AAX Native-, AU-, VST2-, and VST3-supporting effect plugin for macOS 10.9 through 10.15 and Windows 7 through 10) at an introductory price of $169.99 USD until November 1, 2020 — rising thereafter to an MSRP of $199.00 USD.
