I hope it’s a safe bet to assume that Electronic Musicians and producers are also audiophiles. With that in mind, I present the Audio Xciter app from Aphex. The app promises to provide your smartphone with “clarity and detail normally only heard in the studio“.
Aphex have been industry leaders in dynamic signal processing since 1975, in many applications from high-end studios, live sound, and audio broadcast environment. Fully compatible with AirPlay, and any external audio output, the proprietary DSP within Audio Xciter reintroduces the richness, clarity and spaciousness that’s typically lost in digital file compression.
Producer Alan Parsons says “The Audio Xciter app brings musical detail to life, no matter what style of music you’re listening to. You will hear increased clarity, along with space and detail, that will impress anyone,”
Many media professionals are unhappy with the quality of audio output in Android and iOS devices, and Audio Xciter’s combination of powerful software and user-friendly interface could solve that problem.
The app is available on a free trial – which limits the user to 15 minutes’ listening time per day – with upgrades at $4.99/£1.99 removing that limit, and $9.99/£5.49 adding “pro” features such as custom EQ sound sculpturing (replacing the limited number of presets available in cheaper versions).
All in all this is one nifty piece of smartphone software that deserves a listen!
