Creating a professional sounding audio CD is not just about putting a blank disc in your CD burner and starting Nero. To create professional results, you need to refine the audio so that your audio levels are precise, especially if you're creating a musical CD. Sony CD Architect provides all the tools you need to produce professional CDs from beginning to end. Be warned though, this is not a program for the faint hearted and you'll need some experience in audio engineering or mixing to use it.
With Sony CD Architect, you can perform full PQ code editing, apply effects, create customized crossfades, and generate disc-at-once premasters suitable for professional replication. There are a multitude of special effects that you can apply including EQ, compression, reverb, and noise gating. You can apply effects to individual tracks, sections of a track, or the master bus itself.
You can edit soundwaves in minute detail as it allows you to zoom right-in on waves and perform precise, real-time edits, fades and crossfades. You can invert audio phases, normalize tracks, and perform audio scrubbing - even apply real-time pitch changes and time stretching. The amount of features and options in Sony CD Architect is in fact mind boggling and for anyone interested in producing a professional music album, an essential tool.
