ADPTR AUDIO Streamliner makes streaming mastering easy

Plugin Alliance announces availability of ADPTR AUDIO Streamliner, making masters ready for streaming 


“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!” 

– GRAMMY® Award-winning mastering engineer Glenn Schick (Future, J. Cole, Missy Elliot), 2020 


SANTA CRUZ, CA, USA: Plugin Alliance, supporting all major plugin formats and uniting some of the best-known international audio companies under one virtual roof, is proud to announce availability of ADPTR AUDIO Streamliner — a perfectly positioned plugin that eliminates guesswork and allows anyone to finally find out how their masters will sound on all the major streaming services — as of October 7…

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. Indeed, it also serves as an intuitive and powerful metering suite, combining state-of-the-art meters for LOUDNESSDYNAMIC 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 — 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, a perfectly positioned plugin that eliminates guesswork and allows anyone to finally find out how their masters will sound on all the major streaming services. 

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 attractive introductory price of $169.99 USD until November 1, 2020 — rising thereafter to an MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) of $199.00 USD — from here: https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/products/adptr_streamliner.html

Bose Soundlink Mini Review for Mobile Producers

This is a great little portable Speaker to use with your iPad or any bluetooth capable streaming audio device. The Aux input makes it great for connecting up gear as well. The frequency response is pretty usable considering the size of the unit and the battery lasts good and long.
