PDF, a format for content-rich documents, is widely used to save and circulate information. However, there are so many times we need to convert the PDF file to other file formats in different occasions on Mac, which makes PDF Converter a great assistant for productivity boost. PDF Converter for Mac is a powerful 6-in-1 PDF Converter, supporting Mac users to convert PDF to Word + EPUB + Text + Image + HTML + SWF to make full use of the original PDF document and get files in different formats from PDF simply and quickly. Convert PDF to Word/EPUB/Text/Image/HTML/SWF Convert Scanned PDFs with OCR. Use iTunes to Convert WAV to MP3 on Mac. To convert WAV to MP3 the most direct and simple.
Aims of music conversion:
- format adjusting (DSF, DFF, FLAC, WAV, etc.) to hardware / software abilities,
- resolution adjusting [sample rate, bit depth, 1-bit sigma delta modulation (a.k.a. DSD) or PCM] to hardware / software abilities,
- using of audio system resolution, that cause lesser distortions.
DSF is audio file format (.dsf extension) with high resolution DSD audio stream. DFF file is alternative DSD sound format container. A DSD converter between the files (containers) may be implemented as lossless re-packer of binary identical musical content. Or the conversion tool may have appropriate mode to repacking without losses.
Simplified DSF file structure:
- DSD sound data
- id3 metadata block.
Format specification link see below.

The DSD data divided by blocks. Last of block may be filled partitially.
Stereo 2.0 and multichannel 5.1 formats are supported. Also other channel number may be supported.
Music players able playback 1-bit stuff straight on DSD DAC (native 1-bit DAC) or convert in real-time ('on fly') to PCM format so that PCM DAC feeding (multibit DAC).
Conversion 1-bit sigma delta modulation to PCM is lossy. Physically the conversion is filtering high frequency noise. The filtering band may have different width. It define music signal band width. Other side, it cause more high frequency noise energy, that can cause audible intermodulation distortions at some playback systems.
DSD resampling, gain altering is lossy anyway.
All losses noted in this article part is not significant for professional conversion software.
Real-Time vs. Non-Real-Time Conversion
PCM to DSD, DSD to PCMconversion audio quality depend on signal-processing precision. But it is lossy action anyway.
As rule, offline (non-realtime) converter DSF to PCM or PCM to DSF implemented on computer have fewer time computing restrictions, comparing with real-time processing. Offline processing may allow higher calculation precision, that consume additional time. Qualitative offline processing may be performed at old computers even.
If processing is performed once, it save electric energy that computer consume in intensive calculations.
DSD vs. WAV, FLAC, AIFF
Conversion quality of the conversion software close theoretical limits.
Approximate Audio Format Quality by Results These Tests
(the best at first place)
1. WAV PCM 32-bit float, DSD 256 and above
2. DSD 128
3. WAV PCM 24-bit
4. DSD 64
5. WAV PCM 16-bit
Read about quality comparison of PCM and DSF formats. In the article compared WAV vs. DSF. This comparing matched ISO (1-bit hi-res audio), DFF, AIFF, FLAC and any lossless formats.
PCM 32-bit, DSD 256 and above in the tests have measurement tool limitation. Therefore, all these formats were placed at first position.
DSD sample rate is matter of noise level inside useful band. Reducing the noise level can cause instability of sigma-delta modulator. However higher sample rate allow to reduce noise and get wider musical signal band.

Sound quality settings
If input and output sample rates are different, resampling signal processing is used. Resampling base on filtering with settings described below.
At Settings > General tab> select one of Filter mode's options:
- 'Optimized resampling filter' cut frequencies upper 20 kHz (eliminating intermodulation distortions by ultrasound);
- 'Non-Optimized resampling filter' remove all upper 20...24 kHz (depend on input/output sample rates) - eliminating intermodulation distortions by ultrasound, wider signal band;
- 'Non-Optimized wide resampling filter' suppress all upper 20...100 kHz (depend on input/output sample rates).
At some equipment 'Non-Optimized...' modes can cause audible noise (see video).
Generally, 'Optimized...' mode is recommended. But you can prefer other modes.
Use minimum phase filter switch checked/unchecked minimum/linear phase filtering when 'Optimized resampling filter' is selected. Other modes use linear filtering only.
Dithering application have sense in 16 bit PCM target format only.
If output bit depth 24 bit and above (including 1-bit, float point PCM formats), dithering auto turn off.

CDXTRACT for Windows, Mac OS9 and Mac OSX
Our commitment is to provide the most reliable and powerful sampler utility for the audio professionnals.
CDXtract is based on a very sophisticated and robust architecture that is fully object-oriented. Most of the high level functions required to work on sampler files are directly implemented in the Kernel and accessible to any format that needs to use it. The advantage of this architecture is that the same code is not duplicated again and again, moreover it increases the overal reliability. One example is the support of alternate loops that are available in some hardware samplers but not in any software samplers so far. Each sample read by CDXtract is handled by a special object called a 'Virtual Sample', this Virtual Sample is responsible for providing audio data to any other components. If this sample has an alternate loop then the Virtual sample object will emulate its looping mode and will provide audio data accordingly which means that the player and all the converters don't have to deal with this alternate loop problem, for them it's just a simple forward loop. This guarantee that an alternate loop will always be perfectly converted whatever the destination format is.
Here again CDXtract benefits from a excellent design based on a driver technology. Each source format and each destination format are implemented as drivers and all the conversions are performed through an internal format. So everytime we add a new destination format then all the existing source formats can be converted to this new destination format, and everytime we add a new source format then it can be converted to all the existing destination formats. That's why the number of possible conversions in CDXtract is growing at an exponential rate, while the competition is still adding one conversion at a time.
CDXtract has always been a precursor and again this version 4 includes some unique features that bring the sampler conversion to a new level of creativity. CDXtract 4 allows you to select several programs and combine them in different ways. For example you can stack them on top of each other in order to create new multi-layered programs. Possible applications are infinite, you can for example create a new violin instrument by stacking a legato violin, a staccato violin, a tremolo violin and finally a pizzicato.
CDXtract 4 includes a stack editor that allows you to adjust the velocity scale and the global velocity response of your new multi-layered instruments.
Given the number of possible conversions within CDXtract, the number of options available is quite large. Moreover it's not easy for the user to understand if a given option affects or not one specific conversion. That's why CDXtract 4 has an extremely intuitive representation of all the options applicable to each conversion. All the options are represented in a conversion graph that speaks for itself. In the following example, we are converting an Akai disc to the EXS24 format. The Akai programs with the same program number are automatically merged with the 'AutoMerge' option, then the tuning reference is adjusted from 442 Hz to 440 Hz and the output level is set to -6dB. The Akai stereo samples are converted to stereo interleaved samples and they are saved in the same folder using the Aiff format.
Yes it's here, finally the first universal sampler converter on the Macintosh platform. The PC and the Mac versions offer the same functions with a very similar user interface. The Mac version has been optimized to run with less than 20 meg of RAM which leaves you plenty of space to run other music softwares at the same time. CDXtract works on MacOS 8.6 and higher and is also available on Mac OSX.
Advanced player and Magic player:
CDXtract has a built in advanced player that has been specially designed to work with sampler audio files. For example some formats such as Akai and Soundfont store their stereo samples as 2 separate mono samples that can have their own loop settings. Other formats such as Roland support more looping modes like reverse and alternate. The worst case scenario is when you have a stereo sample with desynchronized alternate loops and a start point inside or at the end of the loop (thus the loop begins to play backward then forward). CDXtract is the only software that can play all these samples exactly as if they were played by the hardware sampler they were designed for. The player can be configured to load and play a limited length of audio data, thus allowing you to get a very fast preview even on huge audio files.
The magic player is a new tool that you can use for fast and automatic bulk preview. Imagine that you just bought a new Akai CD full of drum loops. Open this CD with CDXtract, select the all the partitions and click on the Magic player icon. CDXtract will then parse all partitions and all volumes and automatically play all samples one after another without any user interaction, exactly as if it were a regular audio CD. And combined with the time limit option, you can for example listen to the 3 first seconds of all your audio files.
