From the man who brought you SSRC.DLL, and the author of the most popular and advanced tool for audio transcoding... wink.gif

DSPguru just released BeSweet v1.4b1, which is able to do AC3 multichannel encoding using his ac3enc.dll (Based on ffmpeg project)

You can get it at http://dspguru.notrace.dk/

BTW, it would be very cool if somebody could test it with "official" AC3 encoders quality, like SonicFoundry SoftEncode, Digigram AC3 Encoder or Surcode Dolby Digital.

I could provide samples encoded by these encoders if needed.

Having downloaded the latest besweet and ac3 machine 0.3, i have encoded a few sample ac3 files, namely music files from stereo wave files. I'm assuming I'm doing something wrong, because the files that I encode come up with white noise when playing back in winamp. I use in_ac3.dll in winamp, and for a few seconds the song is fine, then get a few bits of white noise, and then goes back to normal playback. When i play this file thru my spdif connection to my dd5.1 receiver, the DD flag comes on, but the audio is totally silent.

I haven't toched any of the settings other than the location of my wav, ac3 and besweet files.

I dowloaded the package(Besweet 1.3, aacmachine 0.3 ) and and the winamp plugin (in_aac.dll), Installed in Media Jukebox 8 and is working perfect!. Sounds incredible. At the same or better level of MPC. aac ROCKS!

ack! I'm lazy for wanting to make my life easier now and not revert back to CLI cave ages?

I'm without surround sound for several weeks so has anyone done any listening tests yet? I'd love to hear some feedback before I begin my own. I hear the speed is incredibly fast but more interested in how it sounds compared to SoftEncode at around 256kbps.
