      Hey Jake, Were you at the Expo? Sorry I missed you. Went to the Gigavox site; does this only work with WAV s or also with MP3 s? Would you need to convert

        Hey Jake,

        Were you at the Expo? Sorry I missed you.

        Went to the Gigavox site; does this only work with
        WAV's or also with MP3's? Would you need to convert
        WAV's to MP3's to make this work?

        Thanks and best,

          I tried dragging an mp3 into The Levelator, and it didn't work. I'm using a
          Mac, so I'm using the OS X version of the program. It might be different on
          the Windows version, but I doubt it. Seems like it'd be easier for the
          software to process an uncompressed (either WAV or AIFF) file as opposed to
          an mp3.

                          The core of The Levelator is written in C++ for performance reasons.
                          We've used Java only for the UI. It allowed us to get it done quickly
                          so that we could use the same codebase for Windows, OS X (Intel) and
                          OS X (PowerPC). We didn't get it done until 12:30am on Saturday, and
                          if we hadn't used Java, I doubt we could have delivered a multi-
                          platform version while still at the PME. As it is, we were a day
                          late. Yes, there are other cross-platform solutions, but this is the
                          best we could do with the skills and tools we had.

                          In a future version, I want to recode the UI using native tools,
                          making it much easier to install, particularly on Windows.

                            That said, on the Mac, it was a fairly easy install. Not, perhaps, for
                            newbies, but it did install cleanly and works. I ran my Expo LIVE show
                            through it and it did improve the sound quality markedly.
