Version history / Release notes / Changelog:
Release Name: 0.0.8

Notes:
9 September 2007

Release 0.0.8 has mostly bug fixes since version 0.07. The versioning scheme for the Aften package has been changed to match the libaften shared library version number. A significant internal change is in the audio input module. Previous versions read WAVE files only, but for Aften 0.0.8, the audio input module was restructured to support raw PCM audio and to make it easier to provide future support for other audio formats.

I started to use this application today and was very impressed with the fuctionality and speed of this app. Its much faster then ffmpeggui which I used to convert wav to ac3, But Aften accepts an interleaved 6 channel audio wav file created with Adobe Audition and converted it to a 6 channel AC3. It sounded crisp and clear without any volume drop after the conversion. I am a happy customer! Oh I forget, this app is free. What more can I say?(LOL)

What is typical when using AftenGUI (and only this particular frontend, thus not EncWAVtoAC3 nor Aften on the command line), I get some sort of noise click right at the very end of the encoded ac3 file.

Peculiar, but keep up the good work!

Overall very good freeware. Much faster on my system than besweet. If using [url=http://thefrontend.sourceforge.net/EncWAVtoAC3/]EncWavtoAC3[/url]GUI be sure to also download [url=http://aften.sourceforge.net/]Aften[/url]and put it in the gui's directory.
