Version history / Release notes / Changelog:
[qaac] release 2.41 (refalac 1.41)
posted 4 hours ago by nu 774
Add --limiter. --limiter applies smart limiter that softly clips portions where peak exceeds (near) 0dBFS. Softly means that it applies non-linear filter to surrounding half cycles (nearest zero crossing point to zero crossing point) so that the result fits in under 0dBFS but still is smoothly connected to other parts, resulting in much smaller audible distortion than dumb hard clips.
For CVBR/ABR/CBR mode, bitrate value less than 8 is now treated as "bits per sample". Bitrate is computed as the following:
Bitrate = bits_per_sample * number_of_channels * sample_rate
For example, --cvbr 2 is now equivalent for --cvbr 192 (=2*2*48000) for 2ch, 48kHz case. This can be useful when you want to use CVBR/ABR/CBR and want constant quality setting for varying number of channels or sample rate.
Other minor changes.

Even though I hate bloatware, installing the Apple Application Support stuff is not much worse than having Java or .Net Framework 2.0 on your HDD.

This CLI front-end does work, and this post means a big Thank-You to the author.
