discWelder Bronze for OS X
Minnetonka Audio Software is now offering its first DVD-Audio authoring tool for the Mac OS X platform: allows users of Mac OS X 10.3 to easily author their own high-resolution DVD-A's. discWelder can import all Linear PCM formats supported in the DVD-Audio specification, including surround (up to 6 channels of 24-bit 48kHz audio) and high resolutions stereo (two channels of 24-bit 192kHz audio). The company says that urround and stereo may be used on the same disc in WAV or AIFF file format; DVD-Audio discs burned by discWelder will play on any DVD-Audio player that supports DVD±R/W. The software is available for both PC and Mac OS X for $100.
