Aphex has announced an update to their Audio Xciter app for the Android platform of smartphones and tablets.
"This update makes Audio Xciter the best way to listen to music on the go," says Aphex CEO David Wiener. "You can now listen to WAV, M4A, WMA and AAC files with sample rates from 8kHz all the way to 48kHz." Additionally, MP3 files are now supported at bit rates of 96 kbps to 320 kbps.
"This update was reworked from the ground up to zap bugs and dramatically improve performance on Android devices," continues Wiener. "Android users who really love music will instantly appreciate hearing all the detail and richness that their favorite artists work so hard to create – detail that's typically hidden in digital files. That's our main goal: to respect the music, the artist and the listener." The new release brings with it a more responsive user interface and greater stability, and it fixes issues with in-app upgrades.
Aphex says that Audio Xciter has been a big hit with iPhone and iPad owners, and this update brings Android users a whole new listening experience, as they "rediscover" the music they love, thanks to Aphex's patented audio processor technology – the same technology pros have been using for years in the studio and on stage. They tell us that the simplicity of the Audio Xciter app's familiar interface provides instant access to the user's library, playlists and even Bluetooth playback support, all with studio quality enhanced playback.
An update for the Audio Xciter app on the iOS platform (Apple iPhones, iPods and iPads) is currently in the works.
