Audyllic’s solution uses Optimod technology in its back end to offer the podcaster the same  high-quality audio processing solution used for broadcasters worldwide.

Optimod is a complex and complementary system utilising multi-band phase linear crossover compressors, look ahead distortion cancelling limiters, phase rotators, a sophisticated speech/music detector (to maintain the recommended balance between the two), filtering and EQ that can correct and adjust the dynamic range and apply subtle amounts of spectral rebalancing of an audio signal. It has been honed over almost fifty years in the broadcast world. Many recording and mixing engineers aren’t familiar with their products and name or even in some cases don’t even know about their existence. Its application results in audio processing that performs the desired electrical modifications while presenting a subjective result that sounds natural and realistic, giving the listener the illusion that nothing has been changed.

Although basic limiting and compression tools are provided with most DAWs, they can very easily add unwanted artefacts to the audio, such as clicking, pumping, breathing and if adjusted to eliminate such side effects, may not act sufficiently on the programme material to counteract the aforementioned problems. For this reason, broadcast audio processing has developed into an extremely sophisticated (and costly) product, many broadcasters are quite secretive about their use to retain their perceived commercial advantage.

Audyllic improves audio quality ensuring every word is heard.  It works typically six times faster than real time, so you can produce high-quality audio in just minutes. Audio content providers can submit their audio files by ‘drag and drop’ to Audyllics’ portal, or can download the VST3 plug-in for use from within a DAW itself, or use the ‘Smart watch’ ‘hot folder’ desktop app that will automatically submit files for processing and place the resultant files into another folder ready for publication.
