Software update: AC3Filter 1.60b

On Sunday, after a long period of silence, a new release of the AC3filter was released. This Directshow filter makes it possible to decode and edit sound from movie files in real time. The software is mainly intended to be able to play files with surround sound, such as ac3 and dts tracks. Also, the codec is able to reproduce the sound from the digital output (s/pdif) to process. The main change in this release is that a 64bit version is now available. Also new is that from this version there are three different downloads available are. Below is the full changelog for this version:

Release notes:

  • Major change in this version is x64 support.
  • Now filter is distributed in several editions: Full, Lite and Win9x. More about the difference.
  • Much work with equalizer. Now you can work with each channel individually and with all channels at once. You can see the equalizer’s real frequency response, and build your own equalizers with custom frequency bands up to one hertz precise.
  • Spectrum is now synchronized with audio playback. Also, you can see the spectrum of individual channels.
  • Translated to Greek (thanks to thanks to Peter Perdik and Dimitrios Topouzidis) and Slovenian (thanks to DarkHand).
