Melville, NY - - June 25, 2015 - - From rack-type recorders for professional studios to portable USB DAC playback devices, and powerful format conversion software, Korg has helped to pioneer DSD (Direct Stream Digital) technology. AudioGate, the powerful DSD and audio format conversion software that launched in 2006, has since become a blockbuster success; boosting the awareness of DSD. Now, KORG introduces a high-resolution music player fully loaded with the AudioGate player engine customized as an iPhone app with the release of iAudioGate.
iAudioGate incorporates a high-quality sound playback engine equivalent to AudioGate and plays a wide range of audio file types; including high-resolution audio, DSD, FLAC, AIF, WAV, and MP3. The app includes an easy-to-adjust high-definition graphic equalizer, plus a flexible remote control via a dedicated Apple Watch app. The up-sampling function enables users to reproduce music with higher quality, and also enables wireless smart forwarding of audio from Mac / Win (via AirDrop, iCloud Drive, Dropbox etc.)
