Touches of R&B add an addictive melodic sparkle. And beats crafted with thunderous drums and glitchy percussion keep the crowd in motion. Sonic diamonds soaked in style – this is CRYSTAL DAGGERS.

Fidelia also provides seamless access to your existing iTunes music library.

With Fidelia, savvy music lovers have the ability to further personalize audio playback by installing third-party Audio Unit plug-ins. For example, Fidelia reaches beyond the narrow parameters of typical built-in equalization controls, allowing users to install higher-quality EQ and other Audio Units plug-ins to suit any taste or listening environment.

Audiofile's Fidelia Audio System optimizes the modern listening experience by realizing the full potential of quality audio hardware. No matter what type of sounds are in play, it incorporates Goodhertz's sample rate conversion, a new standard, to achieve optimum sonic fidelity. Dedicated audiophiles can also select real-time audio dithering via Goodhertz' Good Dither™ technology.

Fidelia features CanOpener™ Headphone Processing by Goodhertz, enabling you to create a more spacious, natural soundstage when listening with headphones. With user controls that are simple and effective, the algorithm can be fine tuned to your personal music library, listening preferences, and hardware.

CanOpener utilizes a unique, dynamic-range optimized equalization section to maintain the highest possible digital resolution at any setting. So you’ll never need to worry about digital clipping, distortion, or loss of headroom when using CanOpener. The CanOpener monitoring section offers several key monitoring facilities that are typically reserved for high-end monitor controllers or mastering consoles.

Audio Damage EOS v1.1.1 Windows
Eos consists of three high-quality custom-designed reverb algorithms, made with the modern production environment in mind. Two different plate simulators and our own Superhall algorithm give you a broad palette of reverb, and the easy-to-understand interface makes adjusting the algorithms to suit your track incredibly simple.

Want a traditional dark plate reverb? Eos can do that. How about a short, dense room sound for your drum buss? Not a problem. But where Eos really comes in to its own is when you drop Superhall on your piano or synthesizer tracks. The incredibly long modulated hall sounds of Eno-style ambience are where Eos thrives, something that is made of unobtanium with convolution 'verbs. Quite simply, an impulse response can not do what Eos does.

Features:

Algorithms: Three custom-designed algorithms: Plate 1 (mono in, stereo out), Plate 2 (true stereo), and Superhall (true stereo) built with modern production in mind. 
Controls: All standard reverb controls, including modulation rate and depth, attack, diffusion, and full control over the EQ and multipliers of the reverb tail. 
Infinite: An on-off control for "freeze" effects. 
User Interface: Unique visual controls designed for quick and easy programming. 
Optimized: Low CPU usage compared to other algorithmic reverb plug-ins, and far lower than the average convolution 'verb.
MIDI Learn: Full MIDI learn for hardware control of most parameters (VST only).
