    Odio Latest version

    What is Odio?

    Odio is a quality-centered audio compression tool for FLAC and Nero AAC. It features a job list and a powerful tag editor capable of fetching all metadata from allmusic.com[1] pages. The interface is simple, with as few options as possible.

    The application reads the following input:

    FLAC needs no introduction, it is the absolute lossless codec, period. If you have no problems with disk space, you should be using this one. For all high-definition audio (i.e. > 44100 Hz) you should definitely be compressing into FLAC to preserve every bit of the audio experience. Odio creates your FLAC files with the best possible compression.

    Nero AAC is currently the best lossy compression format around. Although proprietary, it gives higher quality than its open counterpart, the FAAC. Compared to MP3, it is outright superior, plus it handles multichannel audio and is generally supported by most hardware players. If you have a jumbo audio collection and disk space is an issue, this is the way to go. Odio will create your AAC at the highest possible quality as MPEG-4 audio files (*.m4a).

    What is Odio not?

    Odio is not "another" audio converter. It does not take any format and convert it to something else - there are various other excellent general purpose gstreamer and ffmpeg based audio conversion tools for these jobs.

    Odio was created with a single goal in mind: to provide audiophiles with a dedicated tool with a very simple interface.

    I am grateful for your program. Question, what do the arrows and squares symbolize on the left side of the song file in the GUI?
