Welcome Friends,

This is my little corner of the Web where I keep my bits and pieces of know-how. Some of it I've written myself, some of it I've overheard at the market, and some of it has been told to me by little voices. I hope you find something useful on these pages and pass it on to others, correct me where you think I should be corrected, and comment where you feel you need to - all that we can make Linux even better and more popular.

Odio 490 installs

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 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.
