Channel D has released Pure Vinyl 2.2, a free update to its digital conversion suite to digitise vinyl records.

The free update includes improvements to the editor and recorder and updated documentation. It's a professional solution capable of the best results, hence its $229 price tag.

Pure Vinyl 2.2 is a suite of applications designed especially for high-resolution digital playback, editing, and archival of vinyl. It includes real-time playback monitoring, recording of dry or equalized (with 64-bit RIAA correction) audio at sample rates up to 192 kHz (with simultaneous save of CD format audio), adjustable sample rate conversion, and much more.

The editor's automatic gain riding and looping insures accurate track editing, even in the presence of vinyl background noise. A high quality resampling feature simultaneously saves CD format audio while monitoring and recording raw or equalized audio at sample rates up to 192 kHz.

Editing operations are nondestructive, and real-time, 64-bit vinyl correction (choose from dozens of customizable curves for antique recordings, or a highly optimized, extremely accurate standard RIAA curve) is included.

A 64-bit adjustable crossover for audio system bi-amping is included, as is Channel D's 64-bit ZEPHRR zero phase rumble reduction resampling filter.
