The following is a press release issued by Channel D.
Lambertville, NJ | September 30, 2015 - Channel D, developers of the innovative Pure Vinyl™ and Pure Music® computer audio software for Apple Macintosh computers and the creator of the Seta® Ultra Wide Bandwidth Phono Preamplifiers has released a major update to its Pure Music® software.
The new Pure Music 3 software includes nearly 50 new features and performance enhancements. Channel D will be demonstrating Pure Music 3 and Pure Vinyl 4 at the upcoming Rocky Mountain Audio Fest expo October 2 - October 4, 2015 (Marriott Atrium Room 490). The occasion marks Channel D’s 10th consecutive appearance at the Denver audiophile trade show - and 20th anniversary of being in business.
The new Pure Music 3 includes extensive optimizations, user interface and performance enhancements, including noticeably faster start-up and greatly improved smoothness and responsiveness, including improved integration of its Streamthrough feature, seamlessly and automatically transitioning between streamed audio and disk-based audio file playback.
Channel D’s Director of Engineering and creator of the product, Rob Robinson, said, “this is the culmination of a year of intensive and painstaking re-examination of the application code, hand in hand with careful ongoing testing, and it shows. Rather than making this a feature-laden update, we focused on improving performance and usability. This is, by far, the best Pure Music ever.”
Ever since Pure Music Version 1.0 was originally released in March 2010 by Channel D, Pure Music has brought new capabilities and setting standards for performance, product stability and customer support. For example, Pure Music was the world’s first audiophile player software to support DSD playback (June 2011) and also the first player allowing non-native audio file types such as FLAC (and later DSD) to be displayed and used via the iTunes user interface without altering the original files, a patented innovation (2010); and the first player to feature a streaming-audio mode, which first appeared in Pure Music in June 2011 along with DSD playback.
Pure Music 3 (still) retails for its original 2010 price of $129. Upgrades to Pure Music 3 are free for users who purchased a license to Pure Music in the last 19 months. Previous users may upgrade for the special price of $74.95.
