cDSP Resampler

Fluctus cDSP Resampler

Menu to set the "cDSP 64Bit Resampler" quality/speed trade-off.

The Fast option is better suited for creating files that are not meant to be final versions but need to be created fast.

The Good option is suited for most uses and delivers a final version quality.

If present, the Mastering option will deliver superior results and should be used on sensitive material.



Sample Rate

Fluctus Sample Rate

Sets the "cDSP 64Bit Resampler" and file Sample Rate.

Depending on the version of Fluctus being used, this option goes from 32000Hz to 96000Hz or 192000Hz.

The TPDF (or Triangular Probability Density Function Dither) option is suited for most uses.

If present, the cDSP Shaped Dither option is better suited for musical material.

Fluctus Bounce to...

Menu to set the "cDSP 64Bit Resampler" mixer.

When the project is 5.1 the "Stereo" Option bounces down the Left, Right and Center channels to Stereo, ignoring the LFE and Surround channels.

The "Mono" Option mixes the Left and Right channels down to a single channel, ignoring the Center, LFE and Surround channels.

Note: 5.1 is only available on Fluctus Expert.
