This Wiki entry is dedicated to AudioMuxer, a tool written for the surround music audio enthusiast.
It has been my personal project for the last couple of months of trying to develop a tool that would be extremely easy to use for creating a music DVD, AVCHD, Blu-ray or MKV, with a special focus on multi-channel surround audio formats.

The following topics will be covered:

AudioMuxer functionality
  • AudioMuxer can generate a DVD, MPG or MKV files from MP3, Flac, (multi-channel) Wav, LPCM, DTSWav, DTS, DTS Master Audio, DTS Hi-Res, AC3, TrueHD, AAC or ALAC audio tracks.
    MKV files can be exported to AVCHD or Blu-ray, and an ISO file can be created from the DVD, AVCHD or Blu-ray structure.
    Audio tracks can be split with a CUE sheet and images can be selected that will be shown during playback. These images can be encoded in a NTSC/PAL or HD 720p/1080p video format.

  • A toolbox is available to convert MP3, Flac, (multi-channel) Wav, Wave64, WavPack, LPCM, DTSWav, DTS, DTS Master Audio, DTS Hi-Res, AC3, TrueHD, MLP audio files to AC3, DTS, DTSWav, DTS-HD, AAC, ALAC, LPCM/Mono-wav or Flac files. Up- and downsampling is available as well as down- and upmixing. For the latter SpecWeb (hosted as well on this forum) will be used.

  • There is also the possibility to read a playlist file from a non-encrypted Blu-ray or DVD-Video and to extract the (HD) audio from it.

  • An option to join Wav/Flac files is available.

  • An option to merge mono-channel wav/flac files to multi-channel wav or flac.

  • An option to convert AC3/DTS files to SPDIF Wav/Flac (useful for streaming audio from PC over SPDIF connection and for tagging AC3/DTS files).

  • And an option to change the volume of Wav/Flac files.

Download
AudioMuxer is freeware and will run on any Windows machine with .Net installed (Version 4 Client Profile). It has been successfully tested on Windows XP (as of SP2), Windows Vista, Windows 7 and above.
Until v1.0.0.0 is announced, the current versions of AudioMuxer are still beta versions, meaning that there could be still some bugs in there. Should you come across some, then please do not hesitate to report them here.

AudioMuxer can be downloaded from the following link. There is also a PDF User Guide available. It is highly recommended to read the User Guide before installing or running AudioMuxer.
Consult also the Changelog for the log of changes made to AudioMuxer.

Important Notes
  • As you will see in the credits section, AudioMuxer uses a lot of already existing software and the biggest challenge was to make them work together.
    In the event that a functionality was missing or not working in one of these underlying applications, a workaround has been coded to make it work.
    However some things could not be (easily) fixed and there are a couple of remarks sections in the User Guide dedicated to some of the shortcomings you will have to live with.
  • Eac3to has the possibility to use the commercially available Minnetonka SurCode DVD DTS Encoder and the ArcSoft TotalMedia Theatre DTS Decoder. However, there will be no support provided here on how to make it work with this commercial software.
