What is DTS-HD Master Audio Suite?




DTS-HD Master Audio Suite is a successor to the DTS-HD Master Audio Suite and delivers the ability to create both legacy DTS-HD and next-generation immersive DTS:X audio bitstreams. DTS-HD Master Audio is a lossless audio codec that supports up to 7.1 channels with sample rates up to 96 kHz, or up to 5.1 channels with sample rates up to 192 kHz. It offers superior sound quality and compatibility with legacy DTS devices. DTS:X is an object-based audio codec that allows you to create immersive soundscapes with flexible speaker configurations and metadata. It enables you to deliver dynamic and personalized audio experiences for your audiences.


DTS-HD Master Audio Suite consists of three components: DTS Encoder, DTS StreamTools, and DTS StreamPlayer. Each component is designed to work together alongside other tools, allowing for the creation, testing, and delivery of surround sound audio through your existing workflow. Let's take a closer look at each component.


Features and benefits of DTS-HD Master Audio Suite




DTS Encoder




DTS Encoder is a stand-alone application that allows you to create full-file and segment-based encodes from a wide range of input formats. You can choose from various output formats, including DTS Digital Surround, DTS Express, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, DTS-HD Master Audio, and DTS:X. You can also customize the encoding parameters, such as bitrate, sample rate, channel layout, dialog normalization, downmix coefficients, metadata, and more. You can preview the encoded audio using the built-in player or export it as a WAV file for further processing.


DTS StreamTools




DTS StreamTools is a collection of tools that allow you to edit and verify DTS bitstreams without the need for an additional encode pass. You can use the Bitstream Editor to modify the metadata, channel layout, downmix coefficients, dialog normalization, dynamic range control, and more. You can also use the Bitstream Analyzer to inspect the structure and content of the bitstream. You can view detailed information about the codec type, bitrate, sample rate, channel layout, metadata, extensions, errors, warnings, and more. You can also use the Bitstream Merger to combine multiple bitstreams into a single file.


DTS StreamPlayer




DTS StreamPlayer is a professional software player that allows you to QC (quality control) DTS encoded audio against video. You can play back various file types, such as WAV, M2V+M2A (DVD), M2V+AC3 (DVD), M2V+LPCM (DVD), M2V+DDP (DVD), M2V+DTSHD (Blu-ray), M2V+TrueHD (Blu-ray), M2V+LPCM (Blu-ray), MP4 (H.264+AAC), MP4 (H.264+AC3), MP4 (H.264+DTSHD), MKV (H.264+AAC), MKV (H.264+AC3), MKV (H.264+DTSHD), MOV (H.264+AAC), MOV (H.264+AC3), MOV (H.264+DTSHD). You can also control the playback options, such as volume level, mute/unmute, loop mode, frame rate conversion mode, video aspect ratio mode. You can also monitor the downmix output using various presets or custom settings.


How to use DTS-HD Master Audio Suite




Creating DTS-HD and DTS:X audio bitstreams




To create a DTS-HD or a DTS:X audio bitstream using the DTS Encoder, you need to follow these steps:



  • Launch the DTS Encoder application.



  • Select File > New Project or click on the New Project icon.



  • Enter a project name and select a project folder.



  • Select an input format from the drop-down menu. You can choose from WAV files (mono or multichannel), AIFF files (mono or multichannel), BWF files (mono or multichannel), SDII files (mono or multichannel), AIFC files (mono or multichannel), CAF files (mono or multichannel), MXF files (mono or multichannel), Pro Tools Session files (.ptf or .ptx), Final Cut Pro XML files (.fcpxml), Avid Media Composer AAF files (.aaf), Adobe Premiere Pro XML files (.xml).



  • Select an output format from the drop-down menu. You can choose from DTSHD (.dtshd) for Blu-ray authoring or DVD authoring with third-party tools; WAV (.wav) for further processing or playback; W64 (.w64) for further processing or playback; RF64 (.rf64) for further processing or playback; CAF (.caf) for further processing or playback; MXF (.mxf) for Blu-ray authoring; MP4 (.mp4) for streaming or playback; MKV (.mkv) for streaming or playback; MOV (.mov) for streaming or playback.



  • Select an output codec from the drop-down menu. You can choose from DS ([0.064 - 1.509] Mbps) for legacy compatibility; DS-ES ([0.064 - 1.509] Mbps) for legacy compatibility with 6.1 channels; DS-96/24 ([0.064 - 1.509] Mbps) for legacy compatibility with 96 kHz sample rate; DS-ES-96/24 ([0.064 - 1.509] Mbps) for legacy compatibility with 6.1 channels and 96 kHz sample rate; HR ([0.064 - 6] Mbps) for high-resolution audio up to 7.1 channels; MA ([0 - 24] Mbps) for lossless audio up to 7.1 channels; X ([0 - 24] Mbps) for object-based audio up to 11 channels.



  • Select an output bitrate from the drop-down menu or enter a custom value in kbps.



  • Select an output sample rate from the drop-down menu or enter a custom value in Hz.



  • Select an output channel layout from the drop-down menu or enter a custom value using channel labels.



  • Click on Add Input Files button or drag and drop input files into the Input Files window.



  • Click on Encode button or select File > Encode Project.



  • Wait until the encoding process is completed.



  • Click on Open Output Folder button or select File > Open Output Folder to access the encoded files.



Editing and verifying DTS bitstreams




To edit and verify a DTS bitstream using the Bitstream Editor tool in the DTS StreamTools application, you need to follow these steps:



Launch the Bitstream Editor tool in the DTS:X does not require specific speaker layouts or overhead speakers to deliver its full potential. It can adapt to any speaker configuration and create a virtual height layer using psychoacoustic processing. Therefore, DTS:X can offer a more flexible and personalized audio experience for different environments and preferences.
