FDRHD is Full Dynamic Range High Definition. The typical modern method of delivery for mastered audio involves using heavy limiting to restrict the dynamic range, to increase perceived loudness. However, this results in unwanted artifacts caused by the process, commonly the blurring of transients and increased likelihood of distortion.
FDRHD files are not limited for loudness and, therefore, these unwanted artifacts are avoided. This results in better clarity audio files. The tracks are still mastered, but not ‘hyper‐limited’. Further, FDRHD files are delivered in high definition. In most modern studios it is common for tracks to be recorded and mixed at well above CD quality audio. This means that in order to meet the standard of CD audio or MP3 tracks must be reduced in quality, resulting in a loss in definition.
FDRHD files are not reduced in quality and are delivered at the same resolution as the final mastering process, avoiding this unwanted quality loss. This means that you, the customer, will receive the audio files at their highest quality and free from unnecessary limiting. You hear the tracks at the same quality as the mastering engineer, the highest quality with no compromise. For more information regarding the FDRHD products and format, please email email@example.com
