Dicas/zPlane Compaact!

Compaact! Compaact! was an AAC encoder developed by the DSP engineer Alexander Lerch, released in late 2003.

It met good acceptance as soon as it was released. Also, it was packed with interesting features. There are three different quality levels (from faster encoding to high quality), support for LC and Main profiles, ability to enable or disable tools like TNS or PNS, multichannel encoding support, several preprocessing routines, and a very interesting preview feature, that allows users to preview in real time how their tracks will sound after encoded.

For some reason, it was discontinued in early 2005. The zPlane web site can be reached here.
