Entis Lab MIO

Daru MIO (Music Interleaved and Orthogonal transformated format) is an obscure codec developed in Japan for usage in game music by Entis Lab.

The codec seems to be CBR (at least in the only encoder I managed to get working). Most encoders I found have the interface written in Japanese, including the ones created by the codec developer, so I am hosting a third party encoder here called Daru that supports MIO.

The codec also features a lossless mode.

I am also hosting a Winamp input plugin for MIO files. The file info interface is in japanese, but you can easily detect information about frequency, bit depth and channel count.

The official home page of Entis Lab can be found here. Visitor comments on codec audio quality would be very welcome.

Lots of thanks to Stefan Grünwald for introducing me to this codec
