Audio Conform Calculator iPhone app now free

In celebration of my new Australian Slang app “Aussie Lingo Audio Companion” I have decided to offer my other app Audio Conform Calculator as a free download from the iTunes app store.

Audio Conform Calculator is a simple iPhone App for sound engineers in which you can specify the source and destination frame rates of the video you are conforming and it will provide you with the percentage and ratio value that the corresponding audio needs to be time expanded or compressed to keep it in sync with the video.

When converting/conforming between video between different frame rates such as FILM, which is 24 frames per second, to PAL, which is 25 frames per second, audio needs to be conformed so that it maintains its sync with the video.

You can download it using the link below:
