A lossy audio compression technology similar to MP3. It is Sony’s proprietary ATRAC3 codec commonly used by Sony music-playing devices. It uses SDMI.
How to Play/Encode ATRAC3 files
- Liquid Audio Plugin for Winamp
- Real Player media player software
- Cole2k.net – encoding and decoding codecs
- Variety of related programs
Converting from/to ATRAC3 files
- HiMD Renderer – Convert your Atrac3 files (*.OMG/*.OMA) to WAV or MP3 files. Step by step guide here. DRM restrictions still apply, and you still need SonicStage.
- Sony’s MP3 converter – Basic version of Sony’s SonicStage software. Converts MP3 files to ATRAC3.
- ATRAC3 also does not play with any hardware other than Sony’s own so those who transfer their files to this format can only play it in Sony equipment.
- Allows up to 20 hours (at lowest quality setting) of music in a single CD (minidiscs will have about half that).
