DVD-Ranger has released a new version of CinEx HD that includes SoundTouch 2, their database-less Cinavia audio watermark copy protection removal method. For the regular CinEx HD, that requires a database, the developers released new database files. CinEx HD with the databases provides better sound quality than the included SoundTouch 2 method.
Besides adding SoundTouch 2 support, this new version of CinEx HD also optimizes database handling for new movies and Cinavia types, and fixes a decoder for unknown packet types and codecs.
DVD-Ranger also released databases of new movies, this time the databases of Still Alice (English Track) and Fifty Shades of Grey – Theatrical Version (English Track) have been added.
Although the database supported CinEx HD offers better sound quality than SoundTouch 2, DVD-Ranger nevertheless decided to release the latter. The developer has been making an ongoing effort to prove that Slysoft and Elby have stolen DVD-Ranger technology (and/or purchased it from user Cienoway that in turn stole it from DVD-Ranger). This seems to be an another attempt to make a point, as the developer writes, “Today we have released the CinEx HD Utility 18.104.22.168. This update contain the new SoundTouch 2, the optimized successor of the Technology that was stolen from us.”
