AppNee has two facts for music aficionados who like to collect high-quality music: 1) The sound quality of an audio file is determined as it is recorded/produced, and can’t really be changed later on; 2) Some of the HD music files we download from the Internet have their bitrate artificially increased. For example, upscaling 128 kbps to 320 kbps. So how do you know the true quality of an audio file? At this point, we can ask Fakin’ The Funk for help.

Fakin’ The Funk is a reliable small program that is designed to help user detect the actual quality of audio files with just one click. It works by automatically analyzing the bitrate, lower frequency-peak, and some other parameters of audio files, comes with a fresh, modern and appealing UI, and is very easy to use.

After selecting your music folder, it will analyze the correctness of the bitrate and frequency of all supported audio files inside immediately. If it detects a wrong bitrate or a lower frequency peak, it will show you the real bitrate. Finally, it’s up to you if you want to rename, move or simply delete these files.

You can get audio files from anywhere nowadays. If you want to know the true quality of them, i.e. to make sure that they are really as good as alleged, instead of being artificially raised from low kbps to high kbps, then you can use Fakin’ The Funk to make a reliable check.
