AAC-ELD codec for dbPoweramp or Foobar2000 converter?

Hello guys,

I need a proper codec file for AAC-ELD format.
https://www.iis.fraunhofer.de/en/ff/amm/prod/kommunikation/komm/aaceld.html

I could find fdkaac.exe codec file for other AAC family files.
However there's nothing exist for AAC-ELD although AAC-ELD is widely supported in Android OS.
Where can I find a codec for this format?

Please help,

Thanks.

Thanks for your reply.

So where can I find Fdk encoder file which has AAC-ELD option?
How can I install it?
and which converter should I use to get that AAC-ELD option?
I have installed fdkaac.exe file from github and it doesn't have aac-eld option. I has AAC-LC, AAC-HE v1 and v2.

Please help...

Thanks,

As far as I know the encoders you have should work. What happens when you set the profile to ELD instead of HE or LC? Do you get an error?

It doesn't display any option for AAC ELD ..
Please check attached image in this post. That's what I see on my Foobar2000.
I think this is a problem of my fdkaac.exe file?

If you know where to find a proper fdk encoder, please let me know.

Thanks

I don't mean foobar2000, which probably does not support ELD (since it would not generally be used for music), but the actual fdkaac.exe binary.  If you run that with the profile set to ELD as described in the documentation, do you get an error?  I think it should just work.

Well, I don't understand what's binary of fdkaac and how to run that with profile described in documentation.
Can I do that on Foobar2000?
If so, would you provide me any instruction?
or what kind of converter should I use for that? I have several WAV files and am trying to convert them all into AAC ELD format.

Thanks, I'm kinda new to this.

Cool,

Thanks everyone. Yes, this indeed added AAC ELD to my foobar2000 and it's working fine.
However I realized 64kbps has really bad quality audio in AAC ELD.
If I want to increase it to CBR 80kbps, should I change parameter to:

--ignorelength -S --profile 39 --bitrate 80 --bitrate-mode 0 --gapless-mode 2 -o %d -

and set bitrate to 80?

I tried this parameter:
--ignorelength -S --profile 39 --bitrate 80 --bitrate-mode 0 --gapless-mode 2 -o %d -

and it properly converted 16bit WAV files into AAC ELD files which play fine on Android OS.

Thanks everyone!

Isn't the bitrate in bits per second (bps)?
-b 64000
It doesn't seem to make a difference, i just tried encoding one file with -b 64000 and another with -b 64... both files sound bad and exactly the same to me, also, MediaInfo reports ~64 kbps on both files.

tbh, i don't understand why the OP wants to use aac-eld... he-aac sounds way better at ~64kbps and is more compatible.
