Maggot Software releases Spanner for Pro Tools

Maggot Software has announced Spanner, a powerful surround channel manager, panner, remapper and downmix plugin for AVID Pro Tools.

Maggot Software Spanner

It is the result of years of personal frustration with the Pro Tools panner and bussing setup and solves many of the common complaints about the surround workflow in Pro Tools.

If you ever work in surround you’ll appreciate this plugin I’m sure, but if mixing-in-the-box is your thing you’re going to see this as a major step forward.

Spanner features

  • True surround panner.
  • Up and down-sizes multiple track formats.
  • Infinitely flexible folddown with Audiosuite support.
  • Pre-fade lfe send.
  • Panner window follows track selection.
  • Post-pan meters in mix and edit windows.
  • Double-precision, low CPU overhead.

Spanner for Mac (AAX) is available to purchase for the introductory price of $199 USD through April, 2012 (regular $249 USD).

IOSONO introduces Anymix surround mixing plug-in (50% off intro price)

IOSONO has introduced Anymix, an innovative surround mixing plug-in for Windows and Mac.

IOSONO Anymix (Essential)

Anymix is the perfect solution for an easy, yet precise creation of surround mixes. It offers a wealth of features for individual panning and high-quality upmixing. The plug-in comes with a broad selection of up- and downmix preferences tailored to be used in post-production, broadcast, music and game sound design. Anymix doesn’t only redistribute audio material to a certain output configuration, but gives you full control over important parameters, turning the mono or stereo mix into an ultra-realistic surround scenario.

Anymix features

  • Ultra-realistic surround sound from mono up to 8.1 and backwards – With Anymix you can create up to 8.1 surround mixes from any format – and backwards! This can be done using the upmix feature or the built-in panning mode.
  • Extensive channel movements and setup of single sources – Each input channel can easily be edited. You can adopt the position, delay, volume, LFE-gain and the spreading/size of the channel to your personal preferences. This enables you to create a setup tailored to your individual production.
  • Distant-dependant adjustment of loudness and timbre* – To create immersive mixes even faster, Anymix Pro allows you to automatically change gain, delay and a shelf EQ according to the distance of the audio channel to the listener. This can be used to create a sense of distance automatically without automating these parameters in your DAW.
  • Flexible and easy upmix – The built-in upmix feature can be used to convert between different input and output formats. Using Anymix Essential, you can choose one of the industry-standard formats from the dropdown menu. Activate the upmix mode and choose one of the presets to achieve the desired spatial impression. And, you’re done!
  • Full control over ambience and direct signal share* – The Pro version allows you to separately control the share of direct and ambient sounds. All aspects of the upmix, including stage width, rotation, divergence, gain and more can be adjusted to your preferences and the final upmix can be moved freely within the listening area.

* only available in Anymix Pro

Anymix for Windows and Mac (VST/RTAS) is available to purchase for the introductory price of 150 EUR (Pro) / 80 EUR (Essential) until March 31, 2012. Prices include 19% VAT.
