TC Electronic intros aNorm – Adaptive Loudness Normalization

Related: , Posted in news on Sep 12, 2014 - comment 0 comments

TC Electronic has introduced aNorm, a new, original and highly innovative approach to loudness adjustment that learns the incoming program on the fly and adapts seamlessly to hit user-defined Targets for Program Loudness and Loudness Range (LRA). It delivers uncompromised audio that has not been dynamically processed unless requested.

In most cases, setting the Targets is all that aNorm needs to achieve a great-sounding result that stays within the boundaries of international broadcast standards and legislation. In other words, it has never been easier to integrate, setup and use intelligent loudness processing that doesn’t destroy delicate balances set in production.

TC Electronic also debuts a brand new Loudness Processing Meter as part of aNorm: The Butterfly Meter™.

TC Electronic aNorm

This innovative interface displays content pre and post loudness normalization using a graph that instantly provides an overview of how and why incoming audio is adjusted. Both the Program Loudness and Loudness Range parameters are reflected visually – not just as numeric values. The sheer look of the meter is just as astonishing as it is intuitive and informative.

“We are proud to offer second-generation loudness normalization and new loudness processing metering to all audio-conscious broadcasters,” says TC Electronic’s Thomas Valter, VP of Business Management, Broadcast & Production. “aNorm adapts seamlessly to your content to achieve a transparent result where delicate production balances aren’t washed out. aNorm is also easy to use – It even leads to new transition processing never before possible.”

To Normalize or Not to Normalize
In numerous published research papers, TC Electronic has shown how transparent normalization is the audio-friendly, low-cost concept that prevents blurring of foreground and background elements. It works across genres, works across platforms and works across codecs – now and in the future. The goal for any audio-conscious broadcaster is to loudness-normalize programs before transmission. Pre-normalization of all content, however, may not be achievable from the first day of a station’s transition to loudness normalization. aNorm therefore allows the user to indicate whether or not a program has already been normalized.

aNorm represents a revolution in streaming processing that keeps dynamic changes at a minimum by normalizing intelligently first. Only if normalization by itself is not enough to hit the Targets for Program Loudness and Loudness Range, aNorm applies dynamic loudness processing. Without proper attention to normalization, the spirit and the revolutionary improvements from EBU R128, TR-B32, ATSC A/85 etc. cannot be expected to reliably make it through to the listener leading to the risk of extensive transmission or consumer processing is simply too big. This is exactly what aNorm seeks to prevent, providing a way for broadcasters to ensure their audio is preserved as pure as humanly possible – from the earliest production stage to the speakers of the viewers and listeners.

The new aNorm algorithm and loudness processing meter (Butterfly Meter) are part of the new LoudnessWizard II license for TC Electronic’s DB6 Broadcast Audio Processor.

Dynaudio Professional releases AIR Control software

Dynaudio Professional has released a new AIR Control application for PC, Mac and Windows-based tablets, allowing users to carry out advanced calibration and alignment of their AIR monitoring system.

Dynaudio Professional AIR Control

The software provides access to advanced tools and features inside AIR monitors and subwoofers including timing and SPL calibration and parametric EQs for each monitor. Air Control allows users to define and store custom setups and presets with selective parameter locking, and a special measurement mode provides EQ line signal out from selected monitors.

“AIR Control will be available as a free download, and we are very excited to offer our current and future AIR users the advantages of this intuitive software that easily and intuitively unlocks all the power of their AIR monitor systems.” says Fred Speckeen, Global Business Manager for Dynaudio Professional. “AIR systems are an industry standard, and have been so for over a decade. It is chosen by ear by the world-leading film, music and broadcast production studios. AIR Control is designed to meet their accelerating project and workflow demands where minutely accurate adjustments and configurations must be easily made, saved and quickly recalled.”

AIR Control replaces Dynaudio Professional’s original ‘TC PC-IP’ installer software that was developed for professional installers. The new AIR Control application design is easier to use and an even more efficient way to fine-tune a complete, digital AIR monitoring system. The new AIR Control runs on Mac, PC and Windows-based tablets.

The AIR Control software is available for download now.

TC Electronic intros System 6000 Integrator plugin

Related: , , Posted in news on Aug 21, 2014 - comment 0 comments

TC Electronic has launched System 6000 Integrator, a new audio & video software integration plug-in.

TC Electronic System 6000 Integrator

Today, virtually all music, film and post production is rooted in DAWs such as Pro Tools, Audition, Nuendo and Logic Pro or NLEs such as Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro and Media Composer. As DAW components change in three year cycles, many professionals use System 6000 to ensure their most precious audio effects. Before, this was a challenge when managing projects; and typically involved MIDI or custom solutions to synchronize data.

Now TC Electronic launches a complete integration solution for its System 6000. The System 6000 Integrator plug-in allows users to save and reload the complete settings of their System 6000 as part of virtually any DAW or NLE project just by using the ethernet connection which is already there.

Through standard automation it is also possible to automate preset changes during playback, which means that users are able to get more out of the four processing engines of System 6000 than ever before. For instance, one engine may apply subtle 8 channel reverb in one scene and extraordinary DXP dynamics processing or UnWrap HD in the next.

“We are very excited that users are now able to integrate their System 6000 with their DAWs and NLEs,” says TC Electronic’s Thomas Valter, VP of Business Management, Broadcast & Production. “What may seem like a minor and simple addition to the System 6000 platform is in fact a game-changing move that adds a whole new dimension to System 6000.”

Based on the Ethernet protocol, multiple System 6000s may be detected and used on the same network, allowing users to take advantage of powerful communication lines between their DAW/NLE and one or more System 6000 mainframes/TC Icon remote hardware or software.

The System 6000 Integrator supports the AAX, RTAS, VST and Audio Unit formats, covering all major DAWs and NLEs. To use the plug-in, users will need an iLok account, but they can choose whether they want to store the plug-in license on an iLok USB key or directly on their computer.

System 6000 Integrator is available for the introductory price of $299 USD until September 1st, 2014 (regular $499 USD). TC Electronic is also offering a free 14-day trial for all System 6000 users.

TC Electronic intros LM1n, LM2n & LM6n loudness meter plug-ins

TC Electronic LM6n

TC Electronic has announced LM1n, LM2n and LM6n, three new loudness meter plug-ins for audio and video editing systems.

The new LM2n and LM6n meters offer a wealth of new features plus the acclaimed and easy to use Radar View. The LM1n plug-in is a brand new addition to a growing range and provides the all-important basics in loudness metering while only creating a small footprint on the screen. The new LM2n and LM6n native plug-ins replace the previous LM2 and LM6 plug-ins.

All of these new loudness meters support the major plug-in formats, including AAX (Pro Tools 10 and 11), VST (Nuendo, Cubase, Audition, Premiere, etc.) and Audio Units (Final Cut Pro, Logic Pro, etc.) and even offers faster than real time off-line measuring in Pro Tools.

As would be expected from TC Electronic, being heavily involved in research studies on loudness as well as the definition of international loudness standards, LM1n, LM2n and LM6n comply with all major broadcast standards, including BS.1770, A/85, R128, TR-B32 and OP-59, and will remain compliant via updates whenever new revisions of these standards are released.

The plug-ins will be available late April, 2014.

LM1n will cost $79 USD, LM2n is $149 USD, and LM6n is $449 USD. Introductory prices will be available for LM1n ($49 USD) and LM2n ($99 USD) until May 31st, 2014. Various upgrades from earlier TC Electronic loudness meter plug-ins will also be available.
