TC Electronic has teamed up with Adobe to integrate its LoudnessRadar in the next versions of Adobe® Premiere® Pro and Adobe Audition® on a license agreement.
In recent years, measuring audio loudness reliably has become mandatory for content creators. TC Electronic collaborates with Adobe to provide new LoudnessRadar.
The LoudnessRadar builds on TC Electronic’s groundbreaking LM6 Radar Loudness Meter and offers a wide range of loudness measuring tools that are key to content creators delivering for broadcast, film and internet. In short, the LoudnessRadar provides an easy-to-read overview of loudness over time. It displays Loudness History on the revolving radar, Momentary Loudness on the outer ring, True-Peak clips, Program Loudness and Loudness Range in a single view.
“Loudness compliance is a key requirement for content creators today and moving forward,” said Simon Williams, director of strategic relations at Adobe. “Our Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Audition users will be able to have access to an innovative and easy-to-use loudness monitoring solution.”
“By adding the LoudnessRadar to the Adobe Premiere Pro toolset, Adobe has made it easy for video editors to get audio standards compliance right. The audio Target is always in sight, and it’s easy for all to balance speech consistently against background sound and foreground music,” says Thomas Lund, HD Development Manager at TC Electronic. “We think audio professionals will be thrilled to have the convenience of an integrated loudness monitoring solution in Adobe Audition.”
Oscillicious has released version 1.3 of BeatCleaver, a major update of the beat slicing tool for Windows and Mac.
New features include a state of the art time stretching engine, support for the FLAC audio format, drag and drop sample export, and on-the-fly chopping.
BeatCleaver is a beat slicing tool for sampling beats, recordings, and songs. Its intuitive design and fluid user interface create a fast, frustration-free workflow. Slice templates and multiple export functions are just one click away, making music sampling with BeatCleaver easy and convenient.
With the integration of a new, state of the art time stretching engine, BeatCleaver can now warp and pitch shift samples with precision. The Rubber Band time stretching engine allows musicians to change the tempo and pitch of a sample independently of one another while preserving important musical characteristics such as transient shapes. Combined with the existing slicing capabilities of BeatCleaver, musicians have more tools than ever before for recontextualizing and sampling music.
BeatCleaver 1.3 also introduces a new drag export mode, FLAC support, and on-the-fly chopping. Musicians can now drag sampled slices directly out of BeatCleaver and into a folder, their desktop, or a DAW. Lossless FLAC audio files can now also be read and sliced, and by popular demand, slicing directly at the playback cursor is now possible during playback.
BeatCleaver for Windows and Mac is available to purchase for 24 EUR.
