Users of Merging Technologies’ Pyramix workstation may now work directly with Dolby E-encoded files, thanks to the release of updated VST plug-in versions of Minnetonka Audio’s SurCode for Dolby E encoder and decoder software.
Using the VST version of Minnetonka’s SurCode for Dolby E Encoder, Pyramix owners may now encode Dolby E audio files directly from a multichannel Pyramix session. Similarly, the SurCode for Dolby E Decoder VST plug-in may be used directly on the Pyramix project timeline to decode a two-channel Dolby E file into multichannel surround audio information.
Decoding can even be carried out in real time on a live input (analog, AES-EBU, TDIF, ADAT or MADI) if required. Full management of Dolby E metadata is available to Pyramix through the Minnetonka plug-ins, including manual metadata entry, and metadata may be imported from XML files or WAV files containing a DBMD chunk. These settings can be saved as plug-in template presets for recall and further use.
