Neyrinck, a surround-sound software developer, has released a major update to its SoundCode for Dolby E and SoundCode for broadcast. The new software version 1.2 adds Dolby metadata emulation monitoring and MXF OP1a workflow features for broadcast mixing and delivery.
Version 1.2 also adds a broadcast emulator plug-in to its suite of features. The real-time emulator features Dolby Digital metadata emulation for use while mixing and monitoring 5.1 and LtRt audio for television broadcast. The effects of metadata on dynamic range control (DRC), downmixing and dialnorm can all be listened to in real time and can be switched in and out separately.
All metadata can be edited in real time and can be received externally from Dolby hardware via RS-485. Version 1.2 also adds MXF OP1a audio import and export directly into and out of the Pro Tools timeline.
The version 1.2 update will be free for existing owners of SoundCode for Broadcast and Dolby E as an online download.
