Octiv and Cycling '74 announced Octirama, a surround dynamics processor for Digidesign ProTools Systems. Octirama is a full-featured, multi-band dynamics processor for 5.1 surround mastering for the TDM environment. Octirama incorporates sophisticated four- and five-band processing for each of five channels, plus bass management for control of peaks and loudness. The product’s design efficiencies allow a full-featured dynamic processor to run on a single 56000 chip. Features for each of the five surround channels include an input AGC, four or five-band dynamics processor, five in-band peak limiters, band mixing, and a final peak limiter.
