Major Productivity Milestone
Merging Technologies has embraced Audio over IP in 2011, quickly recognizing the huge advantages of a network connection for audio transport in and out of a DAW, along with the significant cabling simplification and the benefit of increased length.
In 2017, another milestone is achieved by linking Pyramix 11 to ANEMAN; our new Audio Network Manager tool. Bringing all your RAVENNA/AES67 devices at your fingertips and within one interface.
Pyramix 11 heralds further developments of its toolkit for 3D immersive audio with a new FX Rendering feature for multitrack and multi-effects processing, along with the implementation of plugins series, opening the world of HOA panner and binauralizer directly within the Pyramix 11 mixer.
Pyramix 11 proves beyond doubt that it has all the functionalities needed to be the one and only DAW to handle such diverse audio applications.
AUDIO NETWORKING MILESTONES
ANEMAN: Audio NEtwork MANager
ANEMAN is a powerful tool to discover, connect and monitor your audio network. It informs you when you can and cannot make connections, and even gives you the PTP status of each device. With the Sample Rate zone, you can now have multiple sets of devices on the network that will follow their own master’s Sample Rate.
Merging devices are not the only products compatible with ANEMAN. We already have many partners; Check www.merging.com/aneman for more information
ANEMAN integrates in a single comprehensive application all the features and functionalities previously in EasyConnect and MTDiscovery… and much more.
AES67 support for Windows/ASIO
Our famous driver for ASIO has been enhanced and is now fully compatible with AES67 devices (48 frames).
RAVENNA/AES67 support for Linux/ALSA
Same quality driver as for MAC (Core Audio) and PC (ASIO). Merging is now launching a Linux driver.
MULTICHANNEL IMMERSIVE AUDIO MILESTONES
Multichannel timeline based advanced effects processing
Construct your own signal flow processing throughout your VST (VST3) and your VS3 plugins, from mono to any multichannel process. Apply it directly to the clip in the timeline while keeping the edits/fades (according to choice).
It is a TAB; it can be opened and processed while doing other operations. Save the configuration and the settings in a unique file for a total recall in this or another Pyramix 11 project.
B<>com plugin integration
Complete integration of the B<>com plugin range (VST based) for a truly immersive experience.
HOA Panner, Binauralizer are available plugins (among others). Those are not part of the generic installer of Pyramix 11, please refer to this documentation for more information.
3D panning remote control
Full Object Based Audio workflow
(only Pyramix 11.1 and above)
Pyramix 10 introduced a new bus structure (7.1, 9.1, 13.1, 22.2, etc.) including a 3D panner and the appropriate monitoring section, and now Pyramix 11.1 is the first DAW with a complete workflow to generate master files with Object-Based Audio (OBA) metadata according to the Audio Definition Model (ADM) or MPEG-H 3D audio.
This now completes the former OBA workflow, primarily designed for Dolby Atmos mixing for Film or Immersive Live performance, into a comprehensive workflow for TV production with the addition of multi-language support and ADM format export.
More information in this press release.
