It seems that no matter how much power you present to a digital audio workstation user, they will work as hard as they can to find the upper limits of that power. We are so happy to be able to now completely raise the bar once again on what our users are able to achieve… and we are very interested to see if anyone now is able to find the new limit, or if there even is one!C. Cellier, President, Merging Technologies
Audio content creation is all about creating immersive environments. Whether it is making a piece of music come alive or feeling the action while watching award winning television or cinema, being able to create something that the user believes is the most important thing. And with 3D audio this is now easier than ever before.
Pyramix 10 brings an entirely new toolkit which makes the idea of being trapped by a maximum speaker layout a thing of the past. No matter what the application, bringing a 3rd dimension to your audio content will have a profound effect on your next production. And, matched with a number of other new feature enhancements and updates, Pyramix 10 is the next benchmark in the evolution of audio workstations around the globe.
Pyramix is now the first DAW on the planet to be able to natively mix and master to ANY speaker output layout. Anything from mono all the way to NHK 22.2 and far beyond is now possible without any additional plugins or tools.
CREATE BUSSES OF ANY SIZE!
Configure your busses with literally any speaker layout you can think of. With presets covering every major standard as well as a custom configuration tool, you will always be ready to produce content in any format.
Some of the 3D workflows supported:
- Auro 3D (9.1, 11.1, 13.1)
- Dolby Atmos (Object & 9.1 Channel Bus routing)
- DTS Neo:X
- NHK 22.2
- Many many more…
CONTROL THEM ALL WITH THE NEW PANNER
Once your busses are configured you will then use the new Strip Panner to position your sounds anywhere in the 3D space. By sending X/Y/Z positional information to each buss, you are then able to simultaneously control the panning to any number of busses at once… even if they have different speaker layouts!
COMPREHENSIVE MONITORING WITH THE NEW MONITOR
Massively increased in size to handle not only all of the new channels that our busses are outputting, the new Monitor Section is also able to create down-mixes to every other format. Along with the ever-present speaker controls for phase, mute, solo etc makes the Monitor section the perfect 3D mixing companion.
VIDEO IN TIMELINE
For anyone using video with Pyramix, this will come as some incredible news. For Pyramix 10, the Merging Technologies video engine has been integrated inside the Pyramix application. We won’t say that we were the first to come up with the idea, but we know that some of the feature set coming with it will still impress!
IMPORT SINGLE CLIPS OR COMPOSITIONS
Import AAF, OMF, CMX EDL and FCP(7) XML* directly to the timeline in their multi-layer state. Or simply drag and drop from the media manager, which now features a video preview window as well.
TIMECODE GEARBOXING (REAL TIME TELECINE)
Add video of a frame rate different to that of the Pyramix timeline and be confident you will always be in sync. The Merging Video Engine will add or remove frames when needed during playback to maintain a nominal playback speed regardless of what the frame rate mismatch is.
MULTIPLE VIDEO TRACKS *
Run as many tracks of video as required on the timeline and sum them into a video output based on a top layer concept.
* requires Native Pro or above
