Burnley, UK (March 4, 2005)–AMS Neve plc has announced the release of Encore Plus automation. The latest generation of the acclaimed Encore software, Encore Plus, is available for the entire range of AMS Neve consoles including 88RS, DFC Gemini, Aquarius, MMC and Libra Post. Along with a number of automation enhancements, Encore Plus delivers several major new features including Reconform, Automation in Stop, Mix Audition and Star Command remote control of digital audio workstations.
According to the company, Automation Reconform is a highly significant development. It is becoming increasingly common for pictures to be re-cut right up to and beyond the last possible moment. In the past, this became frustrating as mixes had to be rerun from change points. Now, change lists can be taken into Encore Plus and the mix automation cut and spliced automatically to reflect picture changes. This significantly reduces the work load on the mixer as pictures are re-cut as well as allowing greater freedom to the director who can now continue to make creative changes right up to the dub without disrupting the mixing process.
Automation can now be written while the timeline is stationary, automation in stop, with user defined “automation to” settings. Dynamic automation can also be written at less than play speeds enabling exact settings and movements to be made with pinpoint accuracy. Mix Audition, based on the enhanced system speed, enables near instant play of numerous versions of a mix.
The Star Command control system enables automated control of connected Pro Tools systems, including plug-ins, from the console surface via HUITM. The console can also control Nuendo. Star Command also implements the Oasis standard, which gives tight and comprehensive control over Pyramix workstations. Multiple DAWs can be controlled from a single desk. No new hardware is required.
