Las Vegas, NV (September 2, 2004)–TransAudio Group demonstrated the capabilities of SoundField’s Surround Zone Plug-In software at the Surround 2004 International Conference & Showcase on August 31 and September 1, 2004 at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles.
Surround Zone is the plug-in for SADiE, and Steinberg Nuendo systems that decodes and processes the discrete, four-channel B-Format audio output from SoundField’s MKV, ST250 and SPS422B surround microphone systems. Prior to Surround Zone, only the SoundField MKV pre-amp/processor or the SoundField SP451 Surround Sound Processor units could be used to ‘remix’ into mono, stereo, M/S, 5.1, 6.1, 7.1 (or any future surround format) a recording made using B-Format stems. “Now you don’t have to use the SP451 or tie up the microphone’s pre-amp/processor when doing post-production mixing,” said Brad Lunde president of TransAudio Group. “You also don’t have to interface those units to your DAW system–just load in the B-Format stems into your system and you’re set. This is great news.”
TransAudio Group also showed the GML mastering EQs and dynamic controllers and the Drawmer DL651 surround sound dynamics processor at Surround 2004.
