MASI Bows SurCode Updates

Minnetonka Audio Software, Inc. has released new updated versions of its various SurCode products for Dolby E.

Minnetonka, MN (August 22, 2012)—Minnetonka Audio Software, Inc. has released new updated versions of its various SurCode products for Dolby E.

They include a 2.1 release of its SurCode for Dolby E family of software encoders and decoders, and a 2.0 release of its SurCode for Dolby E Stream Player purpose-built for Apple’s Final Cut Pro.

Dolby E transports multichannel digital audio across an asset’s entire post-production life cycle, and SurCode for Dolby E handles file-based processing of Dolby E. The new version 2.1 of SurCode for Dolby E encoder and decoder now embraces all of Avid’s professional applications with enhanced Dolby E capabilities, while retaining interoperability with legacy Dolby E hardware. Both 32 and 64 bit versions of Mac OS and Windows are supported.

The SurCode for Dolby E suite supports Avid’s Pro Tools, Media Composer, NewsCutter and Symphony product lines, with an AudioSuite encoder/decoder and an RTAS decoder. VST 2.4 is also supported on 32 and 64 bit, surround-capable hosts including Nuendo, Fairlight and Sequoia. One license will run all versions on any platform. A new Mixdown feature for Media Composer, Symphony and NewsCutter allows users to apply the RTAS decoder, in a faster-than-real time capacity, to a multichannel bus. This not only decodes the audio but automatically creates a multichannel track and prints the decoded PCM audio to that track.

SurCode for Dolby E 2.1 also acknowledges Apple’s Final Cut Pro, with an Export Plug-in for FCP 6 and 7. In addition to the SurCode for Dolby E 2.1 encoder and decoder, a new 2.0 AU version of the SurCode for Dolby E Stream Player adds support for Final Cut Pro. SurCode for Dolby E Stream Player is available separately or bundled with the full SurCode for Dolby E Encoder and Decoder.

“With a wealth of usability enhancements, the addition of Media Composer and NewsCutter support, and the special Stream Player version for Final Cut, I think we’ve delivered the strongest and most comprehensive Dolby E solution available,” noted John Schur, president of Minnetonka Audio. “IBC is just around the corner and we’ll be featuring SurCode for Dolby E with demos on all partner platforms.”

Version 2.1 of SurCode for Dolby E Encoder and Decoder and version 2.0 of SurCode for Dolby E Stream Player are no-charge upgrades for existing license holders, and how-to videos are available for the Apple and Avid use cases.
