RTW Updates Plug-in Suites and Introduces New Stereo-Only Versions
RTW focuses on visualizing audio in order to let audio engineers take informed decisions in professional broadcast, production, post production and quality control. Apart from hardware audio meters and monitoring devices, RTW offers a range of native plug-in suites, comprising Loudness Tools, Mastering Tools and Continuous Loudness Control.
New Version 4.1
Now, these plug-in suites are updated to version 4.1, introducing a new licensing system that is server-based and therefore shareable. The multi-seat licenses can be installed on a server and shared across a local area network, which will benefit large facilities in terms of production workflows with multiple contributors. Two multi-seat licenses are available: 2 seats and 10 seats.
Introducing Dedicated Stereo Versions
Previously, the RTW plug-in suites have been for both stereo and surround productions, but now a dedicated stereo-only version will also be available, as a cost-efficient alternative. And not all producers – particularly in music production – have a need for surround audio metering or processing. The surround versions of the plug-in suites still include stereo operation.
Enhanced Pro Tools Support
The multi-channel features of the surround plug-ins have been improved, as the surround version now aligns with the Pro Tools channel layout from mono and up to 8 channels. Further, in the setup page, a new channel activity indicator makes it significantly easier for users to set up their multi-channel workflows.
Operating System Compatibility
The new version 4.1 of the RTW plug-ins is compatible with the latest operating systems, including Mac OS Mojave and Windows 10 in order to integrate with any system. This applies to both the original stereo+surround edition, as well as the new stereo-only version.
Further, version 4.1 is a free update to existing users, for new users, pricing starts at USD 99 MAP. A complete pricing overview, including upgrades from stereo-only, is available in the RTW online store.
