RTW in Cologne, Germany, announces that software Version 4 is now available for both its Loudness Tools and Mastering Tools plug-ins. Version 4 adds support for Mac OS X 10.11 “El Capitan” and updates including a selectable 12th octave RTA, the implementation of cinema loudness standards (TASA and SAWA), and a freely scalable display.
As of V. 4, Loudness Tools and Mastering Tools software can be operated as stand-alone versions on both Mac and PC.
Loudness Tools and Mastering Tools are part of RTW’s Masterclass PlugIns range that provides RTW hardware meters as software. By transferring the analyzer tools to plug-ins that require no additional hardware, RTW has made its tools more available to musicians, radio producers and audio/video engineers who need to meet loudness specifications required by TV and radio broadcasters.
Loudness Tools features metering and loudness displays for mono, stereo, multichannel and surround applications (eight channels max.). All standard sampling rates up to 96 kHz, including all widely used PPM and TruePeak measurements and scales, are also incorporated into the software.
