Neyrinck in San Francisco announces that it is now shipping the new SoundCode LtRt Tools for Pro Tools 10, which features LtRt encoding and Pro Logic IIx decoding for broadcasters and audio post facilities. Neyrinck states that its older SoundCode Stereo LtRt plug-in for Pro Tools can be upgraded to add the new Pro Logic decoding features.

SoundCode LtRt Tools is a suite of Pro Tools AAX Native, AAX DSP, and AudioSuite plug-ins designed for post-production studios, TV mixers, videogame mixers, and broadcasters that monitor or deliver stereo down mixed and LtRt encoded audio compatible with Pro Logic I and II decoders. SoundCode LtRt Tools includes a Pro Logic IIx decoder licensed from Dolby Laboratories Inc. It provides 7.1, 5.1, and LCRS decoding so mixers can simulate consumer system playback environments.

Company founder Paul Neyrinck states that he has always wanted to enhance the product: "SoundCode Stereo LtRt is the standard for LtRt encoding in Pro Tools with its flexible, fast encoding. And now that Avid is not updating Dolby Surround Tools for AAX, customers need a new way to decode and monitor LtRt encoded audio. So we partnered with Dolby to bring Pro Logic decoding to AAX Native and DSP systems. Now users can decode and monitor LtRt encoded material within Pro Tools, so this is a welcome update to our surround sound product range."

SoundCode LtRt Tools is available from Neyrinck dealers around the world and can also be purchased online from the Neyrinck Store. It is priced at $695 or $399 as an upgrade for existing Soundcode Stereo LtRt users.

For customers who have not yet upgraded to Pro Tools 10 or who do not need the decoder, the original SoundCode Stereo LtRt package is also available for $349.
