Neyrinck Introduces First iPad Touch-Screen App for Dolby Atmos Plug-In Control
V-Panner and V-Console iPad apps now include a new Dolby Atmos plug-in panner screen for Pro Tools
San Francisco, CA – July 14th 2016 – Neyrinck’s V-Control Pro 2 system for controlling DAWs from tablets, smartphones and laptop browsers now includes a Dolby Atmos® pan screen in V-Panner, and iOS versions of the V-Console app, for controlling the Dolby Atmos plug-in in Pro Tools. When using an iPad, V-Panner and V-Console can connect directly to the computer, without WiFi, using the Apple lightning to USB, or 30-pin to USB, cables which provides ultra-fast response and compatibility with secure facilities.

The Dolby Atmos plug-in is used to create spatial 3D panning for object tracks in Pro Tools on the dubbing stage. The 3D panning data from the Dolby Atmos plug-in is sent to the Dolby Rendering and Mastering Unit otherwise known as the RMU together with direct audio output of the object track. The new Dolby Atmos pan screen in the V-Panner and V-Console iPad app directly controls the object panning in the Dolby Atmos plug-in allowing for more creative movement control of the object from the iPad screen. This is the first and only touch-screen Dolby Atmos controller available.
The Dolby Atmos iPad screen includes controls for Z Elevation, and Wedge, Ceiling and Sphere Elevation modes as well as an object size control, mirroring controls in the plug-in. Current V-Control Pro 2 customers can upgrade V-Console and V-Panner apps for no charge and should download the latest version of V-Control Pro 2 software from the Neyrinck website.
V-Control Pro 2 is a complete integrated control system for OSX and Windows and includes the free 8 or 16-fader V-Console and the V-Panner control apps connecting through V-Control Pro 2 software to simplify control of the main media applications.
