SoundCode LtRt Tools now 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.

Integrated Stereo Down Mixing

SoundCode LtRt Tools makes it simple to add down mix processing to a Pro Tools session for many types of applications.

SoundCode LtRt Tools is a Pro Tools 10 AAX DSP, Native, and Audiosuite plug-in that can simply be inserted on a Pro Tools track. Because it is a plug-in, it is compatible with powerful Pro Tools features such as control surface operation, automation, and preset management.

Down Mix Compatibility Checking
SoundCode LtRt Tools can be used to check how a surround mix will down mix to stereo.

SoundCode LtRt Tools features a “Down Mix” control that can be used to enable/disable down mixing while mixing with a surround speaker system. When enabled, the surround mix is down mixed to stereo and output on the left and right channels of the surround speaker system. Also, SoundCode LtRt Tools can be used to feed a dedicated, alternate stereo speaker system.

Edit & Monitor On Any Pro Tools System

SoundCode LtRt Tools makes it easy to edit surround audio projects using a Pro Tools system connected to a stereo speaker system. Just insert SoundCode LtRt Tools on the surround mix bus and all audio channels will be mixed to stereo so an editor hears everything with just two speakers or headphones.

Pro Tools LE Monitoring
The Pro Tools Complete Production Toolkit allows Pro Tools LE to open Pro Tools HD surround projects. But Pro Tools LE hardware such as MBox Micro can only output two audio channels. SoundCode LtRt Tools can be used by Pro Tools LE systems to make a stereo monitor mix when working with surround projects.
