Minnetonka unveils loudness control tools

AUTHOR: Inavate

Minnetonka Audio Software has released AudioTools Focus, a family of stand–alone software processors that give users in broadcast, film, television, radio, over–the–top, and mobile/handheld producers control over the audio–specific aspects of their workflows.

The first product in the family, AudioTools Focus for Loudness Control, is a self–contained application designed for automated, intelligent loudness control.

It uses Minnetonka’s “purPath” digital signal processing and includes Dialogue Intelligence for dialog–anchored loudness correction, enabling smart loudness correction based on the actual percentage of dialog in the material.

It automatically detects input format from nine possible file types and it can extract the audio essence within MXF and QuickTime containers using the firm’s ReWrap technology.
