The key new features are:
- Ingest. - The ability to load any Dolby Atmos ADM file into Pyramix. Pyramix can immediately build a complete mixer to play the loaded ADM correctly.
- Power. - For mastering or whenever you need to load multiple ADM files into your project, Pyramix gives you maximum help and speed: Choose to either have Pyramix automatically mapping beds/ objects to existing mixer busses or route it all manually to the mixer if you prefer. (Pyramix's powerful separation between timeline tracks and mixer strips means you can load as many ADM files as you want and keep organized!)
- CD Import. - Dolby Atmos is becoming more popular thanks to the immense demand from streaming platforms (Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon, etc.) so now there has never been more pressure to repurpose the huge existing CD catalogs into Dolby Atmos. This task requires careful work to preserve the original intention, timing and metadata of the original CD.
- Repackage. - Pyramix has been the most flexible immersive platform for more than a decade, being one of the first to bring multichannel as well as Ambisonic up to the 7th order.
- Trusted Tools. – In addition to the proven tools within Pyramix, we have close alliances with people sharing the same values and understanding of immersive audio through Dolby Atmos. Find out about our partners Flux and Penteo.
The ability to import ADM files into Pyramix also benefits Merging’s Ovation 10 because one can import to Pyramix, then publish to Ovation provided there is an Ovation Premium key present. Those ADM files can be used as audio cues for instant live playback, either through a Dolby Atmos Renderer or the built in Merging Renderer, capable of rendering up to 384 dedicated speakers with the MassCore Engine.
“Pyramix 14 is a logical development for Merging and was very much guided by our existing Dolby Atmos customer base.”; remarked Merging’s Head of Software Engineering, Dominique Brulhart. “The aim is to provide not only the most powerful workflow creatively, but to also automate some of the more time-consuming administrative tasks. We feel happy that this has been achieved.”
