Avid Neyrinck SoundCode for Dolby Digital – No Longer Available

Dolby Digital encoding plug-in for Pro Tools - RTAS
MFR# 9910-18676-00

Product Description

The Avid Neyrinck SoundCode for Dolby Digital plug-in suite provides mastering-quality workflow tools that enable you to encode and decode Dolby Digital (AC-3) audio directly within Pro Tools software, without the need for dedicated Dolby hardware. Whether you are mixing in surround, delivering surround audio for DVD video, decoding audio from a DVD video within Pro Tools, creating a DVD reference disk, or producing a surround-compatible audio CD, SoundCode provides a range of powerful features to help you accomplish your goals, all within the industry-standard Pro Tools environment.

Faster-Than-Real-Time* Encoding
The SoundCode Encoder offers a fast way to encode audio as AC-3 and WAV files from a Pro Tools session, ready for use with DVD audio or video authoring applications, CD burning applications, or any other application that uses the Dolby Digital standard. Because the SoundCode Encoder operates as an AudioSuite™ plug-in, you can encode Dolby Digital faster than real time* to accelerate your workflow. SoundCode encodes to all AC-3 file types, including AC-3 with time code.

SoundCode also encodes to 16 or 24 bit stereo interleaved WAV files so you can lay back the Dolby Digital audio to digital tape or create an audio disc for playback on a consumer stereo system that has a Dolby Digital decoder. With the SoundCode Encoder, you can adjust preprocessing settings and add extensive metadata to ensure greater consistency in the presentation of audio on a variety of playback systems. The SoundCode Encoder also gives you the option to import the encoded Dolby Digital audio back into the Pro Tools timeline, where you can decode and monitor it using the real-time SoundCode Decoder.

Punch In/Out Capabilities
SoundCode includes a time-saving Punch In/Out encoding feature that allows you to punch in fixes to an existing AC-3 file. If you've already encoded the audio for a two-hour program but need to replace a single line of dialog, SoundCode lets you encode just that line, without having to re-encode the entire two-hour soundtrack. SoundCode then automatically “punches in” that line to the correct location within the previously encoded file.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
