Description

The Spanner is a powerful surround panner, channel manager, remapper and downmix plugin for AVID Pro Tools. It is the result of years of personal frustration with the Pro Tools panner and bussing setup and solves many of the common complaints about the surround workflow in Pro Tools. If you ever work in surround you'll appreciate this plugin I'm sure, but if mixing-in-the-box is your thing you're going to see this as a major step forward.

 

True surround panner

Functions as an upgrade to the standard surround panner, giving complete, independent control over each channel in a more practical single plugin interface. Each input channel is represented as a coloured dot in the panfield which can be used to control 5 key parameters. Panning around the 2 dimensional space is taken care of by just 2 parameters, Pan(left-right) and Fad(front-back) so you won't have to wrestle with dozens of unwanted parameters.

 

Up and down-sizes multiple track formats

Spanner can upsize or downsize all common track formats to multiple different output formats, allowing you to actually 'pan' an LCR or quad into the 7.0 mix bus or temporarily send a 7.1 stem out of a 5.1 bus for monitoring purposes.

 

Infinitely flexible folddown with DSP and Audiosuite support

Spanner has complete, continuous control over input gain and channel position and so can function as a down-mixer in whatever configuration you choose. Presets are provided for standard folddown types but you always retain control of the details of the down-mix. Support for 7.1 to 5.1-or-smaller downmixing is supported for both realtime and offline (Audiosuite) processing, meaning faster-than-realtime folddown is now possible.

 

Dedicated iPad remote control app

The purpose built iPad remote control app opens up powerful and flexible new workflows for the edit-room, the predub or the 3-man final mix stage.

Instantly follows pro tools spanner instances so you never have to think about loading a surround panner... it's just always there when you need it.

Pre-fade lfe send

The Lfe channel is treated just like any other input channel and can be piped into the main 5 channel panfield independent of it's level to the Lfe output. Likewise, any input channel can be sent pre-fade to the Lfe output and removed from the main 5 channel mix if needed. The upshot of this is that we no longer need dedicated 'sub' tracks to create a signal destined for the Lfe channel, just automate a spanner to send the signal to Lfe only.

 

Panner window follows track selection

When using Eucon controllers spanner will follow the currently selected track, just like the default EQ or dynamics. You have the option of calling up a plugin type from the surface and as you navigate around your tracks, Eucon will call up the relevant spanner instance so you can see and work with pans much more quickly than with the default panner.

 

Post-pan meters in mix and edit windows

With a spanner inserted, you can quickly and easily see where things have been panned by glancing at the Pro Tools meters. If something has been accidentally panned to the right surround you can see it clearly even with very small track sizes.

 

Double-precision, low CPU overhead

Despite it's smoothed parameters and double-precision internal processing, spanner is efficient enough to run on every channel in your session. Even modest macs can run hundreds of instances and still have plenty of room for your usual plugin set.
