Plug-ins That Prove Pro Tools AudioSuite Is Still Essential In Many Of Today's Demanding Mixing Workflows

November 12, 2019, 09:49 AM


In this article we take a look at several third-party plug-ins which we feel make excellent examples of how relevant AudioSuite plug-ins still are for both processing and workflow applications.

The AJA FS-HDR is an outstanding HDR toolbox

November 11, 2019, 08:40 AM


There's often something of a gap between the introduction of a new technique and the ready availability of the tools required to work with it. Other than stereo 3D, HDR is one of the best examples of this: it can require an entirely new transformation, monitoring and display chain. Within that requirement, we're also going to need converters between formats, controls to adjust the video, and ways to solve compatibility problems. These tools are the things which tend to trickle out of the factory gates only once we've identified the problems that need to be solved, and, sure enough, one such device is helping power the uptake of HDR across a range of productions from live television to narrative cinematic projects.
