Neyrinck the makers of V-Control Pro 2 have announced that V-Panner and V-Console iPad apps in V-Control Pro 2 now include a new Dolby Atmos plug-in panner screen for Pro Tools making V-Control Pro the first iPad touch screen solution to support the Dolby Atmos Plug-in control.
How Does The Dolby Atmos Pan Screen Work in Neyrinck V-Control Pro 2?
The Dolby Atmos plug-in is used to create 3D panning on Dolby Atmos object tracks in Pro Tools at the dubbing stage in an audio post production workflow. The 3D panning data from the Dolby Atmos plug-in is sent to the Dolby Rendering and Mastering Unit otherwise known as the RMU together with direct audio output of the object track. The new Dolby Atmos Pan Screen in the V-Panner and V-Console iPad app directly controls the object panning in the Dolby Atmos plug-in.
The Dolby Atmos iPad screen includes controls for Z Elevation, and Wedge, Ceiling and Sphere Elevation modes as well as an object size control, mirroring controls in the plug-in. Current V-Control Pro 2 customers can upgrade V-Console and V-Panner apps for no charge. All you need to do is download the latest version of V-Control Pro 2 software from the Neyrinck website.
