Audiofile Releases Triumph 2.5

A next-generation tool for audio editing, mastering, sound design, podcasting and post-production

Minneapolis, MN (January 21, 2015) – Audiofile, a leading music technology company, announces the release of Triumph 2.5 on the Mac App Store. Built on the success of the company’s Wave Editor, Triumph 2.5 represents the next generation in audio editing, mastering, sound design, podcasting and post-production with new features, powerful DSP and a refined workflow.

AF_Triumph_2_5

Triumph 2.5 is a significant step forward in Triumph’s evolution. Audiofile has improved workflow efficiency by redesigning the Render Assistant with the ability to render and export multiple formats simultaneously, allowing assets to be auditioned more easily by clicking “play” in an asset’s popover, and by adding video import functionality, which will appeal to sounds designers and those working in post-production.

Triumph 2.5 also represents a significant step forward for sample rate conversion and dither as it now includes algorithms by Goodhertz, creators of Triumph’s digital scrubbing feature and FHX™ headphone listening DSP. Goodhertz’ mastering-grade audio sample rate converter combines incredible sonic performance with unmatched speed and efficiency for a nearly ideal frequency response, preserving high frequency content and eliminating aliasing. Goodhertz dither is a custom-tailored noise shaping algorithm that, rather than relying on noisy peaks or drastic high frequency shaping, always remains smooth and natural sounding while preserving every possible detail of the audio.

“The Triumph workflow is revolutionary,” adds Ricardo Gutierrez, Grammy-winning mastering and mix engineer. “It’s a great Swiss army knife. The fact that it can play back different sample rates in a project is amazing. The shapes used for automation, and the way you can snap to grid the different shapes, is really cool. I’m fully in the box now with mastering and finally have the tools and plug-ins to work in the box. I haven’t touched my analogue gear since the summer. Clients want things so fast and Triumph lets you do that!”

Other additions and enhancements to Triumph include:

• Greatly improved performance and stability
• Optimized for OS X 10.10 Yosemite
• Enhanced editing of individual channels in the Waveform View
• Adds an option to import DDP sets from the File menu
• Improved SoundCloud integration
• Improved multichannel file support
• iZotope MBIT+ Dither™ and 64-bit SRC™ are now available by purchasing an additional license from the Audiofile online store or via in-app purchase in the Mac App Store version
• Various improvements to key commands
• Improved User Guide

“I really like this app a lot,” said Rich Breen, Grammy-winning recording, mix and mastering engineer. “Of course, most important are the sonics, and I’ve found it to be totally solid in this respect. For scripting, I can either duplicate and edit an existing script directly in Triumph, or copy it into AppleScript Editor and edit there for greater flexibility – I don’t know of any other audio apps that offer this kind of feature.”

Pricing and Availability
Triumph 2.5 is now available on the Audiofile website for $79.99. Triumph 2.3.2 is available on the Mac App Store for $79.99 with free update coming soon. For product and ordering information or to download a demo, visit http://www.audiofile-engineering.com/triumph/.

Audient Breaks New Ground At NAMM 2015

Anaheim, California – Seventeen years since its inception, British audio equipment manufacturer Audient brings exciting new products, a fresh, dynamic team, a progressive new owner and a new distribution partner to the United States.

Audient_Logo

No stranger to NAMM, Audient comes to this year’s show having picked up its third TEC-Award nomination, this time for the eight-channel mic pre, ASP880. Another recipient of much acclaim is the feature-packed USB AD/DA interface and monitoring system, iD22 which visitors to the show should be able to get a look at.

It all started with the large format ASP8024 analogue console designed by David Dearden, who himself lays claim to a sound electronics design experience second to none. He’s spent over 40 years working with consoles, headed up DDA, co-founded Audient, and also had the incredible experience of helping build the custom console used for John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ album.

“Every Audient product with a mic pre – including the latest releases, ASP880 and iD22 – incorporates the original Dearden-designed console preamps,” explains Chief Technical Officer, Tom Waterman taking pride in driving Audient’s engineering in new directions, whilst staying true to the company’s heritage. “Indeed Audient is the only company whose renowned mic pre design features throughout the whole range. It is testament to the design of the flagship analogue console, ASP8024 that it is still manufactured today and that there are more than 1,000 in daily use worldwide.”

ASP8024 is a top choice for schools as well as studios across the United States. Renowned creative institute Full Sail University packs a staggering 12 desks into a single teaching space; NYU Steinhardt and University of Central Oklahoma both possess one and Women’s Audio Mission has just taken delivery of its first 48 channel Audient.

Industry heavyweight Simon Blackwood is at now at Audient’s helm and has a proven track record for pro audio business development – past successes including Focusrite, Novation and founding Spirit.

A year after taking the reins he is very pleased with the brand’s progress, stating: “There was significant growth in our business in 2014 and our focus for 2015 is the US market”. Most recently he has utilised his close connections with industry manufacturing to help source new technology and better component pricing, which has led to the significant reduction in the price of iD22.

Together with Tom’s vision for exciting new products, Simon promises to propel Audient forward into the new year. “We have plenty of scope for further development over the next 12 months, and great energy from our team based in southern England. Setting up new distribution agreements in the States and across the globe is just the start of it.”

To bring this new direction to the USA, Audient has signed on a new distribution partner in Momentum Audio Sales. Founded by audio industry veteran John Devins on his experience in leading sales efforts for Steinberg, Cerwin-Vega, Focusrite/Novation, AKG, and JBL, Momentum Audio Sales is the perfect fit for Audient to expand their offerings in the US market. Devins will tap established dealer and sales rep networks in the US and is looking forward to a year of growth in 2015.

Lord of the Rings and Hobbit Dialogue Editor Editor Relies on iZotope’s Audio Toolkit

Bringing the Voices of Middle Earth to Life with RX 4 Audio Repair

Cambridge, MA. December 19, 2014 – iZotope, Inc., a leading audio technology company, revealed that Ray Beentjes, dialogue editor for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies, has made extensive use of iZotope’s RX 4 audio repair and enhancement toolkit to capture more of the actors’ on-set dialogue-resulting in more emotional performances and more impactful storytelling.

When Beentjes began working on The Lord of the Rings fifteen years ago, many of the actors’ best performances were unusable, often contaminated with noise from production equipment and the surrounding environment. In the end, only 5-10% of the original location audio was usable for the final cut, because the production team didn’t have a solution for salvaging the troubled audio.

“An actor could have delivered a stellar performance on location, but the audio would often be unusable,” Beentjes points out. “They would then have to spend hours in a dubbing room re-recording their lines, and due to the complexity of the production, they might be covering what was six months’ worth of filming in a two-day ADR session. That often makes it very difficult to create the same mood again,” explains Beentjes.

The audio team began searching for a solution that would enable them to rescue troubled audio from the best on-location performances and chose iZotope’s RX audio repair software, which Beentjes describes as a “game changer.” Today, the team is able to save more than 80% of the original production dialogue, and blend in ADR seamlessly when required.

“RX has been fantastic, and we’ve developed a completely different workflow,” Beentjes says. “Now we can focus on finding the best performances from the original material delivered by the actors. Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh love utilizing production audio over ADR where possible if it sells the performance better, and then it’s up to us to clean up that audio and get it working. That’s their gold, and that’s where the magic is for us.”

After the resounding success of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Beentjes and the team took on an equally epic project with the Hobbit trilogy. The films utilized cutting-edge camera technology, which presented Beentjes and the Dialogue team with a new set of technical challenges.

Instead of the normal 24 fps frame-rate, the films were shot in 3D at 48 fps, which required many of the lights to be re-engineered for flicker-free operation to avoid visual strobing. Unfortunately, the new lights and control methods often introduced extra high-frequency noise from 3 to 8 kHz-significantly interfering with dialogue clarity. However, using the Denoiser feature in RX 4, Beentjes was able to remove many of the artifacts created by the new lighting, while preserving the crisp definition of the original dialogue.

Another key feature Beentjes utilized in RX 4 was Spectral Repair, which enabled him to isolate and remove unwanted sounds, even during long passages of audio. For The Desolation of Smaug – the second film in the Hobbit series – a large part of the film takes place on a desolate mountain, devoid of animal and human life. Unfortunately, there were birds and other distracting noises all over the audio track.

“The magic of Spectral Repair is actually being able to take away the sounds that would take the audience out of the scene,” says Beentjes. “It could be a very important line, and there’s a Cessna prop plane taking off from a nearby airport that’s buzzing through the track. With Spectral Repair, we can go in and remove sounds that are completely out of context for the scene.”

The powerful tools in RX have not only advanced Beentjes’ workflow, they have helped the entire audio post team. Beentjes is now able to deliver dialogue to the re-recording mixers that is clean and sonically neutral-a process that used to require massive amounts of time and expensive studio equipment. Mixers are now able to spend more of their time and energy focusing solely on the mix.

“RX has really come into its own with RX 4 and the ability to run the standalone program connected to Pro Tools (via the RX Connect feature). What used to take us a couple of hours is now taking 20 minutes, which ends up saving the editors thousands of hours over the course of a project,” remarks Beentjes. “We are able to create material that is effectively the same as what would come out of a dubbing suite.”

“Like a person who is retouching photographs or restoring a historical film, I love the ability to rebuild or restore things,” Beentjes concludes. “RX 4 is the most complete set of tools we have, and I’m looking forward to whatever’s next. Each version drastically improves what we can do.”
