Jan 23, 2015 2:53 PM
RISSKOV, DENMARK� LCn Loudness Correct has been added to TC Electronic''s loudness tools. It is available either as a Pro Tools plug-in or as a complementary stand-alone version with watch folder capability for automatic batch-normalization of multiple audio files
LCn is available for stereo or 5.1 surround � LC2n and LC6n respectively.
The plug-in version allows Pro Tools users to apply faster-than-real-time, two-pass, off-line processing from within their host, while the stand-alone version runs on PC and Mac. Another practical feature is the �traffic light� indicators to quickly see whether or not a file is compliant with the standard chosen. Finally, the watch folder feature also works across a networked system, so users could install it on a central server and simply drag their audio files to it from any computer on the network. Users may paste multiple audio files into the watch folder, making the LCn an efficient loudness batch processor.
A key functionality in the stand-alone version is the dedicated watch folder that allows users to drag and drop their audio files into a user-defined target folder for fast and easy loudness normalization and true peak limiting. The new, normalized file will automatically be created in another user-defined destination folder, and the application can be set to automatically delete the original file or keep it in the watch folder.
LCn takes the very latest revision of the EBU R128 standard into consideration by adding a �Short-Term Max Limit'' feature that the user can choose to activate.
The Radar Meter on the left shows the loudness landscape over time (short-term loudness) of the original content, and as soon as the processing has been completed, the loudness landscape is shown on the right radar reflecting the new, loudness-normalized audio file.
LCn is be available through TC Electronic''s dealers and distributors as well as in the TC Electronic online store.
