RTW Introduces New Stereo-Only Versions of Plugins

RTW has updated its plugin suites to version 4.1, creating a dedicated stereo-only plugin as a cost-efficient alternative to its current line surround plugins.

RTW said not all producers – particularly in music production – have a need for surround audio metering or processing. The surround versions of the plug-in suites still include a stereo option.

The company is also introducing a new licensing system that is server-based and shareable. The multi-seat licenses can be shared across a local area network, which will benefit the workflows of large facilities with multiple contributors. Multi-seat licenses are available for two seats and 10 seats.

RTW focuses on visualizing audio in order to let audio engineers make decisions in professional broadcast, production, post production and quality control environments. Apart from hardware audio meters and monitoring devices, RTW offers a range of native plug-in suites. These including loudness tools, mastering tools and continuous loudness control.
Version 4.1 of the software also improves the multi-channel features of the surround plug-ins. The surround version now aligns with the Pro Tools channel layout from mono and up to eight channels. In the setup page, a new channel activity indicator makes it easier for users to set up their multi-channel workflows.

Version 4.1 of RTW plug-ins is compatible with the latest operating systems, including Mac OS Mojave and Windows 10 in order to integrate with any system. This applies to both the original stereo+surround edition, as well as the new stereo-only version.
Version 4.1 is a free update to existing users. For new users, pricing starts at $99. A complete pricing overview, including upgrades from stereo-only, is available in the RTW online store.
