Integrated DAW project import/export and new hardware control implementation introduced 23/03/12
Solid State Logic has announced the release of Soundscape V6.2. This new version of SSL's industrial-strength DAW introduces significant new features that will benefit the existing Soundscape user community and facilitate a series of "workflow specific" products based on Soundscape's highly evolved audio workflow and file management. Soundscape V6.2 actually combines two of SSL's software products with the integration of Pro-Convert, SSL's DAW Project translation tool. The Soundscape V6.2 Pro-Convert installation offers direct import/export to a series of third-party DAWs from the Soundscape File Menu. V.62 imports and exports the audio file and selected audio track, clip and marker data for Pro-Tools 9 Sessions, Cubase/Nuendo Track-Archives, Final Cut XML and Samplitude/Sequoia EDL projects.
A new Console Control Module introduces a hardware control implementation that offers elegant physical control over the software using SSL's Nucleus and Matrix hybrid DAW control consoles. The new hardware control implementation delivers deep integration between SSL's multi-award-winning hardware control surfaces and Soundscape's advanced audio production workflow. The Soundscape V6.2 release also enables Soundscape to be used with SSL's MadiXtreme 64/128 PCIe audio interfaces for the first time, facilitating direct connection to audio converters, MADI-equipped consoles and routing systems for lower-cost system specification where systems don't require a software mixer environment. Soundscape 6.2 can still be purchased with an SSL MX4 interface if a DSP driven mixer and plug-in environment is still required. MX4 systems include the SSL Bus Compressor and EQ & Dynamics plug-ins as standard. The Soundscape V6.2 release also includes new MTC Master/Slave and MMC Slave Sync added to MX4 and MadiXtreme-based setups.
Jim Motley, Head of Workstation Partner Products at SSL, told Sonic State, "It is fantastic to be working with new partners to integrate SSL's control surfaces with software in different applications, and we intend to continue to develop profiles for the software our customers use. As well as winning numerous awards since launch, Nucleus continues to be the controller of choice for the serious audio professional, whether in music production, post production, content creation or game audio."
