Sound check on fly TC Electronic15 September 2014
In a move that the company describes as a new approach to loudness adjustment, the aNorm algorithm has been launched at IBC.
TC Electronic said the normalisation technology learns the incoming programme on the fly and adapts to hit user-defined targets for Program Loudness and Loudness Range (LRA).
At the same time, it delivers uncompromised audio that has not been dynamically processed unless requested. aNorm applies dynamic loudness processing only if normalisation by itself is not enough to hit the Targets for Program Loudness and Loudness Range.
TC Electronic has also debuted a new Loudness Processing Meter as part of aNorm. The Butterfly Meter displays content pre and post loudness normalisation using a graph that instantly provides an overview of how and why incoming audio is adjusted.
