MP3 conversion software that adds timecode information?
Mark Orusa posted a topic in The Post PlaceI don't do it very often, but sometimes I convert BWAV files to mp3 for transcription. I have yet to find mp3 conversion software that will carry over timecode information from BWAV files into the mp3 tags. I know from experience that recording directly to mp3 from a Sound Devices recorder will spread all kinds of useful metadata-like information into mp3 tag fields. Timecode, track names, etc... But doing this after the fact via conversion software would be handy. Now that I've gone Nomad I'm curious to see how the mp3 recording option will handle metadata. It is yet-to-be-implemented currently. Actually, I'm going to HAT! Mark

Maggot Spanner Software
VASI posted a topic in The Post PlaceMaggot Spanner Software Spanner is a powerful surround channel manager, panner, remapper and folddown plugin for AVID Pro Tools. It is the result of years of personal frustration with the Pro Tools panner and bussing setup and solves many of the common complaints about the surround workflow in Pro Tools. If you ever work in surround you'll appreciate this plugin I'm sure, but if mixing-in-the-box is your thing you're going to see this as a major step forward. True surround panner Functions as an upgrade to the standard surround panner, giving complete, independent control over each channel in a more practical single plugin interface. each input channel is represented as a coloured dot in the panfield which can be used to control 5 key parameters. panning around the 2 dimensional space is taken care of by just 2 parameters, Pan(left-right) and Fad(front-back) so you won't have to wrestle with dozens of unwanted parameters. Up and down-sizes multiple track formats Spanner can upsize or downsize all common track formats to multiple different output formats, allowing you to actually 'pan' an LCR or quad into the 7.0 mix bus or temporarily send a 7.1 stem out of a 5.1 bus for monitoring purposes. Infinitely flexible folddown with Audiosuite support Spanner has complete, continuous control over input gain and channel position and so can function as a down-mixer in whatever configuration you choose. presets are provided for standard folddown types but you always retain control of the details of the down-mix. support for 7.1 to 5.1-or-smaller downmixing is supported for both realtime and offline (Audiosuite) processing, meaning faster-than-realtime folddown is now possible. Pre-fade lfe send The Lfe channel is treated just like any other input channel and can be piped into the main 5 channel panfield independent of it's level to the Lfe output. likewise, any input channel can be sent pre-fade to the Lfe output and removed from the main 5 channel mix if needed. the upshopt of this is that we no longer need dedicated 'sub' tracks to create a signal destined for the Lfe channel, just automate a spanner to send the signal to Lfe only. Panner window follows track selection When using Eucon controllers spanner will follow the currently selected track, just like the default EQ or dynamics. you have the option of calling up a plugin type from the surface and as you navigate around your tracks, Eucon will call up the relevant spanner instance so you can see and work with pans much more quickly than with the default panner. Post-pan meters in mix and edit windows With a spanner inserted, you can quickly and easily see where things have been panned by glancing at the Pro Tools meters. if something has been accidentally panned to the right surround you can see it clearly even with very small track sizes. Double-precision, low CPU overhead Despite it's smoothed parameters and double-precision internal processing, spanner is efficient enough to run on every channel in your session. even modest macs can run hundreds of instances and still have plenty of room for your usual plugin set. Supported track formats input: mono, stereo, LCR, quad, 5.0, 5.1, 7.0, 7.1 output: mono, stereo, LCR, quad, 5.0, 5.1, 7.0, 7.1 audiosuite: stereo, LCR, quad, 5.0, 5.1, 7.0, 7.1 New authorisation system Spanner employs maggot's new authorisation system which is aimed at providing a degree of security to the software while giving the user a fair amount of flexibility. The software can be authorised to the local machine or to any reasonably modern USB thumb-drive which can then be moved to other machines, much like a hardware dongle. 3 authorisations are allocated to each purchase which are described as 1 license and 2 backups authorisations in case of hardware failure. each time an authorisation is made, the internet must be visible in order for maggot to verify the authenticity of the application.

Editing Meta Data on Mirrored Files (Nomad)
Mike Wally posted a topic in EquipmentMe again. Random thing I'm curious if anyone has experimented with. The Mirror files obviously make a copy of what is recorded first to the primary card. If I go back, and re-name a take, or add a note that the last take was "room tone", but the Nomad has already mirrored the segment (since it does it automatically). I'm assuming that means that the mirror files would then lack the same meta-data as the primary. The work around to this would be to leave mirrored off, until you know there is a break, or a scene change, and that all your meta data is up to date. Just curious
