Nugen Audio has launched the AMB Audio Management Batch processor, a suite of modular software that will expedite a range of audio management tasks. AMB expands on the concept of Nugen Audio's loudness management batch processing technology for high-speed audio loudness measurement and correction. AMB enables post-production facilities to speed workflows significantly and reduce delivery times for a range of different tasks, such as upmixing and loudness management. AMB also offers new features including threaded algorithm processing and multiple processing threads that are addressable for simultaneous parallel handling of files and queues.
"Our loudness processing is the fastest in its class, offering a highly efficient and cost-effective batch-file solution that meets audio professionals' most demanding requirements," said Jon Schorah, founder and creative director, Nugen Audio. "AMB significantly increases these capabilities to give customers batch processing options for more of our award-winning, workflow-enhancing technologies."
AMB offers unprecedented scalability, allowing post-production facilities of all sizes to add the precise processing modules they need and tailor the system to their exact requirements. AMB comes standard with two watch folders/processing queues. If users need extra power and speed, the AMB Queue Expansion provides additional watch folders/processing queues. A total of up to 16 AMB Queue Expansions can be added.
As standard, the base AMB module also includes two independent processing threads that optimize workflows by allowing two simultaneous processes to run in parallel. For even greater speed and efficiency, users can add the AMB Thread Expansion to activate additional processing threads up to a total of 16.
A range of module options, including new customization features in the AMB processor, enable customers to carry out a greater range of audio-processing tasks than ever before.
Each additional functional module (Loudness, Upmix, DynApt, MXF, and ProRes) is priced at $999. The additional expansions to increase processing power and speed — the AMB Queue Expansion, which adds additional watch folders/processing queues, and the AMB Thread Expansion, which adds a processing thread — can be added up to a total of 16 folders and 16 threads at $499 each.
Existing Nugen Audio LMB processor users will be able to upgrade to the AMB base configuration including the Loudness Module for an introductory price of $249, which will double their existing number of folders/queues and available processing threads. Owners can also cross-grade any of their existing LMB extensions for DynApt, ProRes, and MXF to corresponding AMB modules free of charge.
