The CLC signal processing software, developed in cooperation with the Institut fr Rundfunktechnik, allows users to constantly control and regulate to a given programme-loudness value, along with a definable loudness range with minimal obstacles. The major asset of the complex adaptive morphing algorithm is its realtime capability. The CLC algorithm “learns” during processing about the dynamic structure and intention of the sound signal, and continuously adapts to predict what comes next. CLC software is able to handle most common DAW software, audio and files, and meets EBU-R128 and all other major global loudness standard specifications. Also on show will be the Masterclass Plug-ins (Loudness and Mastering Tools) and the TM3- Primus with USB Connect Tool. rtw.com Keyboards Editors Keys has launched its first wireless editing shortcut keyboards for audio producers, video editors and graphic designers and a range of budget friendly slim-line keyboards. The colour- coded keyboards contain all programme shortcut keys for Adobe Premiere, Adobe Photoshop, Avid Media Composer, Presonus Studio One and Ableton Live. “Having a full length wireless keyboard with you at all times means you can enjoy the benefits of portability without compromising on the time saving shortcuts a full keypad provides,” said Jonny Elwyn, broadcast editor and trainer.
