VST (Virtual Studio Technology) is 15YO

VST (Virtual Studio Technology) is 15YO

VST – Virtual Studio Technology describes a protocol that makes possible the simulation of traditional recording / music production studios with software by using DSP / Digital Signal Processing. Practically is an interface between audio synthesizer and effects plugins and hard disk recording systems. The technology as the interface and also SDK was developed and released by Steinberg in 1996, exactly the year of the birth of Cubase 3.02. The first available VST formats was included with Cubase (Espacial, Choirus, Stereo Echo and Auto Panner). The VST interface as tech specs was updated to version 2.0 in 1999 and a major update was done in 2008 when was upgraded to version 3.0. Now we talk about version 3.5 since february 2011 and I have a feeling that the road does not come to an end yet.

So … if Steinberg gave birth to VST in 1996, the world’s leading audio interface is celebrating these days 15 year of existence.

TC Electronic Updates Its Entire Loudness Meter Range to Comply With ITU-R BS.1770-2

TC Electronic Updates Its Entire Loudness Meter Range to Comply With ITU-R BS.1770-2

A global audio revolution is in the happening. For the past two years, pro audio and broadcasting has been moving away from peak level normalization and towards new, loudness-based solutions. In April 2011, another important step was taken when ITU-R upgraded its BS.1770 standard to BS.1770-2.

The first version of BS.1770 relied on ambiguous speech detection, which can have unexpected consequences trying to control the level of commercials or programs of certain genres. The improved 1770-2 recommendation incorporates a clever relative gate, making the measurement well-defined and practical to use, also across genres.

It is now even relevant for controlling the level of promos and commercials. Further, the new version is completely open standard, because TC Electronic donated core technology to EBU, where it was refined by PLOUD; and now brought back into the revised ITU standard.
