    Wut? My CPU is already doing DSP (Cubase, Pro Tools, Bitwig, etc).
    Also, the site seems to be down so I can't really tell what makes this different.

    This would be relevant if you had loads of unnecessary background services like a virus scanner and any cpu-killing "desktop security software". Or a trojan eating your CPU to calculate bitcoins.

    Every OS has a task monitor that you can use to see how much CPU other apps consume. Keep your audio machine clean from junk and you simply don't need that.
    Pyramix seems strong in handling Surround and multichannel (>2) audio but weak at handling MIDI.
    I doubt it'll be able to replace our go-to DAWs.

    Is Merging Pyramix Faster?

    No, but it's very, very, very much more expensive. You need to believe in the existence of a mystery magic mathematic that allows Pyramix to make CPUs do more work in the same time than any other DAW can, and which has survived analysis and replication by other DAW makers in the absence of a patent.

    Pyramix was very, very good before almost all the other players were. It remains very, very good because of the money people will pay for it. People carry on paying for it because they've acquired the soft skills to use the package. A bit like Cubae users. It's not the DAW it's the limitations of the user using it.

    See that? That's not the Matterhorn, that's the learning curve of another DAW. Any DAW. Makes no difference. Want to be the only person using a Pyramix crack?

    Milestones
    Merging Technologies embraced Audio over IP nearly 10 years ago, quickly recognizing the huge advantages of using a network connection for audio transport in and out of a DAW, combined with the significant benefit of the increased length and simplification of the cabling.

    Another milestone was achieved in 2017 by linking Pyramix 11 to ANEMAN; our new Audio Network Manager tool. Bringing all your RAVENNA/AES67 devices within one interface gives you full control of the network.

    Pyramix 12 sees the inclusion of a full Ambisonic workflow with the inclusion of the b<>com decoder in the mixer. 1st and 2nd order decoding is standard with the higher orders a cost option. There are significant enhancements to the mastering options and improvements to the mixing and monitoring features. Unicast support for ANEMAN and full integration with Anubis offer more flexibility for the user in all scenarios.

    Pyramix 12 proves beyond doubt that it has all the functionality needed to be the one and only DAW to handle so many diverse audio applications.

    Pyramix 12.0
    New Features and Enhancements
    Complete hybrid Channel Based & Ambisonic workflow
    Pyramix 12 includes a complete hybrid Channel Based/Ambisonic workflow, allowing for encoding, mixing, rotating and decoding Ambisonic signal directly in the mixing console. Ambisonic Decoders supported up to 7th order in Pyramix v12 and Ovation v8 with the b<>com integration within the Pyramix mixer.

    • Ambisonic Strips and Ambisonic Groups of 3rd to 7th order are properly decoded if the VR Pack key is present
    • Ambisonic Strips and Ambisonic Groups of 1st and 2nd order are always decoded even if the VR Pack key is not present
    • Ambisonic Strips and Ambisonic Groups of 3rd to 7th order are decoded using a 2nd order decoder if the VR Pack key is NOT present

    Pyramix 11.1
    New Features and Enhancements
    Full Object Based Audio workflow
    Pyramix 10 introduced a new bus structure (7.1, 9.1, 13.1, 22.2, etc.) including a 3D panner and the appropriate monitoring section, and now Pyramix 11.1 is the first DAW with a complete workflow to generate master files with Object-Based Audio (OBA) metadata according to the Audio Definition Model (ADM) or MPEG-H 3D audio.

    This now completes the former OBA workflow, primarily designed for Dolby Atmos mixing for Film or Immersive Live performance, into a comprehensive workflow for TV production with the addition of multi-language support and ADM format export.

    More information in this press release.

    IPS IBC 2017 Ep 15 Merging from IPS TV on Vimeo.

    Album Publishing enhancements and new standalone application
    Even faster workflow to export your mastermix with all the metadata (entered once) in multiple file formats simultaneously. Album Publishing is now an independent application (automatically installed with Pyramix), preferences can now be easily saved concerning the order of the metadata that one wants to see in the filename. The source file could be a simple WAV file or a MTFF file (containing metadata produced by Pyramix) and produce MP3, FLAC and AIFF in different sample rates and bit rates at the same time.

    Mixer, VST Hosting now supporting VST3 plugins
    Pyramix 11.1 now supports VST3 plugins:
    The VST3 plugins are known for their technological and creative advancements. Users can now benefit from: Improved performance, Resizable edit windows (when the plugin supports it) and multiple dynamic I/O’s as VST3 plugins are no longer limited to a fixed number of inputs and outputs.

    [​IMG]

    Mixer, VST routing view available in the Plugin user interface
    This new feature allows specific multitrack routing within the desired VST and VS3 plugin. This allows e.g. in a 5.1 strip to affect a desired plugin only on Left, Right, LeftSr and RightSr without no effect on Center and LFE channel. The delay compensation is automatically compensated.

    [​IMG]

    Support for EBU Audio Definition Model (ADM) metadata
    Pyramix is a DAW ready for Object Based Audio (OBA), having multiformat busses from mono to all multibus standards (Dolby 7.1+4 or NHK 22.2 etc…) with up to 128 object busses. Before performing the mixdown, one will also add the metadata (such as languages, audio description channels etc) and generate the ADM BWF file containing all the metadata.

    [​IMG]

    Support for generating MPEG-H Authoring Tool projects
    Pyramix now supports ADM so Merging has worked with Fraunhofer to support its MPEG-H format. So that once the file is generated, as for ADM, the Fraunhofer authoring tool generates the MPEG-H file.

    Packs Updated, Increased Output Bus Channel Count
    Regarding Pyramix Native Essentials (MSP-NAT-ESS), not only did we massively reduce the price (see your Merging Sales Partner for details) of the entry-level Pyramix Essentials but also wanted to make it more palatable by including the following options right away in that basic version:

    • Remote Control (EMC: HUI / Oasis Econony Class)
    • Pow-r Redithering
    • Advanced Interchange (Sonic Solutions /OpenTL Import/FCP XML)
    All new MSP-NAT-ESS keys generated after December 1st 2017 will include the above additional options. Existing MSP-NAT-ESS customers under current ASM are also eligible to have their keys enhanced accordingly upon demand.

    And if that wasn't already enough improvement, instead of limiting the MSP-NAT-ESS to just stereo busses , we expand its functionality up to 5.1 busses , allowing basic Surround work, while making it also suitable for respectable Immersive projects by doubling its max. channel count from 24 to 48 (at 1FS).

    It doesn't stop there however, as we also enhanced both Pyramix Native Standard (MSP-NAT-STD) and Pyramix MassCore Standard (MSP-MSC-STD) with following additional options:

    • Pow-r Redithering
    • DDP Creation
    • Advanced Interchange (Sonic Solutions /OpenTL Import/FCP XML)
    While increasing their max. buss types from 5.1 to 7.1.

    Pyramix Native Pro (MSP-NAT-PRO) also will see its max. buss type increased from 9.1 to 22.2 (will also be implemented and available as of the release of upcoming Pyramix V11.1 version)

    See this for more details


    Remote Controller Enhancements
    Using a controller for Pyramix is an obvious way of working for some of our customers. They requested some more comprehensive and better integration, which we have implemented in Pyramix 11.1 with the following control devices:

    • From SSL: Nucleus 2
    • From AVID: PT Dock, S3 & S6
    Please refer to our knowledge base for detailed information.
