NAB 2019: RTW and Avid share new plug-in partnership

RTW and Avid have initiated a partnership to bring RTW Mastering Tools, Loudness Tools and CLC Continuous Loudness Control to the Avid Marketplace in stereo as well as stereo+surround versions.

The collaboration was revealed as part of the companies’ NAB Show announcements.

With the recent 4.1 update of the RTW plug-ins, these audio measuring and correcting tools now stand stronger together with Avid’s Pro Tools than ever before, according to Avid.

We’re proud to announce this partnership with Avid, who is a key market leader within digital audio editing,” said Andreas Tweitmann, CEO of RTW (pictured below). “It is always important to us that we remain accessible to all customers, and the Avid Marketplace is strategically a great place to add as an option for our customers.”

“It is a pleasure to welcome RTW as a plug-in provider, as they represent decades of experience and proven results in the field of measuring audio and presenting it visually,” added Ed Gray, director, partnering programs, Avid. “We are certain their tools will benefit many Pro Tools users around the world.”

The multi-channel features of the surround plug-ins have been improved, as the surround version now aligns with the Pro Tools channel layout from mono and up to eight channels. Further, in the setup page, a new channel activity indicator makes it easier for users to set up their multi-channel workflows.

The new version 4.1 of the RTW plug-ins is compatible with the latest operating systems, including Mac OS Mojave and Windows 10 in order to integrate with any system. This applies to both the original stereo+surround edition, as well as the stereo-only version.
