UK - Atlas Show Control for spatial audio which was recently named Sound Product of the Year by the ABTT, has been officially launched.
The show control software is designed with the control and implementation of spatial audio engines at its heart. Atlas ‘aims to change the way in which designers and operators interact with the plethora of audio hardware and software within their environment’.
Atlas supports incoming positional data from trackers offering control and smoothing algorithms. Atlas can also output control data to other audio applications, sound consoles, video servers and lighting consoles.
Atlas allows for manual positional programming, the use of hardware trackers or a combination of both as demands dictates. Atlas is designed to provide users with a friendly user interface whilst unleashing the full potential of spatial audio control.
Atlas currently offers support for d&b audiotechnik Soundscape, Zaktrack object tracking, DiGiCo and Yamaha Rivage sound consoles with upcoming support for other major spatial audio platforms.
Atlas Show Control has been developed by long time theatre industry professionals Dominic Bilkey and Jack Lord. Dominic is head of sound at the National Theatre and an Olivier and Tony nominated sound designer. Jack is a freelance communications engineer and software developer. Utilising their combined experiences and interests, Atlas provides the missing link between audio hardware and the operators and designers ability to create and operate complex sound designs, says the company.
Jack Lord is also responsible for other industry recognised software such as Show StopWatch, Lazy Programmer and Address Book. The software was recently deployed on the successful run of The Lehman Trilogy during its run at the Gillian Lynn Theatre in the West End and is currently in use on WNO’s Candide.
