Official Release from Merging: Pyramix 25th Anniversary Edition, Ovation 9, VCube 9

Official Release from Merging: Pyramix 25th Anniversary Edition, Ovation 9, VCube 9

This year we are celebrating Merging Technologies 30th anniversary!

New Offering, New prices, New Features

There is also another significant milestone. Twenty-five years ago, the first Pyramix version was launched.

We want to thank all of you for joining us on this adventure and we are looking forward to even greater success in the future.

Today it is our intention to make something special as we proudly announce the official release of major new versions for all of our software range: Pyramix 25th Anniversary Edition, Ovation 9 and VCube 9.

The new ANEMAN 1.2.3 version comes along with those releases.

These versions will require a new set of keys. All customers under ASM are therefore entitled to a free upgrade, and should have received their new keys.

Note: If you have not received your Pyramix 25th/ Ovation 9/ VCube 9 keys you may contact your local Merging Sales Partners in order to get your keys or update your ASM plan.

Discover our latest innovations 

Dolby Atmos® Renderer Support

For decades Pyramix users have earned awards for fantastic immersive music.

2020 forced many of us to stay at home and we thought there was no better time to help bring this beautiful music into everyone's home.

Dolby Atmos is transforming the way we consume music and is becoming the most democratic, adaptive and available format for immersive music.

Pyramix 25th now fully supports Dolby Atmos workflows and introduces unique features to streamline the process of delivering in Dolby Atmos for those who have been working natively in 5.1.4/ 7.1.4/ 9.1.6.

FLUX SPAT Revolution Support

Ovation has been the ultimate audio cue player and show controller.

Over the past few years it has been central to enabling immersive shows with its virtual room feature and built-in 3D rendering engine supporting Next Generation Audio (Busses, scene based audio such as Ambisonic up to the 7th order and objects).

With the incredible success of SPAT from our close friends at FLUX, there was no question we should partner and offer an integrated solution to our loyal customers by offering a complete workflow using SPAT, from creation to rehearsal and then live.

 

You can now playback audio cues along with panning automation from Ovation into SPAT for objects’ synchronous movements.

 

During rehearsal, panning may need to be adjusted to fit a new direction matching the live action.

You can manipulate the panning of audio elements from SPAT and Ovation can record automation (OSC or anything else) straight into an Ovation cue.

Combined with Ovation's instant ability to send and bring back audio into Pyramix for editing, this makes updating a really fast and simple operation. Never ask your director to wait anymore!

OSC Support

Read OSC? Yes you did!

Ovation can now send, receive and even record OSC commands to enable interactivity with any OSC controller or to control any OSC device.

This brings in a new level of integration and creation for the show designer.

THE CLOSEST SOUND TO ANALOG... now for everyone!

Merging Technologies moto has been: Your music and only your music.

We want our technology to help you capture and deliver the most astounding sonic experiences.

We want to be transparent and leave you in full control of the music.

DSD/DXD are the formats that brings you so close to the original analog sound that you literally forget everything about digital.

For our 30th Anniversary, we wanted to make this capability way more affordable to the music community.

Our premium range of interfaces (Horus/ Hapi/ Anubis) allows you to record in such "analog-like" resolution.

From now on when you decide to purchase one of our interfaces, you can get a FREE Pyramix ELEMENTS allowing you to start dicovering what your music sounds like in DSD or DXD.

Merging provides the RAVENNA/AES67 solution for the new studio facility

Given a reputation for producing award winning products and with a majority of employees being keen musicians, setting up a recording facility in the new headquarters in Cambridge, MA was a serious endeavour.  To support its purpose as both a testing facility and as a not-for-profit recording and mastering studio, careful equipment choice was paramount.   That task fell to iZotope’s Chief Engineer and Education Director, Jonathan Wyner and renowned acoustician, Francis Manzella.  Critical components in the listening chain are the mic pres and the A/D and D/A converters. The final choice was Merging’s Horus Networked Converters partnered with PMC monitors, Avid S3 EUCON Controllers with an IHSE Draco Tera KVM Matrix, Dangerous Audio compressors and Grace Monitor Controllers.
