Presented by Simon Pegg, Research and Development Director, Eyeheight, Ltd.
KARMAudioAU for Final Cut is an OS X native Audio Unit plug-in compatible with Final Cut, Soundtrack Pro and any application which supports Audio Units. KARMAudioAU analyzes stereo and multi-channel audio content using ITU-R BS.1770 (optionally including the EBU R128 relative gate) and then applies a global gain value to bring the audio to the the target loudness. By applying a global the target loudness is matched whilst maintaining the full dynamic range of the original source audio. KARMAudioAU for Final Cut also performs true peak limiting based on ITU-R BS.1770 true peak estimation and a proprietary true peak control algorithm to ensure the final output does not exceed peak-program level limits.
With KARMAudioAU Final Cut users can ensure loudness and peak-program level compliance in seconds and in combination with complianceSuiteFC deliver fully compliant video and audio content direct from the Final Cut time-line to tape or playout server.
