SurCode for Dolby E Encoder from Minnetonka is a fully licensed and certified file-based software plug-in encoder for Dolby E, for use with Pro Tools and VST compliant applications. The plug-in encodes Dolby E files from discrete PCM files, and is the perfect way to integrate Dolby E into existing workflows on different audio workstations, in different studios, and in various formats.
The Dolby E Encoder provides encoding of up to 8 channels of audio, with a variety of user selectable program configurations. These range from 5.1 and stereo, to 4 independent stereo or 8 mono channels. It also includes full input of Dolby E and program metadata, all via a simple user interface.
When used with Pro Tools, the plug-in appears in the AudioSuite menu and will encode audio in sync with the Pro Tools timeline. Encoding is as simple as selecting a file or part of a file, going to the AudioSuite menu and selecting the encoder, entering the required metadata, and hitting encode.
