  • SurCode for Dolby E Decoder decodes Dolby E files back to discrete PCM in a convenient software plug-in format. SurCode for Dolby E Decoder is the perfect way to integrate Dolby E into existing workflows on different audio workstations, in different studios and in various formats. While the Pro Tools plug-in allows integrated access to Dolby E files, the AudioTools AWE plug–in has been designed to offload and automate workflow from the DAW. Both plug-ins eliminate the need for any cabling and the synchronization issues that come with using another piece of external gear, resulting in a sample accurate, fully time-aligned set of files for distribution or further editing. Unlike other encoding formats, Dolby E has been designed as the perfect format for multiple encode/decode cycles.

    SurCode for Dolby E and Pro Tools:

    Playing back your files through an external decoder just to capture your audio back to a file is simply inefficient and time consuming. The Dolby E decoder plug-in appears in the insert chain on your channel strip with all other RTAS plug-ins and will decode your audio in sync with the Pro Tools timeline. It’s as simple as a single click to drop SurCode for Dolby E Decoder into your Pro Tools mixer and select a Dolby E file.

    SurCode for Dolby E and AudioTools AWE:

    As a complete standalone solution, AudioTools AWE offers unparalleled flexibility with a streamlined workflow by decoding one, hundreds, or even thousands of Dolby E files in one pass. Automate SurCode for Dolby E Decoder by using AWE’s “Hot Folder” feature. A Dolby E file dropped in your hot folder will instantly be decoded, processed through your choice of AWE or VST or external processors, and could even be re-encoded to Dolby Digital — all automatically. A full 14 days evaluation copy of AudioTools AWE is included with every license of SurCode for Dolby E Decoder.
