program that allows Pro Tools users to preview in real time 5.1 mixes
created by the Pro Tools software and the SmartPan Pro plugin, then encode
and decode the mix to create a six-channel surround master.
Pro will be available in the third quarter for $995 for the Dolby Digital
version and $1,995 for the DTS version.
