    We have 2 classic sadies and one 24/96 sadie.
    We have to go in surround and I'm testing lot's of speakers at this moment.

    Next week I have to do a surround mastering and I will use the hardware dolby encoder/decoder to make ac3 files.

    But I saw on the internet this seqouia where you have the possibility to use a dolby ac3 plugin.

    I also saw that ted jensen from sterling sound
    find it his favorite editing system.

    I'm in doubt and I like to know if you guys can tell me more about this system and also about this ac3 plugin.

    Thanks already.

    do the following if you haven't already:

    - go to and check out all the infos avaible about sequoia

    because sek'd, which is the original developer of samplitude and sequoia, went bancruptcy a few months ago, then go to

    - http:// and click on "user forum" if you have an installed microsoft outlook express.
    there are many sequoiausers, so just ask your questiuons there.

    btw., sequoia and samplitude are now getting marketed by emagic.

    kind regards.

    I think that a Sequoia section has been added to Glenn's forum, Errol.

    I did get a quick demo of the system at the AES show. It looks highly influenced by Sonic Solutions as far as layout goes. I don't know about the AC3 plug in. I don't see any mention of it on there website. If you're serious about getting a new DAW it's worth checking out.

    Christian Barth has been a big champion of Sequoia on the mastering webboard. He is in Amsterdam. Maybe he would give you a demonstration?

    Thanks Paul,

    I know Christian Barth.
    I have a lot of reasons not to take him seriously.

    I wait till the AES in Munich and after that we have to make a decision.

    I'd say the layout is a lot closer to Samp 2496, although more features with Sequoia.

    I received a " not for resale sequoia"

    Right now I'm doing my first surround job
    with sadie.
    Complicated, but very interesting.

    I must say that I learn a lot, just as in the beginning of mastering stereo.

    After this job I definitely will check this sequoia tool.
