SAD V2 supports AAX and VST3 on the newest macOS and Windows versions, has a lot of workflow enhancements, supports new formats like Nokia's OZO Audio and has a brand-new export function. Also, a complete MPEG-H workflow to create and export masters is close to ready. It's scheduled for the next update expected right after NAB.
A full new feature list and how to get the upgrade and trial versions are here.
Tom Ammermann, general manager of New Audio Technology and Grammy nominee for 'Best Surround Sound Album' 2018 with Kraftwerk 3D – The Catalog said: "Honestly it was a long journey because we had to change the SAD structure basically being ready for all the new formats in music, film, VR/AR, broadcast and industry applications. Now we started in 360 with the promising new 360 format from NOKIA, OZO Audio. Also, we spend much effort on industry applications like the support of Lawo's LIME (Lawo Immersive Mixing Engine). The next step is finalizing the MPEG-H workflow and export for the SAD. So we're pretty certain, the SAD will keep the market leading tool to create immersive audio in the professional domain."
