Spill is the first plug-in to support the powerful new V-PlugIn controller app for iPad/iPhone for super-fast access to tracks and their plug-ins. Spill is immediately available to all owners of a V-Control Pro Bundle license
Neyrinck today introduced a new AAX Native, AAX DSP and AAX AudioSuite plug-in called ‘Spill’ for Pro Tools that makes it fast and easy to adjust channel levels on surround audio and bus tracks, just like the “spill” feature found on high-end digital film consoles. Spill is the first plug-in to support the powerful new V-PlugIn controller app for iPad/iPhone for super-fast access to tracks and their plug-ins. Spill is immediately available to all owners of a V-Control Pro Bundle license. The Spill installer download includes a 7-day free trial license.
Spill AAX Plug-in for Managing Pro Tools Track and Bus Surround Channels
The Spill plug-in can be inserted on any multi-channel Pro Tools track, aux or master, from stereo to 7.1 format. All channels are spilled to individual channel faders in the Spill plug-in window, the V-PlugIn remote control app, and Avid control surfaces. Spill channel faders can be adjusted individually or can be relative grouped for fast and easy adjustment of surround channel groups. Spill fully integrates with Pro Tools plug-in automation modes providing a complete, professional surround mixing solution like that found on high-end film consoles.
The V-PlugIn remote control app for iPad and iPhone supports the Spill plug-in for first-class control. It provides a list of tracks using Spill so a user can just tap the track name and have instant access to channel levels without needing to open a plug-in window on the computer. V-PlugIn operates on any number of iPad or iPhones simultaneously which can connect to the Pro Tools computer using a wired Lightning cable connection or a WiFi connection.

Re-recording mixer Tom Marks, CAS, provided feedback to Paul Neyrinck during development of the plug-in. “Spill is applicable to both mixing and editing workflows but is most valuable during the final mix. In very busy sound effects sequences, you can quickly adjust a specific channel(s) of a pre-dub to clear space for music or to get the sound effects to poke through. When given multi-channel stems for the score, you can bring up the surrounds or lower the center channel. There are also applications on a global level. For example, if you start a mix in a smaller room and move to a large dub stage, you may need to make global adjustments on the surround or LFE levels. Also when doing near-field home video versions, you’ll have to make adjustments to your stems which Spill is perfect for.”
Spill can be downloaded from the Neyrinck website which includes a 7-day free trial. Spill is iLok licensed as part of the V-Control Pro Bundle license. A V-Control Pro Bundle annual license can be purchased for only US$49.99 from the Neyrinck Store. V-PlugIn is available for free on the Apple App Store.
