Metric Halo Multiband Dynamics - for Mac AU, VST, AAXNative & DSP (Pro Tools 10, 11 & 12) Windows VST, AAXNative & DSP (Pro Tools 10, 11 & 12) - - Sometimes the best EQ is a compressorMultiband Dynamics is a plug-in that allows you to add clarity, warmth punch to your mix. It shapes timbral quality of your audio by running it through a three-band crossover, providing independent compression in each frequency range before summing the result through a limiter. Without compression, you can broadly shape the timbre of your tracks, if you need dynamic range control dynamic EQ, simply enable the compressor for the band.Multiband Dynamics is an essential tool for mixing mastering, but can also be used for sound design other audio processing.Key Features- Low, mid, & high band compressors with selectable auto gain- Comprehensive master-slave linking between bands- Post-compressor limiter for level maximization- Dynamic Transfer function to show the overall response- SpectraFooâ„¢ spectrum analysis built-in- Scalable gain reduction meters- Adjustable UI size- MH Preset Manager - Provides cross-platform presetsGrammy Award-Winning Engineer Gary Noble found that â€œThe Multiband Dynamics processor recently helped me rescue part of a song,â€ he shared. â€œA break included a bass synth that was completely different from the bass texture used in the rest of the song. Raw, the new bass just didnâ€™t fit in the song. But with a few moments the Multiband Dynamics processor, I was able to lock it right in.â€Grammy Award-Winning Engineer Tony Maserati adds, â€œMetric Halo has a long history of solid performance that uses surprisingly little DSP resources. A testament to Metric Haloâ€™s stability is the fact that Iâ€™m now using Metric Haloâ€™s Multiband Dynamics plug-in on my mix bus. Thatâ€™s unusual for me, I wouldnâ€™t do that if I wasnâ€™t completely confident.â€Dynamics in modern recordings is always a challenge, Grammy Award-Winning Producer Engineer Julian King has found that â€œUnfortunately dynamic range in commercial recordings is almost non-existent there seems to be an expectation for songs to be nearly full scale from start to finish,â€ continued King. â€œMy job is to create the impression of dynamics in the mix even if they arenâ€™t really there, as there has to be some lift as you transition from, say, a verse to a chorus. My mentor Lynn Peterzell called this â€œillusionary dynamics.â€ The Metric Halo Multiband Dynamics does a great job of keeping things nice full musical while still delivering a modern, full-scale output. It does its job, but you donâ€™t sense that it is beating up the music.â€Try it today â€” Youâ€™ll love it!Is MH Multiband Dynamics for you?Mix Engineers- Rely on the best sound quality available with Metric Haloâ€™s award-winning DSP.- Add clarity, warmth punch to your mix.- Make room in the mix for tracks that are getting stomped.- Get inspired!Mastering Engineers- Maximize level without losing apparent dynamics.- Achieve broad equalization with high precision.Sound Designers- Mangle sounds as desired.Tech SpecsSystem Requirements- Mac: Mac OS X 10.6.8 newer.
