FabFilter releases FabFilter Pro-MB multiband dynamics plug-in

FabFilter has announced the availability of FabFilter Pro-MB, a brand-new multiband compression/expansion plug-in introducing unique workflow and signal processing advancements.

Featuring free placement of bands anywhere in the spectrum and a newly developed Dynamic Phase processing mode, FabFilter Pro-MB stands out from the plug-in crowd by combining exceptional sound quality with a new way of thinking about multiband dynamics.

FabFilter Pro-MB

A different approach
When working with multiband dynamics, you often focus on one or two specific frequency areas. Instead of conventionally splitting the entire spectrum with crossovers, FabFilter Pro-MB enables you to directly target these areas, simply by creating bands at any frequency range you’re interested in. Think bands, not crossovers! The interface clearly shows that the rest of the spectrum stays untouched. When desired, bands can easily be snapped together to form a traditional crossover system.

Rethinking multiband processing
To achieve truly transparent multi-band processing, FabFilter Pro-MB features an entirely new processing mode: Dynamic Phase. Exclusively developed for Pro-MB, it closely matches the frequency response of conventional multiband processing and results in a flat phase response when no gain changes are applied, but without introducing latency and pre-ringing effects (like Linear Phase processing), or static phase distortion (like Minimum Phase processing). Minor, typically inaudible phase changes are introduced only when the gain of a band is modified. Of course, FabFilter Pro-MB also offers outstanding Linear Phase and conventional Minimum Phase processing modes.

Intelligent, powerful and versatile
Up to six bands can be created, each offering a choice of downward or upward compression or expansion, together with a full set of dynamics controls, from range, ratio and knee control to lookahead and variable stereo linking. Intelligent, highly frequency- and program-dependent algorithms ensure excellent results with all kinds of program material. In Expert mode, more advanced features become available: mid- or side-only processing, external side chain triggering, including the option to trigger on a different, freely configurable frequency range.

Designed for you
Unlike traditional multiband compressors, which can be laborious to set up and control, FabFilter Pro-MB’s large interface is streamlined and uncluttered. Creating, snapping and selecting bands is a breeze, as is adjusting and tweaking multiple selected bands. At any time, the most important settings for all bands are visible at a glance, together with a real-time dynamic gain change curve and spectrum analyzer. Intelligent audio processing combined with optimal interface workflow makes FabFilter Pro-MB an absolute timesaver and a joy to use.

FabFilter Pro-MB features

  • Up to six processing bands, freely placeable anywhere in the spectrum.
  • Bands can be easily snapped together to form a conventional crossover system.
  • Unique Dynamic Phase processing mode featuring zero latency, no static phase changes and no preringing artifacts.
  • Excellent Linear Phase processing mode, eliminating audible artifacts when quickly changing crossover frequencies.
  • Minimum Phase processing mode.

FabFilter AAX 64-nit

FabFilter has announced that it has updated all plug-ins to add 64-bit AAX support, enabling all FabFilter users to start working with Pro Tools 11 immediately after its release.

The update also includes various bug fixes and small improvements that benefit all plug-in formats.

Changes in FabFilter plug-ins

  • All plug-ins are now available as 64-bit AAX plug-ins for Pro Tools 11. The 32-bit AAX plug-ins have also been updated to the latest AAX v2 format and require Pro Tools 10.3.5 or later. RTAS plug-ins for earlier versions of Pro Tools are of course also included.
  • Changing parameters via the mouse wheel will now correctly record automation and generate proper undo states. In addition, you can now also control switches with the mouse wheel.
  • In the presets menu, changed the Options > View Program/Bank Numbers command to Enable MIDI Program Changes, which now actually enables/disables MIDI program changes as well as showing the program/band number for presets. This ensures that the plug-in only responds to MIDI program changes when this is desired.
  • Fixed a bug in FabFilter Pro-Q that could cause mouse wheel changes for multiple selected bands to affect one band only.
  • Fixed a bug in the VST3 plug-ins with a side chain that caused sidechain audition not to work if the main input was silent.
  • In FabFilter Twin 2, changed displayed delay sync parameter values in the interface to correctly describe the sync duration.
  • Fixed a crash in FabFilter Timeless 2 that could occur when clicking the Dry Enabled button or Dry Knob after having resized the interface.
  • Fixed a crash in FabFilter Twin 2 that could occur when dragging a modulation source over the Main EG component button.
  • In FabFilter Saturn, fixed a bug in the display that could cause the level sliders to be at the wrong position after opening a saved project in Wavelab 7.
  • Fixed a bug that could prevent sample-accurate processing of recorded MIDI control change messages.
  • Fixed a bug on OS X that could cause help hints to pop up even if the mouse cursor was outside the plug-in interface.
  • Fixed a bug on Windows that could cause a system sound to be played when pressing Enter after typing a parameter value directly.
  • Various small bug fixes and improvements.

The updated plug-ins are fully compatible with previous versions, and free for existing FabFilter customers. The latest versions and 30-day trials are available for download now.

FabFilter updates all plug-ins with graphics acceleration and more

FabFilter

FabFilter has updated all FabFilter plug-ins to add GPU-powered graphics acceleration.

In addition, FabFilter Twin 2, Timeless 2 and Volcano 2 now feature the collapsible modulation section that was first introduced in FabFilter Saturn. All plug-ins have also received bug fixes and various other improvements.

Changes in FabFilter plugins

  • All plug-ins now contain the GPU-powered graphics acceleration introduced in FabFilter Pro-DS, ensuring ultra-smooth animation while leaving the main CPU free to do audio processing.
  • FabFilter Twin 2, Timeless 2 and Volcano 2 have a new Modulation button to easily show and hide the modulation section. By default, the modulation section is hidden to make the plug-in less intimidating at first, but you can easily look ‘under the hood’ when you want to tweak a preset or design your own.
  • FabFilter Twin 2 displays a new keyboard section in the interface when the modulation section is hidden. The component display at the top of the interface contains a new Main EG component button, letting you easily tweak EG parameters when browsing presets.
  • When multiple bands are selected in FabFilter Pro-Q, the Frequency, Gain and Q knobs will now let you change parameters of the selected bands while preserving their relative differences. Double-clicking a knob still lets you set all bands to the same value.
  • Updated all VST 3 plug-ins to support new features in VST 3.5, such as a host-provided right-click menu for each parameter in the interface. Steinberg’s CMC-AI controller is now also supported.
  • Added mouse wheel support to buttons with pop-up menus, such as the distortion style button in FabFilter Saturn.
  • Added Options > Open Other Preset option to the presets menu, making it easy to open a preset that’s not in the regular presets folder.
  • FabFilter Twin 2 and Timeless 2 now remember which section in the component display is expanded in Wide mode.
  • Fixed compatibility issues with Adobe Premiere on Windows and OS X.
  • Fixed a bug in the mono AudioSuite plug-ins that caused the Whole File option at the bottom to be disabled.
  • The Mac OS X version now requires OS X 10.5 and an Intel processor. Previous versions are still available for download if you need OS X 10.4 or PowerPC support.

The updates are free for existing FabFilter customers. Updates and 30-day trial versions are available for download now at www.fabfilter.com/download.
