McDSP releases E670, Moo Q & FRG-EEE equalizer Rack Extensions

McDSP Equalizer Collection

McDSP has announced the release of Equalizer Collection, three new equalizers for Reason Rack Extensions.

Choose from three uniquely and meticulously hand-crafted equalizers to add that warmth and presence that your music has been waiting for.

Offered at just $49 a piece, there is the E670, Moo Q, and FRG-EEE, or purchase them all for just $119, in the Equalizer Collection bundle.

McDSP Equalizer Collection features

  • The E670 Rack Extension plug-in is a three-band equalizer with a flexible design and vintage tone. An excellent companion product to the C670 compressor. The E670, like the C670 compressor, is ideal for master buss tracks and instrument groups. Gentle equalization curves impart just the right amount of tone tweak. Vintage output staging colors tracks nicely, without muddying up your mix. Real-time control smoothing gives it an analog gear feel. And it sounds awesome.
  • The Moo Q Rack Extension plug-in is a software emulation of modern tube-based equalizers. The Moo Q goes with audio tracks like milk goes with cookies. Get some Moo in your music with the Moo Q equalizer. Fatten up your tracks with the Moo Q Rack Extension equalizer plug-in. The Moo Q smooth equalization curves will bring out the sonic subtleties you’re looking for in a moo-sical three-band configuration. Bring on the bass. Milk the mid-range. Shine up that top end. And there’s no cow tipping here – you can’t make the Moo Q sound bad, because it’s that good.
  • The FRG-EEE Rack Extension plug-in is a modern four-band equalizer consisting of low and high shelving EQ wrapped around two parametric bands. The FRG-EEE equalizer (aka ‘froggy’) packs a punch at the low and high end using a shelving EQ technique we call frequency resonant gain (FRG). This approach gives the FRG-EEE a little extra near the selected shelving frequency for, well, a little extra. The two parametric bands have a reasonably tight (but musical) Q, and wide frequency ranges.

The Equalizer Collection is available from the Propellerhead Shop for 99 EUR. Individual EQ plugins are 39 EUR each.

Avid has announced continued momentum in the live sound market with an expanded AAX live sound plug-in platform for the Avid S3L system.

Avid S3L
Avid S3L users can now choose from a wide range of plug-ins from Avid as well as some of the world’s most respected developers including Crane Song, McDSP, and Sonnox.

To meet the growing demand for more powerful, flexible processing, Avid S3L drives AAX plug-ins directly on an HDX-powered processing engine. It delivers the tightest integration and lowest latency of any live plug-in system, without the expense and complexity of outboard solutions. By supporting industry-standard Pro Tools® plug-ins, Avid live systems enable engineers to select the best plug-ins to suit their needs.

“With its unique capabilities and growing plug-in platform, Avid S3L is quickly becoming the console of choice for users requiring a compact, no-compromise system that can meet the toughest challenges,” said Sheldon Radford, director of product management, live systems and consoles at Avid. “Avid S3L gives live sound professionals the greatest flexibility to choose the right plug-in for the job. The plug-ins appear within the VENUE software and are fully integrated within the session file and snapshots. This provides the best possible user experience without the need for additional hardware or management.”

“Partnering with Avid helps ensure that we stay at the forefront of industry innovation when it comes to delivering high-performance plug-ins for the live sound industry,” said Colin McDowell, CEO/CTO at McDSP. “Together, AAX and VENUE offer live sound professionals the perfect integrated processing solution, so we’re delighted to be able to bring our range of plug-ins, including our 6030 Ultimate Compressor, to the Avid S3L system.”

The release of the free VENUE 4.1.3 software update provides support for the latest qualified plug-ins, with Avid continually qualifying additional AAX live sound plug-ins. As part of the update, current and new S3L customers can also download additional free AAX plug-ins for their system through their Avid customer account.

Avid S3L will be on show in the Avid stand G40A in Hall 8.0 at Musikmesse / Prolight + Sound, from 12-15 March 2014.

McDSP releases 6020 Ultimate EQ, SPC2000 & AE400 Active EQ + Everything Pack

McDSP has announced the release of three new plug-ins: the 6020 Ultimate EQ, the SPC Serial/Parallel Compressor and the AE400 Active EQ for the Pro Tools AAX Native and AAX DSP formats.

6020 Ultimate EQ – Equalization for Any Situation

McDSP 6020 Ultimate EQ
The 6020 Ultimate EQ is a collection of ten equalizer models inspired from classic, rare, and modern equalizers over the last four decades.

Using the popular module format and leveraging McDSP’s 15+ years of audio plug-in development, the 6020 modules offer a range of EQ configurations designed to compliment the compressor modules found in the 6030 Ultimate Compressor. Whatever your style, the 6020 has a custom made equalizer just right for any application.

SPC2000 – Powerful Multi-Stage Compression

McDSP SPC202
Each compression in the SPC2000 uses the award winning McDSP CompressorBank algorithms and controls giving the user complete control of dynamic compression.

The SPC2000 Serial / Parallel Compressor takes the power and flexibility of the now classic CompressorBank plug-in by McDSP, and offers two, three, and four band configurations with serial and parallel routing combinations unlike any dynamic processor. Couple this routing capability with the ability to emulate any other compressor, and its clear the SPC2000 is a serious audio tool.

AE400 Active EQ – Flexible Dynamic Equalization

McDSP AE400 Active EQ
The AE400 is an advanced active equalizer suitable for music production, post production, and live sound.

The AE400 is made up of four bands of fixed and active equalization. Each band is completely overlapping with all other bands and has its own Q (bandwidth), fixed gain, and active gain controls. A key filter for each band allows the active gain response to be as selective or broad as needed, based on the Q (bandwidth) control. Each band can use the input signal or selected side chain signal to trigger the active EQ response. For complex material, or subtle audio touch ups, the AE400 can get the job done.

The 6020 Ultimate EQ is available to purchase for $199 USD (Native)/$299 USD (HD), SPC2000 is $149 USD (Native)/$249 USD (HD), AE400 Active EQ costs $199 USD (Native)/$299 USD (HD).

McDSP Everything Pack

McDSP has also launched the Everything Pack, a bundle of all McDSP plug-ins.

For those who need everything, the McDSP Everything Pack is the ticket. The McDSP Everything Pack bundle includes EVERY plug-in from the Emerald, Classic and Retro Pack bundles, and the latest three new plug-ins from McDSP.

Equalizers, compressors, virtual tape machines, multi-band dynamic processors, reverbs, de-essers, noise filters, ‘futz’ tools, and the new 6020 Ultimate EQ, AE400 Active EQ, and SPC2000 Serial / Parallel compressor are all included.

The Everything Pack costs $1,995 USD (Native) / $3,295 USD (HD).
