McDSP V5

McDSP is now shipping McDSP v5, the latest version of its effect plugins.

The McDSP v5 release includes Audio Unit (AU) support, the 6030 Ultimate Compressor and Classic Pack Next Generation. The McDSP v5 release will initially support Intel-Mac systems only running Mac OS 10.5.x (Leopard) and 10.6.x (Snow Leopard). A PowerPC version will be available in late December 2010, followed by a Windows version in Q1 of 2011. The PowerPC version will not support the Audio Unit (AU) plug-in format – it will be a Pro Tools only version.

McDSP will continue to offer two main product lines – HD and Native. HD versions support TDM, RTAS, Audiosuite and Audio Unit (AU) plug-in formats. Native versions support RTAS, Audiosuite, and Audio Unit (AU) plug-in formats.

The all-new 6030 Ultimate Compressor turns up the notch of dynamic range processing once again. Building on the entire award winning McDSP compression algorithm code base, the 6030 Ultimate Compressor adds new sonic capabilities, stunning new user interfaces and a collection of new designs mixed with unique twists on vintage emulations.

The legendary McDSP Classic Pack plug-in lineup has been updated in the v5 release. The Classic Pack Next Generation plug-ins include all new user interfaces and new features. Support for the legacy versions of Classic Pack plug-ins is also included for Pro Tools customers.

McDSP Audio Unit (AU) support is provided across its entire product line, excluding Chrome Tone, Synthesizer One, and Project Studio. These products will continue to be available as Pro Tools only products.

Existing McDSP customers can upgrade each McDSP plug-in (HD or Native) to v5 for $29 USD per plug-in for a limited time. The 6030 Ultimate Compressor is available individually for $449 USD HD or $249 USD Native, or as an upgrade to Emerald Pack v5 for $349 USD HD or $299 USD Native for Emerald Pack v4 customers.

  • Provided more reliable behavior in the rename view after relaunch.

  • Added protections so that playback and recording recover more gracefully when stopped unexpectedly.
  • Disallowed certain characters in tape names which were problematic for audio files.

McDSP now shipping Retro Pack

McDSP Retro Pack Bundle

McDSP has released the Retro Pack, a bundle including the 4020 Retro EQ, 4030 Retro Compressor and 4040 Retro Limiter.

All Retro plug-ins use a new output stage topology to eliminate digital clipping at any output level and produce a smoother distortion characteristic. This feature is in addition to the analog saturation modeling that has made McDSP famous over the last decade.
Retro plug-ins are a line of ‘classics’ that can live up to their own name without emulating something else.

Retro Pack features

  • 4020 Retro EQ is a four-band EQ and complimentary filter set. The HF and LF bands are shelving EQ, with two additional parametric EQs at the HMF and LMF bands.
  • 4030 Retro Compressor is a new dynamic range control topology coupled with a wet/dry mix control to balance compressed and uncompressed signals. An active attack and release design allows aggressive compression settings with minimal artifact generation.
  • 4040 Retro Limiter combines a look-ahead brick wall limiter function with several subjective treatments to make the limiting action subtle, and yet vintage.

The Retro Pack HD Bundle (TDM/RTAS/Audiosuite) is available now for $995 USD; the Native Bundle (RTAS/Audiosuite) costs $495 USD.
