TC Electronic updates LM2 & LM6 Native Plugins for ATSC A/85 Revision 2013 Compliance

TC Electronic LM6

TC Electronic has released version 1.4 of its versatile and highly acclaimed LM2 (stereo) and LM6 (multichannel) Loudness Radar Meter plugins.

With the new release, TC Electronic adds compliance with the recent 2013 revision of the ATSC A/85 broadcast standard that are mandatory for US broadcasters to adhere to.

“The new revision of the ATSC A/85 standard integrates the latest revision of the international ITU BS.1770-3 standard, which is of great importance in the efforts to make audio loudness more transparent even across national borders,” says Thomas Lund, CTO for Broadcast & Production at TC Electronic. “So it was a high priority for us to make our loudness meters compliant with this new development as we constantly work towards making audio experiences better no matter where you happen to be located.”

Apart from the ATSC A/85 2013 compliance, v. 1.4 also adds improved support for Pro Tools 11. “Measuring loudness becomes increasingly important, and every day more and more producers realize that they will benefit greatly from measuring the audio loudness of their projects,” says Thomas Valter, VP of Business Management at TC Electronic. “Therefore, it is important for us to always keep up with the latest DAW developments, making sure that we support first-movers, who port quickly to the latest incarnations of Pro Tools, Logic, Nuendo, Media Composer, etc.”

The free updates for LM2 and LM6 are now available to download.

Rob Papen Explorer 2

Rob Papen has announced full compatibility with Avid Pro Tools 11 and Apple Logic Pro X.

Having already introduced its advanced AAX (Avid Audio Xtension) plug-in format with Pro Tools 10 to offer better workflows and sound parity when sharing sessions between DSP-accelerated and DSP-based Pro Tools systems, Avid has now turbocharged AAX with 64-bit performance with the recent release of Pro Tools 11. Of course, Rob Papen prides itself at always being at the forefront of any such developments and now all Rob Papen products are available as 64-bit AAX plug-ins ready to run within Pro Tools 11 on both Mac or PC platforms. Existing Rob Papen product owners should simply login to their Rob Papen user account and download the latest installers for their products… for free!

Since Rob Papen made the jump to 64-bit compatibility early on to take advantage of improved performance via suitable host applications accessing increased RAM, its current products are already compatible with Apple’s recently-released 64-bit architecture-based Logic Pro X. As such, any Rob Papen users who are still running 32-bit versions of their products and planning to migrate to Logic Pro X should simply login to their Rob Papen user account and download the latest 64-bit Mac installers for whatever products they own to ensure continued compatibility — again, for free!

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).
