- FabFilter Pro-MB is a powerful multiband compressor/expander plug-in with all the expert features you need, combining exceptional sound quality with great interface workflow.
Summary Multiband compression and expansion are powerful tools, but notoriously difficult to set up and control. Enter FabFilter Pro-MB: making multiband dynamics processing intuitive yet powerful at the same time. FabFilter Pro-MB introduces a unique Dynamic Phase processing mode. It has virtually the same frequency response as traditional multiband processing, but doesn't introduce latency or pre-ringing, and only introduces minor phase changes when the gain actually changes. Of course, we have also included an excellent Linear Phase mode and a traditional Minimum Phase mode. The powerful combination of high quality processing, optimized workflow using the interactive multiband display and all the expert features you need, makes Pro-MB both a lifesaver and timesaver! Features Up to six processing bands, freely placed anywhere in the spectrum Bands can be easily snapped together to form a traditional crossover system Unique Dynamic Phase processing mode featuring zero latency, no static phase changes and no pre-ringing artifacts Excellent Linear Phase processing mode, eliminating audible artifacts when quickly changing crossover frequencies Minimum Phase processing mode Handles any form of dynamics processing, from highly transparent compression, limiting and expansion to pumping upward compression and punchy gating Fully customizable per band: threshold, range, attack, release, output gain, ratio, variable knee, lookahead (up to 20 ms), variable stereo linking, mid- or side-only processing, external side chain input, triggering on a separate frequency range Steepness of each crossover slope can be freely adjusted between 6 dB/oct and 48 dB/oct Intelligent, highly program- and frequency-dependent attack and release curves Global dry/wet mix from 0% to 200% to easily scale the total effect of the plug-in Unique interactive multiband display, designed for an optimal workflow Accurate and smooth real-time frequency analyzer with pre- and post-processing options and 'freeze' feature High-quality audio processing algorithms with 64-bit internal processing where needed Up to four times linear-phase oversampling Band solo/mute and bypass options Precise output metering GPU-powered graphics acceleration Double-click text entry of parameter values Stereo and mono plug-ins available Supports common Pro Tools hardware control surfaces MIDI Learn Undo/redo and A/B comparison Smart Parameter Interpolation Sample-accurate automation of all parameters Extensive help file with interactive help hints Requirements Windows 32-bit: Windows 8, 7, Vista or XP 64-bit: Windows 8, 7 or Vista(x64) VST 2/3 host or Pro Tools Mac OS X 32-bit: OS X 10.5 or higher 64-bit: OS X 10.6 or higher AU or VST 2/3 host or Pro Tools Intel processor
