McDowell Signal Processing Releases The ML4000 Mastering Plug-In
McDowell Signal Processing has released the ML4000, a high-resolution limiter and multi-band dynamics processor designed for music, mastering, post, and live sound. The ML4000 is two separate plug-ins: the ML1 â€“ mastering limiter and the ML4 â€“ multi-band Gate, Expander, and Compressor. The ML4000 1.0 is available on both Mac OSX and Windows XP in the TDM, AudioSuite, and RTAS formats.
The ML4000 is a high-resolution brick-wall look-ahead limiter and multi-band dynamics processor. The ML1 mastering limiter uses a flexible brick wall look-ahead design coupled with multiple stages of limiting for superior peak processing. The unique Knee and Mode controls allow the ML1 to handle any kind of material with a variety of responses ranging from transparent to aggressive.
The ML4 multi-band dynamics processor includes a 4-band Gate, Expander (upwards or downwards), and Compressor fed into the same limiter algorithm found in the ML1. Each bandâ€™s Gate, Expander, and Compressor can be configured separately or linked together. Steep 24 dB/Oct crossover filters minimize signal leakage into adjacent bands. Multiple real-time metering options in each band allow quick visualization of all signal dynamics.
The McDSP ML4000 price is $495. The ML4000 is also available in the Emerald Pack HD $2595 and Emerald Pack Native $1395 plug-in bundles. Existing Emerald Pack customers can purchase the ML4000 as an upgrade for $295. More information on the McDSP ML4000.
