Master X3 from tc electronic is a virtual incarnation of the company's hardware Finalizer, a mastering processor for professional audio. Featuring multi-band processing with expansion, compression and limiting separately for each band, the TDM plug-in integrates the multiple phases of mastering into a single, easy to use interface.
The interface makes the critical mastering process faster and easier with the overall processing characteristics controlled via Target Curves. The curves provide a global processing style for all bands in all modules. The interaction between the bands can be further fine tuned by applying Target Factors, which determine the frequency focus of each processing module.
High quality uncorrelated dithering is also included, and "Soft Clipping" delivers an "analog" sound whenever desired. The plug-in requires a Pro Tools HD system.
