McDSP M-PI-AC overview

  • 1Description

Analog Channel v6 from McDSP is a pair of plug-ins that emulates the sounds of high-end analog tape machines, analog tape, and analog channel amplifiers. With the experience of modelling analog compressors and filter circuits, both vintage and modern, McDSP has provided a solution for smoothing the digital edge that can sometimes accumulate on digital workstations as track count increases.

One section of the Analog Channel, AC101, acts as a digital pre-amp allowing even excessive amounts of gain without digital distortion. A drive control determines where the audio sits in the saturation/compression region. Attack and release times of the distortion character are adjustable.

The second section, AC202, provides standard tape machine parameters such as bias, playback speed, and IEC1/2 equalization. However, it also provides controls well beyond the limits of analog tape devices, including adjustable low frequency roll off and head bump - independent of playback speed. The user can select from several playback head types, and even control the rate at which tape saturation is disengaged. Modern and vintage tape formulations are available.

The HD plug-ins provide AAX DSP for use with Pro Tools HD, but also includes AAX Native, Audio Units and VST versions for use with other DAWs including Logic, Digital Performer (DP), Cubase, and Ableton Live.

  • Library of presets emulating analog mixing systems
  • Real-time display of saturation curves and calibrations
  • Analog Saturation modeling
  • Double precision processing
  • Ultra low latency
  • Mono and stereo versions
