The +DSP License for 2d Card from Metric Halo allows you to take advantage of the greatly increased processing power of the 2d Card's DSP, and provides an easy way of inserting plug-ins directly into mixer channels. If the unit is already a +DSP unit, you already have a +DSP license. If a unit doesn't include the +DSP license, you can add the license without having to make any additional physical changes to your hardware.
The +DSP license also includes a variety of additional plug-ins not found in the base unit, including multi-band EQs, compressor, limiter, distortion processors, and many more. With the +DSP license, you also gain access to insert-able graphs which allow you to build your own processors.
The MIO Console version 5 software automatically extends any +DSP license on any attached unit to all units that are 2d expanded and attached to that system. This allows you to use any +DSP plug-in or macro on any box in your system, as long as at least one +DSP licensed box is attached. If you need to store +DSP plug-ins in a permanent states or tend to split your boxes into multiple systems, you will need to independently license each box that needs to use the +DSP license.
