McDSP has begun shipping boxed copy of the ML4000 plug-in.
The ML4000 is a high-resolution brick-wall look-ahead limiter and multi-band dynamics processor designed for music, mastering, post, and live sound.
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 band'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 ML4000 retail price is $495 (USD). 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.
