McDSP announces McDSP v5 is now shipping. The McDSP v5 release includes Audio Unit (AU) support, the 6030 Ultimate Compressor, and Classic Pack Next Generation. The McDSP v5 release will initially support Intel Mac systems only running Mac OS 10.5.x (Leopard) and 10.6.x (Snow Leopard). A PowerPC version will be available in late December 2010, followed by a Windows version in Q1 of 2011. The PowerPC version will not support the Audio Unit (AU) plug-in format—it will be a Pro Tools-only version.
McDSP will continue to offer two main product lines: HD and Native. HD versions support TDM, RTAS, Audiosuite, and Audio Unit (AU) plug-in formats. Native versions support RTAS, Audiosuite, and Audio Unit (AU) plug-in formats.
Existing McDSP customers can upgrade each McDSP plug-in (HD or Native) to v5 for $29 per plug-in for a limited time. Visit the McDSP v5 product page for more information.
