McDSP is offering Classic Pack (Mac/Win $1,395), a bundle with four of its Pro Tools TDM (RTAS/AudioSuite) plug-ins: Analog Channel, CompressorBank, FilterBank, and MC2000. According to McDSP, Analog Channel reproduces the sounds of high-end analog tape machines, analog tape, and analog amplifiers. CompressorBank offers multiple peak detection circuits, pre-filtering, static/dynamic EQ, and compression curve modeling.
FilterBank can emulate tube or solid-state EQs and offers Peak, Slope, and Dip controls as well as variable Q modes. The MC2000 is a multi-band compressor plug-In designed to emulate the sounds of vintage and modern compressors in 2-, 3-, and 4- band configurations.
In addition to the four plug-ins, the McDSP Classic Pack also includes a 194-page printed manual and a pre-programmed McDSP Green iLok. The McDSP Classic Pack is ready to plug and play right out of the box.
Users who already own two of the four Classic Pack plug-ins can get the remaining two products for $695. Users owning three of the four plug-ins in the McDSP Classic Pack can get the remaining one for $295.
