FabFilter is proud to announce availability of FabFilter Pro-MB, a brand-new multiband compression/expansion plug-in introducing unique workflow and signal processing advancements. Featuring free placement of bands anywhere in the spectrum and a newly developed Dynamic Phase processing mode, FabFilter Pro-MB stands out from the plug-in crowd by combining exceptional sound quality with a new way of thinking about multiband dynamics.
Key features:

  • Up to six processing bands, freely placeable anywhere in the spectrum
  • Bands can be easily snapped together to form a conventional crossover system
  • Unique Dynamic Phase processing mode featuring zero latency, no static phase changes and no pre- ringing artifacts
  • Excellent Linear Phase processing mode, eliminating audible artifacts when quickly changing crossover frequencies
  • Minimum Phase processing mode
  • Handles any form of dynamics processing, from highly transparent compression, limiting and expansion to pumping upward compression and punchy gating
  • Fully customizable per band: threshold, range, attack, release, output gain, ratio, variable knee, lookahead (up to 20 ms), variable stereo linking, mid- or side-only processing, external side chain input, triggering on a separate frequency range
  • Steepness of each crossover slope can be freely adjusted between 6 dB/oct and 48 dB/oct
  • Intelligent, highly program- and frequency-dependent attack and release curves
  • Unique interactive multiband display, designed for an optimal workflow
  • Global dry/wet mix from 0% to 200% to easily scale the total effect of the plug-in
  • High-quality audio processing algorithms with 64-bit internal processing where needed
  • Up to four times linear-phase oversampling
  • Accurate and smooth real-time frequency analyzer with pre- and post-processing options and ‘freeze’ feature
  • Precise output metering
  • GPU-powered graphics acceleration
  • Double-click text entry of parameter values
  • Stereo and mono plug-ins available
  • Supports common Pro Tools hardware control surfaces, such as Avid ICON D-Control and D-Command
  • All the usual features you’ve come to expect from FabFilter: perfectly fine-tuned knobs and controllers, interactive MIDI Learn, undo/redo and A/B switch, Smart Parameter Interpolation for smooth parameter transitions, an extensive help file with interactive help hints, sample-accurate automation, advanced optimization, and more
