At NAMM 2013 Avid announced their new AAX DSP and AAX Native Pro Series plugins. The plugin series comprises of a new Pro Compressor, Pro Expander and Pro Limiter. The plugins are based on Avid’s System 5 Channel Strip but with more advanced features. According to Avid the plugins offer amazing sound quality with extremely low latency and great metering.
The Pro Compressor and Pro Expander have a so called SMART Mode that breathes life into tracks fast by analysing audio and morph between four detectors, giving compression without distortion or pumping. The Pro Limiter has a clean and transparent sound and offers EBU R128 Loudness metering.
The Pro Series plugins are compatible with AAX DSP and AAX Native Pro Tools 10 Systems. The Pro Compressor and Pro Expander plug-ins are available now for $99 (USD) or € 74. The Pro Limiter will be available soon.
