AAX format released!
Posted on Sunday, January 13, 2013
We are pleased to announce the release of our entire plug-in lineup in Avid’s AAX format for both Mac and Windows platforms. All plug-ins now support AAX Native operation while TrackPlug, MultiDynamics and FinalPlug also run on HDX DSP cards. We’ve spent significant time optimizing the algorithms for operation on HDX and we’ve created reduced feature set configurations in order to increase DSP instance counts.
Our plug-in lineup includes:
TrackPlug – The ultimate channel strip plug-in
FinalPlug – Professional peak limiter and volume maximizer
MultiDynamics – Powerful multi-band dynamics control
MasterVerb – Silky smooth multi-algorithm reverb
Panorama – 3D spatial and environmental acoustics processor
MASTER RESTORATION SUITE
MR Noise – Stellar sounding broadband noise reduction
MR Click – Click and crackle filter for vinyl or digital sources
MR Hum – Precise hum and buzz removal
MR Gate – Expander/gate for quick and simple background attenuation
Master Restoration – The ultimate all-in-one cleanup tool
Dialog – post-production for the spoken voice
Tube Saturator – exquisitely accurate tube amp model
AAX pricing and upgrades
TrackPlug, MultiDynamics, and FinalPlug are available in AAX DSP format (which can also run in Native mode), for $249 each. The upgrade from AAX Native to AAX DSP is $100 per plug-in, or $250 for all three. Therefore, existing Native owners can upgrade a single plug-in to AAX DSP format for $114.90 (10% AAX Native upgrade plus $100 for AAX DSP upgrade). Existing Power Suite owners can upgrade to AAX Native for $49.90, or upgrade to AAX DSP for $299.

AAX DSP configurations
TrackPlug AAX DSP comes in three configurations. The full configuration provides all features (realtime spectrum analysis is only available when running AAX Native format). The E7GC configuration provides a 7-band EQ, gate and compressor. The E7C configuration provides a 7-band EQ and compressor. At 48 kHz sampling rate, you can run 3 stereo instances of the full configuration per DSP chip, 6 stereo instances of E7GC, and 7 stereo instances of E7C.
MultiDynamics AAX DSP also has three configurations: the full 6-band configuration, plus a 3-band and 4-band configuration. The reduced band configurations let you squeeze more processing from your DSP when you don’t need the flexibility of so many bands. At 48 Khz, you can run 3 stereo instances of the full configuration or 4-band configuration per DSP chip, and 4 stereo instances of the 3-band configuration.
FinalPlug AAX DSP comes with two configurations. The full configuration provides all features, while the Limit configuration provides just the limiter section. At 48 kHz, you can run 4 stereo instances of the full configuration, and 17 stereo instances of the Limit only configuration.
