Description

Key features

  • Up to six processing bands, freely placed anywhere in the spectrum
  • Bands can be easily snapped together to form a traditional 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
  • Global dry/wet mix from 0% to 200% to easily scale the total effect of the plug-in
  • Beautiful Retina interface with unique interactive multiband display, designed for an optimal workflow
  • Accurate and smooth real-time frequency analyzer with pre- and post-processing options and 'freeze' feature
  • High-quality audio processing algorithms with 64-bit internal processing where needed
  • Up to four times linear-phase oversampling
  • Band solo/mute and bypass options
  • Precise output metering
  • GPU-powered graphics acceleration
  • Double-click text entry of parameter values

FabFilter Pro-MB

A new approach Instead of conventionally splitting the entire spectrum with crossovers, Pro-MB enables you to directly create a new band at the frequency range you want to work on. Think bands, not crossovers! The interactive multiband display clearly shows that the rest of the spectrum stays untouched. And if desired, you can easily snap bands...

FabFilter releases FabFilter Pro-R reverb plug-in

...and compressors like analog-modelled plugins. Their Pro-Q2 is a clinical EQ, and is an industry leader in that area. Their Pro-MB is the most transparent multiband compressor I've ever heard, and their Pro-C2 is a workhorse and very flexible compressor. Their "sound" is most associated with precision, not with musicality. I would never use the...

...engineer. Serious post work though. Today, in particular, I was on the verge of finally pulling the trigger on FabFilter Pro-MB after avoiding it for a very long time. I've been using various multiband plugins, including Ozone for years (currently on Ozone 8 Advanced) and could never really justify buying Pro-MB. But recently I...
