Software 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 together to recreate a traditional crossover system.

Lifesaver and timesaver
FabFilter Pro-MB introduces a unique Dynamic Phase processing mode. It has virtually the same frequency response as traditional multiband processing, but doesn't introduce latency or pre-ringing, and only introduces minor phase changes when the gain actually changes. Of course, we have also included an excellent Linear Phase mode and a traditional Minimum Phase mode.

The powerful combination of high quality processing, optimized workflow using the interactive multiband display and all the expert features you need, makes Pro-MB both a lifesaver and timesaver!

FabFilter goodies
Of course, you also get all the usual FabFilter goodies: perfectly tuned knobs, MIDI Learn, Smart Parameter Interpolation for smooth parameter transitions, an excellent help file with interactive help hints, SSE optimization and much more!


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
  • 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
  • Stereo and mono plug-ins available
  • Supports common Pro Tools hardware control surfaces
  • MIDI Learn
  • Undo/redo and A/B comparison
  • Smart Parameter Interpolation
  • Sample-accurate automation of all parameters
  • Extensive help file with interactive help hints
  • Available in VST, VST3, Audio Units, AAX Native and AudioSuite formats (all both 64-bit and 32-bit), as well as RTAS (32-bit only)

I only own one plug by fabfilter, pro q, and it's amazing. I can only imagine how intuitive this is going to be.

It looks great, but it'd have to go a LONG way to beat McDSP's ML4000, in my book.

Looks amazing. Just amazing. Ridiculously amazing.

I love the idea of being able to select different side chain sources for the bands. There are some seriously powerful and creative options that are now possible with that.

Dan should set up his own tutorial company. I was hoping for something else from Fabfilter tbh. Will be handy for some Mastering but refuse to use multi during mixing. I would like to see Fabfilter increase their older plugin oversampling levels.

Looks great (as you would expect from FF).

I wonder if this is aimed at being an improvement over Pro-C when used in single band mode ??

It sounds fantastic in single band mode. Transparent and strong which is a rare combo. + It has more features than Pro-C even in Single band mode but it doesn't replace Pro-C.

Thanks, very interesting.
That sounds like the opinion of someone with first hand experience

Very transparent, even at ridiculous gain reduction settings.
