Description: Multiband compressors and expanders are powerful tools, but generally difficult to set up and control. FabFilter Pro-MB makes multi-lane dynamics processing both intuitive and powerful. With free band placement and a new Dynamic Phase processing mode, FabFilter Pro-MB stands out from the rest of the plug-ins for its combination of exceptional sound quality and a new way of thinking when using multi-way dynamics.
Instead of the usual division of the entire spectrum into crossovers, the Pro-MB allows you to create a new band in the frequency spectrum wherever you want. The interactive multi-line display clearly shows how much of the spectrum is left untouched. And if you like, you can easily butthen the strips together to recreate a traditional crossover system.
FabFilter Pro-MB introduces a unique Dynamic Phase processing mode. It has a similar frequency response to conventional multiband processing, but introduces no delay and introduces only minor phase shifts, and only when the gain is changed. Of course, the plug-in includes a linear-phase mode Linear Phase and a mode with a minimum phase Minimum Phase.
New in FabFilter Pro-MB 1.11 :
Renamed the existing interface size options to Medium and Extra Large, and added a new intermediate Large option that will fit comfortably on 1920×1080 monitors on OS X.
Fixed a bug that caused knobs and sliders to respond incorrectly to subtle mouse movements while dragging on OS X and High DPI displays on Windows.
Fixed display behavior when zoomed in horizontally: display curves and dragging would not work correctly for bands docked at the left or right edges of the frequency scale.
Fixed sidechain filtering control behavior when zoomed in horizontally in the display.
Fixed possibly incorrect gain change reporting for bands that use compression in combination with a Stereo Link setting below 100%.
Fixed a bug when deleting a muted band in Dynamic Phase mode: the mute effect would remain audible after deleting the band.
Various small visual fixes and improvements.
