  • Professional Peak and Loudness Metering

    PPMulatorXL is a cross-platform plug-in meter for digital audio workstations which exactly mimics the look and feel of a professional broadcast Peak Programme Meter (PPM). PPMulatorXL has also included a EBU R.128 compliant loudness metering and a amazingly fast offline metering for audio files in standalone mode.
    By adding this plugin to the master output of your audio editing program, you can record, edit, mix and export your audio within a precisely-calibrated workspace – something which is often impossible to do when working in a non-studio environment.

    PPMulatorXL is designed to closely-follow the ballistics of mono, stereo, mid-side (MS) and surround (5.1) PPM meters (conforming to IEC 268-10/DIN 45406) and has a number of built-in additional features, including various display style options and a highly-useful Peak Logging process which logs all peaks/overloads against the time code in the host application where they occurred.


    Key Features:

    • Customizable and resizable layouts and channel labeling
    • Audio file batch processing (PPMulatorXL only)
    • Automated peak logging with export
    • Mono gain trim to M3 (-3dB) or M6 (-6dB) standards
    • Phase correlation meter & Goniometer
    • Reference tone generator for meter alignment and calibration
    • Multi-channel support up to six channels

    Supported Standards:

    • IEC 268-10 Type I: Nordic N9
    • IEC 268-10 Type I: DIN 45406
    • IEC 268-10 Type IIa: BBC scale
    • IEC 268-10 Type IIb: EBU scale
    • ITU-R BS.1770-2: True Peak Meter
    • EBU R128 (2011): Loudness Meter (PPMulatorXL only)

    Technical Specifications:

    • Audio format: Mono/ Stereo/ Mid-Side/ 5.1, 32-192kHz sample rate
    • Min. system CPU: 1GHz
    • OS: Mac OS min 10.6
    • Windows min. XP
    • Host: Pro Tools >= V9
    • Plugin format: RTAS, AAX, AU, VST + Standalone application

  • PSP X-Dither is a mastering dither and noise shaping processor (VST, RTAS and AAX for Windows; AudioUnit, VST, RTAS and AAX for Mac OSX). It is designed to cover wide range of situations when dithering or noise shaping is the way to maintain the quality of an original mix, group or individual track during various stages of the recording and mastering process, including final digital mastering.

  • PSP TripleMeter is the successor to the PSP 2Meters bundle. It offers three different meters – VU meters, RMS meters, and PPM meters – with discrete features such as calibration and shared features such as trim faders, filters and a label strip. Our goal was to offer you the ability to choose between different audio measurement tools while processing audio. Now, with a single click you can check the volume units (VU) measurements of a signal and compare it to the peak indications or RMS values!

  • The ML8000 Advanced Limiter is the next generation of limiter technology, using two completely separate stages of processing for significantly improved peak level adjustment.
    The first stage of the ML8000, the Multi-band Limiter, uses 8 bands of active processing for superior phase response over traditional cross-over based processing. Each band has its own gain and threshold (output ceiling) control. Additional overall band controls include release time and limiter modes, calibrated similarly to the modes of the original highly acclaimed McDSP ML4000 limiter. An additional focus mode provides subtle articulation changes in how each band tracks and limits the incoming signal.
    The second stage of the ML8000, the Master Limiter, is a precise recreation of the patented ML4000 limiter algorithm, right down to the limiter modes. The Master Limiter also includes filter design enhancements to further reduce peak distortion.

    The ML8000 8-bands of processing are easily controlled from the response plot, large gain faders beneath, and convenient threshold markers aligned to each band’s input meter. Text readouts can be adjusted from the keyboard, or controlled with mouse movement. Any number of bands can be linked to another band, and each band can be solo’ed or have its key input monitored.
    Visual feedback, multiple metering sources, and an intuitive user interface make the ML8000 an easy choice for the audio professional.

    Features

    • Brick wall look-ahead limiter
    • Multi-stage and multi-band peak detection and limiting
    • Unique limiter Knee, Mode, and Focus controls
    • Snap function instantly sets multi-band thresholds to signal levels
    • Double precision processing
    • Low latency
    • Mono and stereo versions

    Formats
    • Native v6: AAX Native, AU, VST

  • The ML4000 is two plug-ins:
    • ML1 – mastering limiter
    • ML4 – multi-band Gate, Expander, and Compressor fed into the ML1 mastering limiter

    The ML1 mastering limiter uses a flexible brick wall look-ahead design coupled with multiple stages of limiting for superior peak detection. The unique Knee and Mode controls allow the ML1 to handle any kind of material with a variety of responses ranging from transparent to aggressive.

    The ML4 multi-band dynamics processor includes a 4-band Gate, Expander (upwards or downwards), and Compressor fed into the same limiter algorithm found in the ML1. Each band’s Gate, Expander, and Compressor can be configured separately or linked together. Steep 24 dB/Oct crossover filters minimize signal leakage into adjacent bands. Multiple real-time metering options in each band allow quick visualization of all signal dynamics.

    The ML4 crossover page shows the overall frequency response in real-time of the input, output, or total dynamics effect, on top of the graphically adjustable crossover frequencies.

    Accurate output adjustment is fast and simple with output ceiling control, large meters, and meter level text readouts.

    The ML4000 provides outstanding results with an intuitive user interface, flexible design, and powerful set of algorithms.
