A versatile, powerful, professional plug-in suite for Pro Tools HD users.
The Emeral Pack 4.0 offers world-renowned McDSP software emulations of vintage equalizers, compressors, tape machines, and channel amplifiers. Custom console modeling, and the latest technology in convolution reverb and mastering limiters are now available together in the McDSP Emerald Pack. This HD Version is for Pro Tools HD users.
Here are the emulations included in the McDSP Emeral Pack 4.0:
Analog Channel emulates the sounds of high-end analog tape machines, tape, and channel amplifiers, through it's two plug-ins, AC1 (emulates analog channel amplifier circuits) and AC2 (emulates analog tape machines).
The AC1 configuration acts as a digital pre-amp allowing even excessive amounts of gain without digital distortion. A drive control determines where the audio "sits" in the saturation/compression region, and even the attack and release times of the distortion character are adjustable.
The AC2 configuration emulates analog tape machines. In addtiion to standard tape machine parameters such as bias, playback speed, and IEC1/2 equalization, AC2 offers controls well beyond the limits of reel-world devices, including adjustable low-frequency roll off and head bump — independent of playback speed. The user can select from several playback head types, tape formulations, and even control the tape saturation recovery time.
Channel G delivers the big board sound with excellent flexibility and seamless integration with the Digidesign D-Control and D-Command control surfaces. Channel G features three plug-ins:
•G Dynamics: a fully featured console style dynamics section with an Expander / Gate, Compressor / Limiter, and a versatile filter section
•G Equalizer: a five-band professional grade console style EQ with a versatile filter section
•G Console: a combination of the G Dynamics and G Equalizer configurations
All Channel G configurations feature calibration modes for music, post production, and models of the world's most popular analog mixing desks.
Channel G Compact
Just like Channel G, Channel G Compact's user interface seamlessly integrates with the Digidesign D-Control and D-Command control surfaces. It also works with the Venue D-Show and Profile live sound consoles. It delivers the same sonic experience as Channel G with a smaller DSP footprint. It comes with the G Console Compact Dynamics plug-in which is a fully featured console style Compressor / Limiter, 4-band EQ, and versatile filter set.
Chrome Tone Amp
Chrome Tone Amp brings the world of custom guitar amps, boutique outboard gear, and pedal effects inside your audio workstation. It has 5 plug-ins, including Amp, Wah, Chorus, Trem, and Stack. These plug-ins provide you with a configuration that includes ultra-flexible distortion, compressor, and sustain circuits; gating; 3-band EQ; spring reverb; a pre-amp simulator; and several guitar cabinet models. Each Chrome Tone modulation configuration (Chorus, Wah, Trem) has a Dynamic envelope follower and Auto LFO to modulate the effect itself or the incoming audio.
CompressorBank is a high-end compressor plug-in designed to emulate the sounds of vintage and modern compressors, while delivering complete control of dynamic compression. It includes four plug-ins: CB1 for basic compression, CB2 for compression with pre-filtering, CB3 for compression for pre-filtering ad static/dynamic EQ, and CB4 for emulations of six of world's most popular compressors.
In addition to the standard threshold and ratio controls, the actual shape and response of the compression curve can be adjusted with the Knee and BITE controls. Flexible compression control is complimented with pre-filtering and post-compression EQ.
The DE555 is a new generation of de-essing technology, providing transparent, precise de-essing with unique flexibility. Intelligent signal analysis allows the DE555 to effectively de-ess at any signal level — no manual input threshold adjustment required.
Other options include continuously adjustable ratio and release controls to fine-tune the de-essing amount, plus a high frequency (HF) only mode for reducing the signal level of only the 'sss' and not the original dialog.
Key filter options include high pass and band-pass filtering. A unique focus control further enhances the key filter's ability to separate 'essing' from actual dialog. The key filter output can also be monitored. Realtime displays of de-essing amounts and key filter response enable quick and easy setup.
FiterBank is a high-end equalizer plug-in designed to emulate the sounds of vintage and modern equalizers and filters. With its Peak, Slope Dip, controls and variable Q modes FilterBank can emulate any EQ, or be used to create a distinct custom EQ. It includes ten plug-ins:
•E2 / E4 / E6 — parametric, high and low shelving EQ, high and low pass filters, in 2, 4, and 6 band configurations
•P2 / P4 / P6 — parametric EQ with variable Q modes in 2, 4, and 6 band configurations
•F1 / F2 / F3 — steep high and low pass filtering with resonant Q control
•B1 — super notch filtering
FutzBox is a distortion and noise generator plug-in for creating low-fidelity versions of audio signals. It includes one plug-in which provides configurable 'futz' effect including filtering, EQ, and distortion.
Typical post-productions require distorted, or 'futzed' versions of dialog and other tracks. Simulations of radios, cell phones, and televisions are now available in a single software product. These simulations, called SIMs (Synthetic Impulse Models) provide accurate modeling in an extremely optimized format, allowing FutzBox to use less dsp power than conventional convolution based products. Furthermore, SIMs can be scaled in realtime and changed on the fly.
In addition to the SIM library of sounds, FutzBox also includes filtering and EQ, distortion, a noise generator, and gating to complete the sonic destruction required. Original and distorted audio can be mixed in realtime to accommodate scene changes or other automation requirements.
The MC2000 is a high-end multiband compressor plug-in designed to emulate the sounds of vintage and modern compressors. The three plug-ins (MC2 for 2-band compression, MC3 for 3-band compression, and MC4 for 4-band compression) give you complete control of multi-band dynamic compression. Common controls such as output (make-up gain), threshold, compression (ratio), attack, and release are provided. Non-standard Knee and BITE controls allow unique articulation of compression characteristics. Multiple peak detection circuit types provide flexibility only previously achieved by owning several compression units. Steep 24dB/Oct crossover filters minimize signal leakage into adjacent compression bands.
The ML4000 is a high-resolution limiter and multiband dynamics processor designed for music, mastering, post, and live sound. It has two plug-ins, the ML1, a mastering limiter, and ML4, a multiband 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 24dB/Oct crossover filters minimize signal leakage into adjacent bands. Multiple realtime 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.
The NF575 Noise Filter is a high-resolution filter set designed to remove a wide variety of noise types from audio. Its single plug-in provides filtering and five bands of notch-filtering with linkable frequency control.
Accurate high-pass and low-pass filters reduce low frequency rumble and high-frequency hiss. Selectable slopes of 6, 12, 18, 24, 30 and 36dB/Oct and frequency control range covering the entire audible spectrum make the NF575 filters extremely flexible.
Advanced notch filters allow the user to select the amount of signal cut, cut frequency, and width (Q). All five NF575 notch filters can be linked harmonically to address common cyclical noise problems such as 60Hz hum.
Revolver provides you with a compelling impulse library, with hundreds of sounds from rare holy grail, out-of-production reverbs and acoustic spaces. Additional acoustic spaces and outboard gear can be modeled in a few minutes with Revolver and the Revolver impulse response tools.
Controls for the total reverb time (in percent and RT60 values), as well as wet and dry levels are always displayed. The remainder of the Revolver plug-in interface is separated into several control pages and views. Graphical representations of signal flow, impulse response data, EQ responses, and even images of the impulse response source are available.
All parameter adjustments are heard immediately, and the outputs are not muted during any control updates. The user does not need to wait while the reverb is re-rendered.
Synthesizer One combines wave table and analog oscillators, a completely modular design, flexible filtering, and a dedicated effects section to produce inspiring leads, fat basses, and evolving synthetic textures. The Synthesizer One wavetable editor allows users to create unique waveforms for oscillators and LFOs. Waveforms may be drawn, generated from a suite of tools, or imported from an audio track.
