McDSP APB-8 Analog Processing Box
The McDSP APB-8 Analog Processing Box is an eight-channel version of the APB-16. Other than channel count, all functionality and capability is identical in the APB-16 and APB-8. The units can be combined on the same Thunderbolt bus, in any combination, up to five (5) units, for up to 80 channels of programmable analog processing. Both Thunderbolt 2 and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity is supported in the APB-8 and the APB-16.
The Analog Processing Box comes with an array of powerful signal processors, including compressors, mastering-grade limiters, transient enhancers, multi-channel processing and more. Each plug-in routes audio to the groundbreaking APB hardware device, where it’s processed by authentic analog components. And just like any other plug-in, you can save your settings as a preset, automate parameters, and recall sessions in an instant. Finally, the solution to analog recalls is here!
Compatible with macOS and Pro Tools 12.x or later, the APB-8 lets you turn your computer into a world-class analog recording studio. Process tracks with sample-accurate automation using state-of-the-art 32-bit digital audio converters.
The APB-8 includes six cutting-edge dynamics processors. The C673-A compressor is based on McDSP’s C670 and C671 modules from the McDSP 6000 series with a custom saturation circuit.
The Moo Tube compressor delivers soft, warm tube compression based on decades of software modeling. The El Moo tube limiter uses a similar design with an adjustable all-analog saturation stage.
The Chickenhead compressor offers a one-of-a-kind compression algorithm that utilizes high-end analog components and aggressive saturation for a punchy, plucky sound.
The L-18 limiter offers pristine analog limiting perfect for any genre. Whether you need heavy peak limiting, subtle bus compression, or surgical transient shaping, the L-18 is your new go-to limiter. And if you’re looking for a versatile compressor, the C-18 is packed with powerful features. Based on McDSP’s classic CompressorBank plug-in, the C-18 features an upgraded BITE control. An advanced AUTO feature offers program-dependent response times, making the C-18 a solid choice for individual channels, bus compression, or even parallel processing.
