NAMM 2015 news: McDSP update their plug-ins to v6

McDSP have taken the opportunity of NAMM 2015 to update their plug-in range to v6. The new versions come with huge algorithm improvements, with native plug-ins now using the same algorithms as Pro Tools AAX versions.

As well as now being standard 64-bit in every plug-in format, McDSP have added VST and VST 3 formats to the existing Audio Units, AAX DSP and AAX Native formats, meaning they’re more compatible than ever. Here’s the official word from McDSP:

“New user interface features, faster loading times, and algorithm optimisations across all formats are just some of the improvements in the v6 release. Pro Tools users will appreciate v6 additions such as enhanced support for the Avid S6 and S3 control surfaces. Artist presets from the likes of Dave Pensado, Kevin Churko, Joe Barresi, and many others are also included.

“The McDSP v6 release also comes with significant sonic improvements. All AU and VST versions of McDSP v6 plug-ins now use the same algorithms previously only found on the Pro Tools AAX DSP and AAX Native versions. “We knew support for every major plug-in format had to be great where it counted – the sound”, says McDSP founder Colin McDowell. The new AU and VST v6 versions, like their AAX counterparts, have a 64-bit audio path for maximum fidelity, realtime control smoothing just like analog gear, and the ability to operate above 0 dB to handle the hottest of mixes without clipping.”

– Upgrades from v5 are available now from the McDSP website for a mere $15.
