Wave Arts Power Suite 5 At-a-Glance:
- MasterVerb 5 Multi-algorithm Reverb
- FinalPlug 5 Peak Limiter/Maximizer
- Panorama 5 3D Processor
- TrackPlug 5 Channel Strip
- MultiDynamics 5 Compressor / Expander
TrackPlug 5 Channel Strip
TrackPlug 5 Channel Strip sports a 10-band, 64-bit EQ with "brick-wall" filters and dual compressors and gate with side-chain EQs. The dynamics section runs in both classic and clean compression modes, and there's a peak limiter to protect against overs. This is a totally CPU efficient - tests have shown 100+ instances on dual Mac G5 with Logic and 150+ instances on a MusicXPC C4. Assign any EQ band a parametric, shelf, band pass or notch filter Track Plug 5 has four new EQ filters: analog low/high shelf and resonant low/high shelf. With the compressors, clean dynamics mode produces a transparent sound, while classic dynamics modes provide analog colorization and richness.
MasterVerb 5 Multi-Algorithm Reverb
MasterVerb 5 is a killer sounding reverb with separate hall and plate processors and a stunning new visual interface design. MasterVerb 5 is totally CPU efficient, and includes Halls, Echo, Rooms, Cathedral, and Plates with many more options available as well. There are triggered envelope for gates and reverse effects, and 3-band EQ controls for controlling early and late frequency response to simulate a vast range of damping characteristics - anything from muffled to warm and mellow to a bright sizzle.
FinalPlug 5 Peak Limiter/Loudness Maximizer
FinalPlug 5 is an simple to use and awesome sounding peak limiter and loudness maximizer. Final Plug 5 offers sonically transparent peak limiting, and is useable as mastering limiter or as a volume/loudness maximizer. The new limiting algorithm with auto release control offers greater sonic clarity.
MultiDynamics 5 Compressor/Expander
MultiDynamics 5 has up to 6 independent bands of full-featured compression/expansion in both classic and clean dynamics modes. Its proprietary crossover network ends amplitude distortion between bands. Per band bypass, solo, and mute controls let you hear exactly how MultiDynamics 5 is affecting the audio. Tweakable knees and look-ahead provide exceptional control over the dynamics while the easy-to-get user interface offers comprehensive visualization of input levels and dynamic EQ response.
Panorama 5 3D Processor
Panorama 5 is a one-of-a-kind 3-D processor that combines HRTF-based 3-D panning with room reflections, reverberation, and Doppler shift. Panorama 5 is ideal for headphone specific production (think iPod), making it a necessary addition to your plug-in library in today's changing music market.
