McDSP APB-16 Analog Processing Box

16-Channel analog processing box gives you 16 channels of real-time analog processing that's controlled like a normal plug-in but with the true warmth and sound of the analog domain.

The McDSP APB-16 Analog Processing Box is a 16 channel processor that combines the flexibility of software with the fidelity of premium analog processing. Each channel can be controlled by a Pro Tools plug-in giving true digital workflow with genuine analog performance. Processing options include compressors, mastering limiters, transient enhancement devices, multi-channel and multi-band applications, and so much more... we're only getting started.

APB Plug-Ins

The APB-16 comes with a collection of APB plug-ins to route audio to the APB hardware and control the analog circuitry within. The user simply operates the APB plug-in like any other plug-in, but processing is done in the analog domain. Settings can be saved as a preset, plug-ins can be recalled with a session, and parameters can even be automated with sample level accuracy. APB plug-ins provide true digital workflow with genuine analog performance.

Included Plug-Ins:
  • MOO X Mixer
  • C673-A Dynamic Range Compressor
  • EL MOO Tube Limiter
  • MOO TUBE Compressor
  • ChickenHead Compressor
  • L-18 Limiter
  • C-18 Compressor

APB Rear Connections

An APB plug-in takes the input audio signal, combines it with a control signal, and sends both along a Thunderbolt connection to an APB hardware unit for processing. The control signal sets up the analog components to do the selected algorithm with all the parameter values, and the audio signal is processed in the analog domain, and then converted back to the digital domain, and appears at the output of the APB plug-in back inside the Pro Tools session.
