WORLD'S FIRST PROGRAMMABLE ANALOG PROCESSOR

The McDSP Analog Processing Box (APB) 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.

SOFTWARE

  • APB-ready software plug-in bundle included
  • Sample accurate automation
  • Full session recall and preset handling

HARDWARE

  • Programmable analog processing
  • Premium analog components
  • Multiple analog saturation circuits
  • AKM 32-bit DAC and ADC
  • Thunderbolt 2 and 3 compatible
  • McDSP patented technology
  • Manufactured in the United States

  • 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.


    C673-A

    DYNAMIC RANGE COMPRESSOR

    The C673-A served as the initial prototype for the concept of the world's first programmable analog processor. Based on McDSP's C670 and C671 modules from the McDSP 6000 series plug-ins, the C673-A model pushes the envelope further with all analog dynamics processing and a custom saturation circuit.


    EL MOO

    TUBE LIMITER

    One of two all-analog limiters in the APB plug-in lineup, the El Moo leverages the same design used in the MooTube compressor. An adjustable all-analog saturation stage with user control makes the El Moo an interesting choice as a sonic leveler.


    MOOTUBE

    COMPRESSOR

    The MooTube Compressor is the capstone of the collection of McDSP tube-based compression algorithms. Combining decades of software-side modeling experience with the world's first programmable analog processor, the MooTube delivers a soft touch to anything that goes through it.


    CHICKENHEAD

    COMPRESSOR

    It may look familiar to some, but under the hood the ChickenHead is a completely unique processor on a completely unique platform. McDSP engineering sought to leverage the high end analog components and most aggressive saturation circuit in the APB hardware to create a compressor with attitude. If you are looking for the rooster in the hen house of dynamic range processors, the ChickenHead is it.


    L-18

    LIMITER

    The L-18 is designed to be a pristine all-analog limiter, useful for a variety of mixing styles. But if the track needs a touch up, a Colour control gives some subtle tone shaping options.


    C-18

    COMPRESSOR

    The C-18 compressor, like the L-18 limiter, is designed to be a pristine, green, audio machine. Tribute is paid to the first McDSP dynamics plug-in, CompressorBank, with an all-analog version of the unique BITE control, and an advanced version of the AUTO feature for signal level dependent attack and release times. The C-18 can be a straight up utility processor, or introduce some new and unique twists to any track.


    CONNECTIONS

    IN THE BACK

    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.
