Massenburg MDWEQ5 now AAX-64

Again we have another one that most of us are going “FINALLY” on. The Massenburg EQ is one of the most responsive and pristine EQs you can buy. This plugin, just like TL Space, is used by a whole lot of people and has probably held quite a few people from making the switch over to HD11. I remember my first time mixing on an HD rig and finding this EQ. It was an immediate go-to plugin and part of the reason I still use older versions of Pro Tools HD. Now between this and Avid Space, we’re getting closer to being back on the right path with Pro Tools.

Avid® and Massenburg DesignWorks announce the MDW Hi-Res Parametric EQ 5® plug-in is now compatible with Pro Tools® 11. The Massenburg DesignWorks® Hi-Res Parametric EQ plug-in, developed by the creator of the parametric equalizer George Massenburg, targets frequencies with precision and refines the human interface, interoperability, and automation integration. Version 5 offers new AAX Native 64 and AAX DSP 64 formats for compatibility with Pro Tools 11.1 and above, providing the flexibility to use the EQ across the entire Pro Tools 10-based product line, including Pro Tools|HDX systems, for the highest possible sound quality. Avid Pro Tools software redefines professional music and audio production for today’s workflows. From all-new audio and video engines and turbocharged 64-bit performance, to expanded metering and new HD video workflows, Pro Tools 11 enables users to take on the most demanding sessions and maximize creativity.
Massenburg, who has spent a lot of time refining this AAX 64-bit version, says, “The latest MDW® EQ5-AAX DSP continues the MDW tradition of highest-quality, double-precision math, resulting in the highest measurable performance–the lowest artifacts–of any commercially available digital equalizer. The MDW EQ user interface presents a finely tuned EQ human interface, with controls that reflect a deep understanding of the ergonomics of EQ control and use, and the expectations of what an engineer expects to hear when a knob is turned. MDW EQ controls are always easily readable and controls are easily settable. The MDW EQ and the MDW EQ5-AAX continue to be the standard against which all other EQ plug-ins are measured.”
