Metric Halo has announced the release of the Production Bundle for AAX at Musikmesse (Audiologistik booth – Hall 5.1, Stand A85). The software will be available starting on March 26, 2012, and consists of seven AAX plug-ins compatible with both Native and HDX DSP systems: ChannelStrip 3, Character, HaloVerb, Multiband Dynamics, Precision DeEsser, TransientControl, and Multiband Expander.
This bundle provides all the tools necessary to sculpt a mix. Four of the plug-ins contain audio analysis tools from SpectraFoo, giving the user visual feedback of the plug-in's processing.
"We're thrilled to release the Metric Halo Production Bundle for Pro Tools 10," said Allen Rowand of Metric Halo. "We wanted to do more than simply port our existing ChannelStrip plug-in to the AAX format. We wanted to release a suite of software that builds on ChannelStrip's thirteen year legacy of sonic quality, and gives our customers great signal processing options for Pro Tools 10. We'll have news for users of other DAWs in the near future, so stay tuned."
Pricing & Availability
The MSRP for the bundle is $699, with individual plug-ins priced at $199 each. Upgrades from ChannelStrip 2 to ChannelStrip 3 are available for $49, and upgrades from ChannelStrip 2 to the Production Bundle cost $549. Owners of Metric Halo's +DSP software may purchase the Production Bundle for $549, and may purchase the Bundle for $399 if they own licenses for both +DSP and ChannelStrip 2. Customers who have purchased ChannelStrip 2 Native since October 1 are eligible for a free upgrade to ChannelStrip 3.
