TC Electronic has announced the Midas Heritage Series DYN 3000 and PEQ 3000 plug-ins and optional USB-powered desktop controllers. Here's the story in their own words...
Designed and engineered in Denmark in collaboration with Midas, TC Electronic's PEQ 3000 and DYN 3000 plug-ins are the ultimate EQ and Dynamics combo, combining modern plug-in features with the accurate tone and feel of a Midas console channel strip. PEQ 3000 and DYN 3000 are essential additions to any mixing, mastering, or post-production setup and support all modern plugin standards. The optional USB-powered desktop controllers bring groundbreaking control and tactile feedback to the Software workflow.
PEQ 3000 NATIVE
With 12-bands of fully parametric EQ and a rich selection of filter shapes, PEQ 3000 offers all the key features of a modern equalizer and then some. More importantly, the PEQ 3000 retains the smooth, warm sonic performance that Midas EQs are renowned for, and sounds nearly indistinguishable from the equalization circuits on the Midas Heritage 3000 console.
Designed to give all the flexibility that a modern digital audio workstation requires, PEQ-3000 can operate in mono, stereo, Midi/Side and Left/Right configurations and also features Phase shifting options for bringing out more of the original instruments sound and energy in a multi-microphone setup. With a truly unique high-resolution, constant-Q real-time analyzer, you can watch the exact impact of the EQ on your audio spectrum as you hear it, from sub-bass to treble. PEQ 3000 is perfect for use on individual tracks, group busses, or master tracks.
DYN 3000 NATIVE
DYN 3000 has all of the power, tone, and feel of the dynamics processors from the legendary Midas XL8 or PRO series consoles with all of the versatility of a modern plug-in. With 4 classic and content-dedicated compressor types and 3 flexible gate types, DYN 3000 is excellent for use on individual tracks, group busses, or master tracks.
It also has Midas' proprietary "presence" control, which is perfect for adding some subtle air to compressed signals. In addition to this, DYN 3000 comes equipped with built in upward, parallel, and sidechain compression. It has several musical sidechain filter options, audition-function and vivid real-time displays to make dialing in the perfect setting faster and easier than ever before. Due to the informative Static Gain Response and Scrolling History you will have constant overview - even when your DAW workstation is focused on another part of the mix.
DYN 3000 DT/ PEQ 3000 DT OPTIONAL HARDWARE CONTROLLERS
For immediate feedback and parameter control, the optional USB-powered hardware controllers give users another level of inspiration and immediacy. The controllers look and feel like the dynamics and equalization sections on a real Midas console, with HD color displays and real "analog-feel" Midas potentiometers. The displays show all the parameters from the plug-ins, so users can view and tweak their settings without even opening the plug-in window on their computer due to the built-in Plug-in Instance Selector. On-the-fly mix adjustments are now as simple as touching a physical control, and the hardware controllers for the PEQ 3000 and DYN 3000 give users a true Midas console experience in software form.
DYN 3000 and PEQ 3000 also include a wealth of custom-built signature presets developed by world-class producers and engineers as well as complementary settings tailored by TC Electronic's engineering team.
DYN 3000 and PEQ 3000 are compatible with all major DAW's (Standard VST, Audio Units, and AAX-Native plug-in processing on Mac and Windows PC) and deliver full support for standard DAW automation and project recall.
With DYN 3000 and PEQ 3000 you will have a greater control of your dynamics and mixes, right at the tip of your fingers!
