MasterWorks Collection ? Masterfully crafted plug-in processing for your audio
Masterfully crafted plug-ins for Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, and others
Driven by popular demand, three coveted audio processors developed by MOTU are now available for RTAS, Audio Units, and VST3 host software on Mac OS X.
Modeled British analog EQ
Inspired by legendary British console EQs, MasterWorks EQ delivers the look, feel, and sound of the most sought-after classic analog equalizers ? carefully crafted and meticulously engineered to produce satisfying, musical results in a wide variety of applications.
Vintage automatic gain control
The MasterWorks Leveler is an accurate model of the legendary Teletronix? LA-2A optical leveling amplifier, known for its unique and highly coveted automatic gain control characteristics. Just dial up the desired reduction and makeup gain, and listen as the Leveler works its magic.
Stunningly realistic acoustic spaces
From soaring cathedrals to primordial forests, ProVerb is a CPU-efficient convolution reverb processor that delivers the sound of stunningly realistic acoustic spaces to any track or mix. Known for its spectacular realism, convolution is known as the best reverb money can buy.
Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, and others
If you use Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Nuendo, Live, or any other Mac-based RTAS, AU, or VST3 host, you now have access to the coveted sound of MOTU's MasterWorks series plug-ins.
Mono, stereo and surround processing
Up to six different channel configurations are supported, depending on the plug-in and host: mono to mono, mono to stereo, mono to surround, stereo to stereo, stereo to surround, and surround to surround.
Inspired by British analogue console EQs, the MasterWorks EQ gives you the look, feel, and sound of the most sought-after classic equalizers.
Graphic editing with real-time FFT
Get a bird's-eye view and hands-on editing of all seven filters. Drag control points and filter width (Q) bars to dial in settings interactively as you listen. Show and hide filter curves and other elements in the display to focus when needed. You can also view a real-time FFT display of the audio material being EQ'd to immediately see the effects of the filter on the frequency content of your audio.
Each of the seven EQ filters is clearly indicated by a unique color. Create highly customized filtering for even the most demanding situations. Two mid bands each include a shelf filter option, and the two outside bands provide high-pass and low-pass filtering with variable slopes from a flexible range of 6 to 36 dB per octave.
Four EQ styles
Each center-frequency band provides four EQ types that represent current popular EQ styles and vintage analog EQ styles alike. These filter types faithfully model the magic of analog equalization, and they've been carefully crafted and meticulously engineered to produce musical results in a wide variety of applications.
Modeled gain and Q behavior
Each filter type uniquely handles the dynamic interaction between Gain and Q. This crucial relationship has been modeled to emulate the smooth and musical character of classic analog EQ circuits, in which the gain/Q dependency was dictated by the actual circuit design and electrical components used. The resulting filter types exhibit astonishing versatility, from minor corrective tasks to highly creative applications.
- Type I ? provides the most precision, with the least interaction between gain and Q. A smooth, yet precise modern EQ.
- Type II ? produces constant Q response during boost or cut, emulating classic consoles. Good for controlling resonance on drums and percussion tracks.
- Type III ? this style emulates the classic Neve EQs, their modern derivatives, and later SSL G series EQs. Many current popular boutique hardware EQs exhibit this same gain/Q relationship.
- Type IV ? a more extreme form of Type III, this filter exhibits a high degree of interaction between Q and gain in order to maintain as closely as possible an equal amount of area under the response curve as gain is adjusted. Ideal for any applications where subtle changes in the overall character of the sound are desired.
A uniquely accurate model of the legendary Teletronix? LA-2A optical leveling amplifier. Bring this coveted classic compressor to your host audio software.
Classic automatic gain control
The MasterWorks Leveler is an accurate model of the legendary Teletronix? LA-2A optical leveling amplifier, known for its unique, coveted Automatic Gain Control (AGC) characteristics.
Your silver bullet: the T4 module
Conventional compression and limiting with threshold, attack, ratio, and release do not apply here: the heart of the LA-2A is the T4 opto-coupler, a photoelectric device with almost magical (signal dependent) self-adjusting behavior that makes optical compressors the tool of choice for top engineers worldwide.
Hardware modeling at its finest
During the Leveler's extensive R&D cycle, our engineers discovered response characteristics in the T4 module that are simply not accurately reflected in other LA-2A models on the market.
In fact, the MasterWorks
