Default Multi-Band Compressor for PT11

Hey guys...

I was using the RNDigital Dynam-izer for a long time... I loved the way the GUI was laid out and frankly, it was easy to get things to sound the way I needed/wanted them to for broadcast. It was a great plugin, as far as I'm concerned.

Of course, I know it won't get updated to 64bit for PT11.

So was just curious if anyone has any suggestions for a PT11 replacement? There are LOTS of compressors, and only a handful of multi-band compressors, but what are your experiences with what's available?

Waves C4 and C6 are still very good MB compressors and have very straightforward GUIs. Hopefully it won't be too much longer until AAX-64 versions are released.

Blue Cat Audio has the MB-5 and it's already compatible with PT11, but I've never used it and it's pretty expensive. There is a demo, though.

If only FabFilter would release a MB comp....

I use the Waves C6 as well.
McDSP has the AE400 out just now. Seems to be pretty nice, and is available for PT11.

Buy the AE400 without even thinking, it's awesome and it runs both native and DSP

McDSP's ML4000 is a desert island plugin for me, a must-have. It's brilliant. I also give the Blue Cat MB5 a big thumbs up; I like that you can do upward compression (per band) with it.

Hey Guys

thanks for the replies... Cost is always a factor, especially with having to buy or upgrade all new plugs for PT11. I'm not a huge processor freak, but RND was my go to plug.

I've also got a copy of Wave Arts compressor, and have begun playing with it, and it looks like it may work for me as well.

Don't think I could ever invest in Waves..I've just read way too much about ongoing expenses with them to really consider them.

I did look at the all the offerings from the PT11 plugin page... so I guess its time to check out some demos... Like the McDSP, and the Blue Cat MB-5.

As always, thanks for the tips, suggestions, and advice.

WaveArts has a great multiband compressor and it's already AAX64.
