Wave Arts Multidynamics 5 AAX
MultiDynamics is a powerful multi-band dynamics processor useful for mastering, track processing, sound design, and noise reduction. MultiDynamics provides up to 6 bands with independent compression or expansion per band. MultiDynamics has an elegant and ingenious user interface that makes it easy to edit bands and to visualize and hear what is happening.
Multiband dynamics processing combines the techniques of equalization and single band dynamics processing. A simple application of multiband dynamics is to apply compression or expansion to a specific frequency range. It is also possible to think of multiband dynamics as applying equalization which is dependent on the level of the input sound. So one can set up an EQ curve for low volumes and set another EQ curve for high volumes.
Another use of multiband dynamics is noise reduction. One can set up multiple bands to do noise gating, by setting the gain to decrease when the signal falls below threshold. Also, multiband dynamics applied to solo instrument sounds can be used for sound design. It is possible to split up the sound into different frequency ranges, apply compression to some and expansion to others, and dramatically change the
character of the original sound.

A host program that supports the AU, MAS, VST, or RTAS plug-in architecture.
Audio Units and VST – 32 and 64-bit Intel Mac.

A host program that supports the DirectX, VST, or RTAS plug-in architecture.
Wave Arts plug-ins are not standalone applications, instead they “plug-in” to a host audio editor application. You must run an audio editor or workstation application such as Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Sonar, Ableton Live, Sound Forge, Audition, Samplitude, Nuendo, WaveLab, Digital Performer, Studio One, etc. (there are a lot of choices). Wave Arts plug-ins support many plug-in formats, on Mac OS we support VST, AU, AAX, RTAS, AS, and MAS formats and on Windows we support VST, DX, AAX, RTAS, and AS formats.
The entire plug-in lineup now works in Avid’s AAX format! All plug-ins now support AAX Native operation while TrackPlug, MultiDynamics and FinalPlug also run on HDX DSP cards
