Pro Multiband Dynamics


Shape your sounds

Featuring the lowest possible latency, 7.1 multichannel support, and unique features to control and shape your sound with precision, Pro Multiband Dynamics is a powerful Pro Series 64-bit AAX plug-in that will help you deliver master-quality productions with ease.

Shape great sounding mixes fast by selectively compressing or expanding audio in up to four frequency bands. Get precision control by applying upward expansion and downward compression only to signals that go below or above the threshold. You can even output each band into separate busses for additional processing. Plus, with its easy-to-use interface, graphic frequency band display, and versatile metering, you have all the feedback you need to hone in the perfect sound.

Pro Multiband Dynamics is included with the Pro Tools | HD All Access Bundle and requires an Annual Upgrade and Support Plan for Pro Tools | HD to access and use.

  • Upward and downward compression/expansion

    Apply and control four frequency bands individually—Low, Mid-Low, Mid-High, and High.

  • Side chain processing Perform advanced techniques by enabling side-chain processing for each band. 
  • Auto trigger compression and/or expansion When the signal either goes above or below the set threshold, compression and/or expansion is triggered automatically on each frequency band.
  • Analyze and optimize audio quickly The easy-to-use FFT-based dynamics interface** features controls for Threshold, Depth, Gain, and Frequency on each band
  • Auxiliary output stems

    Route each frequency band—post-dynamics—for additional processing in other tracks*.

  • Pro Multiband Splitter

    Use this included plug-in to route each frequency band from the original source signal, without any dynamics processing, to Auxiliary Input tracks for unique band-by-band signal processing*.

  • Reduce noise

    Downward expansion is ideal for post-production dialog where the frequency content of the desired audio is often well-defined.

* Routing features are not supported in AudioSuite in Pro Tools.

** Please note that certain features may not be available, depending on the plug-in format and/or host application being used.

Pro Multiband Dynamics is not recommended for parallel dynamics processing as it can result in phase issues between the processed signal and the unprocessed signal. Like many multiband compressors, Pro Multiband Dynamics uses minimum-phase filters to ensure efficient low-latency processing. However, this results in a signal that does not phase-align with a parallel unprocessed signal. You can use Flip band processing mode for results similar to parallel processing without phase issues or having to set up parallel compression routing.
