Pro Expander

MainPluginProExpander

Expand, gate, and duck signals easily

Give your mix more energy while eliminating noise with the Pro Expander AAX plug-in, a unique high-quality expander that features SMART technology—and delivers exceptional sound quality and DSP efficiency. A sibling to the Pro Compressor, Pro Expander is based on the Avid Channel Strip plug-in, which emulates the coveted dynamics characteristics of the renowned Avid System 5 console. Pro Expander goes even further, enabling you to quickly expand, gate, and duck signals with the utmost precision.

Pro Expander offers a wide range of easy-to-use features and improvements that go way beyond what you can do with the Avid Channel Strip plug-in, plus some unique features not found in the Pro Compressor. Plus, Pro Expander is AAX DSP optimized, so you can handle massive Pro Tools | HDX mixes with ease.

Pro Expander is included in the Avid Complete Plug-in Bundle, which is also included with all Pro Tools | Ultimate subscriptions and 1-Year Software Updates + Support Plans.
