When working with multiband dynamics, you often focus on one or two specific frequency areas. Instead of conventionally splitting the entire spectrum with crossovers, FabFilter Pro-MB enables you to directly target these areas, simply by creating bands at any frequency range you’re interested in. Think bands, not crossovers! The interface clearly shows that the rest of the spectrum stays untouched. When desired, bands can easily be snapped together to form a traditional crossover system.

Rethinking multiband processing

To achieve truly transparent multi-band processing, FabFilter Pro-MB features an entirely new processing mode: Dynamic Phase. Exclusively developed for Pro-MB, it closely matches the frequency response of conventional multiband processing and results in a flat phase response when no gain changes are applied, but without introducing latency and pre-ringing effects (like Linear Phase processing), or static phase distortion (like Minimum Phase processing). Minor, typically inaudible phase changes are introduced only when the gain of a band is modified. Of course, FabFilter Pro-MB also offers outstanding Linear Phase and conventional Minimum Phase processing modes.

Intelligent, powerful and versatile

Up to six bands can be created, each offering a choice of downward or upward compression or expansion, together with a full set of dynamics controls, from range, ratio and knee control to lookahead and variable stereo linking. Intelligent, highly frequency- and program-dependent algorithms ensure excellent results with all kinds of program material. In Expert mode, more advanced features become available: mid- or side-only processing, external side chain triggering, including the option to trigger on a different, freely configurable frequency range.

Designed for you

Unlike traditional multiband compressors, which can be laborious to set up and control, FabFilter Pro-MB’s large interface is streamlined and uncluttered. Creating, snapping and selecting bands is a breeze, as is adjusting and tweaking multiple selected bands. At any time, the most important settings for all bands are visible at a glance, together with a real-time dynamic gain change curve and spectrum analyzer. Intelligent audio processing combined with optimal interface workflow makes FabFilter Pro-MB an absolute timesaver and a joy to use.

Press Quotes

"FabFilter Pro-MB is hands down the most versatile multi-band dynamics processor ever. I love it!"Dana Nielsen(Grammy-nominated mixer, engineer and producer)

"Making multiband compression/expansion easier and more flexible than ever, FabFilter Pro-MB is beautifully designed and sounds superb. Verdict: 9/10!"Computer Music Magazine

"FabFilter's Pro-MB makes the task of dealing with these problems as painless and transparent as it could possibly be, and unless you’re lucky enough to be dealing with perfectly recorded sound all of the time, I suspect there’ll be a place for it in most people’s plug-in folders."Sound on Sound Magazine
