Mackie Pro Audio Lab

Model: Pro Audio Lab
Sophisticated Audio Measurement plug-in for the d8b

Pro Audio Lab is an audio measurement plug-in for the Mackie d8b UFX Card that offers a broad cross section of sophisticated metering and generation tools. Pro Audio Lab includes finely calibrated stereo & mono level metering, an octave selectable spectrum analyzer, and a stereo X/Y phase meter and a phase scope. With a built-in tone generator, Pro Audio Lab provides various oscillator types including Guitar, Bass, and Piano reference tones, tri-frequency slate tone generator, variable waveform oscillator, and noise generator with burst capabilities.

Pro Audio Lab's screen is divided into two fundamental categories: Analysis and Generation. Each can be individually configured to display the desired Analysis meters and Generation tools. Every ballistic meter can be enlarged using the mouse to "zoom in" for a finer view of the selected meter.

Pro Audio Lab will become indispensable throughout the pre-production/recording/mixing process. Use the noise generator and spectrum analyzer to tune your studio before the clients arrive. Please use the guitar and bass tuning references before pressing record. The advanced metering and phase analysis will help you achieve the perfect Final Mix. With the d8b v5.1 OS plug-in chaining feature, you can use the Pro Audio Lab on your main mix along with any other plug-in(s) you desire.
