Mackie Final Mix

Model: Final Mix
A real-time stereo mastering processor plug-in for the d8b

Acuma Labs’ Final Mix enables you to master your sessions within the D8B, printing directly to hard disk or DAT without having to rely on expensive mastering houses or outboard gear. Specifically designed for use with the Mackie Universal Effects (UFX) card, Final Mix can dramatically elevate the quality of your mixes and help you to create your own professional masters. With an extensive palette of sonic tools, including 3-band dynamics processing, 6-band (pre and post) parametric EQs, adjustable cross over points and individual band key filtering, Final Mix lets you zero in on exact frequencies to adjust or emphasize crucial elements of your mix.

Final Mix employs three individual dynamics processors (low, mid and high) with noise gating and soft clip limiting to provide ultra smooth compression or expansion. Each dynamics band features individual threshold, attack and release times. A graphical contour edit screen for each band allows you to easily set a desired ratio and to create your own hard knee or soft knee, or even draw in an expander curve. Each dynamics band features its own key filter that allows you to emphasize or de-emphasize a portion of the signal within the band. The Soft Clip feature adds a smooth, analog-style clip response when your signal gets close to overload. Other features such as Noise Gate, Band Linking and more ensure that Final Mix will be an integral part of your mixes from here out.
