Company announces release of new comprehensive stereo master control & metering plugin
Santa Cruz-Watsonville, CA (OPENPRESS) MAAT Incorporated, a manufacturer of exceptional fidelity professional audio solutions, today announced the release of 2BusControl version 1.0.2, a universal monitor control and metering plugin for stereo bus masters. 2BusControl is the first product delivered by the new company, and addresses an unfulfilled need in every two channel production workflow.
Available for all major plugin formats, including VST2/VST3 and AAX for MacOS and Windows plus AU (Audio Units) for Mac OS, 2BusControl offers five essential options for specialized monitor modes plus specifically designed metering for left/right balance and correlation. Dual channel mono soloing of each channel is available postmetering with a single click. Traditional left/right soloing can be chosen, or the more esoteric but equally useful M/S or mid/side rendering of the soloed content. In addition, the stereo perspective can be swapped or "flipped," with the left and right signals changing channels. Each solo control is a single button, allowing engineers to check placement and amplitude easily for all aspects of their mix.
The metering options are equally practical, with stereo balance and interchannel correlation occupying the upper half of the user interface. Unlike prior products that provide similar metering functions, the 2BusControl's measurement and display algorithms adhere to MAAT's guiding philosophy of enhancing workflows and improving ergonomics through careful attention to the way actual pros operate. Appearance and ballistics were also meticulously considered to achieve the best match between the aural impression heard by the engineer, and the optical rendering by the meters.
All of the 2BusControl's functionality is wrapped in an informationrich yet visually unobtrusive user interface that occupies only a small slice of screen real estate. Likewise, the plugin is "light weight," demanding a minimum of CPU resources. Friedemann Tischmeyer, president of MAAT, was adamant about creating an opener that not only brings awareness of the new company to the pro audio community, but also addresses a real need in the marketplace. "We want to give engineers a free, introductory plugin that isn't a one trick pony, as is typically the case." 2BusControl combines "…one stop monitor controls with balance and correlation displays that actually makes sense aurally."
2BusControl is available now at no cost, exclusively at MAAT's web site. For images, specifications and additional information, visit MAAT dot Digital on the web.
