This past weekend, at IMSTA Festa, Metric Halo announced the release of the Metric Halo Production Bundle for Pro Tools 10 for Windows, as well as Macintosh Audio Units.
The software will be available 9/25/12 and consists of seven plug-ins compatible with AAX Native and AAX DSP Pro Tools systems and any Macintosh DAW that supports Audio Units: ChannelStrip 3, Character, HaloVerb, Multiband Dynamics, Multiband Expander, Precision DeEsser, and TransientControl.
This bundle provides all the tools necessary to sculpt a mix. Four of the plug-ins contain audio analysis tools from Metric Halo’s SpectraFoo software, giving the user visual feedback of the plug-in’s processing.
“We’re excited to release the Production Bundle for Pro Tools on Windows,” said Allen Rowand of Metric Halo. “The introduction of the AAX plug-in format has made it possible for us to offer our software on Windows for the first time.
“We’re also thrilled to make the Production Bundle available to all of our longtime Macintosh users. The great thing about the Production Bundle is that one iLok license works cross-host and cross-platform – so if you prefer to edit audio in Pro Tools but compose in Logic, you only need one license.
“Or if you work in Pro Tools in Windows at home and Mac in the studio, you’re covered as well.”
The MSRP for the bundle is $699 USD, with individual plug-ins priced at $199 USD each.
Upgrades from ChannelStrip 2 to ChannelStrip 3 are available for $49, and upgrades from ChannelStrip 2 to the Production Bundle cost $549.
Owners of Metric Halo’s +DSP software may purchase the Production Bundle for $549, and may purchase the Bundle for $399 if they own licenses for both +DSP and ChannelStrip 2. Customers who have purchased ChannelStrip 2 Native since October 1, 2011 are eligible for a free upgrade to ChannelStrip 3.
In order to celebrate the release of the Production Bundle, Metric Halo is offering special pricing from 9/25/12 to 10/25/12; the Production Bundle and individual plug-ins are 25% off.
