VS-Series only though folks 20/09/05
Since Roland opened up it's V-Studio platform to third-party developers via the VS8F-3 effects expansion board, there've been a host of new plug-ins available. The latest of these is the Massenburg Hi Resolution Parametric EQ. Massenburg DesignWorks, headed by George Massenburg, the legendary engineer who not only introduced the parametric equalizer, but worked his magic on several seminal albums, provides advanced software and hardware tools, bringing sophisticated audio technology previously restricted to only the very high-end of the audio industry.
Roland Product Manager Vince LaDuca relates, "The plug-in, which take use of the Roland VS8F-3 processing card, is a four band, fully parametric equalizer that processes the audio at 88.2 KHz and 96 KHz, even if the audio is at lower rates. This provides a much more elegant result that doesnâ€™t suffer from the normal artifacts associated with standard techniques. The result is a more natural and pleasing sound that reminds users of great analog processing, only better."
"This marks the first time VS Users worldwide have access to the world
famous parametric EQ technology," says LaDuca. "We are thrilled to be able to supply our customers with this high-end EQ solution."
The new MDW Parametric EQ for Roland VS-Series is a Double Precision plug-in with unprecedented clarity, fast response, and superlative smoothness, especially in the high frequency audio spectrum.
To add plug-in processing to a V-Studio, users must purchase an optional
VS8F-3 Plug-In Effect Expansion Board and update their V-Studioâ€™s software.
The plug-ins will be immediately available for the popular, top-of-the-line
VS-2480-Series, VS-2400CD and the new VS-2000CD.
