McDSP in Sunnyvale, Calif., is now shipping McDSP Version 5, which includes Audio Units (AU) support, the 6030 Ultimate Compressor and Classic Pack Next Generation. McDSP says that the V. 5 release will initially support Intel-Mac systems only running Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and 10.6 (Snow Leopard), and that a PowerPC version will be available in late December 2010, followed by a Windows version in Q1 of 2011. The PowerPC version will only support Pro Tools, and will not support the Audio Unit (AU) plug-in format.

McDSP will continue to offer its two main product lines: HD and Native. HD versions support TDM, RTAS, AudioSuite and Audio Units (AU) plug-in formats. Native versions support RTAS, AudioSuite, and Audio Units (AU) plug-in formats.

For a limited time, existing McDSP customers can upgrade each McDSP plug-in (HD or Native) to V. 5 for $29 per plug-in.

McDSP says that its Audio Units (AU) support is provided across its entire product line—excluding Chrome Tone, Synthesizer One and Project Studio—and that these products will continue to be available for Pro Tools only.

The new 6030 Ultimate Compressor is available individually for $449 HD or $249 Native, or as an upgrade to Emerald Pack V. 5 for $349 HD or $299 Native for Emerald Pack V. 4 customers.

The McDSP Classic Pack plug-in lineup has been updated in the V. 5 release. The Classic Pack Next Generation plug-ins include all new user interfaces and new features. McDSP's Pro Tools customers will receive support for the legacy versions of Classic Pack plug-ins.
