DSP Manager

music production knowledge

DSP Manager is a loudspeaker management system plug-in that has been designed and created y Digital Brain Instruments. DSP Manager is a 64-bit standalone plug-in that manages loudspeaker systems for live events giving you the ability to manage complex systems either in a 2-way or 3-way configuration using your computer. DSP Manager would find its place at concerts, conferences, venues or any kind of live event that requires the use of loudspeaker systems and its management or the routing of different audio sources in different spaces.

The plug-in allows you to manage robust and complex loudspeaker systems using your computer with a soundcard, midi controllers and VST au plug-ins instead of a physical DSP hardware unit that would feature crossover filters. The unit can handle 4 stereo input channels and each channel to a -20dB pad, and forget about clipping and distortion because the soundcard inputs are passed through its built-in brick-wall limiter. Its processing modes cover a 2-way crossover, a 3-way crossover and a Matrix 3rd order Butterworth crossover filters.

It features 4 stereo audio output channels and each channel includes a build-in brick-wall limiter that avoids clipping and distortion as mentioned before. Each of the output channels features a 5-band parametric EQ, HPF, LPF, delay compensation and 4 VST UA plug-in sections. For recording WAV or AIFF files depending on your soundcard, the recording source selection goes up to 192kHz at 32 bits. With a loaded preset manager, you can store and then recall the complete session data so you don’t lose what you were working on. You can control the DSP Manager plug-in via your MIDI device in combination with several keyboard shortcuts that will make your life much easier and make your workflow much faster.

To use the plug-in you will need a Mac with OSX 10.7 or later with a minimum of 2GB of Ram. For Windows computers, you will need Windows 7 or later with the same characteristics.
