MB-5 Dynamix

Although many musicians love the sound and effect of multi-band compression, it would be fair to say that it isn’t the easiest form of signal processing to apply. With three or more bands of compression to deal with, each with it own discrete set of controls, it’s often tricky to keep a handle on what is and isn’t being compressed. Blue Cat Audio’s MB-5 Dynamix plug-in, though, is cleverly designed to be both sonically effective and visually informative, clearly borrowing from lessons learned developing the company’s popular Analysis Pack bundle. However, with a number of good multi-band compressors already on the market, does the MB-5 really offer something new and exciting?
