Avid Launches Pro Series AAX Plug-ins

izotope-logoAt the 2013 Winter NAMM Show, Avid announced the launch of its Pro Series line of AAX Native and AAX DSP plug-ins, featuring three new advanced processors: Pro Compressor and Pro Expander (available now), along with Pro Limiter (coming soon) for the AAX platform.

Avid’s Pro Series plug-ins work with AAX DSP and AAX Native systems, including Pro Tools|HDX, Pro Tools|HD Native, and any system using Pro Tools 10 and higher software.

All three plug-ins offer advanced features:

  • Pro Limiter enables the user to maximize the loudness of any mix, without distortion or harshness.
  • Pro Compressor is a compressor based on the Avid System 5 console and Channel Strip plug-in (which is bundled with Pro Tools 10 software), enabling the user to shape sounds, and enhance tracks
  • Pro Expander is also based on the Avid Channel Strip plug-in, designed for imparting mixes with more energy, gate noise, and duck signals. It offers some unique elements not found in Pro Compressor


The new Avid Pro Compressor and Pro Expander AAX plug-ins are available now for $99 (USD) in the online Avid Store and at Avid resellers worldwide. Pro Limiter will be available soon.
