McDSP APB at SEC

We’re very proud that McDSP chose SEC as their hardware partner for Switzerland. McDSP’s APB (Analog Processing Box) brings true high-end analog compression in your Pro Tools, Logic or Cubase with full digital control at a fraction of the price of dedicated outboard gear.

Instead of paying for one sound, PSU, AD/DA, pots, DAW I/Os, etc., you get a fully integrated, real analog processing and myriad of sound flavours in a sleek thunderbolt-connected 1RU unit.

“McDSP APB is back to the future” – Tommy Vetterli (Eluveitie, Coroner, Stephan Eicher)
