MOTU MasterWorks Collection SoftwareThe MasterWorks Collection is an advanced audio plug-in bundle for Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Cubase, and other Mac OS X hosts that support RTAS, Audio Units, and VST3 audio plug-ins.
The bundle includes three masterfully crafted audio processors suitable for even the most critical and demanding mixing situations. Originally developed exclusively for Digital Performer, the MasterWorks series plug-ins have developed a reputation for their incredibly authentic analog hardware modeling, 32- and 64-bit internal floating point processing, and highly CPU-efficient performance. All three plug-ins support mono, stereo and surround channel configurations (with supporting host software), and users can share MasterWorks plug-in presets among different hosts.
Modeled British Analog EQInspired by legendary British console EQs, the MasterWorks EQ delivers the look, feel and sound of the most sought-after classic analog equalizers. Apply up to five bands of EQ filtering, each with four EQ types that provide popular modern EQ styles and vintage analog EQ styles alike. Two mid bands include shelf filtering. Now add two additional bands of variable slope low- and high-pass filtering. Click directly on the filter response display for total control and visual feedback of the EQ curve being applied. The MasterWorks EQ has been carefully crafted and meticulously engineered to produce satisfying, musical results in a wide variety of applications.
LevelerThe MasterWorks Leveler is an accurate model of the legendary Teletronix(TM) LA-2A optical leveling amplifier, known for its unique and highly sought-after Automatic Gain Control (AGC) characteristics. Conventional compression and limiting do not apply here: the heart of the LA-2A is the T4 opto-coupler, a photoelectric device with almost magical (signal dependent) self- adjusting behavior that has made the LA-2A the tool of choice for smoothing out just about any audio material, from vocals to bass guitar to full-program mixes, without destroying perceived dynamics. You get four models (eras), from Slow Vintage to Fast Modern.
ProVerbProVerb is a CPU-efficient convolution reverb that delivers the sound of stunningly realistic acoustic spaces to any track or mix. Convolution is a process where the characteristics of a real acoustic space, such as a concert hall, sound stage or cathedral, are "sampled" (captured) and then faithfully reproduced, down to the last detail and nuance. Known for its stunning realism, convolution reverb is widely considered to be the best type of reverb that money can buy. ProVerb delivers convolution reverb with CPU-efficient performance and real-time parameter adjustment. Dozens of acoustic spaces are included, or simply drag & drop any standard audio file to add your own.

Note for Digital Performer and AudioDesk users
NOTE:If you own Digital Performer (version 6 or later), you do not need to purchase the MasterWorks Collection because the Digital Performer-native MAS versions of these plug-ins are already included with DP. If you own Digital Performer version 5 or earlier, upgrade to the latest version of DP to obtain the MasterWorks Collection (MAS only).
If you own Digital Performer, but you would also like to use the MasterWorks plug-ins in other hosts such as Pro Tools, Logic, etc., then you need to purchase the MasterWorks Collection to obtain the RTAS, VST, and Audio Unit versions of the plug-ins.
If you own AudioDesk, you can either purchase the MasterWorks Collection (requires AudioDesk version 3.2 or higher), or you can upgrade to the latest version of Digital Performer.
