A few days ago I was hired to undertake some mastering for a new client. Today was the release of the new and improved FabFilter Pro-L 2. I own all the products made my FabFilter, so was eligible for a 70% discount. An ideal opportunity to give it a whirl.
I have used original Pro-L on pretty much everything I worked on and was impressed with the update. There are some nice improvements. There is a new True Peak limiting mode with improved oversampling options. Display modes and metering have been improved, including loudness metering with support for the EBU R128, ITU-R BS.1770-4 and ATSC A/85 standards. Surround sound support has also been added including Dolby Atmos 7.1.2, although I am yet to try this out.
When the song is released I shall update this blog accordingly. In the meantime, if you would like to learn more about the FabFilter Pro-L 2 see the video below.
