Protools + MFX-Magma = great combination

Postby marcpl » Wed Feb 13, 2013 8:38 pm

hi,

if there are any other protools users out there, i have a tip/recommendation for you.

i just bought nomad factory's mfx-magma(multi-fx and vst chainer plugin) primarily to use with nebula and it works great. you can create nebula chains in magma and then print them using audiosuite. works like a charm and i don't have to worry about cpu load anymore.

plus, it's already available in aax format so it's protools 11 ready if you're planning on going that route.
and it's rumored that magma will eventually have an rtas chainer for when protools drops rtas support.

it's a bit pricey at $200 but it's been well worth it for me.

just wanted to share.

regards,
marco

So also can be used as a VST to RTAS/AAX adapter?

hey,

right now it has a built-in vst chainer (vst => aax)
and there's a rumor that a later version will have an rtas chainer (rtas = > aax) so that you can still use your rtas plugins that aren't being ported to aax.

i don't know if the rumor is true but i hope it is.

goes to show that if you love nebula you'll spend any amount of money to be able to keep using it. for me $200 is a small price to pay to stay nebulized.

best,
marco

How is this working out for people using PT11? Any thoughts on this compared to the Blue Cat MB-7 solution (which is about 1/2 the price?

Magma and MB-7 still have problems with PT 11 and nebula

Thanks for the reply.

Others having good results with Magma? Worth the investment?
