About This Listing

McDSP APB-16 Analog Processing Box

The McDSP APB-16 Analog Processing Box is a revolutionary programmable analog processor that combines the convenience of digital signal processing with the incomparable sonic quality of premium analog components. Control up to 16 channels using an intuitive Pro Tools plug-in for a familiar digital workflow with true analog sound.


The Analog Processing Box comes with an array of powerful signal processors, including compressors, mastering-grade limiters, transient enhancers, multi-channel processing and more. Each plug-in routes audio to the groundbreaking APB hardware device, where it’s processed by authentic analog components. And just like any other plug-in, you can save your settings as a preset, automate parameters, and recall sessions in an instant. Finally, the solution to analog recalls is here!

Compatible with macOS and Pro Tools 12.x or later, the APB-16 lets you turn your computer into a world-class analog recording studio. Process tracks with sample-accurate automation using state-of-the-art 32-bit digital audio converters.


The APB-16 includes six cutting-edge dynamics processors. The C673-A compressor is based on McDSP’s C670 and C671 modules from the McDSP 6000 series with a custom saturation circuit.

The Moo Tube compressor delivers soft, warm tube compression based on decades of software modeling. The El Moo tube limiter uses a similar design with an adjustable all-analog saturation stage.

The Chickenhead compressor offers a one-of-a-kind compression algorithm that utilizes high-end analog components and aggressive saturation for a punchy, plucky sound.

The L-18 limiter offers pristine analog limiting perfect for any genre. Whether you need heavy peak limiting, subtle bus compression, or surgical transient shaping, the L-18 is your new go-to limiter. And if you’re looking for a versatile compressor, the C-18 is packed with powerful features. Based on McDSP’s classic CompressorBank plug-in, the C-18 features an upgraded BITE control. An advanced AUTO feature offers program-dependent response times, making the C-18 a solid choice for individual channels, bus compression, or even parallel processing.
