Your Sound, Your Way

MAAT’s stereo two-channel LINpro is your final link between production and delivery. Offering optional word length reduction and seven noise shaping spectra tailored to both analog and digital delivery of assets, LIN is highly adjustable to help create your own signature “sound.” In addition to TPD and weighted TPD, LINpro features four newly developed fifth, eighth and ninth order psychoacoustic noise shaping choices. As with all dithering mechanisms, LINpro must be the very last plugin instance, just prior to converting to the final, fixed-point format.

LINpro incorporates the latest advances in auditory and psychoacoustic research. Older, outdated dithering engines rely on decades-old approaches to the problem. MAAT evaluated their original LINearise engine and realized that they could “do it” even better, implementing a more accurate, mathematically superior approach plus new thinking on both the User Experience (UX) and how you want your master to sound. Whether you’re delivering a 16 bit Red Book dupe master, a 24 bit “high res” 88.2k file to today’s higher fidelity streaming services or multichannel 48k stems for video and motion picture surround work, LINpro will take you there with the best sounding tracks obtainable.
