    While all Expanded units include the 2d processing bundle, you can add a +DSP license to your box at any time. Adding a +DSP license will allow you to take full advantage of the processing power of the DSP in your interface. The ease of inserting Plug-ins directly into mixer channels with the v.5 Console makes using +DSP a snap. If your 2d Expanded unit doesn't already include +DSP, you can add a license without any physical changes to your hardware.

    The +DSP license includes a variety of additional Plug-ins including Multi-band EQs, Compressor, Limiter, Distortion Processors, and many more. With the +DSP license, you also gain access to insertable graphs which allow you to build your own “Secret Weapon” processors — wrapped up, phase compensated graphs of Plug-ins that may be re-inserted on demand.

    “…Being able to use my own custom-built DSP environments, as an insert or send, anywhere in my signal chain, is beyond ridiculous.”

    “…In the studio, the new architecture connects my +DSP patches to any and all applications and hardware in new ways…”

    Finally, the +DSP license adds many bonus Plug-in Macros — insertable, pre-configured processors, including Guitar Amp Models, Guitar Processors, Parallel Compressors and Limiters, Mid/Side Mastering processors, Vintage-style reverbs and many more…

    “There are numerous new features that I'm excited about… Did I mention HaloVerb? Or the amp simulations? I have now switched almost entirely to summing my DP 5 projects in the MIO’s DSP mixer (it just sounds so damn good, combined with the great MIO EQ and dynamics Plug-ins)…”

    Getting a demo

    Getting a demo of +DSP is simple- open MIO Console, go to the "Manage Licenses" window and request a demo. A 30 day license will be installed in your interface!

    System-wide +DSP Licensing

    MIO Console v.5 automatically extends the +DSP license on any attached box to all 2d Expanded boxes attached to your system while the boxes are attached. What this means is that you can use any +DSP Plug-in or macro on any box in your system, as long as at least one +DSP licensed box is attached. If you need to store +DSP Plug-ins in persistent states or tend to split your boxes into multiple systems, you will need to license each box that needs to use the +DSP license independently.

    Tutorial Movies

    We've put together a number of movies to help you get started with +DSP; they can be found in the menu on this page, or on the technotes page where they can be downloaded.
