TOWNSEND LABS ADDS AAX DSP SUPPORT TO SPHERE PLUG-IN

Townsend Labs is proud to announce that AAX DSP support is included in version 1.3 of the Sphere plug-in—the software component in the Sphere L22 microphone modelling system. Ever since its initial introduction, the Sphere plug-in has been available for all major native plug-in formats, as well as on Universal Audio’s UAD-2, Apollo and Arrow platform. With the addition of AAX DSP support in Sphere 1.3, owners of Pro Tools HDX systems can now enjoy perfect integration of the Sphere microphone into their existing DSP-based workflow, and monitor the over 20 included microphone models with near-zero latency while recording.
Since its debut in 2017, the Townsend Labs Sphere L22 has proved itself as a strong microphone modelling system. Its pioneering multi-dimensional modelling technology and unique dual-channel design take microphone modelling far beyond merely mimicking the static on-axis response of the original microphones. The Sphere L22 captures the spatial in-room behaviour of the original microphones, including transient response, harmonics, proximity effect, and three-dimensional polar response.
The Sphere L22 system is comprised of a dedicated, dual-channel microphone and its software counterpart, the Sphere plug-in. The plug-in currently includes over 20 models of coveted microphones—a collection which would be worth more than a hundred thousand dollars if it was ever up for sale, and to which new microphone models are regularly added. The microphone can be used with any preamp and any digital interface, and the Sphere plug-in is available for all major native plug-in formats as well as on Universal Audio’s UAD-2, Apollo and Arrow platform.
With version 1.3 of the Sphere plug-in, Townsend Labs adds support for AAX DSP, which means Pro Tools HDX owners can now use the microphone with near-zero latency in their existing workflow. This does not only make Sphere L22 an even more attractive choice for top-end music producers and high-end commercial studio facilities, but also for audio post and dialog recordists. As such, Sphere is the first and only microphone modelling system available for Pro Tools HDX.
