Chapter 13. Adding Effects to a Mix > What Is a DSP Plug-in?

What Is a DSP Plug-in?

A DSP (digital signal processing) plug-in is software that lets you add effects such as reverb, compression, and EQ to audio signals within the Pro Tools environment. Pro Tools LE supports the following DSP plug-ins:

Real-Time AudioSuite (RTAS): RTAS plug-ins use your computer’s CPU to process audio non-destructively in real-time (Figure 13.1). The plug-ins don’t change the original audio file saved on disk; effects are applied only during playback or when bouncing to disk. You can, however, monitor effects on audio tracks while recording. Pro Tools LE ships with Digidesign’s DigiRack RTAS plug-ins.
