More About The Free HOFA 4U Plug-in
In this tutorial Mike shows just one part of this feature strong free plug-in from HOFA, the MS Decoder. It is also an EBU R128 loudness meter. You could insert this plug-in ahead of a plug-in that you would like to process 'post fade' but normally can't because all inserts on Pro Tools tracks are pre-fade except for the Master track. With the free HOFA 4U plug-in ahead of the 'post fade' plug-in, automate the fader in the 4U plug-in instead of the fader on the Pro Tools track, job done!
You can also use the 4U plug-in on your Master track and use the Stereo / Mono switch to check mono compatibility and don't forget that you can resize the plug-in window, something you rarely find on a free plug-in.
