It looks like Vengeance will be adding a Multiband Compressor to their line of plugins. The Mastering Suite will be the third plugin next to Metrum: Kick Synthesizer VSTi and Vengeance Producer Suite: Multiband Sidechain plugin. Priced at 149 Euro the new Mastering Suite will be available for Windows and Mac, however no RTAS and PowerMac versions will be available. For activation of the software a (syncrosoft) dongle protection USB device is needed.
