With the release of Media Composer 5, Avid opens up to the world of RTAS audio plug-ins, as you already might know from the Protools environment.
RTAS-compatibility means video editors can now use plug-ins from companies like Waves, Digidesign, Lawo, Universal Audio, Soundtoys, URS, Sonnox, Antares, Audio-Ease, etc.
