Plugin Boutique Staff Picks - Alastair

BeatSkillz are building an impressive collection of powerful plugins, developing the Slam Series as a group of in-depth bus and master processing tools for the modern producer. Now with their third instalment, Slam XL, comes a channel strip emulation with an unparalleled level of sound quality.

Best Feature


Whether you’re looking to add subtle warmth or gritty distortion, Slam XL’s saturator can achieve the sound you’re looking for. Featuring 6 distinct saturation flavours modelled on various analog equipment, you can simply cycle through the different settings then use the Dry/Wet knob to dial in the desired level of saturation to your signal with maximum control. Everything is then efficiently fed back through a set of LED meters, allowing you to visually identify your desired signal levels.

Overall, Slam XL is an incredibly powerful and versatile channel strip plugin, providing every fundamental effect you need to sculpt, shape and slam your sounds to perfection.
