Analog Channel HD

Channel Strip by McDSP

“Crank the input and the drive for some saturated goodies. I find it very useful on aggressive vocals but it can, of course, be used on just about anything from drums to synths to guitars to balalaikas.”

Analog Channel emulates the sounds of high-end analog tape machines, tape, and channel amplifiers.

Analog Channel is 2 plug-ins:

  • AC101 – Emulates analog channel amplifier circuits
  • AC202 – Emulates analog tape machines

The AC101 configuration acts as a digital pre-amp allowing even excessive amounts of gain without digital distortion. A drive control determines where the audio “sits” in the saturation/compression region, and even the attack and release times of the distortion character are adjustable.

The AC202 configuration emulates analog tape machines. In addition to standard tape machine parameters such as bias, playback speed, and IEC1/2 equalization, AC202 offers controls well beyond the limits of the reel-world devices including adjustable low frequency roll off and head bump – independent of playback speed. The user can select from several playback head types, tape formulations, and even control the tape saturation recovery time.
