Introducing Channel G, a sophisticated console strip featuring an Expander/Gate, Compressor/Limiter, Equalizer, and Filters. Modes for music and post production are available alongside models of the worlds most popular analog mixing desks. Additionally, Channel G includes a powerful surround Compressor/Limiter configuration consisting of LR, C, LsRs, and LFE compressor sets. Each Compressor/Limiter can key from any of the ‘comp sets’ and may be linked in a variety of ways to suit any surround application.
The G Dynamics section uses ultra-high resolution level-detection to give accurate handling of the most complex material. The Expander/Gate has adjustable range and threshold controls as well as a continuous ratio for the most detailed edits. The Compressor/Limiter also has a continuous ratio control and is complemented by a knee control offering choices to smooth the transition into the compression region as well as between the modeled console dynamics processors. Attack times can be as fast as 0.01 msec for instant compression action (i.e. one sample at sample rates under 100 kHz). The G Dynamics section also offers high and low pass filters with selectable slopes of 6, 12, 28, and 24 dB/Oct. In addition to being fully sweep-able across the entire audible spectrum, these filters have a notch mode with four notch variants.
The G Equalizer section offers five bands of parametric EQ with switchable-shelving and gain ranges of +/- 18dB. The five bands of parametric/shelving EQ are complimented by two flexible filters identical to those found in the G Dynamics section. Like all Channel G configurations, the G Equalizer section control layout matches exactly to the center section of the Digidesign ICON control surface and supports sample rates as high as 200 kHz in Pull Up.
A channel-strip style configuration called G Console combines the functionality of G Dynamics and G Equalizer into a single plug-in. In this configuration, Channel G can faithfully reproduce both the response and control calibrations of the most sought after analog mixing desks. These models are easily accessed directly from the console selector in the G Equalizer section and the knee control in the G Dynamics section.The Surround Compressor's control matrix allows the user to page select and set the key signal for each compressor individually, as well as set master and link options from a single source.
The green circle lights along the bottom show which compressors are engaged. The little green "L" lights show that compressor as linked. The little yellow "M" light show that center channel compressor is the master. The illuminated Ls Rs button shows what page you are on, or in this case that the compressor controls are now operating the Left Surround Right Surround Compressor. The blue LR and C lights next to the key label let you know that the Left Surround Right Surround Compressor is now keying off the LR & Center channels. Each channel can key of any other channel in the matrix.
To help illustrate the seemingly endless signal path combination Channel G included and interactive signal path flow chart that updates in real time to setting and routing changes. This window helps underscore the extremely flexibility of Channel G's architecture.
Features: • All configurations can read each others settings, using only pertinent control data • 5.1 Comp can link any of the 4 compressors (LR, C, LsRs, LFE) to one master • Supports up to 192 kHz sample rates
Channel G is compatible with both Mac OS 10.4.x and Windows XP.
Channel G is available in the TDM configuration only.
Pro Tools™ 7.x or higher is required for TDM, LE, and M-Powered systems. Additionally, a Third Party software application that supports the Digidesign TDM, RTAS, or AudioSuite plug-in Standard may be supported.
Note: Requires iLok for authorization (sold separately).
