Analog Channel emulates the sounds of high-end analog tape machines, tape, and channel amplifiers.
Analog Channel is 2 plug-ins:
• AC1 - Emulates analog channel amplifier circuits
• AC2 - Emulates analog tape machines
Both in mono and stereo versions.
The AC1 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 AC2 configuration emulates analog tape machines. In addtiion to standard tape machine parameters such as bias, playback speed, and IEC1/2 equalization, AC2 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.
• Library of presets emulating analog mixing systems • Real-time display of saturation curves and calibrations • Analog Saturation Modeling • Double precision processing • Ultra low latency • Mono and stereo versions
Channel G delivers the big board sound with unprecedented flexibility.
Channel G is four plug-ins:

All Channel G configurations feature calibration modes for music, post production, and models of the world’s most popular analog mixing desks. The Channel G interfaces seamlessly integrate with the Digidesign D-Control and D-Command control surfaces.
The Channel G Surround Compressor / Limiter operates on 5.1 channels using 4 compressors sets – LR, C, LsRs, and LFE. These compressor sets can key from any combination of the LR, C, LsRs, and LFE channels. Individual compressor controls can be linked across various surround channels, and the LFE channel includes an optional low pass filter.

CompressorBank is a high-end compressor plug-in designed to emulate the sounds of vintage and modern compressors, while delivering complete control of dynamic compression.
CompressorBank is four plug-ins:
• CB1 – basic compression • CB2 – compression with pre-filtering • CB3 – compression with pre-filtering and static/dynamic EQ • CB4 – emulations of six of world’s most popular compressorsIn addition to the standard threshold and ratio controls, the actual shape and response of the compression curve can be adjusted with the Knee and BITE controls. Flexible compression control is complimented with pre-filtering and post-compression EQ.
• Compression curve modeling • Multiple peak detection circuits • Static and Dynamic EQ • Side chain support and pre-filtering options • Analog Saturation Modeling • Double precision processing • Ultra low latency • Mono and stereo versions
FilterBank is a high-end equalizer plug-in designed to emulate the sounds of vintage and modern equalizers and filters.

Common controls such as output (make-up gain), threshold, compression (ratio), attack, and release are provided. Non-standard Knee and BITE controls allow unique and unprecedented articulation of compression characteristics. Multiple peak detection circuit types provide flexibility only previously achieved by owning several compression units. Steep 24 dB/Oct crossover filters minimize signal leakage into adjacent compression bands.

ML4000 is two plug-ins:
• ML1 – mastering limiter • ML4 – multi-band Gate, Expander, and Compressor fed into the ML1 mastering limiter
The ML1 mastering limiter uses a flexible brick wall look-ahead design coupled with multiple stages of limiting for superior peak detection. The unique Knee and Mode controls allow the ML1 to handle any kind of material with a variety of responses ranging from transparent to aggressive. The ML4 crossover page shows the overall frequency response in real-time of the input, output, or total dynamics effect, on top of the graphically adjustable crossover frequencies.
The ML4 multi-band dynamics processor includes a 4-band Gate, Expander (upwards or downwards), and Compressor fed into the same limiter algorithm found in the ML1 . Each band’s Gate, Expander, and Compressor can be configured separately or linked together. Steep 24 dB/Oct crossover filters minimize signal leakage into adjacent bands. Multiple real-time metering options in each band allow quick visualization of all signal dynamics.
Accurate output adjustment is fast and simple with output ceiling control, large meters, and meter level text readouts.
