Metric Halo ChannelStrip For GarageBand - Electronic Delivery – No Longer Available

Put a million-dollar console in your GarageBand
MFR# CSGBX

Product Description

ChannelStrip from Metric Halo is a multi-processor plug-in developed to provide the sound and feel of an analog mixing console. It offers high audio quality, DSP and CPU efficiency, and a comprehensive user interface that allows users to work with a Digital Audio Workstations as efficiently and interactively as they would with a dedicated mixing console.

The plug-in features eight bands of EQ, six main and two for use on the dynamics-section sidechain. The six parametric bands of the EQ are capable of deep notches and steep resonant peaks. Uses include finding "space" for individual instruments within a mix, or for re-tuning drums after they have been recorded.

The dynamics section of the ChannelStrip includes both an expander/gate and a separate compressor. The expander/gate is most useful when working with microphone-recorded sources. It provides an automatic gain-riding feature that mutes the input or track when the audio level is too low, as in the case of a noisy guitar amplifier, for example.

The compressor also provides an automatic gain-riding feature, but instead of changing the gain when the signal falls below a certain threshold, the compressor lowers the gain when the signal level is high. This allows the compressor to even out the dynamics of a performace and pull out low-level detail from the source material.

A delay function allows for time-aligning tracks that are part of a multi-microphone recording. In designing the plug-in, emphasis was placed on maintaining pristine sound with low CPU overhead, along with providing a user friendly interface for impoved workflow.

Features:

  • Six-band EQ with six filter types and 2.5 octave bandwidth, 20 Hz to 22 kHz
  • Peaking/parametric, high cut, low cut, low shelf, high shelf, and band-pass filters
  • Compressor with ratio, attack, release control, and post EQ option
  • Compressor has EQ dependant sidechain input
  • Gate/expander with detector level meter, threshold, attack and release control
  • Peak metering is available with clip indicators, as is metering on the compressor and gate
  • Includes over 115 presets
  • Functions within host software that supports Audio Units, MAS, RTAS, VST or AudioSuite plug-in formats

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
