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

Testimonials

    “I was turned onto Metric Halo ChannelStrip way back in the late 1990s, when I first started using Pro Tools,” said Sneap. “A friend suggested that if I liked the SSL sound, I’d like Metric Halo ChannelStrip. He was right, and it has since become absolutely essential to the way I mix. Truly, every single mix that I have completed in the last fourteen years used Metric Halo ChannelStrip. There are no exceptions.”
    Musician/Engineer/Producer Andy Sneap is a founding member of the heavy metal band Sabbat and has worked with acts such as Exodus, Machine Head, Napalm Death, and Kreator. He received Grammy nominations for his work with Killswitch Engage and Megadeth.
