Plugin channel strips
UAD SSL E Channel Strip | £189
Emulating the EQ and dynamics capabilities of SSL’s classic E Series mixing consoles is no mean feat but UAD’s revised plugin does this extremely accurately.
Softube Tube-Tech Classic Channel | £169
Great for processing, this combines the ‘Pultec’ style PE 1C, the midrange ME 1B equaliser and the Opto, tube-emulated CL 1B compressor.
Slate Digital Virtual Console Collection | £78
This allows you to pass your signals through the emulated topology of a number of classic consoles, from Neve, API, Trident and SSL.
iZotope Neutron | €119
Marketed for ‘mixing’, but Neutron has the capability of a fully-spec’d virtual channel strip. Classic EQ and dynamic modules are flanked by a transient designer and an exciter.
Waves EMI TG12345 Channel Strip | $33
Modelled on the TG series consoles EMI built for Abbey Road studios, you’ll find character aplenty in the modules offered here.
UAD Neve 88RS
With a similar control set and layout to the SSL E Channel Strip, this UAD emulation brings the warmth and flexibility of Neve’s classic console to your recording and mixing stages.
