This is not your grandfather’s ChannelStrip… ChannelStrip 3, the newest version Metric Halo's best-selling and most feature rich plugin, is the recognized leader in console style channel strip audio processing for digital audio workstations. As the first plug-in to offer the combination of exceptional audio quality, incredible DSP efficiency and a comprehensive user interface, ChannelStrip lets users work as efficiently and interactively as they would with a dedicated, world-class mixing console.   

As a signal processing bundle ChannelStrip integrates everything you need to process the channels that make up a mix as well as process the entire mix bus.  Featuring an Expander, Compressor, multi-band EQ, and a limiter, ChannelStrip provides a unified interface for processing your tracks. It also includes phase invert, channel delay, comprehensive metering and SpectraFoo™ spectrum analysis - so you can see your audio as well as you can hear it.  ChannelStrip is an essential tool for every project.

 

Metric Halo ChannelStrip 3 Features:

Character is a plug-in that lets you add the luscious distortion characteristics of classic analog circuits to your source tracks. To create Character, Metric Halo asked top flight tracking, mixing and mastering engineers to send them their favorite analog hardware; the mic pres, DIs and EQs that they used for recording, mixing and mastering. MH then used SpectraFoo to measure the ways that these processors add lovely, gooey analog distortion to the sound run through them and modeled this distortion using Metric Halo’s proprietary +DSP technology.

Character provides over 20 different models, incorporating the sound of tubes, transformers and solid state devices. Character has a Drive control (and autodrive) to allow you to push the distortion even harder for over-the-top sound mangling.

MH ChannelStrip

Put a Million Dollar Console in your DAW


ChannelStrip is like having the channel strip section of a large format console - with a few awesome Metric Halo twists!

As a signal processing bundle ChannelStrip integrates everything you need to process the channels that make up a mix as well as process the entire mix bus.

Featuring an Expander, Compressor, multi-band EQ, and a limiter, ChannelStrip provides a unified interface for processing your tracks. It also includes phase invert, channel delay, comprehensive metering and SpectraFoo™ spectrum analysis - so you can see your audio as well as you can hear it.

ChannelStrip is an essential tool for every project.

Grammy Award-Winning Mix Engineer Jeff Juliano says, “ChannelStrip is so good that I often disable an analog send that isn’t doing the job in favor of ChannelStrip. The dynamics are reactive and the equalizer has air and warmth. ChannelStrip is useful both as an enhancement for tracks that are decent to begin with and as an emergency repair for tracks that have big problems. It’s a one-stop shop, and there’s a reason why it’s still an industry standard after well over a decade on the market.”

Grammy Award-Winning Mix Engineer and Producer Serban Ghenea says, “I’d attempt to compare it to other similar plug-ins, but the truth is I only use ChannelStrip. To me, ChannelStrip together with Pro Tools is the console.”

Like so many #1 Hit Mix Engineers, Billy Decker finds ChannelStrip indispensible. He says, “I once found myself in a situation without ChannelStrip, and I tried to mix anyway. It didn’t work. The mix sounded terrible, and I won’t ever try it again. ChannelStrip is absolutely indispensible to everything I do.”

Grammy Award-Winning Mix Engineer Richard Furch says that, for example, if he finds that he’s losing a particular instrument in the mix, he enables the compressor with his preset parameters and the auto gain make up “lifts out the sound of the mix a bit.” He continued, “I used to do that when I mixed on SSL consoles, but no other plug-in – not even SSL emulators – could replicate that trick quite this way and keep the gain exactly steady. ChannelStrip does. In addition, I often employ the high-pass filter on the compressor side chain and then lower the cut-off frequency to get more compression. It’s like a second threshold control, but it has its own, uniquely musical effect.”

Find out why so many top Engineers say that ChannelStrip is the one plugin they literally cannot live without.

MH Character

A bucket full of old school goodness.....


 

Character is a plug-in that lets you add the luscious distortion characteristics of classic analog circuits to your source tracks. To create Character we asked top flight tracking, mixing and mastering engineers to send us their favorite analog hardware; the mic pres, DIs and EQs that they used for recording, mixing and mastering. We then used SpectraFoo to measure the ways that these processors add lovely, gooey analog distortion to the sound run through them and modeled this distortion using our proprietary +DSP technology.

Character provides over 20 different models, incorporating the sound of tubes, transformers and solid state devices. Character has a Drive control (and autodrive) to allow you to push the distortion even harder for over-the-top sound mangling.

As Ed Abbott of Universal Mastering says, “Character is so cool, because it has all of the good stuff and none of the bad. Who ever heard of noiseless, phase coherent non-linear distortion? To the best of my knowledge it's never been done!” And Rob Caggiano (Guitarist for Anthrax, producer and engineer) adds, “I tended to use the ‘Classic British’ character setting on the ULN-8’s mic pres, quite a bit. It just sounds awesome! It gave the guitars and vocals exactly the tone I was looking for, and it even delivered an aggressive sound for a conga percussion riff!”

“It’s like having this cool little analog desk – it’s digital, but you can put Character on it.” - Charlie Pilzer, Grammy Award Winning Mastering Engineer and Musician.
