Great sounding; low-end punch without killing the mix busting your ears.
Within about 30 minutes, and after reading the manual, this thing knocked my socks off. There were two other reviews here that mentioned voice over, and that might seem a basic task for a spaceship control center like this, but I immediately was able to do things I'd never been able to do before. U87 midrange honk was so easily cured; downward expansion fixed residual noise (you see it working along with the compressor in the lower right!); the De-esser is fantastic with its listen function, and really effective. Separate enable toggles on each section are really helpful. For this purpose, and I have others, the EQ section is enormously flexible and sounds great. I didn't buy a channel strip, I bought a console! This is a work of art.
Desde que me suscribí a MEGA he descubierto grandes plugins que son increíbles, pero ninguno me había cambiado tanto la vida como este. Es INCREÍBLE, ha cambiado mis mezclas de manera radical, devolviendo la vida a mezclas e instrumentos que sonaban muertos y que no era capaz de revivir. Me alucina especialmente como funciona en las guitarras!, les da una vida y un color que no he conseguido con ningún plugin. Como dicen los sajones, A MUST HAVE. 5 estrellas y porque no hay mas!!!
It really does sound and performs like the console, I took notice the instant I engaged it. There is just something magical about having access to the console that began with a collaboration between Neve and George Martin who produced the Beatles throughout their entire career.
My first bx_console purchase and what a difference it makes. Like many, I was using Waves console plugins. Very good, but not like this. All the positive words about this console are true - big, open, clear, flexible, historic, etc. I am not a trained audio guy, but now I sound like one. I don't say the lightly. My mixes are different now, better and more focused. People notice the sound and when I show them my 'humble' studio, I am not sure they believe what they are hearing out of the speakers was created in it, but it was. :) Thanks Dirk!
With this inserted on all channels what a huge difference. i’m loving this channel strip. Perfect addition to my selection of channel strips and soon to be my go to. Great job bx.
This channel strip has a very clear sound, more clear than the SSL plugins. Depending on which project we're doing, this plugin is used. Let's say more easy listening music. The EQ section is perfect. If it has to be more dirty we use the SSL 9000J. And the refreshing colors are also a great on this channel strip.
My favorite channel strip after the SSL E console. Has the same kind of subdued brilliance, with a smooth and sleek character, but a little more neutral than the SSL. The 3rd EQ band is a blessing. And the compressor is one of my favorites. Wish the preamp was emulated, too.

When working in the box Focusrite SC is my to go channel strip and it sits on every channel, I even built and map dedicated midi controller just for this plugin, rarely there is a need to add another plugin in the chain to shape the sound. It just sounds great, very silky and sweet.
