  • Channel X

    ★★★★☆

    Honestly at first, I wasn't thrilled with the GUI. There is something really backwards about it at first, til you figure out where the input and output gain controls are. Then you can kind of work your way around the thing. I know that other things matter more, but its difficult when I am concentrating on a sound to start thinking about where something that should be obvious would be. I would like a master output control. I think the one labeled "input" is actually an output with the config as it is. But importantly, it sounds really really good. The low boosts on this thing are really big. Tone just fills the speaker. Super high quality. The Pultec style EQ sounds more modern and hi fi to me than other emu's, which is very welcome. The 1176 is pretty flexible. The gainstage saturation controls are really good too, very useful bits for drying up flabby wet kicks or getting a rubbery snare to crack more.

    I don't particularly like channel strip plugins. I understand that they attempt to emulate an experience for audio engineers who are used to that type of workflow, but I have always found them constricting. THIS one, however, struck me differently. I ended up with 2 of the 3 components through sale prices before I demo'd it, and fell in love with the character and the sound out of the gate (no pun intended). I have other Pulteq/1176/610 type emulations, but this is my new favorite by far. Surprised at how much I enjoy and employ moving the elements around in the chain. It just "gets" me.
    Also, thanks to the sale prices, I got this all together for less than $50. SO happy with that. Compared to the other channel strip emulations here (and elsewhere) that I have tried, this is hands-down my favorite.

    I bought all the Lindell components separately but didn't have this rack to make them a channel strip. Thanks PluginAlliance for giving me Channel X for free.

    This plugin does amazing job with punch and clarity. The idea to save presets in one shoot and switching the routing of its devices makes it an irreplaceable tool for mixing.

    A very smooth, flexible, intuitive and easy to use high quality plugin. I find myself using this channel strip more frequently on a variety of projects and have even used it to replace other plugins on older projects that were deemed finished. I can achieve a subtle rich warmth with this combination of Pre-amp, Compressor and EQ without having to try very hard.
    Having all three elements contained in one insert window coupled with the ability to place them in any order is a real bonus, it results in quicker setup time and tweaking is made easier as everything is right there in front of you.
    A pleasure to use!
  • Lindell Audio ChannelX

    I love Lindell Audio products, I am constantly reaching for the 7x-500, or the PEX-500, or the 6X-500 or any combination for almost every track in a mix. I actually started with just the 7x-500 and loved it. It was my first Lindell purchase, then came the eq, which is one of my go to plugins. I should have purchased the ChannelX bundle right off the bat!! I do indie/americana music, so tend to lean to plugins that aren't totally transparent and add some analog feel to my tracks. The channelX is perfect because it has 3 of my favorite analog modeled plugins in one instantiation, boom, it makes tweaking so fast with 3 plugins right there. It hands down is my favorite for vocals, it just adds so much of the sound I am looking for. Down load the trial and see for yourself how great this setup really is, you won't be disappointed!
