Channel strip plugins & TMT console emulations for music production

Plugin Alliance’s channel strip plugins recreate the sound of popular hardware consoles used for recording, mixing, and mastering. Choose a channel strip VST and add it to all your tracks to recreate the experience of working with a hardware console. Each channel strip plugin includes modules like a preamp, EQ, compressor, gate, limiter, and total harmonic distortion (THD), allowing you to sculpt your mix with analog vibes. Streamline your mixing workflow and reduce CPU load by minimizing the number of plugins in your project. Hear the subtle width and dimension that Brainworx’s patented Tolerance Modeling Technology (TMT) brings to your mixes, emulating the channel-to-channel variations of a real hardware console.

All the best console channel strip plugins including channel strips of SSL, API, and NEVE consoles

 

Each of Plugin Alliance’s channel strip plugins delivers a different sound, ranging from clear and focused to rich and silky. You’ll hear the most noticeable differences when using extreme plugin settings. For example, applying a 6 dB boost at 2,000 Hz can add “bite” to a snare using one channel strip, whereas the wider bandwidth and saturation applied by another channel strip may lead to a fatter sound.

The Lindell Audio 50 Series emulates an API console, providing a tight, defined tone. It lets you choose between three classic EQs (50A, 50B, or 60) and two compressors (VCA or FET). API is an American company and is often synonymous with a US production style due to the popularity of these consoles throughout the United States.

Across the pond, Neve is a British company known for creating consoles with a warm and creamy quality. The Lindell Audio 80 Series emulates the sound of the original Neve 1073 and 1084 preamp/EQs, the 2254 limiter/compressor, and the 1272 line amplifier. It yields smooth and musical results, making it perfect for classic rock, jazz, and orchestral music.

The big, deep, and clear sound of the Solid State Logic 9000 series consoles has been improved upon by the bx_console SSL 9000 J. It includes an extended bottom end, a cleaner, more open top end, and additional distortion-free headroom. Used to create some of the biggest pop, hip-hop, and R&B recordings of the 1990s and 2000s, SSL 9000 series consoles have been used by artists like Beyoncé, Britney Spears, Jay-Z, and Madonna.

One of Plugin Alliance’s most unique channel strip plugins is the Brainworx bx_console AMEK 200. It combines the sound of the AMEK EQ 200, AMEK Mastering Compressor, and the gate/expander of the bx_console AMEK 9099. The bx_console AMEK 200 delivers a transparent, precise, and detailed sound ideal for acoustic and orchestral arrangements. Due to the complexities of integrating the components and the cost of creating a comparable console in real life, this analog-modeled dream can only exist in the box.

Plugin Alliance ensures its VST channel strip plugins are compatible with DAWs like Ableton Live, FL Studio, Logic Pro, Pro Tools, and Studio One. These channel strip plugins are regularly updated to maintain compatibility with the latest MacOS and Windows operating systems. Additionally, all of Plugin Alliance’s VST channel strips undergo extensive testing to guarantee stable performance within diverse production environments.
