Overview

Tobias Lindell took the experience he gained mixing and producing hit records and created a line of hardware audio products that became instant favorites with producers and engineers around the world. Now, some of Tobias’ favorite designs are available in plugin form.

The Lindell 6X-500 is a fantastic tool for cleaning up and adding a little extra punch to your tracks. The original 6X-500 hardware is a mono transformer-coupled preamplifier and passive 2 band, boost only EQ. The preamp’s all discrete design is based upon Lindell’s hybrid amplifier providing smooth, creamy gain and color.

The 6X-500 plugin is a faithful emulation of the original hardware with a few extra features like High and Low Pass filters and variable slopes thrown in. By twisting up the Gain knob a bit and dialing in a little bit more highs or lows, you can pull a track subtly out of the mix or push it right into your face.
