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.

    Simple and very usable, it works great on anything that doesn't need surgery on the middle. Easy 5-slope filters handle the hi & lo cuts, and the boost options firm up the shoulders really nicely.… Read More

    It adds from soft texture to strong colour to the signal. The filters and equalizer are the first aid wich any take can need.

    I enjoy the 6X-500, and it is easy to dial in. It has a sweet comfortable sound to my ears. My eyes like it, too... but mostly my ears.
