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.

If you own this plugin you can get the Lindell Channel X plugin for just $99. You can purchase it anytime in your MyAccount page.

  • I love this plugin!

    by Me
    Since the majority of my sounds are samples sourced from vinyl, this plugin is first in my chain for the filters alone to help eliminate or reduce any unwanted highs and lows. The variable slopes are… Read More
  • 6X-500

    by Peter Indenkämpen
    I use it almost on every channel together with the TE-100. You get a pleasant widening effect when using virtual instruments.
  • A must-have

    by Stereotactic
    A must-have for digital synths, plenty of colors depending on how hard you hit the input/out and with a beautiful sounding EQ.

    Me encanta los filtros HP LP muy suaves ,genial para dar caña en algún rango de frecuencias, aunque esto también puede ser peligroso.
