Add analog warmth and punch to your mixes
The Lindell Audio 6X-500 is a mono transformer-coupled preamplifier and passive two-band boost-only EQ. Its all-discrete design is based upon Lindell’s hybrid amplifier, providing smooth gain, creamy color, and heavy punch. Experiment with running vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, and overhead recordings through the 6X-500.

Clean up tracks
With a low-pass filter, high-pass filter, and the ability to boost high and low frequencies, the Lindell 6X-500 helps you sculpt the tone of recordings. Use it to add clarity to basses, reduce the harshness of hi-hats and guitars, as well as make vocals cut through your mix. By adjusting the slope of the low-pass and high-pass filters, it's possible to carefully remove undesirable sounds like low-end rumble without affecting midrange content.

A Faithful emulation with extra features
The 6X-500 plugin is a faithful emulation of the original hardware with a few extra features like optional high- and low-pass filters. Lindell's hardware unit contains a Pultec-style equalizer so you can expect the same type of musical processing from the 6X-500 plugin. There's also an Analog button that activates analog emulation elements like output transformer saturation, noise, and power supply unit hum.

    I always thought preamp emulations should sound like this. The 6X-500 makes any source sound better. Driving the preamp 'makes it sing' in a lovely way. Considering the flexible filters and Pultec… Read More
