The Lindell ChannelX is more than just a normal channel strip.

It is a virtual collection of 3 amazing Lindell units, the 7X-500 limiter, the PEX-500 EQ and the 6X-500 preamp. They are all contained in one cool virtual 500 frame, which lets you use any or all of these modules, and you may even arrange the order of the plugins freely in the frame!

Start off with the 6X-500 preamp to add a bit of punch and color, then add some tasty vintage 1176-style FET compression with the 7X-500 limiter, and top it off with some Pultec inspired PEX-500 EQ. Nice!

If you own one of the contained plugins already, you can upgrade at a discounted price to this full 500 frame Channel X plugin (including all 3 processors) from your User Account (automated process).

    This is, in all key aspects, an incredible tool. I already wrote quite a bit about it in another post above. I do wish, however, that is had an output level control. The types of processing that this… Read More

    Ok, pulled up a SEQ and added this to a Trilian bass seq....Wow! The fullness of the bass was immediately what I have been trying to get with other plugins...

  • The Channel Strip for people who don't like channel strips

    by midmodman
