The Channel Strip EQ is based on a vintage 1970s hardware EQ that's simple but effective, so you can tweak your sound with ease. Switch the high-pass filter to the compressor sidechain for aggressive compression without pumping.


With parameters tuned by legendary mixer Bob Clearmountain, the compressor provides foolproof gain reduction with only the most important controls. Parallel compression is easy with the included Mix knob.


Give your sound the final touch with variable saturation levels, from subtle volume boost to crisp and exciting to full crush.
