The SSL E-Channel delivers the incomparable sound of the Solid State Logic 4000-series console’s all-discrete design and its Class A, VCA chip. It’s a slice of the world’s greatest hitmaking machine, in your computer.
The equalization section of the SSL E-Channel is based on the renowned Black Knob equalizer, developed in 1983 with legendary producer George Martin. It features a High Pass Filter, Low Pass Filter, and a four-band parametric equalizer.
Transient shapers are used by top mix engineers to either crank up or soften the transients of instruments, emphasizing either the attack or sustain. However, traditional transient shapers work on the whole signal at once, modulating the whole frequency range when the transient snap is only happening in one band.
Punctuate uses a model of the human ear to run a set of transient shapers across the whole spectrum of human hearing. This allows you to tailor the attack of a whole range of instruments, busses, and whole mixes without messing with the entire frequency range. The result is unparalleled transient shaping power focused where you need it, and not where you don’t.
Simply named “Compressor”, the stock compressor in Logic Pro X is a standard AU plugin that is included when you purchase Logic Pro X.
Often, we producers are encouraged to resort to third-party VST compressor plugins. These can be expensive (but don’t have to be, check out out favorite free compressor plugins here), especially if you’re looking at top-of-the-line hardware modeled compressor plugins with extra warmth and color. While our DAW’s stock tools are great for mixing, they are often designed to be “transparent”, so won’t add any extra sonic mojo.
Building on a 17-year legacy, Ozone 9 brings balance to your music with the latest advances in machine learning for mastering audio.
Now with EQ scaling, you can quickly add or remove intensity in your tone without changing the shape of your EQ curve. With Ozone Pro, you get this exciting feature, any future Ozone updates, and much, much more!
The API 2500 is a versatile dynamics processor that lets you shape the punch and tone of mixes with absolute accuracy. Its dual channel design lets the 2500 also function as two separate mono channels via a single compression setting. Using auto-makeup gain, you can adjust Threshold or Ratio while automatically maintaining a constant output level. With both “feed back” and “feed forward” compression types, the API 2500 boasts a wide range of incredibly musical parameters which have made it a favorite of engineers the world over.
