Softube - Summit Audio Grand Channel (Console 1 Expansion/Standalone)
The channel strip that always works. Take any track, any bus or any mix - the Summit Audio Grand Channel always sounds right.
The Grand Channel combines the warm and smooth tone sculpting EQF-100 passive equalizer with the rich sounding and dead-easy-to-use TLA-100A compressor. As a modern addition to the classic TLA-100A, the plug-in also includes Parallel Compression, Saturation Control and Low Cut Filtering on input or detector.
Easy user interface with four panels. One equalizer unit, one compressor unit expanded with controls for saturation, low cut and parallel compression, and finally a signal routing panel.
Use the smooth and flexible Summit Audio EQF-100 for your equalizing needs. Features four bands of equalization, low and high cut filters and modeled output distortion. More info about the Summit Audio EQF-100.
TLA-100A Tube Leveling Amplifier
The dead easy and smooth one-knob Summit Audio TLA-100A compressor. It's the "set-and-forget" compressor and has been around for over a quarter of a century.
TLA-100A Extra features
The original design has been expanded with an additional panel featuring controls for sidechain filtering, saturation and parallel compression. More info about the Summit Audio TLA-100A.
Bypass and Routing Panel
Bypass any unit to save CPU. Route the EQ before the compressor (the old school way) or the other way around (modern).
