"This plug-in sounds fantastic," notes David Hughes, a film sound effects
designer whose recent work includes 'Polar Express,' 'Shrek 2,' and 'The
Village.' "The compressor is one of the most flexible and powerful I've ever
used and can be pushed extremely hard with negligible signal degradation.
The equalizer is extremely powerful and capable of surgical problem fixes as
well as musical or tonal sweetening. Since I installed it I've gone into
ChannelStrip again & again, always finding what I needed. I can easily see
this being the first tool I go for when shaping a sound."
Metric Halo's ChannelStrip is the recognized leader in console-style channel
strip audio processing for Mac-based digital audio workstations. It was the
first plug-in to offer the combination of exceptional audio quality,
DSP efficiency and a comprehensive user interface that allows
native DAW users to work as efficiently and interactively as they would with
a dedicated, world-class mixing console. ChannelStrip is the critical mixing
tool for thousands of top engineers and producers worldwide.
