The McDSP 6050 Ultimate Channel Strip plug-in has 25+ modules – everything you need to make your mix sound great. All the modules from the award-winning 6020 Ultimate EQ and 6030 Ultimate Compressor plug-ins are included. Additional modules include gates, expanders, signal saturators, and specialized filters.
The 6050 Ultimate Channel Strip has input and output stages, wrapped around 3 module bays in which any of the over 25 modules can be inserted. Easily drag and drop any module to rearrange the signal flow of your channel strip. A module selector panel allows quick auditioning of equalizers, compressors, and additional effects. Like the original 6020 and 6030 plug-ins, each new module in the 6050 draws on classic and modern designs over the last four decades. Operation is simple and intuitive, and the sound quality is what professionals worldwide have come to know in McDSP plug-ins.
The 6050 Ultimate Channel Strip EQ modules best suited for vocal and dialog applications include the E300/301, British E, Moo Q, and EZ Q.
The EQ ’76, FRG EEE and E357 modules are great for drums, like their compressor modules counterparts.
Any of the 6050 modules are good for keyboards, guitar, and other instruments. It’s hard to screw up a track with the E300/301 modules.
