Postby quintosardo; Mon May 23, 2011 3:50 am StripBus - Console emulation bundle - Available Now

***EDIT
Now available
***

StripBus is a full console emulation set.
It has been developed by tests and measurements on analog consoles, taking into account input stage, EQ, saturation on channel strip and saturation, bus compressor (!) on main bus.

It includes two plugins:

"Strip":
- dual mode: "Tube channel", "Solid state"
- input stage saturation
- hipass, parametric mids, lowpass
- VU and peak combined metering (!)
- bypass-all menu for fast wet-dry comparison (bypasses all plugin instances from a single menu)

"Bus":
- dual mode: "Tube summing", "Solid state"
- stereo bus compressors (with oversampling)
- Low and high frequencies enhance controls
- Mid-side balanced compression
- Parallel compression
- Upward compression

The two plugins have been developed to work as a whole system, emulating a full analog console.

No need to say, it is the perfect complement to Roundtone multitrack tape emulation.

The whole bundle will be priced 29.99USD (MSRP)

Sounds very promising :) And a great price!

Potential "Quinto plug-in" of the year ;)

Does that mean your plugins work as a audio-signal send/receiver set?

VCC/Satson are 'distortion/sum' units where both send/receiver plugins don't transmit any audio signals but just plugin settings only (well VCC does).
Cowbells!

Yes, there is an internal link through strip plugin instances and main bus plugin.
This gives interaction through channels and summing bus.
An inter-channel ducking mode control could be added, too, we still have to decide if activate it or keep it simpler.

:shock: Thanks quintosardo, sounds very interesting! Yes for ducking! I'm looking out for this one.

Sorry to be a pain but I have anothe question: will there be only 1 mixbus plugin (main output) or could be multiple sub busses be created (by using a mixbus plugin for each bus seperately)? So for each strip plugin the receiver plugin needs to be selected?
Cowbells!

Actually n strips (or sub-busses) -> one master stereo bus.
Maybe a deeper system could be developed, still testing...

OMG you guys are blowing my mind. Of course I'm buying this just like Roundtone, Presence, and GTS-39. You make it too easy to hit the buy button.

Questions: oversampling? It would be great if, like The Glue, all your plugs supported a choice for realtime and a different choice for rendering.

Ah ah, we didn't want to make you addicted ;)

Yes, of course. There is 4x oversampling (2x in the picture is from first tests) with an option to activate it only while rendering. A bit like Roundtone (but with some differences between "STRIPbus, the strip unit, and stripBUS, the bus unit").
Very light on cpu, of course, because the concept would be to have it on every track or group.

Any idea when the AU versions of all plugs will be released?

Exciting times! Especially for those of us old enough to remember what it was like to mix on an analogue desk.

I remembered something funny this morning... In the seventies a lot of producers and engineers (Geoff Emerick, John Punter, Colin Fairley amongst others) used to like tracking on SSL but preferred mixing on a Neve. The reason was that the SSL was a very new design and seen as being very digital and clean sounding in comparison to the Neve which had a much warmer creamier sound. The mixing rooms (a very new concept at that time) at AIR studios were Neve.

Yes, the path of this technical evolution is incredible. We had hard times looking for "fidelity" (I'm from '65) and, when we got absolute fidelity (who asks for "hi-fi" today?) we missed something.
I'm not speaking about first digital editions (converters where limited and harsh), but of that "organic" thing.
The effort is to extract what was good (harmonics, interactions, ...) and avoid what was bad (noise, maybe?).
We'll get a nice imperfection/perfection mix. And then we'll understand we still miss something different :)


We are working hard on AU versions, but the first one is the hardest to obtain, as every time when porting to new systems.

Hey quinto,
