Analog Studio Rack is a "Modular Rack" that provides hot-swappable 500 series style EQ's, Compressors, Gate, Exciter and a Tube Driven Pre-Amp; the perfect all-in-one channel strip.

Inspired by a classic and famous British console for its Gate/Expander, Comp/Limiter, Bus Compressor and EQ, a modified Exciter, a Tube Driven Pre-Amp and another famous mid 1950's EQ, the AS-Rack brings together a suite of 7 modules expertly tuned to sound musical. True analog in the box.

Each of the 6 main modules can be placed in any order with simple drag and drop, allowing you the freedom within a rack space design to try different combinations; Compressor before or after EQ, Gate after a crushed Compressor for effect... All of this is now possible to customize your tone and source material, with various views available per module for gain reduction, spectrum and 1/3 octave.

The plug-in comes with an array of presets specifically designed for various instruments as your starting point. Utilize them in your mixes, tweak, create your own as single module presets or global.

I needed a new plugin like a hole in the head and a few of them even less, because like most people around here, I have too many of them...

But I like channel strips, so I thought that I should give this one a go, especially as you can insert each plugin individually, so that's a bonus...

I've tried the Nomad Factory plugins in the past and I didn't find any keepers until Bus Driver arrived...

That one's a winner and the same team were responsible for the ASR project...In fact it shares some of the same features and probably much of the same code...

So I installed the demo and gave it a quick whirl...

But I didn't like it....i thought that it was just a BS take on the 500 series concept with some rehashed Nomad code in a sparkling new GUI....

I installed and deleted it a few times, until one day I had it up on a drum track and some "magic" happened...

A bit of the valve stage, into an EQ, some channel comp, a touch of exciter and widening and then into the bus comp...Wow .

When you bypass the rack, you notice just how much those little subtleties add to the overall sound..

All in a single package with almost no CPU hit and zero latency...I'm impressed...

So far I've really only used it on drums, strings and a couple of other bits and pieces, but it has been a winner every time and I will find more uses for these plugins as I build them into my workflow...

It's important to pay attention to the gain staging to get the most out of ASR and Bus Driver...

(In fact, proper gain staging is one of the crucial factors in making any mix sound good...).

Some "SSL purists" made some rather unkind comments about ASR when it was first released because they were unable to disassociate themselves from their elitist preconceptions...

It doesn't matter if is not exactly an SSL or a Pultec or whatever...

In the brave new world of digital coding, we've moved beyond the constraints of hardware...

All that really matters, is if something works or not and the ASR delivers in spades...

It is versatile, efficient and effective...

What more do you need in your toolbox ?

Not every product that a company makes, will hit the target, but I feel that with the ASR, that Nomad Factory have hit the ball out of the park and brought all of the bases home :).

Thanks for an inspiring plugin...It is really appreciated .
