We started with ChannelStrip 2; a plug-in that's been used on countless hits and soundtracks with a fourteen year pedigree. Then we made it better, incorporating user feedback.

ChannelStrip 3 is like having the channel strip section of a large format console - with a few awesome Metric Halo twists.

As a signal processing bundle ChannelStrip integrates everything you need to process the channels that make up a mix as well as process the entire mix bus.

Featuring an Expander, Compressor, multi-band EQ, and a limiter, ChannelStrip provides a unified interface for processing your tracks. It also includes phase invert, channel delay, comprehensive metering and SpectraFoo spectrum analysis - so you can see your audio as well as you can hear it.
