Developed in association with producer/engineer Eddie Kramer, the HLS Channel was meticulously modeled on a Helios mixing console just like the one he used in historic sessions at London's Olympic Studios (In fact, Waves actually managed to get their hands on the Helios from the Rolling Stones mobile truck, which was used on a slew of classic recordings during the early '70s). In addition to modeling the Helios EQs with their sweet saturation, high-end presence, and fat low-frequency boost, Waves even modeled the unique behavior, coloration, and drive of the console's preamps. To top it all off, the HLS Channel features a precision-modeled VU meter that recreates the sensitivity, ballistic behavior, look and feel of the original.
I have Had the Tape, Tubes & Transistors bundle for a little while now. I love the whole bundle. This eq Is Smooth and clean and I love the coloration I get from the preamp emulation. the High end boos is pretty smooth and does not get harsh. I don't really use the mid range boost much. but the low end boost is pretty nice. Also you will need to gain stage this plugin. I notice that I get a kinda bad sound when just blasting it with noise.
Now I use a ADK PC with 3.6 GHZ i7 And 8 gigs of RAM and the CPU hit is basically none.
the plugin is stable and looks cool. I love the eq for the high end boost and really would say if your going to get a small bundle get this one. oh and get it from WAVES UNIVERSE that's where I got it from. the prices are worlds better than on the waves normal site. but remember to shop around there are deals many places.
um yea that's it great eq I am liking the whole bundle and love the pie comp. to be honest my more used tape emulation is still my roundtone but the waves one is pretty decent to.Read Review
