T-Chain is a versatile channel strip plugin, designed to be used in a variety of situations. It utilizes a modular design so users can arrange different sound modules within the signal path. It can be as simple as using a single EQ or Compressor module, or as complex as you can imagine. Each module can be rearranged, added, and deleted by drag-and-drop.
T-Chain has numerous modules to choose from, and comes with several free modules that are easy to use, versatile, and powerful. This includes a free EQ, Compressor, Gate, high pass/low pass filter, Saturation, and Splitter (for splitting the signal into two distinct paths). Additional modules can be purchased a la carte, and include more advanced modules such as preamp modules, character compressors, oversampling capability, and more advanced dynamic modules.
The benefits of T-Chain include:
- Customizable spectrum analyzer and waveform display.
- Full-featured preset management system with searchable filter and text-based importing/exporting.
- Multiple plugin interface size (compact, small, medium, and large).
- A/B Comparison feature for entire plugin, and for individual modules.
- Available on Mac and PC; in VST, VST3, AU, and AAX formats; and 32- and 64-bit architecture.

I tried the demo, I enjoyed the FETPress and OptoPress modules on guitars and bass. The free Phuzz module, that boasts 7 individual multi-band saturation settings, is a no-brainer, it could easily be a paid plugin. There's also a free gate, filter, EQ and compressor.
The preamps sound fantastic, to my aging ears, at least. I ended up getting the White Pre during the recent sale. The OMPre also sounded rather good, the others also had their own unique flavours, the analog vibe is great, low CPU, too.
I tend to only use the TCS platform at the moment. My only gripe is the interface, don't get me wrong, it serves it's purpose.
I would like a scalable interface, but that's just me. I also tend to prefer simpler interfaces, I can find too many options overbearing. I use the simpler single TCS option.
A demo, or the free modules, are definitely worth a try.
I felt they deserved a review, hence me writing this.Read more
