• Channel Strip Package
The AE011 Channel Strip Package includes 5 models that employ VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modeling) technology to recreate the sound and characteristics of
several classic compression and EQ units from the 70's. Not only do these models faithfully capture the unique saturation of analog circuitry — in part thanks to
precise modeling of the original FET gain reduction, Tube/Transformer buffer amplifier, VCA (Voltage Controlled Amplifier) and RMS detector circuits — but they have also been fine-tuned by leading engineers and
feature carefully selected parameters in a simple interface that makes it easier than ever to create the ideal sound.
• VCM Technology
VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modeling) technology actually models the characteristics of analog circuitry - right down to the last resistor and
capacitor. VCM technology goes well beyond simply analyzing and modeling electronic components and emulating the sound of old equipment. It's capable of capturing subtleties that simple digital simulations
cannot even approach, while actually creating ideal examples of sought-after vintage gear.
• Compressor 276 (mono), Compressor 276S (stereo)
These models recreate the fast response, frequency characteristics, and tube-amp saturation of the most in-demand analog compressors for studio use,
delivering classic-style compression with all the punch and fatness you'd expect from a fine piece of studio-grade analog gear. Not limited to processing drums and bass, these compressors are also an excellent
choice for vocals and master stereo mix compression. The 276 is a dual mono unit, while the 276S operates in stereo.
• Compressor 260 (mono), Compressor 260S (stereo)
Featuring faithful modeling of the solid-state voltage-controlled amplifier and RMS detection circuitry of the late 70's, these Add-on Effects bring back the sound of classic comp/limiters
used primarily for live sound reinforcement applications. They offer three selectable compression knee types — hard, medium, and soft — and although variable attack and release are provided, presets
recreate the fixed settings of the vintage gear. Top-level sound-reinforcement engineers have carefully tweaked the parameters for optimum response in live situations. The 260 is a dual mono unit, while the 260S
operates in stereo.
• Equalizer 601
The 601 equalizer offers two equalizer types - Clean and Drive. The Drive type models the distortion characteristics of 70's analog EQ circuitry,
delivering musical-sounding drive and saturation. The 601 is a stereo six-band parametric equalizer with LO and HI shelving filters and four MID peaking filters, and it accurately reproduces both the boost and cut
frequency response and band interaction of vintage analog gear. And you get EQ capability over a wide 16 Hz - 40 kHz range when operating at 88.2/96 kHz. The 601 features a familiar knob-style interface as well as
graphical editing capability on both the console and PC displays.
