The Vocal Channel — two channels for the perfect "sits in the mix" vocal
Eddie Kramer on the Vocal Channel: "When mixing, there's always a fight going on between the vocal and the rest of the track. For me, what makes a good mix is when all the elements combine seamlessly, complimenting one other. When we designed the Vocal Channel plug-in, we did it in such a way that the user can position the vocals within the mix, and then blend it back into the track, without it popping out, in such a way that it retains all its original clarity and presence." Vocal Channel features 2 flavors. Vocals 1, designed for classic rock vocals with a lot of dynamic range and intensity. Vocals 2, for gentler vocal performances that stay at smoother, steadier levels.
The Bass Channel gives you two flavors of radio-ready bass sounds
Eddie Kramer on the Bass Channel: "The idea behind the Eddie Kramer Bass Channel was to create a fat bass sound with a lot of presence, that cuts through without being overbearing. In general, the low-mid frequencies are accentuated, so it really pops on radio mixes. That way, you can always hear it clearly, even at low volumes on small speakers. The Bass Channel comes in two flavors: Bass1, which is less compressed, for a more dynamic sound that has room to breathe, and Bass2, a more aggressive sound with increased compression."
The Guitar Channel instantly gives you Eddie's favorite lead and rhythm sounds
Eddie Kramer on the Guitar Channel: "The Guitar Channel plug-in features settings for lead guitars and two types of rhythm guitars. When it comes to lead guitar, I want it to become a living, breathing organism, creating a palpable sense of excitement within in the mix. By combining the right amounts of EQ, compression, delay, reverb, and a touch of flange, these 5 elements, working together, make it come alive. For rhythm guitar, I try to get it "in your face" as much as possible, without over-processing the sound with EQ. By adjusting the amount of compression, and not overdoing the amount of space, I make sure that the guitar stays up front, where it belongs."
The Drum Channel can go from Zep-like to Stones-like to Hendrix-like
Eddie Kramer on the Drum Channel: "The Drum Channel plug-in really captures the essence of my drum sounds. Whether you're trying to achieve a huge Zep-like sound with loads of atmosphere, or are going for something more dry and down-to-earth like the Stones, or need a heavily-compressed, squashed, Hendrix-type sound, this is the plug-in that will get you there, quickly and easily. Since there are individual modes for bass drums, snares, and so on, you can really mix things up by creating your own hybrid drum kits, using your favorite elements from each."
The Effects Channels loads you up with Eddie's bread-and-butter secrets
Eddie Kramer on the Effects Channel: "For the Effects Channel plug-in, I set out to recreate some of the basic elements that I use whenever I'm painting a sonic picture. Over the years, these elements have evolved to suit a variety of sources and styles, from whispering vocals to screaming guitars and beyond. H-Slap is a shorter delay that emulates tape at 15 inches per second, with some EMT plate reverb at a medium setting. Z-Slap is a longer delay (7-1/2 inches per second) with a bit of feedback and a longer setting on the EMT plate.
Between the two, you'll easily find the ideal setting for almost anything you can throw at it."

Works great for Rock
by RP from Atlanta, GAJust bought these and couldn't be happier. Cut my mixing time by loads. Simple layout, not for someone who wants to tweak all day long. Only good for rock but thats pretty much all i do so like i said... read more [+] couldn't be happier close [-]

Nice sounds - too much plug-in delay
by fromThese plug-ins sound great for a classic, warm sound. But they do have a delay of over 400ms so you'll have to move your tracks ahead in the timeline.

Fixed a low end issue on a so-so recording
by J. Lippi from BrooklynSimple, no fuss choices. They don't really show what's doing what and why, but if you know anything about mixing you can sort of figure it out... So why use these plug-ins instead of making that happe... read more [+]n yourself inside or outside the box with other plug-ins or outboard gear??? Because these sound good and yield promising results, duh... They immediately fixed a low end issue I was having on a so-so recording. Even my prized APIs, that work great on almost everything, just weren't shaping this problem session the way I needed. The Kramer master Tape is pretty cool too... close [-]

Impressive! Just used this collection on a recent mix and was happy with the results. I am pretty picky when it comes to plug-ins trying to emulate analog gear. This collection gave me good dynamics without over-compressing. Works great on drums and bass guitar.
How else would I say this? YOU NEED THESE! This bundle is one of the most useful, musical, and unbelievable products out there. I was in a session with one of our other Sales Engineers doing some vocal work, and we pulled up the Vocal plug-in on my voice... Needless to say, I was speechless! And we were even running my vocal with an AKG C12 and a hand-wired LA610! Just when you thought it sounded great ... Check these out! GREAT TOOLS!!!
