Your Ultimate Virtual Console!

Okay, the secret is out. McDSP makes ridiculously excellent plug-ins. And Channel G native is one of the best examples. Somehow, it manages to stuff that "big board" sound into a super-flexible plug-in format that you'll want to use on all your projects. So, let's take a look.

McDSP's Channel G native is actually three plug-ins - G Equalizer, G Dynamics, and G Console. What do they do? G Equalizer is a 5-band console-style EQ with a really versatile filter section that you'll appreciate. G Dynamics offers up an expander/gate, a compressor/limiter, and a versatile filter section as well. Rounding out the trio is G Console, a combination of the G Dynamics and G Equalizer configurations, giving you a sophisticated console-strip experience. However you use them, you'll have great sound at the ready - especially because of the included calibration modes for music, post-production, and models of the world's most-popular analog mixing desks!

Just amazing

This can easily be the only plugin you need to mix a whole álbum in terms of eq and dynamics, it just sounds right and gives you the vibe and sound of all the consoles it emulates. It models not only the eq or compression curves but also emulates the saturation of the consoles. Great plugin!

Simplity in design but machine under the hood

Channel G is one of the best channel strip plugins you can have at your fingertips. It has every dynamic and filter control you will possibly need and the EQ section allows you to select from 5 different EQ curve channels! I mean you are getting a channel strip with 5 different EQ bands. Its just a great plugin and can really help you drive in the sound you are going for.

Sweetwater Advice

Tyler Berggren

McDSP Channel G may be the most essential mixing plug-in out there. A lot of channel strips seem to have been skimped on in one area or another (for example, the EQ is great, but the compressor just doesn't do it for me). Channel G really does have everything I need to whip a track into shape. The Expander is perfect for cleaning up drums and dirty guitars. The EQ is extremely flexible and the included models of classic console EQs really give you a ton of options. The Compressor might be the highlight, though. It has a fully adjustable knee control that can completely shape the response of your compression. And as an extra bonus, cranking Channel G's input gain adds analog saturation just like a classic mixing console!
