Breath New Life Into Your Sound with Classic Channel

NOTE: This product requires that you have an iLok account for authorization, although it does not require a physical iLok key. Please call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer if you have questions.

The antithesis of today's surgical channel strips, the Softube Classic Channel gives you warm, vintage EQ and compression in an easy-to-use plug-in. The sonic essence of vintage Pultec EQs and LA2A compressors was their classic tube warmth and the gentle, highly musical general nature of the effect. Based on Tube-Tech's hardware updates of the iconic originals, Softube's Classic Channel lets you augment your tracks with these sonic tonics in one convenient plug-in that includes a PE 1C equalizer, ME 1B midrange EQ, and CL 1B opto-compressor. Together, they'll breath new life into your sound.

Softube Classic Channel EQ and Compression Plug-in Features at a Glance:
  • Classic Tube-Tech warmth and air
  • Tube-Tech CL 1B Opto Compressor
  • Tube-Tech PE 1C "Pultec" Equalizer
  • Tube-Tech ME 1B Mid-range Equalizer

You can do a full mix only with this channel

I did it. I have mixed a full song only with this channel strip and it worked perfect. You CAN´T do surgical EQ (since you have a few fixed freq to boost/dip and the "pultect EQ" is a little broad) but if you have well recorded tracks this will enhance for sure. About compression, the CL 1B is great...if you stack a few of this compressors (on vocals) you may need to work on deessing. I like to use the "soft compression" settings on a parallel drum bus (or any of the drum bus/group settings) and blend it to the original drum sound. Its magic!

These are all bangin. Really good analog classic vibe but they need to be dialed in correctly. Not forgiving plugins but once you figure out what you're doing extremely useful. Definitely a go to sound. A little bit taxing on cpu, though.

You’re missing out if you don’t own these.

I highly encourage you to go get a free demo of these and try them out the next time you’re mixing. I’m not even going to try to convince you of anything here, just lay out the facts; Softube is one of the best modelers on the market (right there with Slate) and these are Tube Techs! What more reason could you possibly need to get these?!

One of the Best Plug-ins I have ever owned

Smaller companies are challenging the Big Boys (read) Waves with some absolutely amazing products. I purchased this mainly for the Pultec emulated EQs, but the compressor is no slouch either. Although I have never heard an actual Pultec, this plug in sounded the best of all Pultec emus I've heard. The only other one that came close was when UA was offering their plugs as individual plugs sans the UA Cards. For the price of this plug, hell even at twice the price it is definitely worth it. While not the most versatile plug IE very colored sounding, the color is beautiful. For bass, vocal, voice over, kick drums I couldn't live without it. Don't use it on every channel, but when used sparingly it's sound is like no other. Plus it work on AAX-DSP, the new Pro Tools HDX system. Some of the best money I've spent in a long time. Plus, you know when the actual Manufacturer puts their name on it, it has to be to their standards. And if you've ever heard of Tube Tech, you know their standards are very high.
