Software Compatibility

You'll need an iLok copy protection device in order to use this software. If you already have one, you're good to go. If you don't, you can buy one here. An iLok is a small USB gadget (about the size of a thumb drive) that plugs into your computer. It "unlocks" the software, allowing you to use it.

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

Surprisingly good value

There are better channel strips out there no doubt, but this one surprised me as it really is very good value. It does not sound cheap or 'digital'. It adds a nice bit of analog flavor and you can crank the hi-shelve EQ pretty hard without sounding brittle. The compressor responds the way I would expect with the settings I'm used to dialing in on hardware, something that does not always apply to plug-ins. It's a very good channel strip over all, but for the money it's really great!
