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!

Build your dream console strip
The URS Classic Console Strip Pro is an incredible new way of combining classic sounds into one unified channel strip. This modern concept allows the engineer to create hundreds of custom console starting points from the almost never ending palette of input stages, compressor/limiter and EQ choices all with near zero latency and full 48 bit "Double Precision" processing. SelectableiInput stage algorithms digitally re-create the sound and characteristics of classic input stages to add warmth.

EQ options
EQ section digitally re-creates the sound of four different analog consoles plus a Vintage Tube program EQ. All bands features fully sweepable frequency and "Q" bandwidth selection,  The Mid range bands overlap over four octaves of frequency selection. The LF and HF EQ Bands are selectable Peak or Shelving. Each EQ band presently selects from either:
1951 Program EQ - Tube, 1967 Console EQ - American 4 Band, 1970 Console EQ - British 3 band Class A, 1972 Console EQ - British 4 band Class A/B, or 1980 Console EQ - British 4 Band

The Compressor/Limiter section features a custom designed versatile channel compressor that can match the sound and characteristics of Diode Bridge, VCA, Fet, Opto, tube and tape compression. The compressor starting points are based on the most prized compressors limiters in recording studio history, The URS Classic Console Strip Pro features 14 classic console compressor/limiter models and 46 outboard compressor/limiter models. The compressor starting points simultaneously change the input stage algorithms to suit the compressor preset.The Compressor features fully adjustable Threshold, Ratio, Knee, Attack, Release and Gain Makeup. Adjustable from soft to aggressive!

Filters/side chain section
Filters/Side chain section can be assigned either pre/post compressor or as the compressor's side chain. Using the side chain feature can fine tune how narrow or "broad band" the compressor will affect the program material.  Both filters completely overlap to dial in problem frequencies. The Listen Key is after the Internal/ External Side Chain Filters section. The Listen Key allows you to monitor the signal being sent to the gain reduction detection circuit. 

High-res 48 bit processing
The URS Strip TDM version features high-resolution 48-bit TDM and URS Classic Console Strip Native features 64-bit "Double Precision" processing for increased clarity and headroom with unparalleled gain reduction. High-resolution "Double Precision" processing helps to avoid internal clipping in the digital domain.

Classic Console Strip Pro Rules!!!

Probably the single biggest improvement I have ever made to my DAW. I've had it for over a year now and I'm still amazed. Not only do you get just about every compressor and EQ you will ever need, you can also change the input to just about any Preamp or transformer you could think of. Simply amazing.
Music background: Musician, Engineer

Great Value

Pros: An excellent collection of classic compressor models bundled neatly into one plug in. Mix and match line inputs/ compressor models and EQ's to create a sound that is 'just right' for your project. Cons: (For me) the UI is a little cumbersome; lots of knobs and almost too many selection choices to tweak with mouse clicks and drags. I also haven't found a way to save my settings/ configuration as presets for future use. That doesn't mean it is not possible, I just haven't gotten that far into it yet. Overall and (most importantly) the unit sounds great and offers tremendous flexibility. A great value at a great price. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a 'go to' plugin compressor that does it all.
