Overview

CS-1 Channel Strip Plug-In

All-In-One Channel Strip Plug-In Featuring EQ, Dynamics, Modulation and Reflection Engines.

The CS-1 Channel Strip provides all the tools you need for recording and mixing in one simple plug-in (using only one insert!) With a unique smoothing algorithm for all controls and DSP conserving bypass switches built-in, The CS-1 packs a whopping punch into a small package.

Included in the CS-1 are the EX-1 EQ/Compressor, the DM-1 Delay Modulator, and the unique RS-1 Reflection Engine. Of course, if you don't need all that power, you can use each module within the CS-1 separately. Use as much or as little as desired for your particular needs.

    (Future Music)

    "The [EX-1] compressor has a very manageable, ‘classic’ sound and leaves every generic plug-in... in the dust"

    Bill Stunt

    (Recording Magazine)

    "The [EX-1] EQ has a particularly nice high end that is effective at introducing the much sought-after 'air' effect"

    Jason Blum

    (Remix Magazine)

    "The CS-1 is one of the most comprehensive channel-strip plug-ins available."

    Jeff Rona

    "It [CS-1] just did what I needed it to do. The EQ and Dynamics are generally the best ones we've ever worked with.”

    This is the most underrated plugin in UAD land. I love this thing. When I actually got into it I realised it's a perfect Channel Strip. I did my first recording with the UAD using this strip and it sounded meaty and full of vibe, like when I used to record through a Neve desk with just one dbx160x … Read More

    CS-1 extremely useful for me!
    by N. Ascher (Tuesday 15 April, 2014)

    I love this plug. Not many channel strips have a delay component. I use the individual parts quite often (especially the DM-1L as an easy to use delay). I really like the reflector, a very useful tool. Compressor works pretty well and the eq can yield good results if you take some time with it. Over … Read More

    All-In-One Fix!
    by C. Kohl (Monday 14 April, 2014)

    The CS-1 came to me as a free channel strip plug-in. I have never been a major fan of full channel strip pugs, but I have caught myself using this several times when a track needs a little of everything. The interface is easy to use as well. … Read More

    CS-1 BRIEF Review
    by J. Vece (Thursday 21 November, 2013)

    I just started playing with this tonight but I can tell it's likely going to be used on my vocal bus for some time to come. It sounds great. I opened a song I was working on and was able to remove the 6 (i think) plug ins I had on on the vocal bus and replace them with this one and I think it sounds … Read More
