Best 3 Free Channel Strips

# 1 DD Channel strip

This is a really nice smooth operating channel strip.

Not a lot of bells and whistles but it does work rather well for a free plugin.




High pass and Low pass filter with limiter.

I use this plugin a lot on synthesizers because it is so smooth warm kind of like a tape simulated sound to me.


# 2 Logic Channel Strip

Also a great free plugin is the sophisticated Logic Channel Strip works great.

This plugin is a great plugin for like some kick drums and snares.

Logic Channel is inspired by the famous “nine thousand series” British console. Logic Channel provides a high quality channel strip with Compressor, Gate, Filters, and EQ. Using the Logic Channel, you will have the essential tools needed to complete your project. All EQ and Filter curves based off of the famous nine thousand series British console. Channel Compressor based off of the famous nine thousand series British console.

A Hard Knee Gate based off of the famous four thousand series British console.


# 3 Modern Console EQ

Although this unit is a basic console of EQ I use it on background vocals to cut through the mix.

Modern Console EQ is a classic equalizer inspired by eq sections from famous analog consoles.

EQ In/Out button.

Phase flip In/Out button.

Highpass filter control (20 to 300 Hz).

Lowpass filter control (20 to 10 Khz).

4 Band Parametric EQ (LF, LMF, HMF, HF).

Gain, Freq controls.

LMF High-Q In/Out button.

LMF High-Q In/Out button.

HF Peak mode In/Out button.


So free plugins are great additions for coloring your mixes and giving it that extra touch from the standards like ssl's scheps or api console sounds. Giving your mixes that little bit of difference can stand out in the long run.

So on my site I list a lot of free plugins that I know work very well so take a look around.
