I use the Digi III eq regularly. What is the difference in sound between it and the channel strip eq? Also, how much DSP does the Channel Strip add. I am wondering if I would gain by using the new Channel Strip instead of the Digi III eq.
It's a different texture than both the SSL or EQ III plugins.
I've listened to the System 5 fusion and compared the actual console eq and compressor to the channel strip plugin and the sound is very similar.
I would describe it as a little warmer or darker sounding than eqIII or the SSL plugin (IMHO).
Are you back to the SSL just because you are use to it? It must not be all that impressive if you have already returned to the SSL.
Thanks for the feedback.
Both... I lost some punch in the mids with the Channel strip. Overall it sounds too smooth for my taste, also the compressor. I´ve got a kind of deja vu back to the Logic Channel EQ which is also a bit too soft sounding.
I thought I read elsewhere that the eq section on the new channel strip is the same as the stock digi eqs, but the comp section is different. don't quote me.
I'd be curious to know the benefit of using these types of aax plug-ins over standard rtas in a tracking situation say on a HD native system. I tried it today and it worked great, but just on solo vox, but I'm wondering if you are stacking multiple aax plugs vs. rtas how their performance would fare (i.e. on a drum session on multiple channels). I'm guessing better performance which is why they are porting over to this new code.
also, for shits and giggles I toggled through a few of the presets. wow, I was seeing some extreme boosts. I don't normally eq that crazy unless I'm going for a nutty sound or the source required it on some surgical level.
