“This plug-in sounds fantastic,” noted David Hughes, a film sound effects designer whose recent work includes Polar Express, Shrek 2, and The Village. “The compressor is one of the most flexible and powerful I’ve ever used and can be pushed extremely hard with negligible signal degradation. The equalizer is extremely powerful and capable of surgical problem fixes as well as musical or tonal sweetening. Since I installed it I’ve gone into ChannelStrip again & again, always finding what I needed. I can easily see this being the first tool I go for when shaping a sound.”
