Now Console 1 owners can use Summit Audio Grand Channel in an adapted and tightly integrated version, which actually expands on the sonic options compared to the standard Summit Audio Grand Channel plug-in. It is available for free to owners of both Summit Audio Grand Channel and Console 1.
The Grand Channel combines the warm and smooth tone sculpting Summit Audio EQF-100 Full Range Equalizer with the rich sounding and dead-easy-to-use Summit Audio TLA-100A Compressor. With the Console 1 adaptation, the Summit Audio Grand Channel integrates seamlessly into the Console 1 workflow. The Shape section uses the gate and Transient Shaper from the SSL SL 4000 E.
More Drive Options
Using Grand Channel with Console 1 even expands the sonic options compared to what you get with the standard plug-in version: To add some grit and character to your tracks, the Drive knob can be used to overdrive the input stage of the TLA-100A compressor, just as in the standard plug-in. But with Console 1, you can set the Drive Character knob so you overdrive the EQF-100 instead—or you can get any blend between the two. The difference in distortion character is rather striking and this feature adds wider sonic options to your mixing workflow.
- Hands-on control of Summit Audio Grand Channel
- Flexible and easy to use with huge sonic range
- Each and every component carefully modeled
- Using Drive Character adds the option of getting the EQF-100 saturation, instead of only TLA-100A as with the plug-in
