The Channel Strip Collection provides two new channel strip plug-ins with preamp, compressor, and EQ that let you add a distinctive character to your tracks and mixes. The RC 500 plug-in models the company’s popular RC 500 channel strip, which includes a low-distortion, high-gain, solid-state Class A preamplifier; custom-designed FET compressor; and custom semi-parametric EQ. PreSonus’ VT1 plug-in includes a modeled high-end tube preamp, along with the compressor and EQ. The compressor and EQ for both plug-ins have been engineered to deliver musically tasteful results, even at extreme settings. In this, they differ from more analytical-sounding plug-ins designed purely based on physical aspects.
Realism of State Space Modeling The RC500 and VT1 were realized through State Space Modeling, a proprietary, sophisticated, and groundbreaking physical modeling technique developed by PreSonus. The State Space approach analyzes a complete system schematic and recognizes the circuit as a set of discrete differential equations. The involved nonlinear circuit elements are modeled meticulously down to the component level in order to include all those “dirt-effects” that make the analog original sound so good, such as bias shifts, time dependencies, and saturation. The resulting DSP code is then CPU-optimized for maximum efficiency while taking advantage of Studio One’s superior sound quality. This progressive technique enables the creation of perfect virtual models of complex audio hardware.
