CS-3301

Product description

CS-3301 is a channel strip plugin with gate, EQs, compressor, saturation and oversampling.

Overview

Gate

The (noise) gate suppresses noise or any other signal below a certain level.

Filter

CS-3301 comes with 7 independent filter shaping the sound accurately.

Compressor

The compressor controls the dynamics of the signal.

VU Meter

The VU meter monitors level of input/output signal and gain reduction of the compressor.

Features

Demo version versus Registered version

In demo mode (without registering) the plugin mutes audio every 90 seconds for a short period. This could be circumvented by clicking on the "CS-3301" label within 90 seconds.

Hey guys,

I just want to let you know that you've got a little masterpiece in your hands. The CS-3301 sounds and "feels" exceptionally great.

I don't know what you've done here, but you should do some more. If you keep on this track, you might as well beat big names like Slate and Softube.

Just so you know, I just replaced all instances of [competition name] modules in a mix (except for their console emulation) with your channel strip and now it's sounding way more natural, smooth, transparent and open.

Your EQ is simply outstanding for cutting nasty frequencies...I'm just baffled about how musical it is.

I don't know what you did with that saturation thing, but it sounds way smoother than the big majority of analogue emulations out there. It gives a natural and very analoguish and creamy body to a sound.

Good job, guys. I wish you only the best.

I saw this a year ago and thought "why would I ever want a channel strip? I can do all that even better with individual plugins". Since that time, I've bought Waves SSL E Channel and a lot of Softube plugins and many other EQs. I have come to appreciate the channel strip idea not so much for the sound but for the speed of editing. I don't have to open multiple plugins to do basic EQ, Gate and Compression. So after working with others for a while, I downloaded the demo of CS-3301. What's going on with the EQ? With similar settings, it sounds so much smoother than the Wave SSL EQ. It's a little puzzling actually. I can take the HF at 12Khz all the way up and it never sounds like too much. Is it really adding that much EQ change? It throws me off a little because it does sound so musical. I'm kind of an EQ junkie. I keep buying them to find one that "feels" right, is musical and is quick to get good results. With the CS-3301, I can get better results faster than I can with the dozens of other EQs I have. I've also come to appreciate the "no spectrum or graph idea. I spend waaay too much time looking at the waveforms instead of just listening to the sound. This is a big workflow speedup. I went back through some mixes and swapped it in place of a lot of SSL E Channels. I was able to find problems, make corrections and get a very open sound in a fraction of the time it took with the Waves. Given enough time, I can get them to sound similar, but when I'm mixing, speed is everything. The controls work perfectly. No odd jumps or jerkiness. The EQ and Saturation are the super strong points to the CS-3301. I'm seriously thinking of picking this up, even though I just spent way too much money on other plugins and some new mic preamps in the studio.
