MCDSP Analog Channel HD

Analog Channel emulates the sounds of high-end analog tape machines, tape, and channel amplifiers.
The AC101 configuration acts as a digital pre-amp allowing even excessive amounts of gain without digital distortion. A drive control determines where the audio “sits” in the saturation/compression region, and even the attack and release times of the distortion character are adjustable.
The AC202 configuration emulates analog tape machines. In addition to standard tape machine parameters such as bias, playback speed, and IEC1/2 equalization, AC202 offers controls well beyond the limits of the reel-world devices including adjustable low-frequency roll-off and head bump – independent of the playback speed. The user can select from several playback head types, and tape formulations, and even control the tape saturation recovery time.
Drum Separation
Two great uses for AC202 on drums are the elimination of rumble at extremely low frequencies, and the separation of the bass and snare drum sounds.
Ultimate Guitar Tone
The AC202 plug-in can further the pursuits of THE guitar tone with the playback head section. Insert the AC202 Plug-In on a guitar track (distorted or clean).
Many users discovered the great sounds of those analog reel-to-reel machines by using the AC202 plug-in.
