Metric Halo's ChannelStrip has been an integral part of the sound of myriad Grammy-award winning, Gold and Platinum records, hit TV shows and blockbuster movies.  The first plug-in to bring classic large format console-style ChannelStrip processing to Pro Tools TDM, ChannelStrip has been the critical tool for getting "the sound" for thousands of professional recording engineers, composers and musicans world-wide.

ChannelStrip includes over 100 professionally constructed presets that are automatically installed with the plug-in that provide a wide variety of fix-its and starting points for optimizing the sound of your individual channels and mixes.

First class Pro Tools support
ChannelStrip got its start as a Pro Tools plugin for Pro Tools|MIX.  When RTAS was introduced, Metric Halo added RTAS support.  Pro Tools|HD came out, and support for the HD DSPs was added.  And now, with version 2.2, ChannelStrip adds support for the Accel DSPs, PCIe cards and the Intel architecture (Universal Binary).  ChannelStrip 2.2 has a number of Pro Tools-specific new features, bug fixes and enhancements over previous versions:

  • Brand new DSP allocation engine that resolves some DSP allocation issuesthat could lead to DAE errors in previous versions of ChannelStrip, especially when closing and opening multiple sessions during one launch of Pro Tools.
  • Complete overhaul of the 56k DSP code for TDMprocessing that fixes thelong-standing "96k gate bug" on Onyx (Mix) and Presto (HD/Accel) DSPs.
  • Completely revamped control surface page tables supporting all current Digidesign control surfaces.
  • New support for Pro Tools plugin clip indication and global clip indicator clear.
  • New support for the 321 chips on the Accel DSP cards.
  • New version of 56k DSP code for the 321 chips on the Accel DSP cards that supports 16/8/4 mono instances at 48k/96k/192k.
  • New support for 192k on TDM (RTAS always supported 192k).
  • Fixed incompatibility with PCIe Accel cards (all DSPs).
  • Updated support for resizing the plug-in window.
  • Support for Digidesign's advanced DMA communication protocol for more efficient communication with DSPs both on local DSP cardsand in the Expansion|HD chassis for expanded systems.
  • Universal Binary support for Intel-based Macs, including Intel optimized version of the RTAS and AS processes.

Automation
Every parameter of ChannelStrip is fully automatable with Pro Tools dynamic automation.  Automation is completely smooth and interpolated.  You can record automation via the mouse or with a control surface or you can lay-in automation via Pro Tools automation editing features.  Touch automation is fully supported for all parameters.

Control Surface Support
All current Digidesign Control Surfaces are supported in control mapping tables.  ChannelStrip's page tables have been updated to Digidesign's redesigned mapping technology, making them easy to extend and maintain as additional control surfaces are added to the product family.  Supported control surfaces include:

  • ICON
    • D-Command
    • D-Control
      • Encoders
      • CenterSection
      • Custom Fader
  • Control|24
  • Pro Control
  • Digi 002/003
  • Command|8
  • Mackie HUI
