Andrew Scheps: Creating the Perfect Channel Strip

Waves have come up with another beauty. Designed with Grammy-winning mixer, Andrew Scheps, whose credits include Adele, Jay-Z, and Metallica, the super-flexible Omni Channel plugin delivers Andrew’s time-tested combinations of compression, EQ, saturation, colours, and more – all crafted to work together entirely seamlessly.

Channel strips are the mixing world’s most efficient tools, providing all your basic processing: EQ, compression, gating, and often quite a bit more, in one modular, easy-to-manage unit.

Mixers choosing which channel strip to work with often face a dilemma, however: channel strip plugins based on vintage mixing consoles can sound fantastic, but tend to tie you down to a very specific and limited sonic colour. At the same time, modular channel strip plugins let you mix and match diverse processors with flexibility, but the different processors might not work together cohesively, so won’t necessarily interact as a true channel strip.

Scheps Omni Channel literally gives you the best of both worlds. Through years of mixing diverse music genres, Scheps has perfected certain combinations of go-to processors – some based on classic hardware units, some being innovative modules developed from scratch – each with its own unique character. They are all now provided to you in one flexible, yet fully cohesive, channel strip plugin. Check out the video below to find out more, and click HERE for more plugin details.
