Plugin Boutique offers the Fat Channel XT ($59.95 value) channel strip VST3/AU/AAX plugin by PreSonus as a FREE add-on with any purchase this month.
Fat Channel XT is a multi-effect channel strip developed by PreSonus. The software is compatible with all 64-bit VST3, AU, and AAX plugin hosts on Windows and macOS.
The plugin delivers a selection of vintage-style audio effects to any digital audio workstation. It’s an all-in-one solution for channel compression and equalization, as well as limiting, filtering, and gating. It combines the most-used mixing tools in a single, easy-to-use interface.
Fat Channel XT comes with three different EQ models and three compressors.
The available compressor models are:
- Standard – modern compressor with a clean sound;
- Tube – modeled after a vintage tube-based optical compressor;
- FET – based on a vintage FET compressor.
And here are the included EQ models:
- Standard – a modern equalizer with a clean sound;
- Passive – emulation of a vintage tube-based passive-EQ;
- Vintage – emulates a classic solid-state equalizer.
In addition to the included compressor and EQ modules, Fat Channel XT also features a built-in limiter, a filter, and a noise gate module.
Here’s how PreSonus describes the Fat Channel XT plugin:
“From the moment the original StudioLive shipped over a decade ago, the Fat Channel was an instant hit. With a fully variable high pass filter, a noise gate designed to never click, a musical compressor based on PreSonus’ famed ACP88, a four-band parametric EQ, and a Limiter to round it all out, the Fat Channel gave StudioLive users all the tools they needed to craft the perfect mix.”
