He wanted something more flexible than the channel strips found on the market to-date, those for most only offer a fixed path structure for each module they contain. He wanted to create the “ULTIMATE ANALOG CHANNEL STRIP PLUG-IN” that can be quickly loaded on any track from voices to bass, drums, keys, percussion or any other instrument, and set-up the pre-amp and modules with the ideal position and signal path for each instrument(s) needs.

Analog Studio Rack is a “Modular Rack” that provides hot-swappable 500 series style EQ’s, Exciter, Compressors, Gate and a Tube Driven Pre-Amp; this is really the perfect all-in-one channel strip!
