Plugin Alliance, supporting all major plugin formats, announced its 50 Series—the latest product from Swedish plugin partner Lindell Audio, transforming Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) into an analog mixing console by capturing the sound of API as a dual (console channel strip and buss) plugin with patented Tolerance Modeling Technology (TMT), officially licensed from Brainworx.
The tight sound of API consoles, preamps and EQs have made them some of the world’s favorites for creating professional-sounding drums, guitars, synths, and more with attitude and presence. Users of the Lindell Audio 50 Series can now access these classic consoles, including the slight channel-to-channel variances in the values of their analog components.
Creatively, the Lindell Audio 50 Series does more than just model a single console by providing an array of choices in its dynamics and EQ sections. Ultimately, users can simply switch in their favorite flavor of the classic 500-series modules modeled; moreover, they can also be used on busses or individual tracks.
Conveniently choose between three classic EQs — the semi-parametric 50A EQ for three-band processing, the 50B for four bands, and the 60 as a precision graphic EQ for reshaping sounds in a way that is transparent and flexible.
Finally, the VCA compressor models API’s high-end 2500 series compressor, with additional controls to improve upon the original. On top of that, the included FET compressor affects the tone, simplicity, and ease of use of the original 500 series since it is modeled after the API 525 compressor.
The Lindell Audio 50 Series is available for purchase (as an AAX AudioSuite-, AAX Native-, AU-, VST2-, and VST3-supporting plugin for macOS 10.9 through 11.01 and Windows 7 through 10) at an attractive introductory price of $299.99 USD — rising thereafter to an MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) of $349.00 USD — from here: plugin-alliance.com/en/products/lindell_50_series.html
