We started with ChannelStrip 2; a plug-in that's been used on countless hits and soundtracks with a fourteen year pedigree. Then we made it better, incorporating user feedback. Now we're proud to release ChannelStrip 3 for Pro Tools 10 Mac/Win and Audio Units.

ChannelStrip 3 is available in two versions. They are all functionally identical but differ in price, the hosts they will run on and available technical support.
  • New look for the user interface
  • Resizable - small, medium and large sizes to fit different screen resolutions, make CS 3 easier to use
  • Added "MIO Comp" character from our hardware MIOStrip
  • Now includes a limiter, making ChannelStrip 3 a single plug-in master bus solution
  • SpectraFoo™ spectrum analysis on the EQ and sidechain graphs
  • Sidechain listens for the gate and compressor
  • All your existing ChannelStrip 2 presets open seamlessly for session compatibility


  • ChannelStrip 3 for GarageBand will only run within GarageBand. Although ChannelStrip 3 for GarageBand is an Audio Unit it will only run in demo mode under other hosts. If you decide that you would like to use ChannelStrip 3 in other Audio Unit hosts, you may upgrade to the full version of ChannelStrip 3 as explained below. Any settings that you create using ChannelStrip 3 for GarageBand can be loaded into ChannelStrip AU.
  • ChannelStrip for GarageBand only includes online support. Telephone support for this product is unbundled and will require purchase of a support incident. As with all of our products, bug-fix and compatibility releases are available for free online.
  • The copy protection used for ChannelStrip 3 for GarageBand locks the software to a single computer; you may not move it between machines.


  • This version will run on any host that supports AU plug-ins on a Macintosh (32 and 64 bit support) and AAX plug-ins on Pro Tools 10 for Mac and Windows.
  • This version uses iLok copy protection, so it may easily be used on multiple machines.
  • This version includes telephone and online support, as well as bug-fix and compatibility releases are available for free online.
  • AAX: Pro Tools 10 for Mac/Win
  • AU: Any Mac AU host (32 & 64 bit)
  • iLok key and account (AAX and AU)
