The Virtual Console Collection consists of two plug-ins, Virtual Channel and Virtual Mixbuss. Each plug-in allows the user to choose from one of five modeled consoles. Virtual Channel is applied on individual mixing channels. Virtual Mixbuss goes on the first insert of the master fader. “When using the Virtual Console Collection, your DAW instantly takes on the personality of a real analog mixing desk. The imaging and depth improves, instruments sit better in the frequency spectrum, and mixing becomes easier and more musical. You can even push the DAW faders up to find each mixer’s sweet spot,” says Steven Slate.
