Simple channel strip ensemble (mono).
This is a simple channel strip I built for processing my guitar+bass.
The inspiration was from the 'channel strip' audio processors you can buy.
It includes a lot of Boscomac's (http://boscomac.free.fr/) amazing Reaktor work (with his permission). The majority of credit has to go to him here: I mostly just stuck the parts together!
There are various stages of saturation (input preamp, tape and tube) and filtering (fixed freq locut and hicut filters, 4 band eq and hicut/locut output filters) within the ensemble. There is also a on knob compressor ('comp').
The EQ frequencies were taken from a combination of the API 560 and Chandler Little Devil EQ's (both amazing and very expensive eq's). I can't in any way guarantee that this ensemble replicates the sound of those two units though!
The EQ also includes a very simple 'proportional Q' calculation, meaning that the Q of the mid bands gets steeper as you increase gain. The EQ bands boost and cut are +/- 12dB.
I tried to keep things simple here to try and make it as user friendly as possible. It's always tempting with Reaktor to throw 'everything and the kitchen sink' into an ensemble, which I am finding can be counter productive...
No presets either as the results will be heavily dependent on the input source.
