Product Details

  • State-Space Modeled emulation of a classic American console
  • Exclusive transformer selection control
  • Authentic modeling of preamp drive, channel noise, crosstalk, noise, and character
  • Convenient automatic gain compensation
  • Passthru option for added flexibility

A perfect impersonation

Add punchy low end and the smooth warmth of a legendary American recording console to your Studio One experience. Alpine Desk transforms any mix with the State Space Modeled tonality of the consoles behind the sound of classic albums from the 70s, 80s and beyond.  

Unique to Alpine Desk is a variable output transformer that lets you switch from a 1:1 to 3:1 gain ratio for higher drive settings and a uniquely dark and warm tonal contour.

What’s a Mix Engine Effect?

Unlike traditional VSTs and effects that can only affect one Channel or Bus at a time, activating Mix Engine FX on any bus in Studio One—including the Main—will automatically affect and cross-process all channels feeding that bus. This lateral cross-processing of Studio One’s entire Console— when combined with PreSonus’ proprietary State Space Modeling technology—has allowed us to create incredibly natural, nuanced, and authentic-sounding digital models of venerated analog equipment behavior including: drive, crosstalk, noise, saturation, and more! 

What is State Space Modeling?

Our State Space Modeling technology allows us to create digital models of analog circuit behavior on a per-component level. We can even model the specific non-linearity within these components, which results in even more realistic digital models of analog circuit behavior. This is particularly important for components such as transformers and vacuum tubes. Because of this, our Mix Engine FX capture the character and personality of legendary analog hardware that are otherwise out of reach for most musicians, producers and engineers.
