Add the brightness and clarity of two of the most legendary British consoles of the 80s to your Studio One experience. Brit Console leverages our proprietary State Space Modeling technology to lovingly recreate the sound behind arguably more platinum-selling records than any other console utilizing Studio One’s unique Mix Engine FX processing. Mix Engine FX is a proprietary processing technology that affects your music across all Console channels, rather than just in a single channel. This isn’t a stereo bus plug-in, Brit Console transforms any mix to imbue it with the State Space Modeled tonality of the consoles that launched a million Top 40 hits.
Because Brit Console features emulations of two different classic consoles, it also offers three Style options: Vintage, Super, and Modern. Vintage offers a bit of top-end roll-off and a smoother character, while those interested in an ultra-clean sound may prefer Super. Selecting Modern grants access to the Harmonics control. The two-stage Boost control gives you an incredibly broad palette of tonal color and drive to apply to your mix.
Modern mode also features a variable harmonic distortion that yields a gentle bass boost. Modeled after a lauded preamp design, the Harmonics control lets you dial in everything from nuanced second and third-order harmonic saturation to edgy transistor bite.
Mix Engine FX like Brit Console are unlike traditional VSTs and effects that can only affect one Channel or Bus at a time. Activating a Mix Engine Effect on any bus in Studio One will automatically affect and cross-process all channels feeding that bus simultaneously. Furthermore, the unique behavior and sonic fingerprint of Brit Console is designed via our meticulous State Space Modeling technology—which sees our engineers elbow-deep in vintage circuitry to digitally capture the warmth, nuance, tolerance, and even unpredictability of venerated hardware on a per-component basis. This attention to detail means Mix Engine FX are the most thorough and true-to-life emulations of real hardware behavior—featuring inter-channel crosstalk, noise, and the warmest drive, saturation, and character imaginable.
