ChannnelStrip is a modeled tube preamp with 3 band EQ and oscilloscope for Ableton Live 11.
Controlling dynamics with saturation is an often overlooked technique in music production. ChannelStrip is intended as an end-of-chain effect giving you smooth modeled tube saturation combined with an oscilloscope to monitor how the waveform is compressed. The integrated 3-band equalizer will furthermore help you apply gentle, unobtrusive tone-shaping.
Even as a simple distortion effect or equalizer, ChannelStrip will make a great addition to Ableton's stock plugins.

There's also an advanced version with more features called ChannelStrip Pro.
