You now have the power to mix your individual tracks, mix bus and master chains using complete signal chain emulations from world-class mixers.

Accelerate your workflow, without compromising your creativity.

The sounds

This expansion pack gives you immediate access to The Castle Studios SSL™ 4000G+ console and their collection of the most desired mixing outboard gear.

Each channel of the console and outboard gear has been emulated using proprietary Tracing Technology and analog modeling, giving you total control in your DAW to mix with the console that has defined modern music productions. Also included are hardware signal chains for drums, bass, guitars, keys, and vocals created by The Castle engineers as inspiring starting points for your mix.

The pack contains a total of 118 presets.
