H.L.S Drive

The H.L.S Drive plug-in amazingly emulates the rich-sounding Tube saturation behaviors that keep radical EQ moves sounding ultra-musical, even at extreme settings. It is based closely on the Type 69 EQ which is very musical. Add character and clean up a mix with H.L.S Drive.

There are many factors that combine to create character in recording and mixing, ranging from instruments, VI instruments, musicians, performances, through the room and mic used, to the preamps, processors and effects! You will add character and clean up a mix with H.L.S Drive

In developing the H.L.S Drive plug-in we dug three original Type 69 EQ units and built a new unit from the original ones. 

  • Saturate and produce harmonics,
  • Adds distortion characteristics and warmth,
  • British transformer sound,
  • DRIVER does add harmonics in the form of rich harmonic variation of the frequencies.
  • Flexible control of low and high frequencies.
  • The hi boost is fixed at 10KHz but the attenuation is stepped for repeatability.
  • Lo boost is inductive and is continuously variable at a range of pre-set frequencies.
  • Independent input and output sliders and meters.
  • Easy and intuitive user interface.
  • Resizable GUI.
  • Simplicity with simple component.
  • Less is more.

    The best plug-in I have now! It gives you a lot of beauty over your mix, as well as a bit of analog saturation and richness. I like it on drums, voice and especially double-bass.
