TyTe's bright channel strip

No, this isn't TyTe stripping on a cross-channel ferry, but his Logic X channel strip (based on all the packaged plugins) that he uses as a base for his beatboxing recordings. And here it is...

Here's a screenshot of the channel strip (click to enlarge):

Here are two audio recordings. The first is made without the channel strip and the second is with the channel strip. 🙂

The Juicy Details

The Channel Strip contains the following:

  1. Channel EQ
  2. Compressor
  3. Speech Enhancer
  4. Echo
  5. Spread
  6. Exciter
  7. Space Designer
  8. Limiter

1. Channel EQ

Tyte-Beatbox-02-eq

The Channel EQ is a very simple. A cut off the very low frequencies to cut out any unwanted rumble or pops, a small boost in the bass frequencies, a slight broad dip of mid frequencies and a wee boost of the presence range of high frequencies. Nothing too severe so I can tweak it from here on in...

2. Compressor

Tyte-Beatbox-03-compressor

A reasonably hard compressor. Not too much - just enough.

3. Speech Enhancer

Tyte-Beatbox-04-speech-enhance

The audio purists will slam me for this but this noddy plugin gives the sound a nice gentle presence boost that I like.

4. Echo

Tyte-Beatbox-05-echo

A very small amount of echo gives the sound a bit of movement. Again, not too much.

5. Spread

Tyte-Beatbox-06-spread

Being a mono source, I like to give the sound a bit of stereo spread. It's better than other spreads such as Flora and Marmite.

6. Exciter

Tyte-Beatbox-07-exciter

Because my beatboxing isn't exciting enough, I add a few high-end harmonics with this scintillatingly sonic aural exciter!

7. Space Designer

Tyte-Beatbox-08-space-d

A wee bit of live chamber reverb helps brighten up the dull dry sound.

8. Limiter

Tyte-Beatbox-09-limiter

And finally, a limiter to keep those pesky signals within limits.

And here's some beatboxing...
