PreSonus® is now shipping Retro Mix Legends, a collection of three Mix Engine Effects plug-ins for the company’s popular Studio One® Professional DAW. Retro Mix Legends is the followup to PreSonus’ groundbreaking CTC-1 Pro Console Shaper Mix Engine FX plug-ins, significantly expanding PreSonus’ Mix Engine Effects library. The three plug-ins—Alpine Desk, Brit Console, and Porta Cassette—may be purchased individually or as a bundle and are also included in a PreSonus Sphere membership.
Mix Engine FX is a plug-in paradigm exclusive to Studio One Professional that can subtly alter or completely transform Studio One’s native mix engine. In contrast to conventional plug-ins that must be inserted independently on each channel, with limited or no interaction between channels, activating a Mix Engine Effect on any bus in Studio One will simultaneously affect and cross-process all channels feeding that bus, using one plug-in. Thanks to State Space Modeling technology and the Mix Engine FX architecture, these plug-ins deliver thorough and true-to-life emulations of real hardware behavior, including inter-channel crosstalk, noise, drive, saturation, and character. Any bus, including the main stereo bus, can have its own Mix Engine FX assigned, allowing for limitless sonic possibilities.
