PSP InfiniStrip

Want to combine the freedom to choose EQs and compressors with the convenience of a single plug‑in? PSP may have the answer...

Channel strip plug‑ins often include a preamp emulation, a compressor and an EQ, and that's pretty much what you see when you first instantiate InfiniStrip. But a few offer many more options, and this is one such plug‑in: it comes with an almost bewildering choice of modules, most of which have been newly developed, though there are also a few based on PSP's range of single plug‑ins. The user can instantiate up to nine modules in the rack at any one time and arrange them in any order, with the signal always flowing from left to right; you can set up some fairly sophisticated processing this way.

Where relevant, modules have independent side-chain inputs and include side-chain...
