HLS Channel is a plugin designed with the help of Eddie Kramer, it is a channel strip mixing console plugin modeled after the Helios mixing console.
Legendary sound engineer and producer Eddie Kramer joined forces with Waves Audio to model a Helios mixing console. Having handled the Helios mixing console at at the equally legendary London’s Olympic Studios, he helped recreate the mixing console that he used while recording with big name music acts.
Waves Audio acquired a vintage Helios mixing console from the Rolling Stones mobile truck which were used for recording during the early 70's. They then worked with Eddie Kramer to meticulously reproduce the classic Helios' properties.
The HLS Channel plug-in recreates the Helios Equalizer parameters. It also showcases the console's unique preamp characteristics. As an added feature, the HLS Channel has a built in VU meter that works and behaves just like the original.
