BritChannel is a classic type 73 analog preamp simulator / channelstrip.

One of best designs in the world! Now combined the preamp and the eq in a plugin to reach all futures of this legendary unit.

Re-drawing and designing original circuit carefully and emulated original fingerprint of the gear. Carefully designed transformers and tubes. Fully emulated line/mic-amp and eq.
  • PREAMP: Microphone and Line preamp gain control. Fully emulated from original design.
  • EQ STAGE: Classic Type 73 design eq and filter with component modeling technology.
  • OUTPUT: Clean output fader after output amp to keep original sound after processing.
Please support freeware development

The plugin shows in my downloads but after installing it doesnt show up in my daw, do i need to physically install it into my plugin folder ?

Your DAW may not see it yet. You may need to make your DAW refresh its view of plug-ins. Often in 'Settings", there's a place for VST or Plug-ins and has a folder listed there. Make sure it's in there. There's also often a "Refresh" or similar option that forces the DAW to relook at the folder.

Depends on the file directory you have Mac or windows

You should move the .dll file to your plugin folder

I was a bit sceptical about this, since BritPre already works well and any EQ fits after that, but in fact, having this EQ design helps with guitar sound greatly. If put before Distortion, it sets color and preamps. If put after Distortion, it shapes almost like amp sim (at least like combo pedal), Gain knob changes distorted sound in unobvious way, like adding compression taming all those highs. If your Distortion allows semi-parametric mid band and lowpass, this FX has less use, otherwise it's really good.

Excellent plugin! It would also be interesting to see if Analog Obsession would come up with a freeware vocal rider plugin (like waves does) and see how it stacks up between a paid vox rider plugin vs a compressor plugin

A wonderful EQ, and with version 5 the preamp seems to show its effect more obviously. I use it on vocals and it always sounds better. :)

Adds realistic depth and feel to guitars especially. Without sounding fizzy, remains warm and analogue even when pushed.

There is a huge controversy about his plugins including malware.

Nah - his SITE was hit by malware attack after he went fully freeware/by donation. There are Corporate elements who do not LIKE when talented devs go this route rather than letting the greedhead moneymen monetize their creations and stake claim on their every intellectual gambit. This devs plugs are ALWAYS PREMIUM and PROFESSIONAL. The assaulted software was pulled immediately when the dev was alerted. Controversy?! You sound like PR.

@Icke I have many plug ins from this developer with no virus issues. These plug ins are some of the best I've tried - including many paid for. I wonder if that is why you protest so much?

It is still happening. I clicked on a site that seems the official, but there were only few of his plugins, the browser said it is an unsafe page and when I clicked to view some details of a plugin then some new window opens and started to download, hopefully I canceled the download. Plugin4free, thank you for being a safe space to connect developers and users
