LVC-Audio's T-Chain has free EQ, Compressor and Gate, plus you can buy extra modules 25/11/16
LVC-Audio tells us that T-Chain is a channel strip plugin like no other. It utilizes a modular design so users can arrange different sound modules within the signal path. It can be as simple as using a single EQ or Compressor module, or as complex as you can imagine. Each module can be rearranged, added, and deleted by drag-and-drop - making it easy to rearrange your signal chain at-will.
The company says that T-Chain has numerous modules to choose from, and comes with several free modules that are easy to use, versatile, and powerful. This includes a free EQ, Compressor, Gate, and Splitter (for splitting the signal into two distinct paths). Additional modules can be purchased a la carte, and include more advanced modules such as preamp modules, oversampling capability, and more advanced dynamic modules. With more modules coming very soon.
A spokesperson told us, "T-Chain has a configurable interface, from compact to full-featured. Four different layout options exist. T-Chain includes a waveform view, as well as a configurable spectrum analyzer. Whether you are compressing, EQing, or whatever, the interface of T-Chain provides a standardized user interface."
