TC Works SX-1 Reverb
The TC Reverb plugin is a very comprehensive and high-quality reverb algorithm. It mainly consists of 4 functional blocks: Level Mix Controls, Space Editor, Highcut Filter, and Time Editor. It offers five selectable shapes: Hall, Horseshoe, Prism, Fan and Club. Additional filters, delays and diffusion controls allow you to tailor the sound of this very high-quality reverb to your mix.

Antares Mic Modeler
Antares Audio Technologies has created precise digital models of a wide variety of microphones using their patented Spectral Shaping Tool(tm) technology. With this plugin assigned to one of the SX-1's four effect quadrants, you can simply tell Mic Modeler what microphone you are actually recording with and what microphone you would like it to sound like. You can turn an inexpensive dynamic mic into an expensive-sounding condenser, or vice versa. Not only do the modeling choices reproduce all of the subtle sonic characteristics that make each microphone unique, but they also give you control of each mic's specific options and recording characteristics: low cut filter, wind screen, and placement. Each option produces the same sonic effect that it would have with the actual modeled mic. And for that final touch of perfection, you can even add some tasty tube saturation.

Antares Speaker Modeler
More of Antares Audio Technologies' patented modeling technology is found in the Speaker Modeler plugin (the SX-1 is, we're proud to say, its debut). This plugin lets you sonically morph one type of studio monitor into a completely different speaker. For example, let's say you want an audio track to sound like it is coming out of a car stereo; or, perhaps you just need to hear what your entire mix would sound like out of a TV speaker. This plugin will help you achieve these effects. Its uses range from creative sound effects (when inserted on a channel or fed an aux send) to simulating different sound systems during reference monitoring (when fed an entire mix).
