δelta-Control Plug-ins for AWS

The δelta-Control (δ-Ctrl) Single Fader Plug-in is a native AAX/AU/VST/VST3 plug-in that allows automation of AWS channel and mix bus volume as if it were a DAW plug-in. Inserting 24 instances into the DAW session will allow control of volumes and cuts for all 24 AWS channels. The automation system in the DAW is used to record and playback AWS volume control data entered either directly from the console faders or from the fader in the plug-in GUI.

The δelta-Control 24 Channel Plug-in brings compatibility to Logic users whilst also offering alternative workflow options to users of other DAWs. From one plug-in GUI, all AWS channel features can be automated including: Fader levels, Cuts and Insert Points for both channel and monitor paths (Absolute and Trim). In addition to this EQ, Cue, and FX switches for every channel can also be automated.

Industry Leading DAW control

While the AWS offers a powerful large format analogue console feature set within a compact console design, it also goes further than any other analogue console by integrating seamlessly into a DAW-based facility by incorporating hands-on control of important recording, routing, mixing, and editing functions in all major DAW applications including Pro Tools®, Logic Audio®, Nuendo®, Sonar® and many others.
