The HLS Channel Native from Waves models a Helios mixing console just like the one used in historic sessions at London's acclaimed Olympic Studios.

HLS Channel was developed in association with producer/engineer Eddie Kramer, one of the premier engineers at Olympic Studios during that classic period of rock n' roll. Waves modeled the unique behavior, coloration, and drive of the Helios console's preamps. The equalizers were modeled for their sweet saturation, high-end presence, and fat low-frequency boost. Waves even modeled the console's inherent noise and hum. The HLS Channel also features a precision-modeled VU meter that recreates the sensitivity, ballistic behavior, look, and feel of the original.
