Satson CS


(62 customer reviews)

Get the punch and flexibility of one of the most famous British consoles in any way you imagine. Combining the efficiency of channel strips with the flexibility of a virtual rack, Satson CS creates the perfect mixing environment with endless possibilities. It allows to easily combine and rearrange up to eight modules of Satson channel, StonEQ and a specially created buss compressor in one single plugin. The only limit is in your head.

  • The best option for processing individual mix elements and sub-groups, as well as producing end to end mixes.
  • Allows for complex compression and EQ chains inside the same plugin.
  • Up to 16x oversampling.
  • Mono and Stereo operation.
  • Optimized for low CPU usage.
  • Undo & Redo actions.
  • GUI scaling (80% up 150%).
  • Zero-latency (except for oversampling).


Each module has been carefully modeled using our Audio Quality Control Process. Sonimus Quality means we only release a product when it’s virtually indistinguishable from high-end analog gear.

  • Preamp module: Allows for proper gain staging and gives color to the sound similar to an analog console preamp. By raising the input level, you can produce more aggressive saturation for creative effects. Features: Vintage and Modern Crosstalk, VU meter, FAT and Normal saturation, smooth low and high cuts, and trim/gain control.
  • EQ module: Four bands of musical tone-shaping and HP/LP Filters. Provides by two fully parametric bands and two shelving bands (with switch options for semi-parametric) allowing it to be used either musically or surgically.
  • Compressor module: Inspired by a classic bus compressor, also provides complementary parameters which provide, mix modern esthetics such as side-chain, high pass filter and a Mix knob for parallel compression inside the same module. This module differs from the original equipment since it is also well-suited for mono tracks in addition to the stereo mix bus.

“An SSL Console is inarguably one of the most highly sought out consoles ever for its tone and flexibility, and this plugin performs and sounds in a way you hoped it would, with its flexible drag and drop method.”

James Dockerty, Audio Visual Specialist

“Satson Channel Strip greatly simplifies my mixing workflow and allows me to focus on what I’m doing. It’s the first plugin I reach for in every session. I mixed the Deepest Red EP “Monsters” using Satson Channel Strip quite extensively.”

Aaron Smith, Sound Engineer

“I find that Satson CS is an extraordinarily flexible and powerful plugin that contains three excellent modules. The routing possibilities are endless, having the possibility to load up to 8 modules in series. And of course, I can also use just one form if I wish.”

Andrea “Potter” Cristofori, Sound Engineer

    Best tool from Sonimus. So versatile and useful. 3 plugins in one: Gain staging, eq and compressor, plus the hability to reorder signal flow inside the plugin.

    Very nice eq. Compared it side by side with UAD SSL4000 on the same material and Satson won in my opinion. Easy to re-route and bypass modules.

    Satson CS has been in all my projects since first day I bought it, one of my favs of it’s class. Amazing sound plus it’s so versatile with the ability to change modules’ order and incredibly light in CPU.

    Satson CS is the type of plugin that is very nice to work with! I get the right sound very quickly. I have several Sonimus plugins, I use them in every mix because they are easy to work with and they sound really cool! And of course Satson CS is my favorite! Sonimus Respect!

  25. Gary Anderson (verified owner)

    One of the best channel strips around, i use it on every mix.

    Great Channel strip, very handy when you use it in several group tracks (like Drums, Guitars) and also as a SSLG Compressor Type

    Sonimus Plugins are really fantastic. I’ve been using them for years and love the sound quality, the accurassy with which they are programmed and much more. Anyone who hasn’t tried them, is missing out something!

    If you only needed one channel strip plugin, this could be it.

    Great plugin! Use it on every mix. The compressor is golden :)

    Amazing plugin. Versatile, good usability, light on CPU even with oversampling engaged.
    Just add more saturation modes. Psp infinistrip or waves scheps is good reference.

    Hi guys) I have many channelstrips, including Slate VMR, bx_console SSL 4000 E, bx_console Focusrite SC, Metric Halo CS, HOFA System, but not one of them has the same sensations and analog vibes that arise when using Satson CS. Absolutely sure – this is one of the best CS plugins on the market! Unlike other CS – I use Satson CS a lot on each mix and highly recommend buying. You will not regret! Success and cool mixes :-)

    I’m missing some other sonimus stuff inside the channel. This way I often have to reopen and close the plugin window again and again. Workflow is getting slower this way. Add all sonimus stuff to this or an updated channel and we’re talking.

    This is a very flexible and comprehensive channel strip that can add analogue colour with its “British” input preamp, an excellent compressor with three side-chain detection modes and a very smooth EQ module. I’ve installed it as the go-to channel strip in my mix template. Really love it!

    An superb channel strip with amazing analog sound!

  53. Adey M. (verified owner)

    SSL are classic consoles, and are worthy of emulation, but Sonimus have, as ever, put their own unique identity onto their latest product..

    The addition of another Sonimus compressor can only be a good thing, and to pair it with improved versions of Satson and Stone EQ in a flexible, modular unit, covers a lot of positive territory…

    I like the improvement to workflow that channel strips provide, and the coherence that various products from the same manufacturer creates.

    I don’t know what Sonimus are planning next, but I would love an API, or a Neve inspired modular channel strip….

    I’m sure that whatever does come next, will be high quality, and at an affordable price…

    Crack on Sonimus !!

    I’ve been using this plugin over the course of the last month and it’s already become an integral part of my workflow. Not only does it sound extremely warm and analog, but the fact that you can have multiple modules (and in any configuration) within a single instance of the plugin a massive timesaver and keeps my sessions super clean in my DAW. I can’t remember the last time I’ve been this impressed by a new plugin.

    My Name is Khalil Ed and I buy Satson CS Channel Strip I have the other ones BUT!!!!! This Thing is a beast I love it, im drummer and this channel strip gave me the glue and the shinning that my drums need the best best best Satson CS Sonimus you make killer plugins. Thank!!!

    Sawtooth Syndicate here. I own and use Satson CS, Burnley 73 and SONEQ PRO. I would own them all but i have to many plugins already. Sonimus is one of the best around the quality speaks for itself. As soon as you bypass these plugins you know what your missing :) Great work Sonimus.

    I have the Satson CS rack which I use on mixes when I want a bit of “edge”. It has a large amount of useful presets but I would have liked them to have been catalogued by type as well as by their creators. Other than that it’s a great and very versatile tool! John Jackson

    Love it and use it a lot. The console module has very smooth filters to round off a sound. EQ very musical with not so much coloring than other SSL clones. Compressor very versatile. Optional oversampling, but still CPU friendly. Resizable and beautiful mousewheel support – I’m a scroller :-)
    – EQ module in mid or side mode
    – CTRL+Mousewheel to change values in smaller increments
    – A Satson console bus plugin to change the console drive of all instances
    – Tuco as a module :-)
