Joe has worked with acts such as U2, The Strokes, and The White Stripes, just to name a few. 

The JC Vocal Strip combines the go-to analogue outboard gear that Chiccarelli uses on all vocal recordings into a single plugin. Included in the plugin are three models of classic compressors running in parallel.

This includes an 1176 clone, a Fairchild 760 clone, and a Universal Audio 176 clone. The plugin also features a de-esser, EQ, and effects such as reverb and delay. The plugin also comes with a variety of presets, designed by Joe Chiccarelli himself, to help get you started.

The variety of effects and analogue parallel workflow makes the JC Vocal Strip easy to use and extremely versatile, making it ideal for all genre and vocal stylings. 

The JC Vocal Strip can run as a standalone plugin or inside the T-RackS 5 as part of a chain with other IK Multimedia VSTs.
