Our flagship recording channel features separate Class-A mic & instrument preamps with two selectable tube gains, de-esser, twin-core compressor/limiter, EQ with Air band and tube saturation. Thanks to it’s individual analog I/Os, all these powerful, hi-end analog processors can be inserted during mixing. 24/192 AD converter and I/O transformers are optional.

The hybrid preamp with discrete transistor stage and separate tube stage combines high performance and neutrality with the option for sound coloration by enhancing the harmonic content with the switchable tube drive.
The unique one-knob de-esser employs a phase cancelling technique to reduce sibilants.
With three bands, the EQ section covers the complete frequency spectrum efficiently.
The tube saturation stage gives that dense, energetic, warm and fat tube sound that we all love.
The compressor offers all classic parameters and a controllable automation of attack and release which adjusts the setting of time constants to the input signal – pretty much like a cruise control.
