Items similar to the APX-PROJECTCHAN


High quality channel strip featuring Aphex Class A preamp, optical compressor, Aural Exciter & Big Bottom processors. Microphone and instrument inputs plus balanced analog and S/PDIF digital outputs.

Project Channel is an extremely high quality channel strip, designed with ease of use in mind. The front panel is streamlined and very approachable. The included optical compressor features a single-knob ratio control. Using this one knob and the 10-segment gain reduction meter, it is very easy to keep the dynamic range of the signal under control. The Aural Exciter brings the essence of an instrument or voice out to the front making it easy to hear in a mix. The Big Bottom processor adds punch to your low end in a way that no EQ can. The S/PDIF digital output and dBFS output meter make it extremely easy to get a proper digital signal to an audio interface for recording. The front panel sample rate button allows for easy selection of sample rates from 44.1kHz to 96kHz. Analog outputs are also provide for use with outboard A/D converters or use with analog mixers. The front panel instrument input allows for great sounding direct recordings of bass and guitar. This input automatically overrides the rear panel XLR mic input, allowing the user to keep a mic plugged in.
