Aphex Channel - Master Preamp & Input Processor

The Aphex Channel is a single channel class-A tube microphone pre-amp, that includes six different dynamics processors all in a single rack-unit space. The Aphex Channel is based on the popular Aphex Model 230. The Channel maintains the Model 230’s classic sound, whilst adding several new features. These include: the Aphex EasyRider compressor, Noise Gate, De-Esser, Aural Exciter, Parametric EQ and the Big Bottom. Big Bottom increases the warmth and presence of low frequencies without distorting the peek output. The Aphex Channel is perfect for professional and project recording studios, broadcast and live applications.
