The SPL Channel One is a high end recording channel strip, offering a range of practical dynamics processing. These include: Compressor / limiter, de-esser, noise gate and a three band EQ sections. The circuitry in the actual pre-amplifier in the SPL Channel One, is a hybrid solid-state / tube design. There is also an optional analog-digital convertor card for the Channel One, making it one of the most versatile and cost-effective boutique channel strip on the market.
The new model 2950 brought a facelift to one of our best-selling products. Now the new SPL design represents the common origin of our channel strips Frontliner, Channel One and Track One. However, technically we did not change anything to continue the success of the Channel One with tried and tested quality.
The Channel One comes with all tools onboard for recording voices, instruments and digital or analog audio sources with the highest sound quality: Hybrid Transistor/tube preamplifier De-Esser Compressor/limiter Noise gate 3-band EQ Headphone monitor Options: AD converter, I/O transformers Made in Germany
Each stage contributes to the concept as the ideal recording front-end for world-class sounds the easy way: intelligent automation ensures both intuitive and fast as well as musical operation for the finest recording results.
Sound On Sound (UK), Paul White "Until you've tried something that works this well, the words 'smooth' and 'detailed' won't have nearly as much meaning as after playing with the Channel One. If you're wondering where that elusive 'produced' vocal sound is hiding, look no further – it's in here!"
