SPL Channel One Channel Strip at a Glance:
Preamp stage works great with vocals, instruments, or any other audio source
All-inclusive, the Channel One channel strip's preamp gives you a mic input with phantom power, polarity reverse, and a filter, a low-impedance line input for connecting your studio gear, and a low-noise, high-impedance instrument input that is easily accessible on the Channel One's front panel.
3-band EQ gives you incredible tone-shaping options
Specially optimized for vocals and acoustic and electric instruments, the Channel One channel strip's 3-band EQ puts an incredible tone-shaping tool at your fingertips. Incredibly musical, the Chanel One's Low, Mid Hi, and Air bands are primed both for corrective adjustments and for effective sound-shaping. You also have the ability to introduce controlled amounts of FET distortion into your signal, imbuing it with as much (or as little) character as you want.
Compressor/Limiter controls dynamics and adds character
Based on SPL's Double-VCA-Drive circuitry, the Channel One channel strip's compressor gives you outstanding noise and distortion characteristics. An extremely easy-to-use one-knob design, the single-dependent automation on the Channel One's compressor not only allows for a simple set-and-forget operation, it also stamps an amazingly musical and unforgettable sonic imprint onto your source.
De-esser removes those session-wrecking sibilants
Featuring SPL's renowned de-esser, the Channel One channel strip is able to subtly, yet effectively, remove ear-assaulting sibilants with its unique phase-canceling processing technology - before they ever hit your DAW! An auto-threshold function ensures that you'll enjoy constant processing even when the artist is less than consistent with his or her mic technique. Just crank the knob until the sibilants are gone - that's it!
