To increase the feature set in each channel strip a penthouse frame may be adjoined to a 5088 regardless of the number of input channels.
The standard 16-channel master section penthouse has 25 slots for vertically configured Portico modules. Depending on a studio’s needs, any combination of Mic Pre/EQs, Mic Pre/Compressors, Five Band EQs, Stereo Compressors, True Tape FX, and other modules can be added to the penthouse. For example, a studio doing exclusively mix work could configure a penthouse with 5-Band EQs on each input channel and then have a mixture of stereo compressors, Tape FX and more in the remaining slots. This approach allows you to avoid the large costs and redundancies found in the consoles of yesteryear.
