Description

The Chandler Limited TG Channel MKII is a recreation of several classic EMI circuits.  It combines a TG2 pre amp section with an equilizer that was adapted from a circuit in the TG12410 Transfer console.  This console was the mastering counterpart to the original "Beatles desks" installed at Abbey Road.

The active portions of the unit use the same discrete amplifiers and transformers as in the TG1 Limiter and TG2 pre amp.  The passive equalizer portion of the EQ is an all inductor design and offers sweet high frequencies with large inductor based lows, and a very high"Q" mid cut section.  Although not designed as such, due to its passive inductor design the unit will inevitably draw comparisons to the Pultec EQP-1a3, a very simple description would be to call it an EMI Pultec with an EMI pre amp thrown in.

Input - Combines 600ohm mic input and a 10k line input which is selectable with the line switch.  The fifteen position switch attenuates mic and line and gives a large range of control for normal and not so normal uses.mic gain -15db to +55dbline gain -25db to +45db

Output - Functioning as a console fader, this control is placed after the input stage and before the out put stage.  This allows for trimming of ther input signal, as well as allowing the user to run the input very hot (for extra coloration)without distorting the recorder.

High EQ - A high boost control with 18dbof gain and a select switch that combine's shelf and peak settings.  Peak characteristic is resistor capacitor based and the peak types are inductor style.16k, 12k, 8.1k, 6.8k shelf.5.8 k, 3.9k, 2.2k, 1.8k, 1.2k peak.Mid EQ- A mid frequency EQ with 20db of cut with six points set at very sharp "Q". Specially designed to fix problem areas.  All inductor based.300, 400, 800, 1.7k, 3.3k, 6.8k

Low EQ- A low boost control with20db of gain and a select switch that combines shelf and peak settings.  Both peak and shelf characteristics are inductor based. Also, On the peak settings"Q" gets sharper with more boost.30, 65, 165 shelf.50, 70, 100, 200 peak.

Low cut at 50hz.Hi "Q" for mid peak frequencies.  48 volt phase reverse.
