IK Multimedia T-RackS British Channel - Electronic Delivery

Solid state channel strip modeled after one of the most widely used and acknowledged pieces of hardware in the music history
MFR# 1049-53

Product Description

The IK Multimedia British Channel module was modeled after one of the most widely used and acknowledged pieces of hardware in the music history. Countless hit records around the world have been produced on this large format British mixing console since the 80's making it a true staple of the music production technology for its ultimate flexibility and trademark sound.

Many of these consoles are still in active use today in the control rooms of countless studios around the world.

The signal path of this channel strip was closely modeled from top to bottom, in order to achieve such flexibility and control, so each gain stage and section switching option is matched, and this can be clearly heard in the British Channel precise and “forward” sound.

Nonetheless, IK Multimedia added a few further enhancements to its already powerful design: selectable black/brown EQ mode allows the user to tap into the two EQ circuits that were peculiar of the console's different versions (with the low shelf knob color showing which one is selected). This means that the dramatic frequency shifts and boost/cut ranges are available at the flick of a switch for instantaneous tone shaping possibilities, where the black mode has more inherent gain and sharper Qs, giving a more pronounced “EQ” effect.

I/O level controls were added to precisely drive the dynamics section from subtle compression to true squashing, still maintaining the razor sharp precision of the EQ and the channel's overall sound faithful to the original. When the Input gain is set to drive more signal level into the unit the compressor will react with more gain reduction and distortion, adding wonderful analog saturation to the track. The overall level can be compensated by lowering the output knob. The added filters section, which can be either used on its own or within the side-chaining mode, rounds out the set of handy features.

This channel strip sounds so good and is so versatile that it can be used on practically any source; kick, snare, toms, over heads, bass, guitars, you name it: the British Channel is at home on whatever track you are mixing; being derived from a console's channel it can become your "go to", self-contained solution to address EQ and dynamics needs in a single plug-in.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
