SPL Channel One Complete Channel Strip

A complete SPL channel strip for high-definition recording with a host of features
MFR# SPLCHANONE

Product Description

The SPL Channel One is a complete channel strip with all the tools onboard for recording voices, instruments and digital or analog audio sources with the highest sound quality: a transistor/tube preamplifier (12AX7-LPS tube type), a de-esser, a compressor/limiter with noise gate, an EQ section and a headphone monitor.

The concept of the Channel One is as the ideal recording tool – for hard disk tracking as well as for analog environments. Intelligent automation ensures intuitive, fast operation and guarantees the finest recording results.

The preamp stage provides three (four with converter option) optimised inputs: The microphone input features 48V phantom power, phase reverse function and a subsonic filter. The low-impedance Line input has a precise balancing stage for connecting studio equipment. The low-noise, high-impedance instrument input is easily accessible on the front panel. Digital insert is possible using the optional AD/DA converter.

The de-esser subtly yet effectively removes offending sibilants by processing only the “S” frequencies. The Auto-Threshold mode ensures constant processing even when the microphone distance varies. All the user need do is set the desired S-reduction. Insert (Send/Return) allows external effects devices to be looped in or the unprocessed pre-stage signal to be sent out.

The Compressor/Limiter section is based on SPL’s Double-VCA-Drive® circuitry with its outstanding noise and distortion characteristics. The compressor is extremely easy to use via a single knob; its strength lies in the inconspicuous, musical way in which it works.

The Noise Gate operates flawlessly; reverbs are recognized and not cut off. For the Channel One an EQ section was designed especially for processing voices as well as acoustic or electronic instruments. In addition to Low, Mid-Hi and Air-Band filters, a field-effect distortion stage is used to subtly distort the signals in a way that lends character.

The headphone monitor allows the singer or speaker to get an individual mix directly and without latency problems in hard disk recording systems.

The options include a 24/96 AD/DA converter as well as a sound enhancing Lundahl in- and output transformer.

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.
