Class A Tube Channel Strip with Dynamics and EQ Processing and Digital Connectivity
A Quality Tube Preamp with Channel Strip Features and Digital Outputs!
The ART Voice Channel provides all the knobs and dials and special features you would expect from art, to put you in complete control of your recording, while injecting a healthy dose of pro qaulity into it. Featuring a quality class A tube preamp and a squeaky clean gain control, as well as inbuilt dynamics processor and a semi-parametric EQ.
Not only is this a great audio processor, but it also features a range of digital connections, making it a powerful front-end for your recording set up. Whatever you throw at it, this powerhouse of a preamp unit is guaranteed to be a reliable and versatile front-line in your recording process. Of course, in the spirit of complete control, ART have given you the option to patch the EQ in before the dynamics processor or after, not to mention the insert loop available to piggyback even more signal process into the chain.
Built to provide the ideal all-in-one input solution for analog or digital recording, the ART VoiceChannel is a true second-generation discrete Class-A tube microphone preamp capable of providing clean quiet gain while maintaining incredible transparency. An integrated fully variable powerful dynamics processor subtly controls transients and noise of the most demanding sources while the VoiceChannel's semi-parametric EQ offers wide tune-ability.
For added versatility the EQ can be patched before OR after the dynamics processor while separate insertion jacks allow you quick quiet in-line connectivity to external signal processing gear immediately after the Mic preamp, before the EQ and dynamics processor in the signal path. Another insert patch point exists just before the A/D converters.
