Compact and competent. The Track One is a fully equipped channel strip for fast and reliable voice and instrument recording, meeting the highest demands on sound and reliability. Mic/Instr./Line Preamp The Track One is equipped with two preamps: a microphone preamp with 48V phantom power and a separate instrument preamp. Both are tuned to a sound-neutral, open and transparent characteristic. The low-cut filter can be used for both preamps. De-Esser The Auto-Dynamic De-Esser unobtrusively and effectively removes disturbing S-sounds by detecting only the “S-frequencies” and reducing them by phase cancellation. The Auto-Threshold control maintains constant processing even if the distance between the singer and the microphone varies. Operation is reduced to just one knob that sets the desired S-reduction. Kompressor / Limiter The compressor is also extremely easy to operate via a controller; its strength lies in its unobtrusive, musical operation. The compressor/limiter section has excellent noise and distortion data. Equalizer mit Air Band For Track One, an EQ section has been designed specifically for processing voices and acoustic and electronic instruments. The Air Band filter works on the basis of a coil/condenser filter. Output & Metering The variable Output helps adjusting the gain to optimally drive following equipment. In the display the output level, S-Reduction activity, signal presence and overload as well as the compressor’s gain reduction are shown.

Dual-Channel Microphone Preamplifier in 120V-Technology With the Crescendo duo, we are expanding our 120V microphone preamp portfolio with a dual-channel version of the Crescendo. The Undistortable Crescendo duo convinces with the same outstanding sound and technical features as the flagship of the product range – the eight-channel Crescendo. It is almost impossible to overdrive this microphone preamplifier. It shines with absolute signal fidelity and clarity and lets microphones appear in a whole new light – because they have never been amplified like this before. 48 V  The phantom power required for the use of condenser microphones is activated with the 48V switch. VU -10 In the Crescendo duo, high gains can be used to optimally drive subsequent AD converters. Should the VU meter therefore deflect too far, you can reduce the displayed level by 10 dB. Ø Turn the polarity of a microphone signal 180° by activating the polarity reversal switch. HP A high-pass filter with 6 dB per octave reduces subsonic noise below 120 Hz. Mic Gain The gain is adjusted by a 12-step switch. The pre-amplification ranges from +18 dB to +70 dB. Output The switchable output control allows level adjustment to subsequent devices. The control range is +/- 10 dB. This results in a total gain of 80 dB.   Pad For loud input signals (including line signals) the input sensitivity can be reduced by 20 dB. Built-in Output Splitter Both microphone preamps have dual outputs. The often needed splitter is therefore already built in. Record the microphone signal on a recording system and at the same time record it on a backup system.

There is nothing quite like a transformer for an input buffer, it’s the perfect isolator and it eliminates the need for electrolytic capacitors at the audio input. The P10 uses a substantial UK made transformer, but because of the novel design of the current mode input stage, the transformer operates with predominantly current. With almost zero voltage there is no possibility of overload or distortion at the input, so the input stage can handle ourageous levels with no distortion, even at very low frequencies.        FEATURES Individual channel vari-phase 4 position model switch Switchable input/output metering Luxuriously warm sweepable EQ Separate ‘linked’ stereo compressor

The preamplifier stage of the Studio Channel is based on the award winning BlueTube preamplifier with a high output 12AX7 vacuum tube operating on voltages double than all other preamplifiers in its class delivering high headroom and big tone. Dual control Gain and Tube Drive enables a wide range of sounds from transparent and clear to edgy and overdriven.Full Featured VCA CompressorThe compressor in the Studio Channel is a fully variable ultra-fast and smooth VCA-based circuit with all of the controls needed for a wide range of compression settings: ratio, threshold, attack, release and gain make up. The VCA-based compressor is known for musicality as well as ultra fast attack with the ability to tame the fastest transients. From slap bass, to snare drum, to vocals, the Studio Channel’s compressor stage allows you to record as hot as needed without clipping giving you total dynamic control.Three Band Parametric EQThe equalizer in the Studio Channel is like a Swiss Army pocket knife, with the ability to carve out unwanted frequencies as well as tailor your tone to enhance your sound. The custom-designed amplifiers in the EQ deliver sweet-sounding gain/cut for ultra smooth highs, deep solid lows and clear midrange. The mid-band of the EQ section has variable Q for controlling the width around the center point of the selected frequency. High and low frequency bands give you the option for selecting peak/dip or shelving frequencies.
