SPL Xmas Raffle 2017: #MyFavoriteChannelStrip

Just in time for the Christmas season, you will have the chance to get a great SPL gift.

This year it is all about our channel strips Track One, Channel One and Frontliner.

In every recording studio, whether it is a small home studio or a large recording palace, the channel strip, which is a combination of a microphone preamplifier, equalizer, dynamics and other sound tools, is the foundation for a good sound.

Back in the days, this actually was a channel within a big mixing desk. Today these features can be found in a practical 19” unit and therefore you can use them anywhere you like.

The advent of the computer into recording radically changed the processing of recorded events but the need to record sound sources the best way possible is unbroken. Only a perfectly recorded signal can be processed into a perfect sound within the DAW. Changing the frequency response of a sound or manipulating its dynamic range, in combination with e.g. de-essing (removing offending sibilants, “S” frequencies), prepares a signal to be recorded and additionally enhances the performance of an artist.

With special tools like the FET Distortion (Channel One) or the Tube Saturation (Frontliner) you can push vocals or instruments within your mix. Your acoustic guitar sounds kind of dull? Impart your sound with some silky highs thanks to the Air-Band function – something you would fail to do with a digital software EQ, because only frequencies which are recorded can be processed in the DAW.

All of our channel strips, in German ‘Kanalzüge’ ;-) , can be equipped with an optional AD converter. If this converter is installed, you get your signal directly on the digital domain through your Audio Interface towards the DAW.

Take your studio to a professional level! This season you got the chance to get you favorite channel strip as a Christmas gift!
