The Channel One comes with all tools onboard for recording vocals and instruments in the highest sound quality.
Each stage contributes to the concept as the ideal recording front-end for world-class sounds the easy way: intelligent automation ensures both intuitive and fast as well as musical operation for the finest recording results.

"Until you've tried something that works this well, the words 'smooth' and 'detailed' won't have nearly as much meaning as after playing with the Channel One. If you're wondering where that elusive 'produced' vocal sound is hiding, look no further – it's in here!"
- 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.
Auto-Threshold ensures constant processing even with varying microphone distances. All you need do is to turn the knob until the sibilants are gone.
The Noise Gate sports an Auto-Release circuit that click-free cleans the vocal track
Gadget: a distortion control might be useful sometimes to apply sublte distortions to signals to make them better cut through the mix.
