Channel One

Recording Channel

The new model 2950 brought a facelift to one of our best-selling products. Now the new SPL design represents the common origin of our channel strips Frontliner, Channel One and Track One. 
However, technically we did not change anything to continue the success of the Channel One with tried and tested quality.

The Channel One comes with all tools onboard for recording voices, instruments and digital or analog audio sources with the highest sound quality:

  • Hybrid Transistor/tube preamplifier
  • De-Esser
  • Compressor/limiter
  • Noise gate
  • 3-band EQ
  • Headphone monitor
  • Options: AD converter, I/O transformers
  • Made in Germany

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.

Sound On Sound (UK), Paul White
"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!"
