Description

The perfect front-end for the modern producer.

In the newest Mk3 version, this classic has been thoroughly revised and, in addition to a higher internal audio voltage (now +/-18 V) for even better, more detailed sound, a further improved preamplifier section, an integrated Transient Designer, a Tube Saturation stage and a Mic A/B comparison option for two microphones and other great features that raise the modern recording and mixing studio to a new level of quality. With de-esser, compressor and equalizer, all the important tools of a real channel strip are still on board. Whether it’s a microphone, line, or instrument signal, the Channel One Mk3 makes any source sound like a professionally recorded signal.

The new design of the SPL Studio Series perfectly highlights the sonic qualities of this 3rd generation Channel One.

The Channel One is the ideal channel strip for reliable results with the highest sonic demands. Extensive automation for fast operation and musical sound characteristics guarantee first-class recordings from the first take.

Lundahl Transformers

- The Sonic Aspects
Transformers are used as an alternative to electronic balancing stages in the inputs and outputs. Transformers can be found in many classics of audio engineering. They make the bass and fundamental tines rounder and give it a little more punch. The high and overtone range sounds a bit silkier and more present.

We find transformers to be advantageous, especially for voices. For highest precision and speed in signal transmission (transient processing), however, electronic stages are better suited. The bottom line is that it is a question of taste and application.

In the Mic Preamplifier

In the case of preamplifiers or channel strips, the 2161 input transformer, which is specially designed for microphone inputs, provides an additional gain of up to 14 dB (depending on the microphone), which must then be added to the scaling. This relieves the microphone preamplifier. Since the transformer ratio passively increases the level, no noise is added. Therefore, the input transformer is more important than the output transformer in preamplifiers.

Operational Safety

When equipped with input and output transformers and completely symmetrical cabling, no voltages can enter the device via the signal connections that could cause damage. The signal transmission is inductive and thus electrically isolated.
No hum is guaranteed. And last but not least, transformers drive very long cable runs, which is a welcome feature in live applications at the latest.

The Channel One Mk3 can be ordered with an optional input transformer for the microphone inputs and an output transformer for the output Out 1.
