This is an invaluable tool for anyone looking to sweeten up their tracks.
Like many operating in a home studio, I had long gotten used to the rather generic sound of the preamps in my recording interface. When I first plugged the Studio Channel in to use as my front end, I heard the sound that I had been missing – it was as if the Studio Channel had breathed life back into my tracks.
The versatility of this unit is astounding. I have tested it on vocals, acoustic guitars, kick drums, and even used it as a DI for bass and electric guitar, and it handled them all exceptionally well. The compressor is ultra-fast yet smooth, the EQ is very functional, and it makes getting your tone where you want it a piece of cake.
At this price, this is an invaluable tool for anyone looking to sweeten up their tracks.
