Sweetwater Advice

  • Aaron Cieslikowski

    The Chandler Limited TG Channel MKII has been sitting on top of my studio's food chain since it arrived! It kills on guitar and bass, letting them jump out of the speakers without overtaking the mix, and it keeps the punch of kick and snare intact while still adding some girthy vintage vibe.

    Terrific Pre and Eq

    I have many outboard equalizers. 5 pultecs, chandler little devils, purple audio odds, tonelux, api, vintech, hammer, etc…. I am in love with the eq on these units. I highly recommend these for the eq alone. The terrific pre is a bonus for me.

    Works for everything!

    I love all Chandler products. Emmet Andrews helped me pick this gear out to help tame the high frequencies in solo violin recording. Yes, I am not a rocker, I am a composer and multi-instrumentalist and I record for film all types of acoustic instruments. Many people think open, transparent pre's are the way to go for acoustic/jazz/classical/world etc. For my needs in the digital realm I find a more colored sound is useful to contrast with the digital aspects of ITB recording. This pre is still open and big though! I track everything through it, horns, percussion, vocals, cello, violin.
    You hear alot about how these things do wonders for electric guitar. But let me tell you, they "rock" for the non-rock recording engineer.
    The eq is great, although you can only boost the high frequencies, the cuts occur only in the mids around 300-700. The low boost and low cut is very nice, but if you do most of your eq'ing in the box and aren't tracking too much drum kit, you might consider the Chandler TG2 for stereo recording. This said, I still found the pre itself was so warm and juicy that it worked great for making the violin velvety thick (especially when I use a Royer 121 on it. You can't get much darker than that). I never ever have any trouble getting things to cut through just cuz it's a tad on the colored side. If you want brighter but still juicy, just pick a different mic.
    I have yet to dislike anything Chandler, even their plug-ins are phenomenal.

    Already a Classic

    I bought a TG Channel, two years ago from Sweetwater, and all I can tell you is that, this is the one, the others have to measure up to! Now, all I need is one more for stereo, and running my mixes thru. You can also use just the line input, for the great eq section, with other preamps you have for even more tonal colors. This TG sounds like a classic!
