SNAMM03: Eureka! New Presonus Recording Channel
The new recording channel - nice and flexible

The Presonus stand always looks good, with their stylish units on display there's a lot of sculpted and anodised aluminium glinting under the lights. The new Max Rack range looks particularly nice with the Tube Pre (watch out for upcoming review) and EQ 3B units stacked in the custom 1/3rd of a rack system with incorporated power supply. My eyes were particularly drawn to the new Eureka recording channel comprising of a Mic/Line input stage with gain, pad and 48v power, fully featured compressor and finally the fully parametric EQ and meter. The mic amp has variable impedance (50 Ohm - 1200 Ohms) making it ideal for use with the recently popularised ribbon mics (most mic amps have to be pushed very hard to get a decent signal from a ribbon). Another nifty feature is the tape saturation knob analog tape emulation. There's also an instrument / line input on the front panel for easy access. The EQ and Compressor can be ordered as desired and the Compressor features a side chain for built in de-essing and a soft knee switch. The meter can either show input gain or Compressor gain reduction. The Eureka is expected to ship in September and will retail for around $699
