MESSE08: Channel Strip With Flexible I/O


SPL tell us that their new Frontliner channel strip combines Preamp, De-Esser, Compressor, EQ and Tube Output for a fully featured recording channel, but they have also added dedicated I/Os to each section because the particular stages would also be a great addition to an engineers mixing tools arsenal.
Each stage can be used separately and, for example, be routed via a patchbay to insert the whole toolbox into a studio environment.
The Frontliner features a hybrid, Class A preamp design with discrete solid state stage and a tube section with switchable drive settings. SPL say that, as an high-quality and very flexible alternative, it will be the top of the line product in their range of channel strips.

Availability of the Frontliner is scheduled for October 2008. More information:
