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