Aphex distributor MSL Professional has announced that it is now shipping the manufacturer's new 500 Series modules and Project Channel into UK stores.
Aphex 500 Series modules include a range of high quality processing tools that fit into industry-standard 500 Series racks from various manufacturers. The series helps to create a practical "custom" solution that can be easily reconfigured by swapping out individual modules as required. The modules, some of which are inspired by classic Aphex processers, include the EXBB 500 (a 500 Series version of the popular Aural Exciter® and Big Bottom® audio enhancement processors), the J PRE and A PRE 500 mic pres which are known for their sonic clarity, (the J-PRE includes an input limiter and Jensen transformer), the EQF 500 3-band semi parametric EQ, the COMP 500 optical compressor and the DUAL RPA 500 2-channel tube mic pre.
Project Channel is an affordable high quality channel strip that combines a Class A microphone preamp and optical compressor with Aphex's patented Big Bottom and Exciter processors. Designed for ease of use, Project Channel's intuitive front panel controls enable sound to be precisely tailored to suit individual projects. The rack-mountable unit also offers rear panel analogue I/O, digital output and front panel instrument input, providing flexibility for a range of recording and performance situations.
