After many years of microphone manufacturing, JZ Microphones has decided to expand their product range with their first channel strip - JZ Track -produced by SPL in Germany. Here's what they have to say about it in their own words...
JZ Track is 1U mono unit Pre-amplifier completed with De-Esser, Compressor /Limiter stage, 3-band EQ stage, output stage with metering. Complete solution to record awesome vocals and instruments. This unit is made by SPL in Germany after JZ Microphones specifications. It is made to perfectly match impedance of JZ microphones and even more excel their unique characteristics and expanded harmonic range. The compressor can be linked with a second JZTrack compressor for coherent stereo operation of two units. Also JZ Microphones will offer optional AD Card with ADAT and SPDIF outputs.
Managing director of SPL, Hermann Gier, said, "When JZ Microphones asked us to make a special channel strip for them we were excited and proud at the same time. Our Track One was the ideal startinggrid for the 'JZ Track' project. Besides changing the looks we also did some nice refinements internally to give the JZ Track its individual sonic touch."
