Musical EQ weird compressor
It got nice preamps with switchable audio transformers, pad, phase, a compressor, an equalizer and digital output. The equalizer gives very nice results, it feels right what it does. The compressor part is not my go to compressor for average tasks, but it can create very unique and good sounding percussive material. It is not the compressor what I use for a little compression not for the entire track or bus, more for a selected channel where I want to give it a real punch. The digital output is a very nice feature. It makes the integration of the outboard into the DAW pretty easy. There is a newer version where the input transformer is also switchable for the line level input.
Dual channel-strip with mic preamp, dynamics compressor, eq and A/D Interface.
