Presonus Studio Channel

Channelstrip with tube amplification, EQ and compressor

Presonus offers the Studio Channel, a channel strip that convinces not only with its tube amplification, but also with a VCA-based compressor and a flexible equalizer The clear structure of the individual sections, the bright VU meter and the feel of the individual operable elements make the Studio Channel the ideal companion both in the studio and in live operation.

If you take a closer look at the Studio Channel, you will notice the following: A very high headroom, the very fast and musical VCA compression and the power of the semi- and partly fully parametric EQ. Together with the balanced line and microphone inputs and the option to expand with an optional expansion card, the Presonus studio channel is a very good choice for anyone who doesn't want to do without good sound.

The Class A 12AX7 Vacuum-Tube Preamplifier

The Class A 12AX7 Vacuum-Tube preamplifier of the Studio Channel scores especially with its unique sound, which can be adjusted in many different ways in combination with the Tube-Drive control. However, it also offers additional options
for every studio day, such as the 48V Phantom Power for condenser microphones and the high-pass filter, which is used at 80Hz
The -20 dB pad switch also allows extremely loud signals to be attenuated and thus better integrated into the overall context.

Even a polarity reverse switch is included.

Fast and musical - the VCA compressor

To capture even the fastest transients of e.g. slap basses or snares, Presonus has opted for a VCA compressor. In addition to standard functions such as Threshold, Ration, Attack, Release and Gain, the accurateVCA
various control buttons:

  • Auto Attack/Release: automatic application of presets
  • Soft: Regulates the knee-behaviour
  • EQ>Comp: Sequence between EQ and compressor is changed in the channel
  • GR To Meter: Gain reduction is displayed on the VU Meter

Sufficient flexibility to be prepared for every situation!

3 tapes - many possibilities

Divided into 2 semi-parametric (for low and high frequencies) and one parametric midband, there are many possibilities. Treble and bass can be switched between shelving and peak and have a fixed Q factor
, while the midband can be freely configured
As with the compressor, a bypass function has been installed for direct A-B comparison.

Robust housing in 19" format

Many functions do not necessarily require a lot of space - the robust housing can be installed in any 19" rack thanks to its shape and takes up hardly any space with one height unit. The stable workmanship not only makes the studio channel suitable for studio use
also withstands more hectic live use
