Simply absolutely delicious sound refiner

DanB Jazz & Vocal Arts, 13.09.2012
Among the microphone preamplifiers is the classic for me in any case the Channel One. Also offered with Lundahl technology (even more noble sounding converters) one can look again in the budget, which is a dear. In my opinion one needs extraordinary golden ears in order to perceive a difference.

What the Channel One can do is an incredibly compact, full and authentic sound. The switchable EQ with two parametric mids allows for an incredibly soft processing of voices and intruments, which makes it possible to provide all types of sound with the right heat and presence. The air band filter is a real magician in terms of high altitude and can even get a sparkle out of a perfect muff microphone. A thick compressor, a usable de-esser and a noise gate let this device, which I really only use for Studiozecke to become an attractive device, in order to miss the necessary portion of tube sound in a live, a real, warm and full Voice.

The operation is simple and intuitive, learning by doing and the device is absolutely great processed. Earlier, we had the Goldmike and the result here is audibly better. Anyone who plans to invest on the order of 700-1500 EUR for such a device should opt for the Channel One.

Entry into professional sound

Erich B., 30.01.2010
My vocal recordings with a Neumann TLM 103 are now absolutely professional.
The song sounds airy and goes through excellently. Would not have thought that there are such differences.

Especially the airband filter gives the recordings a special character. The de-esser does his job very well, which was also a reason for me to buy this device. The Compressor is very easy to adjust with only one controller and operates normally. The EQ does not allow extreme interventions in the material, but it is not intended for this purpose either.

A good ovation with the Channel One played, almost one of the stool. Overall, the Channel One is both fast and simple to use. A good result is achieved quickly.

Unfortunately, the inscription is very small and confusing. Likewise, the gain controls are quite light and do not have a grid. The plastic jacks also do not work very well.

Regarding the sound quality, a very good investment and recommendable at any time. Have seen that I need to spend a little more money to get a special sound.
