SPL Frontliner 2800

First, an overall evaluation of the SPL Frontliner 2800. The result as an intro can save a seeker considerably time.

The frontliner does exactly what it should and at an unbeatable price in the upper middle class! With his options, he teaches the feats of the upper class. The quality, haptics and usability are very good and the value is high.

If you have the money and a super Chanel Strip needs, here is undoubtedly correct.

For me quite clear cinema!

The important features that make the SPL stand out clearly against other applicants:

There is an optional digital board for DAW. This means that the quality of the analogue event can end up in the digital world without serious converter losses.

The sections PreAmp / DeEsser / Compressor / EQ can be switched separately. All stages can be balanced symmetrically in / out. The effects can be used separately and independently. External sources can be looped in and unblocked. The device is functional very well thought out.

The sections work for themselves all perfectly and are standard knowledge very easy to use. I would like to do without detailed discussions. There are three features that are nevertheless outstanding. These are DeEsser, Air and EQ-Tube Saturation.

The DeEsser also works at higher dosage inconspicuous and weakens the hissing off without rumzuhacken. The Air function ensures a high-quality and pleasant glow without getting too sharp at higher values. Also the EQ behaves very smart overall. The EQ Tube Saturation provides rich tones and has a tonic color in the direction of Brit sound. Super that the tube saturation works with the EQ and one can switch this section before the Compressor.

So, now briefly to the operation. With the front line I edit vocals, acoustic guitar, bass and the microphone pickup of electric guitars. For all these recording areas I can make the following statements.

In general, no sound coloring is produced if this is not explicitly requested. The gain of the preamp (mic / line) is impressive, extremely clean and also with tougher gait without noise. The overall system is relatively overdriven and the internal adjustments of level jumps among the working sections work very well in perspective to the master level or output signal. This means, if one is tinkered in the sections of the modules different volumes do not have to be constantly adjusted. You can bend signals also crassly, but does not really make sense in the recording mode. The strengths of a neat Chanel Strip lie in the refinement of the raw material. In this case, you should be able to see clear advantages over the original signal with a light dose.

With this unit the absolute AHA-EFFECT is performed when listening to and editing the MIX. The signals are freer, have more pressure and sound more transparent. More filigree contributions can thus still exist in the louder environment.

An extremely complete and precise Swiss knife

Sophie1892, 19.12.2013
This is by far a very good value for money -
2 lamps one for mic and one for equalization
Transistor for compressor
Smart sensor
Complete connectors at the rear for use in separate outputs for mastering for example
Light diodes with different colors and it reminds me of the excellent focusrite red 7
Doc very well written in a technical English and reference drawings
Many positive points with this very precise machine - I also recommend its little brother the track one gray also.
