Joemeek threeQ Channel Strip

The Joemeek threeQ Channel Strip offers one channel of a professional recording studio in a small box. Simple to use yet extremely powerful, the threeQ will bring out the best in any microphone or instrument and give the gloss of a professional studio production to all your performances.

The Joemeek threeQ Channel Strip is the perfect link between your music and your computer. The Joemeek threeQ Channel Strip will bring out the best qualities or your music by giving it the "gloss" of a professional recording studio, at a fraction of the cost! Built into a compact ½" rack chassis, the Joemeek used the same Burr-Brown IC's for the Mic Pre that you'll find on their more expensive studio channels. The Joemeek then added an extremely musical EQ section and an optical Compressor, for that signature "Meek" sound. With inputs to accept everything between microphone and instrument levels, the Joemeek threeQ sounds much larger than it's size!

Lots of Bang for the Buck! March 1, 2011
Reviewer: Jason Dickerson from Tustin, CA United States  
It's a great little cheap channel strip. Tpre is very quiet & clean, the EQ is very usable but the Compressor will make or break this for a lot of people. The Compressor section is extremely colored, to my ears, in a very good way! You'll either love it or hate it. I love it. One good thing, if you like everything except for the Compressor section, it, as well as the EQ section, can be switched out of the signal chain... And, in my opinion, the Pre alone is worth the price.

Thanks for the eye time.

great and affordable! December 6, 2005
Reviewer: Jason Caffee from Columbia, SC United States  
I tried one of these out a while ago and really liked it.  It's a great little unit with lots of warmth and character.   It has a great smooth sound.  I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a super deal on a fun and simple channel strip with tons of tonal possibilities.
