Tube-Tech MMC1A Channel Strip

The Tube-Tech MMC1A Channel Strip is a full-blown microphone preamplifier and multiband compressor with outstanding sonic properties!

Following the path of success shown by the much-acclaimed Tube-Tech SMC2B Stereo Multiband Compressor, Tube-Tech is proud to introduce their latest technological achievement: A full-blown microphone preamplifier & multiband compressor with outstanding sonic properties, the Tube-Tech MMC1A Channel Strip.

The Tube-Tech MMC1A Channel Strip makes wonders in recording or mixing difficult sources like very dynamic voices or instruments where the tonal character changes with level. The Tube-Tech MMC1A can deliver "automated" control where it normally takes loads of work to achieve perfect results.

Many singers have been "saved" by the Tube-Tech MMC1A. Do yourself a favor and try the MMC1A on bass, acoustic or electric. It's amazing how it makes the instrument sit perfect in the mix! MMC1A also opens up new and exciting creative possibilities in recording and mixing full range sources.

The Tube-Tech MMC1A Channel Strip encompasses a complete front-end, including an additional Direct Instrument input as well as a separate line input.

The microphone input has switchable loading impedance, phantom power, phase reversal and a -20 dB Pad. All inputs are equipped with a low-cut filter.

The 3-band optical compressor is designed to maintain optimum summing of all three bands with a remarkably flat frequency response. A bypass switch shorts out the whole compressor.

Mic. Input/Output are balanced and have fully floating transformers with a static screen. The Line Input is unbalanced, but an optional transformer is available.

The power supply and the sidechain circuits are based on a solid state circuit. With the exception of the output stage all DC voltages are stabilized.
