SPL Frontliner Channel Strip

The SPL Frontliner Channel Strip features all tools you need to record vocals and instruments perfectly: it merges a preamp, a de-esser, an EQ, a compressor and tube saturation. Each component of this channel strip can be used individually in tracking or mixing applications.

The SPL Frontliner Channel Strip features three separate, individually optimized inputs for microphones, line signals and instruments:

1) The microphone input features 48V phantom power, phase reverse function and a subsonic filter.
2) The low-impedance Line input has a precise balancing stage for connecting studio equipment.
3) The low-noise, high-impedance instrument input is easily accessible on the front panel.

Thanks to it's individual analog I/Os, all these powerful, hi-end analog processors can be use not only while recording but also during mixing. The SPL Frontliner Channel Strip is therefore not reduced to a front-end device. Especially DAW based studios can integrate high-grade analog processing at any stage of the audio production process. Each Frontliner module has its own balanced inputs and outputs. Sophisticated switching options allow to integrate Frontliner’s modules into a studio environment as if they were stand-alone devices. You can also group modules in any combination and you can determine inserts at each module’s input. If you imagine the Frontliner modules as analog plugins, the additional value suddenly becomes apparent: this channel strip also is a versatile analog processing station. With one single unit, especially DAW based studios benefit from a first-class recording front-end and have access to high end analog processors.
