API The Channel Strip Pre/EQ/Compressor/Line Driver Channel Strip
API The Channel Stripincludes the famed 512c mic Preamp, the 550A three-band Equalizer, the 527 multi-mode Compressor and the 325 Line Driver, all well-known and highly-coveted pieces in their own right, now packaged together.
The 512c is an all-discrete mic/instrument/line preamp designed to provide an unusually good sounding front-end for all types of audio recording applications. Sonically, it gives you the distinct API sound, high quality performance, and low noise.
The 550A Equalizer provides reciprocal equalization at 21 points in seven steps of boost to a maximum of 12dB of gain or attenuation at each point. the fifteen equalization points are divided into three overlapping, and a band-pass filter may be inserted independently of all other selected equalization settings. Frequency ranges and boost/cut are selected by three dual-concentric switches, and a pushbutton "IN" switches on the EQ to be silently introduced into the signal path. A small toggle switch is used to insert the band-pass filter into the 550A EQ.
The 527 compressor uses the 2510 and 2520 discrete op-amps and exhibits the reliability, long life, and signature sound which are characteristic of API products.
The output section of The Channel Strip includes an Insert, output fader, soft mute (CUT), and the API 325 Line-Driver output circuit taken directly from API console designs.
The 10-segment LED VU meter can be switched to monitor the output level of The Channel Strip or the output of the 512c preamp.
