The Channel Strip is a complete input module with mic pre, dynamics processing, EQ and output level control. It offers extensive signal metering, multiple balanced insert points and an output mute switch. The multifunction unit features the 512c preamp, with additional mic, line or Instrument input switching; the 527 multi-mode Compressor, with fully adjustable Threshold, Attack, Release, and Ratio controls on detented pots and the patented THRUST circuit.
The Channel Strip also features the 550A three-band Equalizer, with switchable frequencies and 12dB of boost or cut. Its output unit is the 325 Line Driver, taken directly from API console designs with an output level pot and 10 segment meter. Each of The Channel Strip’s processing pieces can be switched in or bypassed individually, while a flip switch internally routes the compressor after the EQ if desired. Additional features include a sidechain input and the API 2520/transformer combination.
