SPL Channel One - Channel Strip w/ AD Converter

  • Transistor/tube preamplifier
  • SPL's De-Esser
  • Compressor/limiter with noise gate
  • EQ section
  • Headphone monitor
  • 24bit/192 kHz AD converter card w/ S/PDIF out

  • The microphone input features 48V phantom power, phase reverse function and a subsonic filter.
  • The low-impedance Line input has a precise balancing stage for connecting studio equipment.
  • The low-noise, high-impedance instrument input is easily accessible on the front panel.
The renowned SPL De-Esser subtly yet effectively removes offending sibilants by reliably eliminating only the frequencies with its unique phase-cancelling processing technology. Auto-Threshold ensures constant processing even with varying microphone distances. All you need do is to turn the knob until the sibilants are gone.

Insert (Send/Return)
The Insert (Send/Return) allows for insertion of external processors or can be used to record the pure preamplifier signal.


This section is based on SPL's Double-VCA-Drive circuitry for outstanding noise and distortion characteristics. The compressor is extremely easy to use via a single knob. But the signal-dependent automation not only allows for set and forget operation, it also grants very muscial results in any situation. Actually it is much more difficult to destroy a recording with wrong compression settings.

Noise Gate

The noise gate operates flawlessly - reverbs are recognized and not cut off.

Three band EQ
The Channel One provides a new EQ design especially optimized to process vocals, acoustic and electronic instruments. Low, Mid Hi, and Air-Bands allow for both corrective adjustments and/or effective sound designing processing. Gadget: a distortion control might be useful sometimes to apply for decent distortions to signals that deserve it.

Headphone monitor stage
Provides an individual mix for the singer/speaker - latency problems from digital systems are avoided.

24Bit/192kHz AD Converter Module 1090

The Analog/Digital Converter Module 1090 is an optional digital output for compatible SPL units (see below) with a plug-and-play design for easy installation. It offers an S/P-DIF output with both coaxial and optical connectors in parallel.

The heart of the module is a 24-bit converter with a variable sample rate of up to 192 kHz. Highly accurate quartz oscillators ensure a clean, low-jitter master clock. The internal sample rate can be switched between 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96 kHz. Other sample rates (32, 176,4 and 192 kHz are set by external syncronization. The converter can be synced to other digital devices via a S/P-DIF input.

The internal oscillators are automatically disabled when an external clock signal is present to prevent interference.

An extremely effective voltage stabilizing circuit ensures that the converter continuously receives sufficient and stable voltage an important prerequisite for clean, transparent audio.

The compact design of the input stage guarantees the shortest possible signal path to the converter. Overdimensioned grounding surfaces on both sides of the circuit board effectively reduce interference and ensure optimal separation between analog and digital components.
