The ART Voice Channel is the answer to your recording and computer audio interface needs. Built to provide the ideal all-in-one input solution for analog or digital recording the ART VoiceChannel is a true second-generation discrete Class-A microphone preamp capable of providing clean quiet gain while maintaining incredible transparency. An integrated fully variable powerful dynamics processor subtly controls transients and noise of the most demanding sources while the VoiceChannel’s semi-parametric EQ offers wide tunability. For added versatility the EQ can be patched before or after the dynamics processor while separate insertion jacks allow you quick quiet in-line connectivity to external signal processing gear immediately after the mic pre-amp before the EQ and dynamics processor in the signal path. Another insert patch point exists just before the A/D converters. Choose between a wide range of outputs including balanced analog output 44.1 KHz to 192 KHz AES/EBU S/PDIF ADAT and USB. Both analog and digital meters provide a detailed indication of audio levels.
