CS2-FA Vacuum Tube Dual Channel Strip
Preamplifier / Equalizer / Limiter


Two Complete Channel strips - ready for Dual Mono or Stereo linked use. You can track two different mics through it, or record a stereo pair with it. Loop through it during mix down for that great real analog 'plug-in' (times two.) Link it in stereo as a Bus Processor for vocals, instruments, or percussion groups; or use it as an analog stereo Mastering Processor.


A three tube preamp in the vintage Putnam console style, with continuous Gain and Level controls. A passive parametric three-band EQ in the classic Pultec style, with all the familiar frequencies and curves. A unique two tube implementation of the UREI 1176, preserving the FET attenuator character and controls of the original.
