The Tube Station 1 (TS1) offers a wide dynamic range Class A mic/instrument pre-amp which can be assigned either to the onboard stereo tube compressor or alternatively to an external destination via its own dedicated output. The compressor can be accessed independently via its own inputs for warming and fattening stereo mixes.
In addition to a variable high-pass control, the mic pre-amp features an HF contour control which offers high frequency enhancement to add presence and clarity to the human voice and acoustic instruments. A variable Tube Drive control allows user-definable amounts of saturation. The TS1 offers digital outputs on SPDIF or AES/EBU at up to 24 bit resolution and 96K sample rate. Simultaneous analogue outputs are available on balanced XLR.
