TG Channel MKII Mic Pre/EQ
The Chandler Limited TG Channel
is a recreation of several classic EMI circuits. It combines a TG2 pre amp
section with an equilizer that was adapted from a circuit in the TG12410
Transfer console. This console was the mastering counterpart to the
original"Beatles desks" installed at Abbey Road.
The active portions of the unit use the same discrete amplifiers and
transformers as in the TG1 Limiter and TG2 pre amp. The passiveequilizer
portion of the EQ is an all inductor design and offers sweet high
frequencies with large inductor based lows, and a very high"Q" mid cut
section. Although not designed as such, due to its passive inductor design
the unit will inevitably draw comparisons to thePultec EQP-1a3, a VERY
simple description would be to call it an EMI Pultec with an EMI pre amp
Input - Combines 600ohm mic input andand a 10k line input which is
selectable withthe line switch. The fifteen position switchattenuates mic
and line and gives a large rangeof control for normal and not so normal
uses.mic gain -15db to +55dbline gain -25db to +45db
Output- Functioning as a console fader, this control isplaced after the
input stage and before the out put stage.This allows for trimming of ther
input signal, as well asallowing the user to run the input very hot (for
extra coloration)without distorting the recorder.
High EQ- A highboost control with 18dbof gain and a select switch that
combinesshelf and peak settings. Peak characteristicis resistor capacitor
based and the peak typesare inductor style.16k, 12k, 8.1k, 6.8k shelf.5.8
k, 3.9k, 2.2k, 1.8k, 1.2k peak.Mid EQ- A mid frequency EQ with 20db of
cutwith six points set at very sharp "Q". Speciallydesigned to fix problem
areas. All inductor based.300, 400, 800, 1.7k, 3.3k, 6.8k
Low EQ- A low boost control with20db of gain and a select switch
thatcombines shelf and peak settings. Both peak and shelf
characteristicsare inductor based. Also, On the peak settings"Q" gets
sharper with more boost.30, 65, 165 shelf.50, 70, 100, 200 peak.
Low cut at 50hz.Hi "Q" for mid peak frequencies.48 voltphase reverse.
