Description
 
Perfect for project and professional studio owners alike, Joemeek's sixQ2 channel strip gives you everything you'd expect from a premium channel strip - and a whole lot more! Everything starts with a clean mic pre that is switchable to a more vintage-styled "Iron" setting with special transformer coupling. Next up is the star of the sixQ2 - the legendary Joemeek optical compressor! That's right; the same sound that made Joemeek gear famous is right here inside the sixQ2. There's also a highly musical 3-band EQ to shape your sound on the way to recording. Joemeek pushed it one step further by including both analog and digital I/O on the back panel. Whether you're an analog purist looking for a new variety of color, or a digital enthusiast chasing vintage vibe, you'll find the Joemeek sixQ2 channel strip to be a welcome addition to your rack!

Switchable transformer coupling for two distinct sonic flavors
One of the most useful features of Joemeek's sixQ2 channel strip is the switchable transformer coupling, which lets you choose between two different sonic signatures. Switched off, you get the vibrantly transparent sound of Joemeek's renowned Burr-Brown IC preamp, letting you hear the uncolored sound of your microphone and source sound. Switch the "Iron" mode on, and an iron transformer is switched into the signal path for a decidedly colorful character. Which setting to use depends on your sources and requirements of your mix, and you'll love having the ability to choose what's right for each recording you make.

The famous Joemeek optical compressor
Joemeek's optical compressor has earned a solid reputation in broadcast, production, and mixing circles, thanks to its uncanny ability to produce great results quickly on virtually any type of program material. And thanks to the sixQ2's addition of a highpass filter before the compressor circuit, you can cut out low rumble that you may not want the compressor to respond to for a cleaner overall sound.

A true studio workhorse
The sonic versatility of the Joemeek sixQ2 channel strip makes it ideal for recording everything from detailed acoustic instruments and vocals all the way to raging guitar amps and direct-recorded bass guitar. And whether you prefer to track "flat" or with compression and EQ fully engaged, the sixQ2 has all the functionality - and impeccable sound quality - you need to get the sound right on the first take.

Joemeek sixQ2 Channel Strip Features:
  • Channel strip with microphone preamplifier, optical compressor, and 3-band EQ, with analog and digital outputs
  • Iron transformer can be switched in/out of signal path for two completely different sonic characteristics
  • Highpass filter before compressor circuit prevents it from reacting to extreme low frequencies and making your mix muddy
  • Accepts mic, instrument, and line-level sources - a true studio workhorse
  • Third EQ band is switchable between 6kHz/12kHz to focus on the needs of different sound sources - add "air" to vocals, or snap and attack to drums
