Grace Design FELiX overview

  • 1Description

The FELiX from Grace Design is a 2-channel preamp and EQ with blend control, intended for amplifying stringed instruments and microphones. Housed in a portable, black floor-unit chassis made from anodized aluminum and steel, FELiX delivers a high-quality, yet rugged preamplification solution to musicians, engineers, studios, rental companies, and venues.

FELiX's EQ section allows simple and intuitive tone shaping. Each channel features a high variable pass filter that cuts 12 dB per octave from 20 Hz to 1 kHz that also can be set as a notch filter for surgical problem correction. Both channels also have parametric midrange controls that cover from 70 Hz all the way to 8 kHz, while fixed low and high controls are carefully voiced for musical shading of bass and treble.

  • Open, musical and detailed instrument and mic preamplification for discerning artists and engineers
  • 2-channel audio path with blend output control
  • m101 style transimpedance microphone preamplifier, no electrolytic capacitors in the signal path
  • Precision 0.5% thin film resistors are used in the signal path
  • Careful power supply design and grounding yield quiet signal path and professional-level headroom and line driving ability
  • Fully ground-isolated DI outputs with high-quality, low-distortion, fully shielded transformers
  • Rugged 1/4” connectors with heavy-duty metal bushings
  • Powerful, independent EQ on both channels – hi and low shelving, and full parametric midrange
  • Mid frequency control has two ranges 70-880 Hz / 670 Hz-8 kHz
  • 20 Hz-1 kHz sweepable HPF on both channels, can also be set as notch filter
  • A/B footswitch for multiple instrument configurations or soloing different pickups
  • Mute/tune footswitch mutes all outputs except dedicated tuner out
  • Boost footswitch for variable 10 dB level boost (global)
  • DI outputs sources are configurable - Ch1 (mix or Ch1) Ch2 (mix or Ch2)
  • Dedicated level-controlled stage amp output (configurable as blend or Ch2)
  • Dedicated tuner out, remains hot when unit is muted
  • Side-panel switches for 48V, phase, mid Hz range select, HPF/notch select, 12V and A/B mode select
  • 12V mic input power available on Ch1 and Ch2 1/4" inputs
  • Phase reverse switch for each channel
  • 3 input impedance settings on each channel – Ch1 10 kOhms, 1 MOhms, 10 MOhms / Ch2 332 kOhms, 1 MOhms, 20 MOhms accommodating a wide range of pickup types
  • Aux footswitch jack for accessing switch functions if FELiX is mounted in a rack tray or on top of an amp
  • Mic stand flange mount screw holes for putting Felix on a mic stand
  • 1/8” headphone jack, active when FELiX is muted
  • Global TRS effects insert jack for inserting outboard processors into the signal chain
  • Universal 100-240 VAC power supply with standard IEC cable – no wall wart - take FELiX anywhere in the world!

    Grace Design FELiX reviews

    FELiX 2-Channel Preamp & EQ with Blend (Black) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Felix is fantastic I have to say I am blown away by the Felix. I always perform with two guitars and the ability to fine tune the quality of sound for each guitar, and then effortlessly toggle between them is exactly what I had been looking for. The clarity is stellar, and I haven't even explored everything it can do. A genius product and worth every dime!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Felix 2 is very powerful I am doing a single in Northern California and always looking for way to better my Martin. When I received the unit i was impress with the quality of the Felix. It as an amazing sound and when I plug a microphone into it, I am so surprised with the quality of the sound. This is a great unit and can be used as a mixer and DI for your guitar.
