The Shelford Channel Transformer Gain Mic Preamp, Inductor EQ, and Diode Bridge Compressor from Rupert Neve Designs is the evolution of the original technologies of his classic console modules like the 1073, 1064, 1081, and 2254. The Shelford Channel has been refined for the 21st century studio and can be used as a front-end channel for controlling audio signals in studio applications and more.
Featuring a single XLR mic input with 48V phantom, a single XLR line input and XLR outputs, the Shelford Channel is built with a 1/4" line input and a thru connector. Side-chain TS send and return, and two link connectors, are also provided. Outstanding features include the inductor EQ section, the tone-packed Diode bridge compressor, the analog power of variable Silk saturation, and a dual-tap transformer output stage with twice the operating voltage of vintage designs that allows the full driving of the Channel without clipping standard converters.
With richly colored tonal options for making bold statements with your music and precisely engineered detented controls for recall, the vintage-inspired Shelford Channel maintains the soul of Rupert's Neve's classic designs with new levels of versatility.
