2 new Aphex 500 Series audio processors
Aphex announces the availability of two new processors in API 500 formats, the Project 500 channel strip and CX 500 gate and compressor.
The Aphex Project 500 is a channel strip module featuring a Class A preamp, an optical compressor, an overlapping two-band EQ, and a Jensen JT-11DL transformer to balance the output. The preamp and compressor are taken from the Aphex Project Channel, the EQ section is inspired by the EQF 500 module.
MSRP is 480€.
The CX 500 combines the Aphex Logic-Assisted Gate and EasyRider auto compressor. Gate and compressor are designed to work together in an integrated system: enabling the gate prevents the compressor from raison the signal level while the gate is trying to lower it. The gain reduction is then frozen until the gate opens again, which prevents from level jumps.
Controls available on the CX 500 include threshold, attack, hold, release, speed, depth and output level. A LED bargraph meters either the output level or gain reduction. MSRP is 600€.
