  • Great Value, Just shy of "pro" level

    Art Pro ChannelPublié le 09/11/12 à 12:09
    The Art Pro Channel is a tube mic-pre and channel strip all in one.
    You get xlr and 1/4inch inputs and outputs.
    You get eq and compression/limiting.
    It is rack mountable.

    UTILIZATION

    As long as you are comfortable and experienced enough with EQ, compression, and fine-tuning a tube mic-pre you should have no problems whatsoever with getting good sounds out of the Pro Channel.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Like every other mic-pre or channel strip ever made the sound is not transparent. However, what you want is a unit that imparts a pleasant sound or colors the sound in a positive way.
    The eq section is quite adequate for preliminary adjustments.
    The compression is ok but not the best.
    The best part......

    The eq section is quite adequate for preliminary adjustments.
    The compression is ok but not the best.
    The best part is the tube preamp adjustments.
    Like all other Art preamps you may wish to replace the factory tube with another higher quality one. Groove Tubes and J-Tubes are common choices. Just find a replacement of the same tube type and experiment until you find the one most pleasing to you.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The best thing about the Art Pro Channel is the wide array of options available to shape and control your signal before your DAW or other recording unit. Also, all the features vs. the price make this an excellent choice for the thrifty home studio user.
    The eq section is very adequate and sounds quite good. Alot of small issues can be addressed before recording and can help out alot with your headphone mix while recording. The compression holds it's own though it's not outstanding. However, compression is a tricky animal, if you are proficient in using a compressor then you will be able to coax some good work from the Pro Channel. The best thing about the Pro Channel is the alternate preamp modes. It allows you to run it hard or moderately and still make adjustments from there which puts the preamp section of the Pro Channel above and beyond many of Art's lower priced preamp alone models.
    The overall signal output is quite clean and all the adjustments needed to ensure a well saturated, well colored tube sound without clipping out are right there at your fingertips.
    The Pro Channel stands up well against many higher priced competitors but, be honest with yourself, it will never sound better than an SSL channel strip nor a Neve. You get what you pay for for, and with the Pro Channel that's actually quite a bit and surprisingly good quality for the price. Art did a good job with this unit, it's probably one of their best products ever.
    I'm rather fond of this unit though I have used much better. It's a solid choice for the engineer that doesn't have a couple thousand dollars to purchase one single channel strip.
    I would definitely suggest the Pro Channel, as always Art is a "best bang for the buck" company.

    Any lamp or transistor, to choose from!
    Preamp, comp, eq, low-cut, just missing a small gate (but that's nothing, especially since we can add to the mix)
    Balanced XLR and Jack

    UTILIZATION

    Very simple to set up, months to implement, I use it mainly for vocals. I must say that I hesitated a long time, but since I is a true revolution in the studio! coupled with the AKG C414B XLII sound is perfect, nothing to say.
    Only problem, when I put the comp tube with a short attack, I cut the beginning of the attack (which can be quite annoying) as the attack and release are regulated by a button slow / fast. My advice .. just not too much force on the comp (even after adding in the mix,......

My advice .. just not too much force on the comp (even after adding in the mix, which also sound better foix 10)

    SOUND QUALITY

    I record the votes and rap songs (hence the mix of voice is important). I've never been up to the clipper, but it seems it's not bad. Otherwise, the voices are swollen, but the result is hardly noticeable! It's just magical. However, under the advice of a friend I'd have to sell it to buy something "more pro" type universal audio etc ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    What I like most is all the lamps, although may say, the voice is much clearer and more worthy of a quality recording! Without staining is abusive!

    Exellent value for money (I think it's the only one in the price range) after it is universal audio etc, but it's expensive for a difference not so noticeable.

    I chilled this choice!

    SOUND QUALITY

    I'm pretty particular bluff by the compressor. I had quite a compressor, including a Manley Variable Mu is the REFERENCE for mastering. The compressor is super transparent. It does not pump, thank you for the lights! It is a pleasure. To date, no software has such compressor performance. It provides voice recording with more security without risk of saturating btement Nazer and the outlet.

    The EQ is really effective. I do not use it personally because I prfre APRS color the sound the sound. But it takes a little time to matriser.

    The receiver is of the same level as the MPA GOLD. So pramp trs good of quality, no color but color has a transistor preamp especially in case of saturation.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I am satisfied with my purchase trs. At this price (400 EUR) is a vritable case. 2-3 years ago there was a need for a 1000 EUR + channel of this quality.
    To save the voice that really changed me life.
    I recommend it to any studio that wants to do something really pro, voice, or instrument miking of quality is Essenciel and again, it's an incredibly low price compared the quality of sound and finish.

    These are tubes, and it sounds clear and clean without staining abusive.
    A prmpli for between a mono, effect, compressor and qualiseur
    XLR and jack
    Rackable

    UTILIZATION

    Super simple
    the manipulation for each effect and rgal, must be a free environment ds polutions sonor course, and the machine rvle all its finesse.
    No manual in french. It's not really useful but I think four is not cool.

    Just to complete what has been said before:
    It's just a slice tube = préampcompeq.
    The comp and eq on each bypass
    Analog VU meter and gain reduction LED
    three important points:
    - Choice of optical tube comp
    - The signal path and changeable almost at will (eg préampeqcomp). But the switch is done by external wiring (I would prefer buttons but frankly I quibble)
    - Each floor can be used individually simultaneously.

    UTILIZATION

    Super simple, but after reading the manual I understood all the possibilities (and extra) of the machine. After comparing the way more "classical" préampeqcomp with the original path préampcompeq I realized the ruthlessly efficient and accurate it......

    UTILIZATION

    Super simple, but after reading the manual I understood all the possibilities (and extra) of the machine. After comparing the way more "classical" préampeqcomp with the original path préampcompeq I realized the ruthlessly efficient and accurate it (singing and speaking voice, rap, guitar, bass, viola).
    To precisely manages warmth, presence, waste, color is an accurate tool, but also powerful (the comp can be heard if we want to be cleaned and eq, see colorful highly inflated, if desired, as well as the input stage).

    SOUND QUALITY

    For instruments, I prefer remained initially very transparent, and then I carve a little with the eq. I prefer the guitar or bass players manage their grain and color with their stuff. For voice, I do what I want, it does not bother me or limits jamais.Je want to re test with my old microphones. And I'm no longer want to try some micro tube top (too much light kills the lamp?).

    OVERALL OPINION

    for 8 months
    experiences with behringer, art, mindprint, preamp sound card or mixer, but this is my first "real" analog portion.
    I like his versatility and modular side, and that it's transparent color when it wants.
    I do not switched by external wiring on the rear of the rack, as a result I do not do it as often as I would like ...
    A digital output missing? may be ...
    Excellent quality / prix.Pour the same budget, I would do this choice.

    First I have no idea why she's in the transistors, it is a class A preamp LAMP!

    UTILIZATION

    In home studio!

    SOUND QUALITY

    But really wow wow! I was using before a tube pre (Presonus) and it's really not the same thing! It is completely in another GAMIC''Pro''with Chanel! Used for voice, the preamp can be used without the compressor or EQ (c bypass is all). The sound is really warm without being too (exactly what I wanted)! The compressor is PERFECT! You can choose a Tube or Optical (If I'm not mistaken a tube accelerates the attack) The only small thing is that you can not choose the speed of release (But I knew when I buy then!
