Art Voice ChannelPublished on 02/07/10 at 19:56
The Art Voice Channel is an all-in-one channel strip and interface, with a built in microphone preamp, equalizer, and preamplifier. In terms of connections, it has an XLR/1/4" input on the front, as well as both 1/4" and XLR connections in the back. It also has ADAT, word clock, and a USB output to send it to your computer. It is rackable, as will take up two rack spaces in a traditional rack mount.

UTILIZATION

While there is definitely a lot of parameters and features to work with on the Art Voice Channel, after breaking down the unit a little bit I think you'll see that everything is pretty straight forward and that there isn't anything too out of the ordinary here. The mic pre has gain and impedance knobs as well as phantom power, a pad, invert (phase), and a lot cut option. The compressor has parameters for threshold, ratio, attack, and release, as well as de-esser with parameters for de-essing frequency and gain. There is also a gating feature available. The equalizer is made up of four bands, with the mid bands having both frequency and gain parameters, and the high and low just having gain. Lastly, there is an option for sample rate and an overall output leveler. As you can tell, there is a lot going on, so if you feel like you might need some assistance, the manual is probably a good thing to have around.

SOUND QUALITY

While the Art Voice Channel doesn't boast the most impressive tones available, it definitely makes up for this in versatility. While it is called a 'voice' channel, this most certainly can be used in a variety of situations as I have used it for both electric guitar and bass guitar in addition to vocals. Since it is tube based it does have a good amount of warmth, but isn't the cleanest sounding unit in general as it goes with thickness over clarity. Don't be fooled by the title though, this is an extremely versatile piece of gear...

OVERALL OPINION

Considering the price, the Art Voice Channel is definitely made for home studio owners more than anyone else, as it is a great deal. Having all sorts of signal processing in a single unit at this price is really a great thing for home studio owners, but the sound quality isn't up to par for professionals. Having said this, if you're a home studio owner looking for a versatile channel strip that will give you some outside of the box warmth on a number of different fronts, definitely scope out the Art Voice Channel.

Preamp tube with numerous functions.

We can also use these functions (gate, eq, compressor, converter) without going through the preamp. The connectivity is great provided. You can enter several types of microphone, instrument or line level.

UTILIZATION

Simple, as long as you know how a strip.
I did not use the USB but it seems it's not the strong point.

SOUND QUALITY

For 500 euro, it is surely better preamps.

on the other hand, at this price point a slice with an excellent compressor and eq, it runs less on the streets.
