The Avalon VT-747 is a single channel strip that contains a high end pre-amp as well as a compressor and a graphic equalizer. It is an all analog unit that is tube based in terms of power. It has XLR connections in the back and is a rack mountable unit that will take up two rack space units.
The Avalon VT-747 is pretty easy to use if you have any experience with channel strips, but may take a bit of getting used to otherwise simply because there are so may different parameters and uses for this unit. While it would take too long to go in depth about each of the parameters, suffice it to say that there is an incredible amount of control over your signal, making the Avalon VT-747 a versatile unit that not only sounds great but gives you are palette of options in order to get the exact sound you are looking for.
The sounds all across the board on the Avalon VT-747 are absolutely top notch. The pre-amp is extremely warm sounding and will present the signal coming in accurately without leaving out any of the details. The compressor is also quite good sounding, with plenty of parameters to get that perfect tone. The EQ section sounds crisp and clear, containing seven bands of preset frequencies. Another great feature of the Avalon VT-747 is the side-chain and high pass and low pass options, ensuring that you can eliminate any unwanted noise.
I’ve only been using the Avalon VT-747 for about six months, but I loved this unit from the first time I used it. It is a great pre-amp for recording anything and the compression and graphic EQ features only add to the versatility of the unit. Since the Avalon VT-747 will cost you a pretty penny, I would only recommend this for professional engineers looking for the best possible tone no matter what the cost. Overall, the is Avalon VT-747 is one of the great modern day made channel strips out there, and is loved by professionals all over.

U-FLYstudio's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
A machine flateuse common sense of the word even if it remains in a log boom and very modern plutt "varitquot; as" English pop and electro. "It allows a lot of thing Internal-detection circuit (sidechain), which work the compressor (if desired)
* Please note that the detection circuit adopts a screen printing a little disturbing, is chosen frequencies and when a module to a minimum, we add in the detection circuit is a bit strange but still a certain logic more than in the final signal is precisely this which will be Reduces frquence in Premire.
All controls are Submitted, and attack time and release trs not crunch for sure. It's a bit the opposite of a PLC 2500. Nevertheless the 747 back in the mix just these little parliaments at their wealth, but not as beautiful fawn a Manley Vari-Mu for example!. I do not think we should think anything with the release is often too slow and even rgl at least it will leave you a little about your hunger if you're used to more basic products and destructive .
* Do not hesitate, however, use the knob "input" that changes color much of the rest of the circuit through the next selected position! try pushing the input and lowering the bottom almost to the mini "the output", the machine will react completely differently and the TSP will generate some fine dishes harmonic
* For the enthusiast mdium you can choose lamps "Sylvania January 6922" to replace the Sovtek, the mdium Legrant become more typical and music! ($ 30 in the lamp) in tube here must.
Quality high-end modern! with a slight breath commissioning of the passive equalizer, it is besides a bit of an incomprehensible machine of this price and both built for the rest of the circuit, especially since that's what little EQ Its just the perfect for those who like Avalon. the compressor is it perfectly discrete and complete, even if it gives the sensation of slowness of the needle VU meter confirms right away!
6-band passive equalizer to give a taste of the color of 2055, all proportions guards. The zipper dernire 32 kHz channels paired with light output (3x 6922)
by the cons, say anything, trs beautiful lamp color, without any saturation is very modern (we like it or not!,
will give away this DEFINITIONS that flatters the ear, (not an obligation either!)
Sometimes it is necessary to calm down even with this machine because customers really like THE FIRST 15Hz and 32kHz dernire pull the equalizer, to be flattering for is flattering!
A comparison if you have the time with an Empirical Labs Stereo, an API 2500 Stereo Compressor XL or SSL in same price range. See anything, the 747 is an opto modern, slow and totally unlike the silky collgues.
A machine that its versatility is quite interesting:
Mastering analog insertion stro bus, keyboards, vocals, etc ...
shame he's so soft and Eq pressure with a! but there are tricks!
for the rest, torturing the touch buttons with "envy" and can be done all rsultats interesting ...
I had one 6 years ago I kept two years, I am tired and I've sold, but I have a ratchet deuxime I ended up sell now also take a Manley Vari-Mu.
