Analog channel strip with 2u rack preamp (two modes, with or without output transformer), optical compressor, EQ with 4 bands on two mediums paramtriques bands, de-esser and enhancer. Inputs / outputs on XLR and jack symtriques and numrique outputs AES / EBU, SPDIF optical. nothing is missing.

UTILIZATION

A manual "Ethiopia" and nothing is really explained in terms of sample rglages, nanmoins corresctement Describes the machine and functions DIFFERENT floors. At the same time, it's not a space shuttle and quickly found its brands (I also TwinQ a dj so I know the philosophy of the brand). The preamp is clean trs without the "iron" and much more engaged with color. The EQ is very effective and trs least 40 dBs paste it on rglages remains clean. The big piece is the compressor. It is trsdlicat rgler and sends the wood trs violently RULES ds that the attack a little short and the ratio lev. So for soft sources (acoustic guitar, vocals fminines, classical instruments like a violin for example), let the attack tab (100ms) and the ratio to 2:1 or 3:1, and compresses without ca violence, instead of a kick, if vou s want to emphasize, just a short attque 5:1 and you kick it goes through walls. Like its big ERRF stro, he excels in direct box for bass, and is comfortable on almost everything you could pass him with a beautiful vintage color; If you are looking for something super-transparent and modern, it's not exactly his calling, but he knows to stay fairly quiet on rglages "LGERS"

SOUND QUALITY

In terms of pure sound quality, it is excellent btement and has no competitor in its price range. You must type in the channel strip at least 500 more expensive to find something that is a bit suprieur. But I say suprieur quad, not on quality but on dtails SPECIFICATIONS. For example, a LA610 will be slightly above that of the lamps and a compressor more "forgiving" a bit more scale in some applications, but if someone asks me how I feel the diffrence Overall, I would say 5%, and the 5% cost close to 900. So what is the best Q / P? OneQ clear (well I admit I broke down and I also took a LA610mKII, complte the review comes in the week). The thing to keep in mind is that this band if silent made in Europe, would cost at least 400 more.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had today, but I use his great ERRF dj for some time and if I resign on OneQ, because the few with the TwinQ Difference (mono , 4-band EQ instead of 3, DESS, enhancer, XLR faade), justify their acquisition, and the sound quality of the machine is absolutely excellent. No chance that my Joemeek go or whether they remain in my rack and are my "go to preamps."
