Millennia STT-1 Origin
The Millennia STT-1 Origin is an in depth channel strip that is billed as a "recording system."  The unit contains a four band EQ, compressor, and de-esser.  This is an analog piece of gear that has both XLR and 1/4 inch connections as well as a variety of other options.  This is indeed in rack mountable form and will take up two rack spaces.


The configuration of the Millennia STT-1 Origin definitely has a whole lot going on, but is definitely welcome considering how versatile this unit is.  The basic parameters are easy to locate and most of them will be recognizable for those who have experience with channel strip like.  While it would take too long to go through all of the different sections and parameters available on the STT-1, one feature that sticks out to me is the rare ability to control both tube gain and solid state gain on the mic pre, which allows for getting some interesting sounds.  I haven't seen the manual for this, but would definitely recommend having it around as this is a detailed piece of gear.


The sound quality of the Millennia STT-1 Origin absolutely top notch through and through.  Everything on this channels trip has full bodied sound and I can't say that I've found an application where I wouldn't want to at least try this channel strip if I had access to it.  The mic pre is definitely of top tier quality as is the EQ, compressor, and de-esser.  All of the features have some in depth parameters, some of which are unique and some of which will be very familiar to experienced users.  Overall, this is a great sounding unit and in terms of sound quality I have no complaints whatsoever.


While I wish I had the Millennia STT-1 Origin more at my disposal, when I have been able to use it in the recording studio it has been an absolute pleasure.  However, this is defiintely an expensive piece of equipment and is probably only accessible for professionals.  Having said that, I do think that if you are a home studio looking for a channel strip to get an overall better tone and are willing to make an investment, that the Millennia STT-1 Origin is a great way to go...

Millennia STT-1 Origin
Technology used: Analog transistors Class A (SS) and / or lamps.
Functions: Pr-amp, EQ, Compressor, Desseur.
Connections: In faade: between instrument, Rear: XLR microphone input, line input XLR / jack, XLR line output, 2 x XLR / jack.
It is a 2U rackmount MODEL, plutt long and heavy.
Everything is on the site of Millennia.


The configuration is fairly simple. The modules are separate from each other, we can choose to use it or not. Then you can choose from SS or lamps.
Many paramtres accessible, especially to the legalization (Settings, boost / cut ...) and compression (attack, release, ratio, threshold ...) to get the best of the CONTRL sound.
This gives a more than excellent, the source is "embellished" by prampli. The compressor is good and does plutt "pump" not too my taste. The desseur can not be used at the same time as the compressor, but it did not because I did not gn the usefulness of desseur.
The manual is clear and sufficient (in English for me)


I mainly used the strip to record my bass, and frankly I've never had a better sound with this prampli. No wonder when you know that Anthony Jackson also uses it with his contrabass ...
The prampli respects the timbre of the instrument and provides an enjoyable heat trs. Basically you get the sound of the bass, but much better! The low breathing remains prcise, but is warmer, the grain is trs trs good (my ears).
The compressor is plutt good (to me), I've never used the REALLY desseur, as almost always j'uilisais the compressor.
By using this prampli SS is REALLY excellent, trs trs lamps is good, but strange sounds better to my ears in SS. I therefore used mainly in this mode.


I've had just under two years.
What I like most is the sound of the SS prampli in Class A.
What I like least, nothing except that I do not sound ingnieur Aguri to make the most of the quality of the machine.
Acqurir before I could play in a TL Audio 5051 V2, a MindPrint Envoice MKII, and an Avalon VT737 sp.
The noise level is much more natural than the Avalon (for my part I prfre), which is above the trs trs 5051 and Envoice whether SS Class A or lamps.
The report qualitprix is ​​what it is. It's expensive but it's a great quality equipment trs.
With exprience, but I would do this choice is primarily a appreil ingnieurs for sound, for my part I am a bass player and I do not prtention the best use its possibilities.
The STT-1 is the Rolls Royce of strips!
