PreSonus Studio Channel
Preamp tube rack
Bought used to amplify an electric bass
Excellent product quality with full functions:

Results to amplify the bass are good, using an amplifier PA (B STRING) I have a big combo (500W with extension to 800W) good quality and at a reasonable cost

Purchase made with no regrets


Complete configuration
Manual clear and useful


Excellent dynamics
Warm and flexible


Bought in 2013 Used for 1 year I used in a small group
Excellent price / quality ratio

PreSonus Studio Channel
What technology is used? (Analog, digital, tube ...)

What is the connection?
XLR, Jack

What are the effects or types of effects available?
Compressor and jack

Is this a rack or rack MODEL?


The configuration is it simple?
Like any compressor and equalize all be a little Tater. Not many many, but there are the basics.

The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
In short, the manual is not really much, need to experiment to get the sound you want

Gets it easy to sound good?
With a little experience, yes.


The sound of your instruments or your microphone is properly reproduced?
We can say that it gives pep to my vocal takes, I also test on my guitar and the result is satisfactory.

The preamp is it clear or does it brings a stain?
We can say that the sound is warmer, but also a little colored, depending on the gain level of the lamp. Otherwise, friendly advice, change the original lamp, it is not really great. I replace it with a MesaBoogie and there it boosts much better.


How long have you use it?
7 months

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
fffiuuu I dabbled a mic Berhinger at 200, and it was crap ... I especially took to boost the sound of my Fast track that had a daubesque preamp. Here I'm glad

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
It is really nice, but assured that the voltage you are good enough, if the voltage drop this gadget is unusable. If the heat be a good half hour I believe that the sound comes out best.

How would you rate the quality / price?
I was lucky to have the equivalent of 200 euro, but if he was 299 I think I would not have taken, which was a shame given what I reported.

With experience, you do again this choice? ...
I do not know, I think that bought independently compressor, a good preamp, and a good equalize give me a better result, but the state and saw my finances, what I have for me.

Morphe777's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent"

PreSonus Studio Channel
I use 2: Analog and Digital. In general, there are lamps in all my gear. I love the heat of the lamp (probably subjective at times, but hey).
I'm XLR and jack the beats
There is an EQ and a compressor on it (that can be activated or not).
It is rack mountable model.
Moin as a point of entry into the facade is to instrument only. No XLR front. And it's pretty bad.


Yes if you know what each button. Basically you need to know to use a compressor and EQ. In the little manual, there are settings QLQ proposed works not too bad and a lot of info that helps to understand (in general, not in detail). What does each button. But the interface itself is very simple to use.
Base without doing anything more than the sound is good. And the more we play with and it improves the sound. There is plenty to do.


I connect over a low (mounted micro CREL), an Electro Acoustic Ibanez, and a PRS CE 24. Whatever the instrument, it really sounds.
My electro acoustic has no pre-amp (this is an acoustic piezo pickup with Electrifying afterwards). And ben not need pre-amp, the studio takes care of channel perfectly. It must be set for the correct one, otherwise it can quickly become aggressive as her.
Bass, only sends really good. But I think he lacks a little something QLQ. a kind of power and depth in the bass. May sil is likely to come from my settings. I put a VST plug and there I have a bass sound that suits me perfectly. (FYI I am not a bass player, so I have less requirement).
PRS, and although the happiness ....
For voice, I have mics that "shit", so I prefer not to issue any judgment (probably my next purchase)


2 years. I have not yet experimented with everything, but it does everything I ask him.
I find the value for money really not bad. It is a strip of really good quality, and is much better quality than those present in my motu ultralite (which are already very good).
Yes I will ever see this option because of the above models are overpriced, and I do not have the level to draw part of it.
A small point less for the low side which forces me to put a VST in the ass to get the sound I want.
