Retro Instruments Power Strip - Tube Recording Channel
The Retro Instruments Power Strip is a Class A tube mic channel strip designed to emulate “vintage” sounding analogue desks and variable tube compressors in a single rack unit. Built to interface with all types of mic and instrument, yet still perform with a warm musical sound, the Power Strip is a versatile piece of outboard gear that will add new life to your recordings.
With passive Pultec style EQ and classic British variable tube compression/limiting, which can both be independently bypassed, the PowerStrip is a great sounding unit for all studios and users.
