With the classic combination of mic preamp, filter, EQ, dynamics, and A/D conversion, the Alpha Channel draws upon SSL's sonic legacy to provide an affordable analog channel strip designed to provide the perfect front end to your DAW.

The Alpha Channel packs in a sophisticated and versatile collection of features for its size and price; a high-quality mic pre with switched impedance for instrument or line sources, phantom power and phase invert. A VHD circuit for added analog tone, an Insert for streamlined additional processing, a three band EQ design utilising the classic SSL channel strip EQ sound and with selectable Bell curve for the LF, a High Pass Filter with 40/80/120Hz cutoff frequency selection, a switched lite limiter to prevent digital clipping, a high quality Analog to Digital audio converter, and an S/PDIF digital output.
