Universal Audio 6176 Vintage Channel Strip

The Universal Audio 6176 combines one channel of the legendary 610 amplifier with an updated 1176LN to create the ultimate single channel signal path. The 610 amplifier is packed with features, such as Mic, Line and hi-Z inputs, two bands of shelving EQ, and a 15dB pad. The 1176 side maintains all the same features found on the Classic 1176LN. Each unit has dedicated ins and outs and can be used independently in "Split" mode, or as a complete channel in "Join" mode.

Vintage Sound in One Box:

Advances in digital recording technology are providing users with tremendous power and flexibility for increasingly less money. All too often, however, the audio quality of these systems is limited by their input stages. Many users who demand the power and flexibility of today's recording technology find themselves yearning for the warmth and tone of yesteryear's hand-built analog circuitry. Now with the release of the Universal Audio 6176, Universal Audio, for the first time, combines their highly acclaimed 610 tube microphone preamp with their legendary 1176LN compressor to create the ultimate single channel signal path for everything from vocals to vibraphones.

610B Mic Pre:

The 2-610 microphone and instrument preamplifier has received praise from many corners. Michael Cooper, in his review for Mix Magazine, called it "hands-down, the most dimensional mic preamp I've ever heard..." Peter Wade, engineer/producer who has worked with acts ranging from Wyclef Jean to Jennifer Lopez, said simply, "This box rocks." The Universal Audio 6176 mic preamp sections maintains the quality and character of the 2-610 while adding high-tension power regulation for improved bass response and a front-panel 15db pad switch.

1176LN Limiting Amplifier:

The 1176LN may well be the most loved compressor in history. Its trademark lightning-quick attack and release times and the tone of it's Class A output amplifier have enhanced countless recordings over the last thirty-five years. We've recreated the 1176LN for the compressor section of the Universal Audio 6176 with the same exacting, attention to detail and tradition we use on our 1176LN. The resulting character, heritage and tone simply cannot be found on other channel strip units.
