The classic sounds of the 610 preamp and 1176 compressor, with eq? It must be the Universal Audio 6176 channel strip!

  • Analogue channel strip is the ideal front end and mixing tool for your studio
  • All-tube mic preamp section derived from legendary Bill Putnam-designed 610 modular console
  • Signature 1176LN Class A FET compressor section
  • "Split" or "Join" switch allows separate or series operation of the preamp and compressor
  • High and Low frequency shelving EQ
  • Variable impedance Input, Gain, and Output levels
  • Mic, balanced Line, and Hi-Z inputs
  • Stereo interconnection via 1176-SA

The Universal Audio 6176 Vintage Channel Strip combines the alluring, all-tube sounds of the legendary Bill Putnam-designed 610 microphone preamp, with the signature FET compression of our 1176LN, to create the ultimate recording channel strip.

The warm, smooth tones of this mic preamp design and the unique characteristics of the compressor, are two major reasons why the Universal Audio 6176 is found in studios around the world.

  • £2475.00

    Put Rupert Neve-designed EQ and compression in your studio with the RND Shelford 5051 inductor eq & compressor

    • Shelford series eq and compressor
    • The 5051 uses a custom tapped inductor with selected capacitors to form the mid range equalizer band, and the shelf curves are based on Rupert’s vintage modules, including very similar frequency choices
    • Each EQ section also uses low feedback class-A discrete electronics to prevent low level artifacts and harshness from detracting from the tonal shaping
    • The EQ, however, is a modern design with advantages offered by techniques that were not possible 35 years ago along with improvements in electronic components currently available, and should not be considered a clone
    • The 5051 Compressor also features a discrete class A signal path proven used in the Portico Series, with individually controllable threshold, attack, release, makeup gain, ratio, side chain HPF, Feed-Forward / Feed-back selection and Peak/RMS detection modes
    • The 5051 also has the ability to switch between feed-forward and feed-back modes
  • £2475.00

    Not a clone, the RND Shelford 5052 takes the famed heritage, but builds on it with the best of contemporary electronics

    • Microphone preamp & inductor eq
    • 72dB of discrete, class-A gain coupled with serious square-core transformers
    • Unlike the classics however, the output transformer features the Silk Red / Blue and Texture controls from the Portico II Series to hone the harmonic content and tonality of the output stage
    • Sweepable 20-250Hz high-pass filter, Mic / Line selection, 48V phantom power, and polarity reverse
    • Following the preamplifier, the 5052 has a transformer-coupled output, which allows the 5052 to feed a tape machine or DAW directly from the mic pre while still using the EQ and Silk / Texture in a dedicated analogue mix path such as that found with a 5088, 5060 or vintage console. This output can also be used to insert a separate compressor between the mic pre and the EQ, or it can allow the 5052 to work with two separate sources
    • The 3-band, custom-tapped inductor EQ on the 5052 was inspired by RND’s favorite portions of Rupert’s vintage EQ designs
    • The 5052’s high frequency band is a hybrid vintage / modern design, blending inductor circuitry from the 1073 with capacitor-based topologies to achieve the vintage tones with enhanced control
  • £2514.00
