Since its debut 14 years ago, The Channel Strip from API has proven itself to be a sonically superior and "must-have" addition for recording engineers around the world. The Original TCS was designed and built to give the user the best of API and as such featured a 512c Preamp, 527 Compressor, 550A EQ and a 325 line driver, all packed into a single rack unit.
With thousands of The Channel Strip in service, API announces the release of an updated version of the original unit, now called the TCS-II. Carefully retaining its hallmark circuit structure and unmistakable API sound, the new TCS-II Channel Strip offers the same outstanding performance but with a few notable upgrades:
"The improvements were largely made to bring the TCS-II Channel Strip into conformity with the rest of our product line," commented API's Account Manager Mark Seman. "These updates really help round out the TCS-II and I'm convinced will only add to its continued success."
Units are now shipping, and a full list of features and specifications can be found on the TCS-II Channel Strip product page.
