The PreSonus RC 500 channel strip gives you the custom-designed FET compressor and semi-parametric EQ developed for the acclaimed ADL 700 tube channel strip, along with a new solid-state high-gain Class A preamp that delivers amazingly transparent, detailed audio with vanishingly low distortion. Built with high-grade components throughout, the full-featured RC 500 sports a balanced analog insert, phantom power, a highpass filter, a -20dB pad, and more. Equip your rack with a delightfully affordable channel strip that sounds like it costs a fortune - the PreSonus RC 500.PreSonus RC 500 Channel Strip at a Glance
- A superb-sounding preamp
- Refined, musical equalization
- Great-sounding FET compressor
Solid-state or tube, that is the question. At AudioBuy.com.au Australia, we know that each has its place in a well-rounded studio. Compared with a tube preamp, the PreSonus RC 500's solid-state preamp gives you better definition at the low and high extremes of its frequency response range. The lows are tighter, and the highs crisper, giving you a transparent-sounding, eminently musical signal with plenty of "air."Refined, musical equalization
The PreSonus RC 500's 3-band semi-parametric EQ was specifically designed to match the preamp and compressor. Sporting isolated filters and optimized, per-band Q, this equalizer lets you shape your signal subtly and without undesirable artifacts. This EQ even comes with a pedigree: it uses the same circuitry as the semi-parametric EQ in the ADL 700, which has garnered rave reviews.Great-sounding FET compressor
With fully variable attack, release, and threshold controls (as well as hard bypass), the PreSonus RC 500's FET compressor gives you tons of flexibility without letting you get into too much trouble. What we mean is that it's hard to make this thing sound bad. Again, the compressor design is the one found in the coveted ADL 700 - so it's already a winner, right from the get-go.PreSonus RC 500 Channel Strip Features
