LaChapell Audio Channel Strip for 500 Series
Digital Audio Labs
LaChapell Audio Channel Strip
The LaChapell Audio Channel Strip is the Swiss Army knife of 500 series modules. Each half of the two-bay module can function independently or in series so it’s like having multiple units in one. The first “bay” is dedicated to a pristine preamp with an integrated Hi-Z input. The second bay is the effects section with a mastering grade three band EQ and compressor followed by a trim or gain stage. Each section can be run in series, or bypassed completely for maximum flexibility. This unit shares some of the preamp/eq functionality of the LaChapell Audio 583E. With an expected street price of $499, the LaChapell Audio Channel Strip brings LaChapell boutique quality to the home and project recordist.
