More Information

A transformer-coupled input stage with a mountain of headroom gives your signal a healthy helping of harmonic detail and brings out the best in all of your microphones. The compressor is an easy-to-use implementation of Manley's ELOP design, and is uniquely placed before the mic preamp in the signal path to make it virtually impossible to clip. The EQ is a broad, fat Baxandall-type circuit with tunable midrange to sculpt and shape your sound to fit with the rest of the mix, or pop it out on top of everything. The catch-all brickwall limiter at the end makes this box a perfect set-and-forget unit for all types of vocals and instruments, preventing ugly digital overs and distortion. If you're a bass player who wants to take this tone on the road, you should know that the CORE also sports an amazing DI circuit that makes use of all of this pro-level processing to bring the sound of the studio to your live show.
