The Chandler Limited Channel is a recreation of several classic circuits and combines a TG2 pre amp section with an equalizer that was redesigned from an equalization circuit used in the TG12410 Transfer or mastering console. The mastering counterpart to the original "Beatles desks". Our version has been remade using original design information and circuit board drawings as provided by Abbey Road to ensure extreme authenticity! We've even remolded the old TG style pointer knobs.
The active portions of the unit use the same discrete amplifiers and transformers as in the TG1 Limiter and TG2 pre amp. The passive equalizer portion of the EQ is an all inductor design and offers sweet high frequencies with large inductor based lows, and a very high "Q" mid cut section. Designed to sound like a fine musical instrument instead of a modern surgical tool, it's sound is very comparable to Pultec and Lang program eqs but made from TG circuits. A simple description would be a TG Pultec with a TG pre amp thrown in...
A low boost control with 20db of gain and a select switch that combines shelf and peak settings. Both peak and shelf characteristics are inductor based, and on the peak settings "Q" gets sharper with more boost. 50, 70, 100, 200 peak. 100, 200 shelf. 100hz low cut.
A mid frequency EQ with 20db of cut with six points set at very sharp "Q". Specially designed to fix problem areas. All inductor based. 350, 400, 500, 600, 700, 850 hz.
A high boost control with 18db of gain and a select switch that combines shelf and peak settings. Shelf characteristic is resistor capacitor based and the peak types are inductor style. 16k, 12k, 8.1k, 6.8k shelf. 5.8 k, 3.9k, 2.2k, 1.8k, 1.2k peak. HI-Q switch for peaks.
Combines 2.4k ohm mic input and and a 10k line input which is selectable with the line switch. The fifteen position switch attenuates mic and line and gives a large range of control for normal and not so normal uses. mic gain -15db to +65db line gain -25db to +45db.
Functioning as a console fader, this control is placed after the input stage and before the out put stage. This allows for trimming of their input signal, as well as allowing the user to run the input very hot (for extra coloration) without distorting the recorder.
