The z-CL6 was designed from the ground up specifically for the surround-sound mastering suite for the ultimate in surround mastering. Thr z-CL6 incorporates Z-Systems’s proprietary digital signal processing algorithms, intuitive user interfaces, and the highest-quality parts. Both units feature six channels of 24-bit /96 kHz digital processing and the ability to handle multiple simultaneous sample rates and wordwidths within each channel group.
The z-CL6 offers six channels of compression/limiting with variable ratio, attack, release, threshold, and make-up gains per channel. In addition, the z-CL6 features a sophisticated linking mechanism whereby the different channel groups can be custom-tailored to trigger and compress in unison or separately.
The z-CL6 features POW-r wordlength reduction and MIDI automation for snapshot automation. The z-Q6/z-CL6 are available individually or together as a suite.
