TRIO integrates all essential outboard components for quality recording and monitoring. A lot of attention was paid to sonic detail: The channel strip section provides a high quality Class A microphone-input with phantom power and an instrument input developed by Mindprint’s sister company Hughes & Kettner. The EQ’s section was inspired by renowned vintage designs and delivers that much coveted “expensive” vocal sound. The compressor’s unique Adaptive ResponseTM mode is taken directly from Mindprint’s high-end DTC Dual Tube Channel for superior results – requiring just one knob! TRIO includes all essential mixing features required for a typical home recording setup: Mic./Instrument, Stereo Line, Stereo AUX and DAW Return may all be used simultaneously. The dual headphone amp has separate volume controls, and the latency-free monitoring mixer ensures instant access. TRIO also sports a mixing desk’s complete monitoring section with talkback, MONO, DIM and MUTE functions, outputs for 3 pairs of speakers - and a dedicated master volume knob. The on-board S/PDIF digital interface allows direct connection with most setups, like Apple’s G5 and many PC and Mac compatible audio interfaces.
GREAT SOUND - TRIO™ provides world-class channel strip features with Class-A microphone input, Hughes & Kettner® Instrument input, 2 band analog Vocal EQ and Analog Compressor with Adaptive Response™ automatic processing.
