The Universal Audio 6176 Channel Strip combines the alluring, all-tube sounds of the legendary Bill Putnam-designed 610 microphone preamp, with the signature FET punchy compression of their 1176LN, to create the ultimate recording channel strip.
The Universal Audio 6176 Channel Strip combines two studio classics in one rack-mountable chassis. Whether you're looking to add natural warmth to lifeless vocal takes, or add drive and grit to a guitar recording, the 6176 delivers the timeless sound of two UAD classics.
The preamp section on the 6176 Channel Strip is packed with features, such as mic, line, and hi-Z inputs; two bands of shelving EQ; and a 15dB pad. The dynamics section maintains all the classic features found on the classic 1176LN. Each unit has dedicated ins and outs and can be used independently in Split mode or in series in Join mode via a front-panel switch.
The warm, smooth tones of this mic preamp design — employed to record everyone from Adele, Coldplay, Frank Sinatra to Van Halen I — and the unique characteristics of the compressor, are two major reasons why the 6176 is found in studios around the world. The 1176LN may well be the most loved compressor in history. Its trademark lightning-quick attack and release times and the tone of it's Class A output amplifier have enhanced countless recordings over the last thirty-five years.
