500CS CHANNEL STRIP
A near unbeatable value for the professional recording studio, project studio, or a recording studio bedroom, the LaChapell 500CS is a complete 500 series channel strip. Featuring a pristine transformerless solid state preamp, high and low pass filters, full 3-band EQ and VCA compressor in one unit, the 500CS is essentially a 500 series preamp, 500 series EQ and 500 series compressor all in one unit.
Each “half” of the unit can function independently for maximum value and versatility. Track with the preamp, eq and compressor together, then switch to independent mode to use the eq and compressor as an outboard 500 series eq and 500 series compressor.
