Overstayer Modular Channel 8755DS
Stereo Analogue Channel Strip
- product Description
- Additional Information
The Overstayer Modular Channel Stereo 8755DS is a versatile stereo analogue channel strip designed for tracking and mixing and offering anything from subtle layered enhancement to complete sonic destruction.
The Overstayer Module Channel Stereo 8755DS includes a stunning preamp inspired by legendary Helios consoles, High-pass and Low-pass filters, two-band equalisation, VCA compression, Harmonics and a comprehensive mixer matrix for sophisticated series and parallel mixing.
The preamp lets you choose between balanced line, microphone and high impedance inputs to accommodate your requirements as a tracking or mixing tool. The Preamp provides more than 40dB of gain using discrete circuitry with independent left and right controls.
The balanced line signal can be routed through the preamp to drive the front end. Direct outputs are provided at the preamp stage and can be used independently with Line input selected.
The following filter section provides resonant high-pass and low-pass filters, inspired by filters typically found in synthesizers and offer a control over the frequency response and its resonance. This is augmented by a two-band EQ with low and high shelves. Three frequency points for each band are provided to quickly shape the sound. The EQ can be used in the main signal but also in the compression side-chain and the Dry/EQ Feed.
The VCA Compressor provides a choice between Peak and RMS. Attack and Release controls are provided with three positions for each and a side-chain HPF is also provided. The Behavior knob transforms the compression curve and gives you a wide range of options from smooth levelling to explosive mayhem thanks to its use of inverted ratios.
The Harmonics section comprises of three stages and can be engaged in any combination from the subtle MAS low order harmonics, SAT for a more obvious saturated sound to the Hex mode which provides higher harmonics and layered distortion.
Finally, a powerful Mixer Matrix lets you send independent stereo feeds to before the filter or after the EQ, while the Comp Feed lets you send the signal out pre-harmonics while the Sat Feed gives you the full flavour of the entire signal path.
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN 8755DS AND 8755DM
While the two units look very similar, there are some differences that will dictate which unit is right for you. The Overstayer 8755DS is the standard version and comes with Balanced Line and high impedance inputs. This the unit to go to if you are planning to use it as a mixing tool or a guitar/synth front end processor. The 8755DM adds two transformer coupled mic inputs with phantom power, pad and polarity reversal switches at the front.
