6176 Vintage Channel Strip
Oh man!! How I love my 6176. The joy of a 610 and an 1176 together. Smashing combo!
I never expected this box to be such a versatile tone shaping unit. I almost double my mic count with certain type mics, like ribbons and some dynamics thanks to the impedance switch. And slightly compressing going in does absolute wonders to anything I put through it, everything just hits its spot in the mix.
It can be tricky to dial in at first, but once you get the hang of it... WOW !!
Love it !! Cheers UA!
I have owned the UA 6176 since 2008 and, even with a number of other preamps in the rack, this one is used on every project! The joining of the creaminess of the 610 preamp and the transparent (and when you need it, not so transparent sounds from the 1176 make this a must have for any serious studio. SOmetimes I feel as if I should purchase another for back-up...just in case!
All I have expected and more... pretty flexible. Due to the split function you have two decent pieces of gear in one box. I'm in love.
I use this unit (I actually have two!) every time I track. Today they were used on acoustic guitars to make them sit in the track right where they needed to be. AND on a wurlitzer track to make it match up with the punch of the electric guitar. I can't imagine not having them available when I need them!
great product.. love the sound. Old school gear is now back.
