Universal Audio

A truly pro solution for your project studio!

The Universal Audio 6176 Channel Strip gives you the classic sound of the legendary 610 Modular Console. Advances in digital recording technology are providing users with tremendous power and flexibility for increasingly less money. All too often, however, the audio quality of these systems is limited by their input stages. Many users who demand the power and flexibility of today's recording technology find themselves yearning for the warmth and tone of yesteryear's hand-built analog circuitry. Now with the release of the 6176, Universal Audio combines their highly acclaimed 610 tube microphone preamp with their legendary 1176LN compressor to create the ultimate single-channel signal path for everything from vocals to vibraphones.

  • Combines the acclaimed 610 tube mic pre with the legendary 1176
  • Variable-impedance input
  • Transparent compression
