Tl audio to launch m1 tubetracker firewire at aes
This years October AES convention in San Francisco will see TL Audio launching a brand new version of the M1 Tube tracker console.
The M1-F has the same preamp and EQ design as the original M1 console (originally based on the larger M4 tube console), with the preamp giving a discrete transistor first stage coupled with a ECC83 tube triode second stage for low noise, great frequency response and smooth warm sound. The EQ is 3 band with swept mid’s and is a fantastic ‘sweetening’ EQ allowing creative control and use of smooth, musical EQ. Each channel also has a direct output and balanced insert points. There are 3 tube stages from input to output, one at the preamp stage and a dual triode stage on the master bus. The master section has been improved too, now featuring a mono button for use when mixing and also balanced insert points for mixdown, summing and mastering alongside the original features like speaker switching and two 2 track returns.
The most exciting new feature of this console though will be its ability to be fitted with TL Audio’s latest, newly designed, digital interface – the DO-F card. The addition of the DO-F card will enable all channel inputs and outputs and main outs to be accessed via a single Firewire cable connected to your computer without the need for an additional interface or soundcard.
The DO-F is a high quality AD/DA board that can be factory or dealer fitted to the M1-F 8 and 12 channel. It gives firewire connectivity to the console and allows the user to access all I/O from their Mac or PC based DAW. The DO-F works at 24 bit and 44.1, 48, 88.2 or 96kHz sample rates.
The M1-F is available in 8 and 12 channel configurations, is modular and is hand built in England. Come by and see the wonders of analogue and digital technology combine at booth number 1544 at the 125th AES show 2nd-5th October 2008.
