API TCS-II The Channel Strip
Since its debut 14 years ago, The Channel Strip from API has proven itself to be a sonically superior and “must-have” addition for recording engineers around the world. The Original TCS was designed and built to give the user the best of API and as such featured a 512c Preamp, 527 Compressor, 550A EQ and a 325 line driver, all packed into a single rack unit. With thousands of The Channel Strip in service, API announces the release of an updated version of the original unit, now called the TCS-II.
