Discrete - Class A - Modular - Analogue Console

Ark 848

The ultimate small-footprint console with:
- 8 high-quality Mic pres
- 8 DAW return inputs
- 8 dual audio path channels
- Multi EQ with high-cut filter, low cut-filter, 4-band inductive EQ and swing EQ per channel
- Each EQ section usable on either audio path
- extensive Control Room Monitor section
- 16 stereo multipurpose inputs (32 track summing)
- direct inputs to master buses, aux master buses and group master buses

Getting each of these parts separately will cost a lot more than the Ark 848 does.
