JZ Track to be made by SPL

JZ Track channel strip from JZ MicrophonesJZ Track channel strip from JZ MicrophonesJZ Microphones, the Latvian pro audio manufacturers, are known for their unusual Black Hole mic (http://sosm.ag/dec08-jz-blackhole) as well as affordable high-quality condenser mics like the Vintage 11 (http://sosm.ag/jan12-jz-vintage11). They are now expanding their product range with their first ever channel strip, dubbed the JZ Track, which is made in Germany by SPL.

The JZ Track is a 1U mono rackmount preamp with a de-esser, compressor/limiter, a three-band EQ and an output stage with metering. Ideal for recording vocals or instruments, the JZ Track can also be linked with a second JZ Track for stereo operation of the compressors. In addition, JZ Microphones will offer an optional A-D card with output for both ADAT and S/PDIF.

SPL have based the design on their own Track One channel strip (http://sosm.ag/apr02-spl-trackone) but with some cosmetic and internal refinements intended to complement JZ’s range of mics.

The JZ Track should be shipping from February 1, 2014 and will cost $999.
