The discrete Class A DI. The DI is also taken from the highly acclaimed design found in the Heritage Audio 73JR, an all-discrete Class A JFET circuit in front of the microphone transformer, giving you all of the color and weight you could ask for. The DI also includes a passive thru output to feed a separate amplifier. The BritStrip EQ features 3 Vinkor pot core inductors in the mid-band and high pass filter sections.
The impact is hard to believe with extreme boosts being exceptionally musical. The mid-band is great for sculpting fat and punchy snare, kick, guitars, vocals - you name it! No need to be subtle like you would with most EQs - BritStrip doesn't sound phasey or loses headroom in extreme settings. The inductor-based low-pass filter, directly taken from the 73 design, lets you control out of range low end - without affecting the quality of your desired frequencies.
The high and low shelves have been extended to include a bell mode - making them more versatile than ever before. The diode bridge bus compressor needs little introduction, as it's the same compressor found in the multi award-nominated Heritage Audio Successor. Diode bridge compression, a 60-year-old patent, took on a whole new life with the expanded features and incredible fast attack/release times of the Successor. With BritStrip, this powerful compressor design is perfect to use for tracking, thanks to its blend control and elaborate sidechain filter. This gives you plenty of tracking potential, as you can give instruments that "record-ready" dynamics as performers monitor - giving them a finished "real-time feel" as they perform.
The compressor section provides plenty of sidechain flexibility, with 5 frequency options, and an external sidechain input. And if that weren't enough flexibility, two BritStrips can have their compressors linked for the ultimate stereo tracking solution. The BritStrip allows for compression and equalizer routing.EQing pre-compression makes the compression detector more sensitive to the boosted frequencies and less sensitive to those cut. Inversely, EQing post-compression makes the detector insensitive to the eq settings. High-end, 3-stage 73-style microphone/DI preamplifier with 80 dB of British-style gain.
