The little paper manual, which is very useful, is included along with the AC power plug. The JOEMEEK PROCHANNEL is an input conditioner. A microphone or musical instrument preamplifier designed to bridge the gap between the performing musician and the recording studio.
It has been designed specially to be easy to operate, yet will give the finest professional'glitter' to the sound; but without hours of tweaking knobs and switches with unrecognisable names! It's my theory that'big' sounds can only be produced if the lower frequencies in an input amplifier are kept absolutely flat and under control. To achieve this, the JOEMEEK PROCHANNEL has an extended frequency range down well below 20Hz. This ensures that there are no sudden phase shifts in the low end. The proof of the theory is that it sounds great!
In the mid 1970s I designed a range of mixers specifically for Independent Local radio stations and the BBC. One of the specification clauses insisted on by them was an extreme overload margin on the microphone amplifier.
The reason was that although momentary overloads (transients) are not audible, they have an effect on the quality of the sound you hear. A high overload margin amplifier just sounds better. Nowadays, many of these notions have been forgotten and'quality' electronics is getting rarer and rarer. But the JOEMEEK range of Studio channels and the PROCHANNEL apply these professional rules and you can hear the difference!VC3 Pro Channel - User's guide. Combination with a low-noise line amplifier; the overall design produces a virtually unburstable input stage with excellent low noise characteristics. An interesting fact is that the cost and quality of the parts in the ProChannel input amplifier are on a par with those used in the very top professional mixers and microphone amplifier outboards. As well as giving the best performance with keyboards, guitars and basses, the ProChannel is also designed to work well with the best capacitor microphones; it is particularly good with the Neumann range, the AKG C3000 and C414, Microtech Gefell, and Audio Technica.
