Description

Buzz Audio ARC-1.1
Advanced Recording Channel: Mic Preamp, DI Box, Equaliser and Compressor/Limiter

Owner's Manual

The ARC1.1 is a outboard channel strip combining a mic/line preamp, equaliser, compressor and limiter in one box. It has primarily been designed for recording and processing the human voice and sports a host of features that have been inspired by suggestions from audio professionals from around the globe. The ARC includes tried and trusted elements from other Buzz Audio products plus some new innovations specifically developed for this unit. Whilst aimed at vocal recording and processing, the ARC is a useful tool for all sorts of recording and mixing applications. With all the connection and routing options available, the ARC may be used as a seperate Mic Preamp, DI Box, Equaliser and Compressor/Limiter (optionally with sidechain EQ), all at the same time.
