The Overstayer Modular Channel 8755DM is a flexible stereo Mic, Line and Instrument channel designed to add a subtle enhancement or complete sonic mayhem. Ideal for tracking and mixing it includes a preamp section, Low- and high-pass filters, EQ, compression and distortion.
The Overstayer Modular Channel 8755DM boasts a preamp loosely inspired by Helios’ Type69 mic pre providing 40dB of discrete gain and provides a choice of microphone, balanced line and high impedance inputs. Direct outputs let you pick the signal directly after the preamp stage and can be used independently when Line input is selected.
Next are high-pass and low-pass filters, inspired by filters found on synthesizers. They include a resonance control to let you boost the cut-off frequency before the filter slope to create a really tight sound.
Immediately after the filter section, a two-band EQ provides both low and high shelves. Each band has three frequency points for shaping your tone quickly. In addition to the main signal, the EQ can also be used as a side-chain filter for the compressor stage.
The compressor stage uses the VCA architecture similar to that of the Stereo Voltage Control. It provides Peak and RMS detection and Attack and Release controls with three positions each. A Behavior control affects the compression curve ranging from slow levelling type to more extreme settings thanks to the use of negative ratios.
A three-stage Harmonics section comprises can be engaged in any combination with subtle enhancing with the MAS low order harmonics, the more coloured sound of SAT to the extreme settings of Hex.
A final Mixer Matrix provides flexible routing between parallel and in series processing.
